Lady Gaga Wins GRAMMYs & A BAFTA All In The Same Night
'A Star Is Born' racked up the accolades while Gaga became a meme queen in the process...
How was your Sunday? Bet it wasn’t as good as Lady Gaga’s... Yesterday the singer bagged herself some MAJOR awards on both sides of the Atlantic, picking up three GRAMMYs and a BAFTA!
Gaga kicked her day off learning that A Star Is Born had won the BAFTA in the Original Music category.
“I can’t believe we just won Best Original Music @BAFTA ‘s,” she tweeted.” “I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammy’s to show them our love as well. We made a film about music. This means the world to me. Thank u to all our fans we love u so much, we wouldn’t be here without u #BAFTAs”
Repping the movie in London, Bradley Cooper was there to accept the award on their behalf:
Over in LA, Gaga then took home the triple, winning Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)’ as well as as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media for ‘Shallow’.
“a Grammy for Joanne is more than me & my family could ever dream of. I sang that version in one take, & poured my entire life & soul into it. Thank you so much for this gift I am completely shocked. 2nd Grammy win of the night I am so overwhelmed by this kindness.”
In her acceptance speech for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for ‘Shallow’, the singer took the opportunity to urge people to take care of each other’s mental health.
“I just want to say I’m so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues, they’re so important. 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.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Gaga also became a meme queen following her glam-rock performance of ‘Shallow’ when her close up camera move spawned a treasure trove of hilarious memes:
We love you Gaga!
