Kanye West and Lady Gaga have history, and by history we mean they weren't exactly best friends after their much-anticipated tour, Fame Kills, was suddenly canceled in 2009. But Gaga has clearly left the past behind her because she recently came to West's defense.
Gaga showed her support for West with a series of tweets on Wednesday Nov. 23, when she took to Twitter to slam those who have been mocking him over his recent hospitalization (he checked into the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Monday, Nov. 21) for a health scare believed to have been caused by "exhaustion and sleep deprivation."
Gaga told fans that this wasn't a time to be making jokes about mental illness because even though she does not agree with everything that West does, she does realize that it's times like these that he needs support, not belittling.
It's not funny to joke about anyone's possible or not possible mental illness, this is a sensitive time for many. Let's be kind & loving.— xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) November 23, 2016
While I don't agree with everything he does I hope the public shows compassion and for @kanyewest and each other. One love. One Race.— xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) November 23, 2016
Gaga concluded with a powerful message directed at West in which she told him that she fully supports him and sees "bravery and courage" within him.
. @kanyewest i support & love u brother, I see in you bravery & courage to stop this tour & take care of YOU. You are a GREAT artist— xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) November 23, 2016
We're always glad to see artists uplifting and supporting each other, especially when it's over something as serious as this, and Gaga is reminding everyone of the way that we should all be acting in this situation — offering our support.
