On Sunday, January 13, Lady Gaga snagged major award for Best Song and Best Actress at the Golden Globes, but the joy of her win didn't last very long. As the ceremony was ending, Gaga received news that her beloved horse, Arabella, was dying, and she had to rush home to say goodbye.


On Twitter, Gaga wrote a touching tribute to her horse for all the world to see:


In the post, she wrote:

"I am so honored and blessed to have won both Best Song and Best Actress alongside Glenn Close this evening. 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. 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. 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. Girl, where do you think you're goin?"

Gaga's fans were there to comfort her in this sad time:



Many wrote their own heartfelt messages about loss and the power of a true friendship.


Her fans are hoping Gaga and Arabella will be reunited in whatever life comes next...



There's nothing quite so painful as losing a friend.

Gaga kept countless photos of herself riding Arabella. She will be missed!



Hardcore Gaga fans will also miss Arabella, who was a fixture in the singer's life.


This is a day Gaga will surely remember.



RIP, Arabella.

Secrets, lies, and betrayal. That is often the foundation of a family. We can go through life thinking our families are perfect and everyone loves one another, that's the training that keeps us from searching for the skeletons in the closets.

But our secrets will always find a way to break free. We may not even be alive to see the outcome, which is anti-climactic, but they will be out of the dark eventually. And once we learn what some loved ones are hiding, life as we know it can be obliterated.

Some secrets may best be buried. So be really sure you want to know everything.

Redditor u/mykirto wanted to hear about all the family drama they've been uncovered, by asking:

What is the most f**ked up thing you found about your family?

There are some things that society just seems to expect adult humans to be able to do, but it looks like not everyone got the memo.

Whether due to never being taught, or a simple inability to pick up the skill no matter how much you practice, there are some things that some folks just can't do.

I was a teenager before I was finally able to properly ride a bicycle, and even now I'm not a stranger to falling off. Let me tell you: flying over the handle bars of a bike hurt a heck of a lot more at 25 than it did at 15.
