Sometimes the greatest inspiration comes from the most unlikely places and I have to say much power to our musicians who have come forward this year to openly talk and express themselves about their recovery from mental illness. Earlier last week Lady Gaga broke the news about her struggle with PTSD while visiting the Ali Forney Center, and as we always see, with much stigma and ignorance, not everyone fully embraced her. None other than Piers Morgan tried to shame her on social media for what he called, and I quote his exact words, a “vain-glorious nonsense”. I was a bit surprised that someone, who I guess should have been as informed as Piers Morgan, would take such a stance, especially on this matter. I was happy nonetheless that Lady Gaga has agreed to do an interview with him, so thats something to look forward to. I was also happy that Gaga expressed herself in the right way when Mr. Morgan came out at her. She is a true inspiration and a very strong and brave lady.
And regardless of how we feel or don’t feel about Kanye, we have to show him some sympathy and respect for his journey. And names like Cudi, Zayne, Selena all taught us something this year, and much love to Jill Krajewski for this article: “The Year Musicians Left the Stage for the Timeline and Opened Up About Mental Health.” It basically sums up all the breakthroughs in music this year: https://noisey.vice.com/en_ca/article/the-year-musicians-left-the-stage-for-the-timeline-and-opened-up-about-mental-health.
