Lady Gaga: Born This Way Foundation Launch!
“I’m not here today to give you an answer. And I’m not here to tell you I can solve these problems [of bullying]. This is about transformative change in culture over a period of time. One of the most important things I wanted to share with all of you today, it’s no secret I speak out against bullying. This is not an anti-bullying foundation; this is a youth-empowerment foundation,” the 25-year-old pop star told the crowd, which included Oprah Winfrey (via MTV News).
“This is about changing the climate of the school environment and not putting the power in the hands of the teachers or the government,” Gaga, who launched the foundation with her mom, Cynthia Germanotta, added. “It is about the bubble effect. I don’t believe they have the answers; I believe that you do.”
“Lady Gaga, with her music and her message and her own story, is breaking the form, and she is changing consciousness,” Oprah also shared. “She says that she wasn’t put on earth just to sing songs; her passion is to be that force for good. The Born This Way Foundation is in line with so many of my core beliefs.”
