Lady Gaga for good causes
|Lady Gaga, the pop princess|
Lady Gaga, the famous singer and writer is doing something that is encouraging for the personalities in position. She has taken a nice and humanitarian job of raising fund for the earthquake and tsunami affected people in Japan.
Recently she also begins giving up royalties from the country version of Born This Way to an anti-bullying charity.It is almost a newer version of charity program.
Fund for Japan
Ms Gaga has not wasted time in asking her fans, little monsters as she terms them, to contribute to Japan Crisis. The pop singer is selling a newly created bracelet that says "Pray for Japan" in English and Japanese characters. Gaga's website is selling the bracelets for $5 each with the promise that "all proceeds go directly to Japan relief efforts." Additional donations may be added to the cost of the item as well. One thing that can be said for celebrities, they are always quick to launch appeals in the face of worldwide disasters, and unite like no other organisation when they do. In the aftermath of the Japanese tsunami and earthquake, it took no time at all for talk to begin about what can be done to raise funds for those affected by the tragedy but while most are still talking, Lady Gaga has wasted no time in actually getting on and doing something. Amid the hundreds of messages of condolence and prayers sent from celebrities, including Japanese stars Yoko Ono and George Takei, who have both urged people to help with the fundraising for their home country, it is good to see that in these circumstances Gaga is someone who would rather get on and do it than sit for weeks talking about it.
Anti-bullying charity for youngsters.
The singer is giving up royalties from the country version of Born This Way to an anti-bullying charity. She’s on the charity trail again, this time with her country influenced version of hit single Born This Way. The singer is donating her takings from the song to an anti-bullying charity. The song itself is an advert for equal rights for gays and lesbians, and generally for anyone who dares to be different in the face of those shallow enough to discriminate them, which makes it an appropriate choice. The GLSEN charity, which stands for Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, helps youngsters with bullying at school, and if it hadn’t existed already it is just the type of charity the singer would have set up herself. Posting on her Twitter account the singer said, “Born This Way The Country Road Version is on iTunes and all proceeds go to the anti-bullying charity. It’s been a while since there has been anyone which quite this level of pulling power that is willing to give up their royalties for good causes, and for that I salute her. This kind of donation can do a lot to lots of unaddressed problems suffering from financial crisis to be successful.

After performing in the rock music scene of New York City's Lower East Side in 2003 and later enrolling at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, she soon signed with Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope Records. During her early time at Interscope, she worked as a songwriter for fellow label artists and captured the attention of Akon, who recognized her vocal abilities, and signed her to his own label, Kon Live Distribution.

Achieving similar worldwide success, The Fame Monster (2009), its follow-up, produced a further two global chart-topping singles "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" and allowed her to embark on a second global headlining concert tour, The Monster Ball Tour, just months after having finished her first, The Fame Ball Tour. Her second studio album, Born This Way, is scheduled for release on May 23, 2011 after the arrival of its eponymous lead single "Born This Way" which achieved the number-one spot in countries worldwide and was the fastest-selling single in iTunes history, selling one million copies in five days.
