Lady Gaga Pays Tribute to Late Friend

 

Lady Gaga lost her best friend, Sonja Durham, earlier this year after a battle with breast cancer. Saturday, would have been Durham’s 42nd birthday and the singer honored her late friend with several heartfelt posts on social media.

“Happy Birthday to my late best friend @sonjad7777 Sonja Durham Dubois. #breastcancerawareness month is so important. Share your stories of survival and treatment plans with each other. Everyone’s cancer is different. But the More we talk and share the more we learn. I have no words for you girl, just tears and dreams. & I know you’re running Haus of Gaga from Heaven,” Gaga captioned an illustration of her best friend.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Gaga is doing her part. Gaga said she struggled to get off the couch on Saturday – but she forced herself to get dressed and post about it, knowing the importance of raising awareness for the disease.

Gaga also took to Twitter to share that her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, had been featured by Refinery29 for her work with the family’s Born This Way Foundation. “This is my mom, such a powerhouse in the mental health stratosphere & true a warrior for me #BeKind @BTWFoundation,” she tweeted along with the story link.

Gaga will hold an Instagram Live today for World Mental Health Day. “Please joins me at 4pm PST to meditate/sit quietly/pray/or do any practice of your choosing,” she wrote. “My intention is to remind us that the world is one body, and that we are all connected. And the calmer each of us are individually, the calmer the world will be.”
