This week was the Oscar show and, of course, the much talked about slap. So much has been said about that, we will leave that to others to parse. For us, it was Lady Gaga and Liza Minnelli during that show that truly made an impact — they brought me to tears. It was when Gaga said to the clearly struggling Liza on a hot mic: “I got you.” That was the moment to hold up as an example of what we can and should be doing as humans. Kindness, compassion, and elevating each other. I have never met Stefani, Lady Gaga, but I hope that at some point I will. A performer with global star power, she showed us at that moment what real power looked like. This is the sort of human being that I can hold up as a role model, someone who walks the talk, who made the moment about helping someone else out, and demonstrating to a massive audience that this is how it is done.
We will all at some point in our lives need a helping hand. None of us are immune to sickness, age, injury, depression — that is how life is. I aspire to be the one offering a helping hand when it is needed. As a member of a generation older than Gaga, I would like to say: We salute you, very well handled. None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes, but we are all examples to others, and we need to understand our actions have an influence.
We are all here very much looking forward to another tremendous SuperAge MasterClass. We pour everything we have into these, we love it, and the people in the cohort tell us it is a life-changing experience for them. We are so excited to meet all our new people, and for you to meet each other. As of this morning, there are a few spots left, but they will be gone soon, so sign up today.
Until next week,
