We have seen Lady Gaga in different ways, some negative yet some are positive. She has become one of the most controversial artists in the past few years because of her totally eccentric fashion sense and weird genre of songs. But recently, looks like we have gathered positive news about her after she recently launched a youth foundation in Harvard University.
On Wednesday, the pop star descended on Harvard University along with some powerful and highly influential friends as they launched her newest foundation that aims to empower people, especially the youth. Great and huge personalities such as Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra (the spiritual leader), and the Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius joined her in her newest advocacy. Altogether, they kicked off the Born This Way Foundation that Gaga’s mother and inspiration will help steer.
The launch was attended by more than a thousand students and Gaga was really hands on when it comes to her advocacy as she spoke in front of these young people. During her speech, she tried to convince the young audience from the university to “challenge meanness and cruelty.”
“I believe that if you have revolutionary potential, you must make the world a better place and use it,” she said this with great conviction. She simply reminded them that there is no law which indicates or forces you to be kind to one another and supported this statement by saying: “I wish there was because, you know, I’d be chained naked to a fence somewhere trying to pass it.”
A very reliable source that Lady Gaga personally contributed about $1.2 million for the said foundation. The foundation was named after her album and hit song “Born This Way”, which actually promotes empowerment and has actually become an anthem for gay pride.
