A longtime gay-rights activist, Gaga has launched a campaign to make bullying illegal after learning about the death of 14-year-old New York native Jamey Rodemeyer, who reportedly took his own life following years of cruel taunts from peers over his sexual orientation.
The student was a big fan of Gaga, who was devastated to hear of his death and now plans to meet with President Obama to address the issue of teen suicides across the country.
In a series of posts to her ever-popular Twitter page, Gaga voiced her grief over the matter and announced her plans. "The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life," the singer revealed.
Gaga continued, "Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime. I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey"
