Lady Gaga – Remember Who You Are

Watch Lady Gaga’s inspiring speech about the importance of staying true to yourself.


“So don’t be unconscious all day, on your fucking phone. Don’t we live now in a bit of a very shallow world? Pop culture is extremely shallow and we’re just asking the world to get deep.

I don’t like wasting my time spending days just shaking people’s hands and smiling and taking selfies. It feels shallow to my existence. I have a lot more to offer than my image. I don’t like being used to make people money. I feel sad when I am overworked and that I just became a money-making machine and that my passion and my creativity take a back seat to what makes me unhappy.

So what did I do? I started to say no. I’m not doing that. I don’t want to do that. I’m not taking that picture. I’m not going to that event. I’m not standing by that because that’s not what I stand for. And slowly but surely I remembered who I am. And then you go home and you look in the mirror and you’re like, yes! I can go to bed with you every night.”
