Lady Gaga urged the world to “take care of each other” as she collected the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
The pop star picked up the trophy for her A Star Is Born duet with Bradley Cooper, ‘Shallow’. Cooper was not present at the ceremony, as Gaga noted.
“I wish Bradley was here with me right now – he’s at the BAFTAs over in the UK,” she said. “Bradley, I loved singing this song with you.”

She continued to say she was “so proud” to have a part in a movie that “addresses mental health issues.” They’re so important,” she explained. “A lot of artists deal with that. We gotta take care of each other. So if you so somebody that’s hurting, don’t look away. If you’re hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery to dive deep and tell somebody.”
Gaga already picked up two other Grammys at the pre-telecast ceremony. She was named the winner in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for ‘Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)’ and Best Song Written For Visual Media for ‘Shallow’.
She could take home a further two awards for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year, both for ‘Shallow’.
