Lady GaGa Raises $500,000 For Haiti – In One Day!

Pop phenomenon Lady GaGa has raised a staggering $500,000 (half a million) for the Haiti earthquake relief fund.

The 23 year old donated merchandise profits from the ticket sales of  her concert in New York on January 24th, as well from her website on the same day, to help victims of the disaster:

Speaking at the final date of her US ‘Monster Ball’ tour at Purdue University, the 23-year-old announced the total donation figure.

“On ‘GaGa For Haiti’ day, in just 24 hours, with very minimal marketing and planning, all the little monsters all over the world made over half a million dollars for Haiti relief,” she told the audience.”I know Bravado fell off their chair – that’s who sells all my merchandise – they couldn’t believe it! So let’s sing along for Haiti right now!” {Source}

Kudos to her for using her star-power for good.

    The “Love Game” and “Just Dance” Lady gaga was my all time fav..she was a lil’ out there..but not as much as she is now. I still love her style tho. I just want her to chill with my fam and eat some good soul food, so she can thicken up a lil bit..cuz she lookin’ a lil Mr. Smither-ish..lol.

    Thats my Gaga!

    @Erica I was noticing that too. She seemed like she had a lot more weight on her when she first stepped on the scene. She was healthier..
