Lady GaGa To Be Honored For Contributions To ‘World Peace’

Published: Sunday 7th Oct 2012 by David

For Lady GaGa, altruism has become just as central to her cause as the music she’s come to be respected and admired for.

So now, in celebration of her tireless efforts to spread peace and acceptance through this material, she is to be honored with the ‘LennonOn0Grant For Peace‘ on October 9th, Iceland.

Exciting details below…

One of five activists to receive the award- which include Russia’s ‘P*ssy Riot’- Gaga is to be honored the work she has done via the ‘Born This Way Foundation’, the organization set up by the star to aid and provide a safe home for troubled teens, earlier this year.

On her work, Yoko Ono of ‘LennonOno‘ explained:

“Lady Gaga is one of the biggest living artists of our time. She is not only an artist, she is also an activist, using her art to bring better communication to the world.

She is being acknowledged for her activism, and how her album Born This Way has widely changed the mental map of the world. And how it has made us deal with the future world, which happens to be here already”

It has been reported GaGa will donate the grant to the ‘Elton John AIDS Foundation’, established by the ‘Rocket Man‘ in 1992.

        Lady Gaga is a garbage..just like her fashion and art.

  2. JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2012

    Wait for the hate towards Gaga on this post for no reason…
    She was in Barcelona last night and wore the Barça´s shirt at the concert. Tonight it´s the Barça-Madrid match. Go Barcelona and Messi!!! 🙂

    • Lady Gaga’s Twitter Followers Are Spams October 7, 2012

      28,847,607—the number of Lady Gaga Twitter followers at the time of this article’s writing—is a pretty big number, one that Gaga has worked tirelessly for with her continual outreach to even her most disenfranchised Little Monsters, shouting out her fanbase at every possible opportunity and always letting them know that they come first. Answering fan tweets, retweeting them constantly—Gaga is among the most engaged and engaging pop stars over the Bluebird, earning her gargantuan following with sheer hustle.
      Yet even with all her efforts, it looks like you still don’t get to 28,847,607 without a little bit of help. Social media company Status People reports that a staggering 71% of Gaga’s followers—roughly 20 million of them—are accounts that are either like inactive or belong to spam bots that don’t actually represent any human fan behind them. The research was done through a study of the singer’s 100,000 latest followers, of which only 29% were found to be “good” followers.
      Of course, even if 20 million of those followers are un-good—and we doubt the number’s that high, since it seems pretty likely to us that more of Gaga’s new followers are spam these days, now that she’s been around for a while, then when she first arrived on the scene and generated huge amounts of legitimate human-fan interest—that still leaves 8 million good fans, which is, uh, more than we have here at Popdust.

      Hold your head up, Monsters!!!! 🙁

      • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2012

        And I should care about that because?…. Gaga and Adele are the biggest things happened in music in the last 5-7 years. Sorry it wasn´t Rihanna if that´s what is making you sad
        I´m not even a monster. I´m a fan of true greats. But I can see this girl is talented, and most of her peers on the charts are talentless models
        End of

      • You Wanna? October 7, 2012

        Poor Lady Gaga..her album Born This Way is supposedly to be the album of the century yet turned out to be a collection of songs from the 80s Tampax-advert promo.

        ….sad isn’t it? LOL

      ¡Hala Madrid!……

      • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2012

        I know you don´t know about football in itself so it doesn´t matter 🙂
        Barça plays the most amazing football ever seen, either if they win or not. Madrid just plays defensive and depends on money to find all kinds of players around the globe except for Madrid city lol. Poor madridistas must feel insecure theit whole life cos of so much fuckery from their own team

      • Suicide Blonde October 7, 2012

        JOHNVIDAL.
        I know more about Football than you think, always a fan of Manchester United, AC Milan and Real Madrid, it was a good match, Cristiano shines over Messy no only as a football player but he’s a cutie, Barca is losing what they had in these recent years, however The Real Madrid is now so much better than 3 years ago, you can’t deny that, i don’t know why so much hate for people of your own country, i have a spanish friend here in New York and he says that he don’t understand why so much hate for the Madridistas and he says to me this night, i’m glad none of them won because this wan’t a match between Barca-Madrid, this was Cataluña vs España.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2012

        Sorry you don´t know about football if you think Cristiano is better than Messi. Like really wow
        Messi: people argue about if he is the best player of all times or not (most people starting to think he really is, he´s being #1 for too long now)
        Cristiano: he´s not even the best player during his time in active
        That just says it all

        Your friend is probably from Madrid city so… haha
        Did he tell you most mid class and humble people in Madrid are Atletico de Madrid supporters and nor Real Madrid? They even prefer Barça to win.
        I have nothing to do with Madrid or Barcelona and I´m Barça supporter. I just have eyes lol

