Lady Gaga decided to help empower teenagers by launching a new foundation called “Born This Way”, according to Reuters. The event took place on Thursday at the Harvard University, one of the most prestigious educational institutions in America. The foundation was inspired by Gaga’s desire to stop cruelty among youth and make a world a better place.
The “Marry the Night” singer arrived at the Harvard University with her mom, Cynthia Germanotta. She was also accompanied by many of her friends including Oprah Winfrey. The famous TV show host told the press that she wants to join forces with Lady Gaga because she believes in the values of the foundation.
According to the declarations of the singer, the foundation is meant to help teenagers with revolutionary potential use their skills to make the world a better place. For that, there should be supportive systems in the communities where young people live. Thus, meanness and cruelty directed towards talented kids will be diminished.
Oprah Winfrey released an interview, too. She told reporters that she supports Gaga’s foundation because it is based on kindness, compassion and care for others. The foundation will be administered by Cynthia Germanotta, Lady Gaga’s mom.
The new society will include specific outreach to lesbian and gay youth. These communities have adopted the “Born This Way” single as their unofficial anthem. The song has been used ever since to support gay empowerment and pride. In addition, the single helped Lady Gaga start a dialog with her fans, thus setting the grounds for a Twitter community of 20 million followers.
The foundation was even provided with a special bus, called “Born Brave Bus” which will be used to transport Gaga’s fans from one location to another. The 25-year-old performer suggested that she might use the bus as a roving tailgate party because she wants to hang out with her fans after each concert.
In the end, Gaga told people who were present at the launching event that she wished there was a law that could be passed to stop bullying and hate, or to mandate acceptance among people. Unfortunately, there isn’t one, so the singer had to create her own foundation to set things straight in the world.
