Ashley Tisdale Opens Up About 'Symptoms' Album

Ashley Tisdale revealed to Access Live’s Natalie Morales and Kit Hoover that the outpouring of love, support and understanding after she released her song "Voices In My Head" has been overwhelming.

The song, which talks about her battle with anxiety and depression, has been particularly meaningful to many fans and she said she is just overcome with emotion knowing that so many fans loved the message.

Ashley also discussed how depression and anxiety influenced her upcoming album, Symptoms. When asked why she decided to discuss her mental health struggles on her first album in nine years, Tisdale said, "I wanted to make someone at home feel less alone in their journey. It’s hard to be vulnerable. It’s scary, but I think that it’s important to share what I’ve been through, and say that I’m human and I go through those things too."

She said she was inspired to get back into studio after reading a self-help book that talked about fear of failure and noticing the negative stigma around people suffering from depression. "Whenever I’m with my friends, it’s really easy to be like, ‘Who suffers from anxiety?’ and everyone will raise their hand," she said. "But if you say ‘Who suffers from depression?’ no one will raise their hand because there’s a stigma around the word and I think we have to let go of that."

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation Launches New Campaign In Honor Of World Kindness Day

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation is launching a new kindness campaign to coincide with World Kindness Day today.

In partnership with Zappos and SoulCycle, the foundation has announced the #MultiplyYourGood Challenge, which invites individuals to volunteer or donate to a nonprofit in their community this holiday season. For every act of kindness performed by December 21st, the Born This Way Foundation will "multiply" it by performing a good deed for one of their nonprofit partners.

Participants can share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #MultiplyYourGood and submit their good deeds on the Born This Way website.

For every act of good submitted, you’ll be entered to win a trip to Las Vegas to see Lady Gaga’s new residency, as well as take part in a service event alongside the Born This Way Foundation team.

Born This Way Foundation cofounder (and Gaga’s mother) Cynthia Germanotta said participants might consider directing their efforts toward helping the victims of the wildfires that have roiled California.

"We’re heartbroken by the devastation in California and we hope our community uses #MultiplyYourGood as an opportunity to help support those who have been impacted," Germanotta says. "We hope that those taking part in California – and beyond – consider picking one of the amazing organizations working tirelessly to respond to the wildfires and to help communities recover in the weeks and months ahead … We’re also teaming up with Starbucks to celebrate World Kindness Day and to help kickoff the #MultiplyYourGood Challenge with in store activations. Two of those are in California, and we’ll be using those activations to help support the wildfire recovery efforts as well, collecting thank you cards for first responders in Los Angeles and donations for the Red Cross in Walnut Creek."

Southern California’s Woolsey fire recently forced Gaga to evacuate her Malibu home, but in the days since she has visited a Red Cross shelter and called out President Trump to "set an example of kindness for this country."

The Born This Way Foundation, founded in 2012, aims to improve youth wellness and empower young people to create a kinder world.
