naturalcitizen wrote:The majority (and I'm not saying ALL) of Gaga's fans are insecure teenagers who were just "born this way". *rolleyes* It makes me wonder, is there a celebrity who didn't try to capitalize on their sad bullying story from high school era. Yep, there's Adele and I find it fascinating. Just to be clear, everyone gets picked on at one point of their life, but I think people are making such a big thing out of it. We are praising all these "amazing" people who overcome problems, and I am asking - where are the people who were never afraid? What about people who weren't physically strong, but managed to keep their shit together? I am sorry, but I find it a little exaggerating when people just go and kill themselves because they're not being considered part of the "cool gang" or are being made fun of because they're smart and studious. I blame society for this.

As a matter of fact, I just saw her with oprah and her mother talking about this new organization she is forming, SSO. I forget what it stands for but the general idea is educating to prevent treating people poorly. I don't follow other stars' fan sites, but I do know Adele has a huge fan base spread across ages and demographics and that's what makes her sell so any albums. My mom loves her and she's 70!
I'm not a Gaga fan, but I know she is doing good with the 'born this way' campaign. Her telling the stories of her being bullied is an attempt to show kids that is gets better. Yes, she probably does use that to get her some more fans, but it's still a good message to get out there.
