In an effort to enrich the lives of her fans, Lady Gaga will reportedly begin offering therapy sessions at her upcoming concerts.
The singer is reportedly offering professional counseling to her fans at shows for free. According to BlackBook, Lady Gaga announced on her official Facebook page that therapy would be provided at her BornBrave Bus during her tour.
The pop star said the pre-show counseling sessions would be a “tailgating experience for monsters to unite.” In addition to mental health care, the event will also feature music and food.
Here’s what Lady Gaga said on her Facebook page:
“At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends. There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun.
BornBrave Bus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all. I feel like most kids don’t look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around “help” and make it fun.”
Ace Showbiz reports that Lady Gaga has also teamed up with the folks at Virgin Mobile to spread the word about youth homelessness during her shows. The singer hopes to get people interested in the Born This Way Foundation, a youth organization started by Gaga herself.
The Born Brave Ball will continue on January 11. Over the next three months, Lady Gaga will play around 30 North American shows before wrapping things up in Tulsa, Oklahoma on March 20.
Once she’s done touring, the singer will likely focus all of her energy on her next album. Lady Gaga recently revealed during an interview with NME that ARTPOP would be a bit more daring than her previous effort.
“My favorite things about ‘Born This Way’ album is that it was risky and its own thing. ‘ARTPOP’ is very risky. If you’re not taking a risk you’re not breaking any boundaries,” she explained.
