Approximately eight years years after teaming up on “Telephone” and “Video Phone,” Lady Gaga and Beyoncé show that their connection is still strong.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday (Sept. 26), Gaga shared a photo of flowers and a note that she received from her friend and collaborator.
Below a bouquet of red roses, Queen Bey’s card reads: “Thinking about you and sending you so much love. Praying for your quick recovery.”
Gaga returned the love with her caption, acknowledging ‘Yoncé’s influence in the process. “Thank you so much honey B. Miss you. this was so kind,” she wrote. “If I hadn’t seen your videos on TV at grandmas house after I got dropped from def jam records, I would have given up. You inspire us all. The dream you embody kept me going.”
But that’s not all. Prior to sharing the photo of the flowers, Gaga also posted an image of herself in an Ivy Park hoodie. “Not having a good pain day,” she wrote. “Thank you honey B for sending me this comfy sweatshirt. Keeps me warm outside in a hammock so I can be w the trees, and the sky, and the sun and take deep breaths. Feel so lucky to have so much love.”
Beyoncé’s care package arrives shortly after Gaga’s Five Foot Two documentary hit Netflix, in which the pop superstar candidly reveals her ongoing battle with chronic pain, which started after she broke her hip in 2013.
The Chris Moukarbel-directed film has received critical acclaim for an honest and vulnerable portrayal of Gaga’s medical issues and emotional suffering. “I wanted to fully invest in being the subject of this documentary as opposed to the director,” she told the Los Angeles Times of the movie. “I didn’t want it to be a commercial for me and why you should love me and think I’m perfect.”
