Lady Gaga took time after winning an Oscar to send some love our way!
Gaga spoke to news.com.au following her Oscar win yesterday for Best Original Song.
Gaga she hoped her Australian fans would “feel a joy” at this weekend’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in Sydney.
“What I would like to say is: one of the hardest things in life is to be brave enough to be yourself,” she said.
“I wish to everyone that is going to that celebration to feel a joy inside of them. That’s actually what Bradley said to me yesterday right before we did our last rehearsal for this performance of Shallow.
He said, ‘Let’s just drop a little bit of joy.’ And I said, ‘Okay’. And turns out, joy did a whole lot for me … I hope that everyone there in Sydney feels so much joy and celebrates all sexual identities.”
Being a longtime advocate for the LGBTIQ community, the songstress also pressed the need for categories at award shows to be more inclusive.
“I also have a true dream in our future as we evolve as humanity that these award shows will not be male and female but that we include everyone,” she said.
