Lady Gaga is in mourning this week after losing a loved one near and dear to her heart: Beloved childhood dog Alice, who passed away at the age of 17.
On Tuesday, October 29, the 27-year-old pop star confirmed the death on Twitter, explaining, "We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel."
"My daddy is so sad," she Tweeted, "we all are, lost a member of our family."
"I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home ... 17 years she held on, so many memories. Nothing beats family."
"I remember her laying my bed, she knew when I was sad, or when I was sick ... I should have been there. I just pray that Alice found her wonderland."
Clearly, the loss is taking a toll on Gaga - much more so than Kelly Osbourne telling her to eat s--t - as she stepped out in a somber, all-black ensemble.
We wish her the best in this difficult time, and if it's any consolation, it sounds like Alice led a very long and happy life in a loving household at least.
