Lady Gaga extends her musically crafted hands to reach the pop singer Billie Eilish as her confidant and mentor in the music industry. As they say, you should make friends in the circle of alligators of music in order to survive. Mother Monster openly expresses her support to young artists these days and more than willing to walk with them to give guidance in the blinding lights of cameras and fame.
Recently, Gaga released her most anticipated comeback with her 6t album Chromatica which is star-studded, full of collaborative crafts. Artists inlcuing Ariana Grande, Blackpink and Elton John spiced up the album and lift the project to success. Currently, the album is still the reigning number one for most streamed album in different music platforms. The pop superstar proves to us once again that she is versatile and adaptive with the new artists of today.
The ‘Stupid Love’ pop superstar has revealed that she willingly sent the 18-year-old musician flowers after her Grammy winning streak, and reached out to be her ally in the music industry.
Lady Gaga has also revealed that she once offered to be Billie Eilish’s mentor, after finding out that the 18-year-old didn’t have a female ally in the music industry as of the moment.
In an exclusive interview with Apple Music before her album was released, Gaga said she sent Eilish flowers after her triumphant winning streak at the Grammy’s last January, which saw her Eilish sweep all five major awards, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year. The songstress also sent Eilish a friendly note which contains congratulatory remarks and offering her mentorship. And as of the moment, it’s currently unknown if Eilish has opened the door to Gaga’s offer.
“For me, it’s healing because it hurt me that I didn’t get that,” Gaga explained. “I’m going to be that for someone else. I’ve had a harder time with older women in terms of having a female mentor. Other than Celine Dion and Carole King, it’s proven difficult to have someone who would show me the way. So I really hope that young female artists – or young artists of any gender identity or sexual identity – will know I am rooting for them.”
These past weeks, Eilish openly expresses her sentiments and her support of the widespread protest across the country, which is the Black Lives Matter protests, which were ignited the dying fire of justice for the murder of George Floyd on May 25. The singer has joined other female artists Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and more in signing an open letter in support of Democrats’ Justice in Policing Act and demands for justice for the victim of violence. The singer posted her personal statement on her Instagram.
“If I hear one more white person say, ‘aLL liVeS maTtEr’, one more fucking time I’m gonna lose my fucking mind,” Eilish wrote. “Will you shut the fuck uuuuuuuuuuup??? No one is saying your life doesn’t matter. No one is saying literally anything at all about you. Right now in this moment, we have to address hundreds of years of oppression of Black people. Black lives fucking matter.”
Gaga has also expressed her support for the movement and has done certain causes for the deprived justice of Floyd’s death, writing in a statement: “We MUST show our love for the Black community. As a white, privileged woman, I take an oath to stand by that. We haven’t, as a privileged community, done enough to fight racism and stand up for those people who are being killed by it.”
