Lady Gaga: I just want to be happy

The all-seeing eyes of Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has embraced and supported the LGBT community with inclusive songs, videos and performances. She was honoured in 2011 with the Trevor Project‘s Trevor Hero Award for her LGBT advocacy work. Working with her mother, she launched the Born This Way Foundation, which “is committed to supporting the wellness of young people, and empowering them to create a kinder and braver world.”

In this video, Lady Gaga talks about the pressure she is under both as a money-maker and as an advocate (see these articles on homophobia, homophobia and more homophobia).

Like all of us, Lady Gaga just wants to be happy, to be authentic, and to be herself. She can’t pretend otherwise.

I will be myself until they fucking close the coffin.
