Lady Gaga donates $1m to Sandy victims

2012-11-08 09:34
New York - Lady Gaga is donating $1m to the Red Cross to aid those affected by Superstorm Sandy.

The New York-born singer posted on her blog on Wednesday that she is pledging the money on behalf of her parents and sister.

She also said she "would not be the woman or artist that I am today" if it weren't for places like the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn.

She writes: "Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours."

Superstorm Sandy made landfall more than a week ago, killing many of its more than 100 victims in New York City and New Jersey and leaving millions without power.

Lady Gaga added that New York is a place full of "relentless ambition".

      I thing George is being sarcastic by referring to the article about the Church of SA or something like that calling her a satanist etc and trying to ban her concert.

      Thanks Tharina, but I would have thought the " " would have been an indication of my sarcasm... People in glass houses...

    Okay, sorry about that! I misunderstood! I just get so angry about these people saying she is a satanist when they actually know nothing about her. So you are actually in my corner George! Good to know!
