A Star is Born Review + Mental Health Issues & Battling Depression

I got the privilege to attend an advanced screening of A Star is Born at AMC Northpark in Dallas! The movie stars Bradley Cooper and Lady GaGa and comes out in theaters on out October 5th - I definitely recommend it. It's emotional, funny, and even has some unexpected twists.

After the screening, Bradley Cooper (who also directed the film) spoke to us and answered questions from the audience and it was surreal! I've luckily gotten to work with a lot of celebrities and musicians and he is by far the most famous person I've been around. I blacked out for half of the questions he answered but what I did realize a topic he hit on was the decline of healthy mental health in our society right now. We've lost so many musicians and celebrities within the last year, and especially within the last few months - Avicii, Kate Spade, and Mac Miller to name a few tragedies. And Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers recently posted on Instagram about how he's been battling depression throughout most of his breakout years as a musician, which is probably a surprise to most of us who are long time fans.
