What do Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper have in common? In addition to making their mark in the music industry, they're teaming up. The duo appeared on Good Morning America February 10 to promote MAC's VIVA GLAM campaign which educates women on HIV prevention.

Lady Gaga and Cyndi LauperLady Gaga indicated that HIV awareness isn't just limited to America. It's "a cause that affects women all over the world."

Although Lady Gaga probably didn't anticipate when she burst on the scene that she would be involved in social awareness in addition to music, it's part of the responsibility that comes with being a big star these days. As a result, she's super excited to educate her fans about well being and staying safe.

The partnership itself is unique in that Gaga gets to share the social responsibility with her mentor, Cyndi Lauper. Lady Gaga said that she and Cyndi want to do good jobs as women to represent a sexual community. They want all women to relate to one another about their health which is not new to Lauper who's been an AIDS activist from way back when. She wants women to "always be prepared."

The dynamic duo made their debut as spokespersons earlier this month in a print ad which has already raised $150 million to combat HIV. Better yet, every dollar spent on a VIVA GLAM lipstick and lip gloss supports women, men, and children living with HIV and AIDS.
