Congrats are in order for Lady Gaga, who turns 28 today! Looking back on her successful years in the spotlight, we can’t help but also notice the incredible work she did off the stage — when she wasn’t getting vomited on!
One of Gaga’s main causes is to stomp out bullying. In 2010, while on The Monster Ball tour in Oslo, Norway, Gaga took the stage, expressing, “If you are being bullied, you’ll (one day) be looking at those people while you are a shining star on stage.”

While 2011 was a big music moment for the star (remember her alter ego Jo Calderone?), she also dedicated time to giving back. Lady Gaga, along with Usher, headlined a fundraiser for the William J. Clinton Foundation.
+ February 2012
In 2012, the Born This Way Foundation was born into the world! Gaga held the opening event (which included guests like OPRAH!) at Harvard. The Born This Way Foundation is definitely one of our favorites, as it helps young people on so many levels.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Gaga took it upon herself to donate $1 million to the relief fund! Such a generous act of kindness!
Gaga decided to add the Born Brave Bus Tour to coincide with her tour. Through this bus tour, kids could hang out, get important resources about bullying, and just bond and have a good time.
Educating her fans on the importance of health is important to Gaga. From HIV/AIDS awareness to Gaga’s #GetCovered support for health insurance, she’s all about dat healthy life!
We are so excited to see what Mother Monster will do in the future, and we are just happy to be living in the Age Of Gaga!
