Putting "Born This Way" Into Action
Lady Gaga is getting her little monsters together for her upcoming tour, and she'll be offering more than just her music.
Lady Gaga has been doing a lot this year to help fight bullying across the country — and across the world. She recently started the Born This Way foundation and even teamed up with Office Depot earlier this year to help raise money for kids in need.
"We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world," said the organization at the time of the launch. "Together, we will move towards acceptance and bravery. Our movement is only as strong as supporters like you, so BE Involved and share your support."
Gaga is going one step further and has now said she will be offering "counseling" on her upcoming tour. In a series of tweets on Dec. 28, she explained her new effort.
"For those wondering about the'‘counseling' at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite," she tweeted. "At the #BornBraveBus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends."
Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball tour is kicking off Jan. 11, 2013, in Vancouver, British Columbia, and will run for more than two months. The singer hopes to help a lot of people along the way.
"#BornBraveBus there will also be food and games, @djws and@ladystarlightny will DJ with host @BREEDLOVENYC to keep the experience fun," she continued. "#BornBraveBus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all#BraverWorld."
Lady Gaga added that she is doing this to help her fans who may feel bullied and don't seek help.
"I feel like most kids don't look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around 'help' and make it fun," she tweeted.
Gaga's tour will wrap up March 20 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
