Lady Gaga may be taking a break from music, but that doesn’t mean she’s not still working for causes she cares about.

   How to rebuild your child’s self-esteem after bullying
The singer recently shared an anti-bullying video on her Instagram where she talks about her colleague’s daughter, Venice, who has been feeling bullied and like an outcast at school.

Her message in the video is clear and direct, encouraging the kids at Venice’s school to be kind to each other and look for bravery within their community.

“Sometimes it’s hard to stand up against the popular kids and hang out with somebody that’s being bullied, but be the bigger person,” said Gaga. “Be kinder; be braver. Go and sit with Venice and have lunch. Be a rebel.”

Some commenters have criticized Gaga for putting a spotlight on their school, which has an anti-bullying policy, but others pointed out that the policy being in place doesn’t matter if the child is still feeling hurt by the actions of her classmates.

We think her message is spot on, especially during a time when the world can sometimes seem so bleak.

Go on Gaga, keep preaching your message of love.
