Lady Gaga says she wants to mentor Billie Eilish

Can we expect to see Lady Gaga mentor Billie Eilish? Let’s hope so.

After the 18-year-old American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish became the youngest person and first woman to win the four main Grammy categories – Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year at the 2020 Grammy Awards in January, 34-year-old Lady Gaga sent her some flowers and a note offering to be her mentor.

Gaga told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she was never able to find a female mentor and that “For me, it’s healing because it hurt me that I didn’t get that. I’m going to be that for someone else.”

Gaga credits Elton John as being her main mentor, “he’s always challenged me to keep my head above water and it’s something that I always appreciate is that he knows when I’m down”.

The Chromatica singer says she wants younger artists like Eilish to know she is “rooting for them.”

“I’ve had a harder time with ­older women in terms of having a female ­mentor. Other than Celine Dion and Carole King, it’s proven ­difficult to have someone who would show me the way. So I really hope that young female artists – or young artists of any gender identity or sexual identity – will know that I am rooting for them,” Gaga said.

Most high-profile celebrities credit a mentor for sustaining their success. While Oprah Winfrey has mentored many women she says poet and author Maya Angelou was always there, guiding her.

Writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron was Lena Dunham’s mentor until her death in 2012, with Denham describing Ephron’s advice as “unparalleled”. And Jane Fonda says that Katharine Hepburn taught her about acting, and about life.

Eilish has not publicly responded to Gaga’s offer of mentorship, recently stepping back from personal announcements to lend her support – and platform – to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The young musician, who currently has over 64 million followers on Instagram, recently caused a stir by unfollowing all accounts on her page.

In a since-deleted message, Eilish told followers, “If I am following your abuser DM me and I will unfollow them. I support you.”

Gaga meanwhile is busy promoting her recently-released Chromatica album.
