Lady Gaga Launches Born This Way Foundation At Harvard

By Denise Lavoie, Associated Press

CAMBRIDGE (AP) — Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey are sitting down for a chat at Harvard University to launch the singer’s Born This Way Foundation.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports.

The pop star and famous talk-show host sat Wednesday in front of a group of more than 1,100 students, faculty and invited guests as Oprah interviewed Gaga about the foundation.

The singer said the foundation’s goal is to empower youth and inspire bravery. The foundation shares a name with her hit 2011 single and album, “Born This Way,” a song whose lyrics describe self-empowerment.

WBZ-TV’s Kate Merrill reports.

Earlier Wednesday, Lady Gaga caused a sensation on the Ivy League campus when she arrived in Harvard Yard in a sleek black dress, tall hat and platform shoes. She signed autographs and posed for photos as students yelled, “We love you, Lady Gaga.”

    This “Elitist”is not a Teacher, not a parent and needs to understand that tolerance is a two way street, not just a prescribed yellow brick road for the likes of her and Oprah. I do enjoy Lady Gaga performing, but she is out of her league here. I caught the swipe at Teachers after we are expected to be babysitters, psychologists, mindreaders and now nutritionists.
    Go add some muscle tone to those arms, they look shapeless compared to Madonna.
