There’s no question Lady Gaga’s fans love her, and there’s little doubt she cares for them back. Mother Monster herself has launched a new imitative to promote emotional wellness for today’s youth.
The ‘Emotional Revolution’ project is a partnership between the star’s own Born This Way foundation and Yale University’s Center for Emotional Intelligence.
“I know what it’s like to feel depressed, to feel humiliated, to feel isolated, and I know too many people that, no matter who they are, where they come from, they’re feeling the same way that I do,” Gaga says in the video. “It was so beautiful in a way that our sadness bonded us at the shows and I so badly wanted to understand why that cloud was there at all. It’s okay to feel different. It’s okay to feel like you’re not part of this planet, I challenge you to be your biggest fan. Tell the world how you feel, but more importantly, tell them how you want to feel.”
