Lady Gaga took home two trophies among some of the most talented people in Hollywood at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday, January 13, but a heartbreaking loss took place after the event.
The A Star Is Born actress, 32, took to Instagram to share the news that one of her beloved pets was dying. “Goodbye, my angel,” Gaga captioned a stunning photo of herself riding a beautiful white horse alongside the broken-heart emoji.
“I am so honored and blessed to have won both Best Song and Best Actress alongside Glenn Close this evening,” the “Shallow” songstress added in a second post. “My heart is exploding with pride. But it saddens me to say that just after the show I learned that my dear angel of a horse, Arabella, is dying. I am rushing to her now to say goodbye.”
Gaga continued: “Her name means ‘yield to prayer.’ She is and was a beautiful horse. Our souls and spirits were one. When she was in pain, so was I. I will never forget the moments we shared. Long hikes together, galloping through the canyons. Feeding her cookies.”
The New York native concluded, “She will forever be a part of me. I am so very sad. But I wish for your pain to end, and the gates of heaven to open for you. I love you.”
Gaga — with a nod to her hit song “Joanne” — ended the post with the lyrics, “Girl, where do you think you’re goin?”
The Golden Globe winner later posted a photo of herself with the horse that needed no caption. The picture spoke for itself, showing Gaga sitting in front of a piano as she cradled the face of the horse.
Gage attended the Critics’ Choice Awards with her fiancé, Christian Carino, and her A Star Is Born costar Bradley Cooper.
