Lady Gaga has traveled the world and is famous in every country on Earth, but she still hasn’t forgotten where she came from.
Today the pop star pledged $1 million to the American Red Cross to aid the Hurricane Sandy relief in New York.
Gaga as we all know was born and raised in New York City. When she was 19 she moved out and lived on her own where she became a fixture on the downtown music scene before hitting it big.
“If it wasn’t for NYC: the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today,” Gaga posted on LittleMonsters.com. “New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion.”
“Please accept this gift on behalf of myself, my parents Joe and Cynthia, and my sister Natali; with our deepest gratitude New York for raising us,” she added.
“Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas”
Oh Gaga you’re so sweet!