        And about the SpainvsCataluña… Madrid is not Spain. Madrid doesn´t represent the rest of the country (and I´m not talking about Cataluña only). I don´t want Cataluña to be independent… cos I love Cataluña, better than Madrid anyday. But if they decide that (they won´t beleive me) I have not a problem with it. People in Madrid are often too narrowminded

      • Suicide Blonde October 7, 2012

        My friend is a fan of the Atletico haha, he doesn’t like Barca or Madrid and about Messi, i think he’s a good player but not the best of all times, i think there are better player in Barca, he is overrated, other Barca players do most of the work for him, on Cristiano, i do think he is more of a model but i don’t think he is that bad, he’s better than Beckham tho….and about your country, i just say what i see in the news, most of the people think is wrong for Cataluña to wants to be an independant nation, by the way my friend says as a city he prefers Barcelona than Madrid, he says: is a beautiful city, the only problem are it’s people, they are so arrogant and proud of being Catalanes when first you must be Spanish.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 8, 2012

        See? Even being from Madrid your friend recognizes Barcelona is a better city. It has always been more openminded and cosmopolitan. More beautiful too.
        There´s nothing wrong with its people. You can go there and you won´t have a problem. The past of Catalanes who have their identity issues with Spain have a right to feel that way. It´s not that serious. It happens in amny countries. They are not even the majority in Cataluña so they won´t separate. If it has not happened in Belgium and the UK it won´t happen here.
        Spain is very diverse. It all comes from 500 years ago. Different kingdoms united to form what we know for Spain nowadays. But differences are there since many times it has been a forced union
        Problem is Madrid think it has its right to tell the rest how they should feel. And life doesn´t work like that
        It has always been like that. For example I´m proud (it seems weird to say it since I don´t care about countries and flags and being patriotic) of being from Spain cos several things. One being the level of atheism. Only France is that atheist. It is a result of past times where religion was too impossed (Franco). From Europe it surprises us how much religion is a part of politics and citiziens life in America. We´ve pass that long ago. It brings nothing good

        But don´t worry for us. It seems complicated but it´s not. There are many other important things and people know it. We are really cool with each other at the end of the day (of course there are always fundamentalist people for everything, but I´m sure there are lots more in the USA than in Spain, at least for what the world can see about the USA and the news 🙂 )

        And yes Messi is just the best. Of course Barça has the best team ever these last few years. So it´s unfair to say it like that when you also have Iniesta, Xavi, etc. But it is what it is. Cristiano only makes “goles”. He doesn´t know to play and don´t colaborate on anything else to his team. What happens is that you like him physically and that blinds you 🙂

        Sorry if my English is atrocious 🙂

  3. No Thanks October 7, 2012

    Lady gaga is the biggest copycat artist in the world…shame on America and Elton John.

    Great to always see them giving back, good for
    GaGa, giving back is always great and something

    • Madea October 7, 2012

  10. Godney Spears October 7, 2012

    # 1 is…you have to be an idiot to be named as GaGa.
    # 2 is…you have to be an idiot with a fugly face with no self-esteem to like her.

    Doesn’t get any more basic than that!

    • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2012

      buahahahaha
      A britney Spears fan talking about other artists artistry and fans… biggest joke on TGJ today
      Your fave is a marketing product who could not resist the pressure after only 5 years. After that she couldn´t bounce back cos she can´t sing, can´t songwrite, can´t create. So once the spark that only lasted 5 years went… she was done
      We are talking about musicians here please. Just leave the post please 🙂

  11. Queen of Artpoop October 7, 2012

    And I am so sick of this Xerox machine exploiting gay issues to win publicity.
    And it’s her fans as much as it is her. It really is. Her fans are the most universally-despised in the stan world.

    Stans for every other artists hate Little Monsters; they are just so beyond delusional, and not just in the “lol ur pressed/delusional” way — I mean they are totally nuts, totally out to lunch and has nothing to say.

    They just argue that she makes awesome pop songs, the new queen of pop and quality videos and change the pop music. They insist that she is single-handedly changing the human race & Billboard. They think that it’s just because of her that ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ and 15 million copies sold Born This Way..she got repealed, they think she’s saving millions of lives and they think she’s leading a revolution amongst youth.

    Is there ANY STAN BASE that finds Monsters even TOLERABLE? I can’t even find her orginal other than copying Madonna and others.

    Dont bother argue with them about this famous Xerox machine, you dont want to blow your brains out. Arguing with stans of Beyonce, Mariah, Madonna, Britney, Rihanna or even Christina is fun, but goddammit, the Monsters are insufferable, pathetic and so low!
