Lady Gaga is one of the most successful pop stars of recent times. Therefore, who would not want to have her as a mentor? Luckily, for Billie Eilish, she has been given the offer from the ‘Born This Way’ singer.
Furthermore, Gaga reached out to Eilish by sending her a load of flowers with a special note, pretty much straight after the ‘Bad Guy’ singer won five grammies back in January.
Speaking, about the once in a lifetime offer, Gaga said: “Billie swept a whole bunch of awards, so I said, ‘Let’s send some flowers’. I wrote her a note. For me, it’s healing because it hurt me that I didn’t get that. I’m going to be that for someone else.”
“I’ve had a harder time with older women in terms of having a female mentor. Other than Celine Dion and Carole King, it’s proven difficult to have someone who would show me the way. So I hope that young female artists – or young artists of any gender identity or sexual identity – will know that I am rooting for them.”
Lady Gaga also spoke about having a mentor in her life. Guess who her mentor is? Elton John.
She said “He’s been my mentor for a long time. I mean, he’s always challenged me to keep my head above water, and it’s something that I always appreciate is that he knows when I’m down. He just does. And he knows because I hide because I never want anyone to see me when I’m like that.”
