Friday Faces: Lady Gaga
Whatever Lady Gaga does, she spurs a sensation. And that's why it's so exciting that the 25-year old pop singer has emerged as a major anti-bullying and LGBTQ advocate.
Her latest headline-grabber is the launch of the Born This Way Foundation, whose name sums up its goal. The organization rests on the idea that today's youth should feel safe to be themselves and express themselves however they please. In fact, Lady Gaga isn't even labeling it an 'anti-bullying' organization, insisting it's more about youth empowerment.
When she spoke at the foundation's launch event at Harvard University, she even joked that if she can make a song like 'Just Dance' known all over the world, she could be able to make a hit, like 'Just Be Nice!'
If Twitter followers are any indication of celebrity -- and social media advocacy -- 20 million people and counting may be jumping on this cause. 'The Born This Way Foundation' is definitely one of Lady Gaga's moves we can all agree on.
