Lady Gaga has been up to her usual busy, weird antics lately—you know, prepping for the release of ARTPOP, making songs with R. Kelly and oversharing on Instagram. In fact, a few of her recent posts on the photo sharing network caused so much concern at Instagram HQ that they reached out the pop star.

The Instagram email came after Gaga shared a few melancholy lyrics to her new song, "Dope." 

"My heart would break without you/ Might not awake without you/ Been hurtin' low from living high for so long/ I'm sorry and I love you," one note read. The following post was similar: "Toast to one last puff and two last regrets/ Three spirits and 12 lonely steps/ Up heaven's stairway to gold/ Mine, myself like coal/ A mountain of a soul/ Each day I cry/ I feel so low from living so high."

A day after the posts, Gaga tweeted, "omg at this email INSTAGRAM just sent me," along with a snippet of the email in question.

The email from Instagram reads, "Members of the Instagram community have raised concerns for your well-being after seeing posts you've shared. We're reaching out to provide you with some important safety information."

We're guessing that Lady Gaga's totally fine considering her WTF reaction toward the email. And all of her tweets since have been about how excited she is for ARTPOP's release. But it's good to know Instagram is looking out for the sad pop stars of the world. We wonder if they ever reached out to Drake...
