Lady Gaga: Born This Way Foundation Launch!

Lady Gaga arrives at Harvard University to launch her Born This Way Foundation on Wednesday (February 29) in Cambridge, Mass.

“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.”

    7 Signs of Lying

    Disguised smiling
    Lack of head movement
    Increased rate of self-adapters (eg., movements such playing with an object in hands, scratching one’s head etc.)
    Increased/Heightened pitch of voice
    Reduced rate of speech
    Pause fillers (“uh”, “hm”, “er”)
    Less corresponding, matching nonverbal behavior from the other communication methods (ex. the movement of hands doesn’t match the substance of the lie that is being told orally)

    HABITUAL LIAR

    Habitual pathological lying is, as the name suggest, habitual. Habitual liar lies so frequently, that it becomes a habit, as a result, he/she puts very little effort in giving a thought about what the output is going to be, nor does he/she care much to process whether it’s a lie or not, it’s simply a reflex & very often can be completely unnecessary or even opposite to his/her own needs. If he/she stops & thinks about it, he/she knows clearly it’s a lie.

    Habitual liars lie for a variety of reasons, which include, but are not limited to:

    *Take advantage of the situation or misguide a rival*
    Avoid confrontation or punishment
    Cover up lack of knowledge
    *Cover up embarrassment*
    *To entertain oneself or others*
    *Reinforce self-esteem, because of failing own expectation*
    *Receive unearned praise or avoid disappointment or disproval*
    For no reason whatsoever
    Habitual liars gives very few if any psychical or vocal signs of lying, due to the effortless nature of lying. That said, since he/she gives a very little thought to his/her lies, they are usually inconsistent & obvious.

    Fear is a major contributor in developing habitual lying in a child & further advancement into adulthood, more so in conditions when the child finds truth telling results in more frequent or more severe punishment. Lack of appreciating and likelihood of unwanted consequences of telling the truth may result in frequent opting out for lying, which often involves less punishment & therefore becomes more desirable.

    Pathological Liar – Causes
    Causes of development of pathological lying can be, but are not limited to, one or more of the factors mentioned below:
    *Personality disorders such as Sociopathic, Narcissistic, Borderline, Histrionic and more*
    *Substance abuse or substance abuse in family*
    Impulse control disorders; such as kleptomania, pathological gambling, compulsive shopping
    *Low self-esteem is a commonly found feature in pathological liars. The lie maybe an attempt to feel good about themselves, generally for a short period of time, similar to the effect of drugs & alcohol. The same lie or deceit repeated over and over may create a myth of personal well-being or success or displacement of faults of own failures on others, thus creating an imaginary fantasy protection bubble, which may reinforce self-esteem. Pathological liars repeatedly use deceit as an ego defense mechanism, which is primarily caused by the lack of ability to cope with everyday problems in more mature ways (Selling 1942)*

    GAGA The GREAT !! Oprah loves Gaga. I want to see the show Gaga is going to have on Oprah’s network Own. Gaga is filming her harvard visit for a Oprah Special. Little Monsters I have some good news. Gaga may be in Will Smiths, Men in Black and Quentin Tarrantino wants Gaga in Kill Bill part three. They are saying Quentin is crazy about Gaga and wants her really bad to be in a major part for Kill Bill.

  • Lady Reductive

    This won’t make me like Lady Caca’s zombie, robotic, delusional interviews, the sound of her annoying speaking and singing voice, her boring piano, her stupid lyrics, her embarrassing music.

    Lady Caca is still a reductive imbecile.

    Some people are too easily impressed.
