Lady Gaga is all about uplifting her fellow female artists, and she won't tolerate the spread of negativity. On Feb. 12, she jumped to the defence of her new friend Cardi B, after critics argued the rapper didn't deserve her Grammy win.

Cardi made history on Sunday night as the first solo female artist to win best rap album. She dedicated her win to the late Mac Miller, whose fifth and final album was nominated alongside her own. However, she received an onslaught of angry responses to her win, and eventually deleted her Instagram account.

Gaga's message is a reminder of the challenges female artists face, even at the most joyous moments of their careers. Her call for respect, positivity, and solidarity is a message we can stand behind.
