Lady Gaga is taking the mental health of her fans very, very, very seriously.
So seriously, in fact, that Mother Monster is offering counseling to her Little Monsters at stops on the North American leg of her Born This Way Ball tour, set to kick off January 11 in Vancouver, BC. The Born Brave Bus will be available on site to give support to at-risk or in-need youth. It's like tailgating, but way more healthy. Gaga explained in a new Facebook post...
"For those wondering about the 'counseling' at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite. At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends. There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun. BornBrave Bus is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all.
I feel like most kids don't look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around 'help' and make it fun. I'm counting down the days till the Ball starts up again..."
What's next? Dental insurance? 401K? It certainly pays to be one of Gaga's Monsters.
