Lady Gaga delivers a video message in support of a Canadian teen and his anti-bullying campaign at school.
Toronto Star reports:
Students cheered and clapped when a personal video from Lady Gaga was shown at an anti-bullying assembly at Etobicoke School of the Arts on Friday. Up until then, students had no idea she had recorded a message and thank you to them.
Student council president Jacques St. Pierre had to keep a poker face since October, after receiving an email from Lady Gaga?s staff with a link to the video. He decided to keep it a surprise until the assembly.
?I?ve seen it over 300 times,? gushed St. Pierre, a huge fan of the mega pop star, in an interview before the Friday event.
In August, the Grade 12 student wrote to several celebrities ? including talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, singer Katy Perry and Tim Gunn from Project Runway ? hoping a message from one of them would have a big impact on students as the school launched an anti-bullying campaign.
In The Message GaGa said:
“I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you for being such a strong advocate of the LBGT community in your school. There should be more little monsters like you,” said the singer, who refers to her fans as “little monsters.”
“It is important that we push the boundaries of love and acceptance. It is important that we spread tolerance and equality for all students.”
