For those wondering about the ‘counseling’ at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite. 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.
—Lady Gaga, on offering “counseling” sessions pre-concert, and you know, I could make the obvious joke that anyone who goes to a Lady Gaga concert should probably undergo some counseling anyway, but hey, when have we actually gone for the obvious jab around here at Evil Beet?
Seriously, this is probably a pretty good idea. I think there’s a lot of people out there who are walking around that definitely need some therapy, and aren’t getting it either because it’s too expensive and they don’t have insurance, or because they’re afraid of the aforementioned stigma attached to seeking professional help for mental or emotional issues, and it’s something that needs addressing quick-like.
+1 on Lady Gaga today, huh?
