During the opening segment of the Grammys, Gaga acknowledged the power of music as a mode of self expression alongside Michelle Obama, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez. “They said I was weird, that my look, my choices, my sound, that it wouldn’t work,” she said. “But music told me not to listen to them. Music took my ears, took my hands, my voice and my soul, and it led me to all of you and to my Little Monsters who I love so much.”

Gaga used her acceptance speech for the latter award to address the stigma surrounding mental health. “If I don’t get another chance to say this, I just want to say I’m so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues,” she told the audience. “A lot of artists deal with that. And we gotta take care of each other. So, if you see somebody that’s hurting, don’t look away. And if you’re hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and go tell somebody and take them up in your head with you.”
