Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta -that must mean she is the Grandmother Monster- have launched the Born This Way Foundation, which aims to inspire the youth, to foster self-esteem and to stamp out bullying! Go Gaga!
Gaga released a statement about the foundation, which read as follows: "My mother and I have initiated a passion project. We call it the Born This Way Foundation. Together we hope to establish a standard of bravery and kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment."
Self-confidence building and eradication of bullying will be part of the BTW Foundations focused, concentrated efforts. Since bullying has grown to epidemic-style proportions, which teased and tortured teens often turning to suicide, there is no time like the present to launch such an endeavor!
