Lady Gaga to provide counselling on 'Born This Way' tour
'The Edge Of Glory' singer announces free treatment on BornBrave Bus
Lady Gaga has said fans can receive free counselling at her future 'Born This Way' tour concerts.
'The Edge Of Glory' singer announced on Twitter that fans going to her shows will be able to attend the BornBrave bus before the gig, to discuss mental health problems with qualified professionals and "break the stigmas around 'help'".
For those wondering about the "counseling" at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) December 28, 2012
"At the BornBrave bus you have have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends," she continued. "I feel like most kids don't look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom and I wanted to break the stigmas around "help" and make it fun."
The BornBrave bus will also provide food, games and music to entertain fans before the gig. Lady Gaga resumes her world tour on January 11 in Vancouver, Canada, where the bus will make its first appearance.
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has claimed that her forthcoming new album, 'ARTPOP', is "very risky". In an online conversation with her fans on her Little Monsters social networking site, the singer fielded questions about recording sessions on the LP and what people could expect.
Last week, (December 26), Gaga confirmed she is currently working with famed photographer Terry Richardson to make a documentary-style movie. The singer was last seen onstage with The Rolling Stones during the band's final date of their 50-year anniversary gigs at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, when she joined the legendary band for 'Gimmie Shelter'.
