Late last month she unveiled a guitar-searing, harmonica-infused, countrified version of her smash hit single "Born This Way" via her Twitter account, and now Lady Gaga plans on donating some of the proceeds from the uber-popular tune to charity.
A portion of the money earned from sales of the the singer's twangy version will go to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which, according to the organization's website, strives to "assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression."
What do Lady Gaga, Antoine Dodson and "Friday" sensation Rebecca Black have in common? Huge, viral Internet presences – ones that MTV plans to celebrate with its First Annual 'O' Awards.
MTV told press this of the new venture, "Music consumption has never been greater, and it's hugely important to our audience. We felt like the time was right to look at the convergence of technology and music fans and the YouTube celebrities who've created this new ecosystem where music is exploding."
Talk about the best birthday ever! Not only did Lady Gaga perform in front of 20,000 people last night (March 28) in L.A. - where she was serenaded by her adoring fans - but she was also gifted a something that no one else in the world can claim.
First, the "Born This Way" singer was met on stage by her dancers, who offered up a celebratory cake while the audience sang "Happy Birthday."
