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.
