Lady Gaga and a few powerful pals including Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra and Kathleen Sebelius, the U.S. Health and Human Services secretary, paid a visit to Harvard University to launch the singer’s anti-bullying effort, dubbed the Born This Way Foundation.
Speaking at the University’s Sanders Theatre, Gaga told the crowd (via The Boston Globe): “I’m not here today to give you an answer. This is about transformative change. This is about changing the climate of the school environment and not putting the power in the hands of the teachers or the government. … I don’t believe they have the answers. I believe that you do.”
The singer — sporting a dramatic black headpiece and oversized black sunglasses — also introduced the Born to Be Brave bus, which will make stops on her upcoming tour and serve as a safe place for her “little monsters” to come together and talk about ways to end the violence.
“It will welcome anyone from any walk of life … to come and hang out and talk about love, acceptance or kindness,” Gaga continued. “And the best thing about it is it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be, essentially, a tailgate.”
