Lady Gaga Says Fame and Fortune Won’t Make You Happy
Lady Gaga told fans that fame and money will not make them happy as she performed an intimate concert in London.
“Money has been put on a pedestal, beauty has been put on a pedestal, celebrity has been put on a pedestal,” she told a crowd at the Westfield mall, according to The Guardian.
“I have travelled the world and seen the happiest people in the poorest parts of the world,” Gaga, 30, continued. “Their values are intact. In the richest homes I meet the saddest and most depressed people. With this album, I wanted to remind the whole world and my fans that the most important things are love and kindness.”
“Kindness is what will create harmony, not celebrity and not fame,” she added.
Gaga, who was spotted out and about London on Thursday (Dec. 1, 2016) with her signature pink Joanne cowboy hat, also revealed earlier that night that she will do everything she can to stand up for progress on LGBT rights under the Trump administration.
“We need to stay in a kind place and we need to bond during this time, and be as harmonious as possible, and intelligent in the way we approach this,” she told BBC News.
