During the singer's emotional acceptance speech, she shared a strong message about mental health and the impact of her popular film, "A Star Is Born."

"I'm so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues," she said. "They're so important. A lot of artists deal with that, and we've got to take care of each other."

"If you see somebody that's hurting, don't look away," she continued. "And if you're hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and go tell somebody and take them up in your head with you."

She also sent a special shout out to her co-star Bradley Cooper, who she performed the hit single with, and explained that he was not able to make the Grammys because he is at the British Academy Film Awards.

"I know he wants to be here," she said. "Bradley, I loved singing this song with you."

"I can’t believe we just won Best Original Music BAFTA‘s," she captioned a Facebook post. "I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammy’s to show them our love as well."
