Lady Gaga’s puppy Alice died of cancer in October 2013. She wrote on Twitter, “We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel. My daddy is so sad, we all are, we lost a member of our family.”
“I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home,” she wrote. “17 years she held on, so many memories. Nothing beats family.”
Whilst she can be a little Marmite for some tastes, I have always found her completely innovative and admire her outlandish dress sense. You cannot deny that her mourning outfit she wore the day after Alice’s passing was definitely unique.
It is important to give yourself time to grieve. When you lose a member of the family it is so vital that you take time to allow the grieving process to take place. Give yourself permission to feel sad and to get support from your family and those friends and colleagues that understand your loss.
