Lady Gaga Addresses Kindness + Mental Health In New Film: Look + Listen

In a new short film, The Power of Kindness, Lady Gaga discusses kindness, mental health and the journey to self-acceptance with a group of young people.

Spearheaded by Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, the half-hour project arrived on November 12, one day before World Kindness Day.

The 30-minute video features Gaga and mental health expert Dr. Alfiee Breland-Noble whi talk with 11 young people about their personal mental health journeys, different aspects of kindness, and how to overcome the stigma that remains attached to such discussions. The Power of Kindness is divided into four chapters: “Kindness to Self,” “Kindness to Others,” “Kindness to Community” and “Building a Kinder Future.” 

In a statement about the project, Lady Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) stated: “Sharing your story and practicing kindness is powerful.” “I’ve been all over the world and met millions of young people, and my life is forever changed by their bravery and vulnerability. It’s through those stories of love, joy, grief, empathy, and radical acceptance, that young people continue to show what it means to channel kindness — to themselves and others.”

Concurrent with The Power of Kindness, Gaga is gearing up for the release of her next movie, House of Gucci in which she plays Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci. Directed by Ridley Scott, the film also stars Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, Jack Huston and Jared Leto – set to hit theaters 12.24.21
