I heard the news...knew of her bff's horrible cancer struggles...could NOT EVEN DISCUSS ON AIR without crying... :( Lady Gaga announced over the weekend one of her dearest friends', Sonja Durham, passed away from her long-time battle with cancer. Gaga's recent song "Grigio Girls," was written in her honor about their friendship and the battle of her illness.
When Gaga performed during her set at Coachella, she dedicated her performance of "Edge of Glory" to her friend.
Gaga wrote about Durham's battle with cancer, revealing her death in a series of posts. She wrote, "Watching one of my best friends in the world show unfathomable courage, strength and positivity while battling cancer has really changed my life. I vow to be a warrior for her and be a voice for cancer patients so the world can continue to improve the dialogue and the fight."
