Lady Gaga Performs A Tribute For A Gay Teen Who Committed Suicide, and Says “Bullying Is For Losers”

Lady Gaga's inspiring performance.

Lady Gaga continued to prove how amazing she can be this past weekend when she dedicated a performance to Jamey Rodemeyer, the young teen who committed suicide last week, at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

When Jamey sadly took his own life because of serious bullying for being gay, Gaga showed her support by tweeting about how she wanted bullying to be made illegal. And then at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, she performed a really moving tribute to Jamey to her song “Hair”.

Gaga said, “Jamey, I know you’re up there looking at us. And you’re not a victim, you’re a lesson to all of us.” She added, “Bullying is for losers.”

Check out Gaga’s emotional performance here:

WDYT, gURLs? Do you think it’s good that Lady Gaga is bringing attention to bullying? Do you like that she dedicated the performance to her fan? Have you ever been bullied? Discuss in the comments.

    I went to the Monster Ball yesterday and it was FANTASTIC. I’m 16, and some of my frdeins went (17-20). The people I was sitting by were in their 30s and 40s. And they were kickin’ it. There were some older ladies and I mean OLD who were wearing Lady GaGa costumes. And, right in the front row of the concert was a little three year old being held up by her dad in one of Lady GaGa’s outfits, and she was shown on the big screen. There isn’t an age limit. There is a lot of cursing and pretty sexual dialogue, but they never set an age limit. Might want to check with the local places that she’s preforming at to see if they set an age limit for her.You should go if you get the chance!!

    This is why I will always love her! I’ve been a fan for almost 4 years, I’m glad that people are recognizing her for the right reasons. 🙂

    I think it’s funny how people think bullies are insecure about themselves. They actually usually think highly of themselves. just saying. I think its great she’s standing up for something though.

    Bullying is something NO child deserves to go through. When we’re young, we are just discovering the world and ourselves and bullies are what makes us feel like we’re not even worth living. I was extremely teased as a kid for having SEVERE acne on my face and I came home crying everyday from school. I felt so ugly, so insecure, so disgusting. i felt like no guy would ever want to be with me. and so i settled for some weird 19 year old with mental problems (i was 14). i even gave my virginity to this sick bastard. and if i wasnt bullied it SURELY would not have happened. I’m glad I was strong enough to get through because it made me the person I am today. but while i was living it, it was HELL! 7 YEARS of bullying and constant teasing. Pizza face, connect the dots, HIJACK ( whatever that means)… someone even asked me if I had AIDS? R U KIDDING ME! bullies need to stopped because there are not people that are strong enough like I was to handle it. I have a AMAZING family that always showed me love and always let me know how much i was loved and wanted. Thank you mom, dad, and sisters!! I love you all!! And for all you girls out there BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR SKIN BECAUSE YOU DONT WANNA LIVE YOUR WHOLE LIFE FEELING LIKE YOU’RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, PRETTY ENOUGH, ETC. BE AT PEACE WITH YOURSELVES!!!!!! 🙂

    I swear, bullies are some serious donkey-without-the-jack holes. They’re just cowards who are way too insecure about themselves and making others just as miserable as them make them feel signifigant. At first when I heard her proposal of making bullying against the law was stupid but now I say they all should sit in jail for a few days. And gay people are some of the coolest peeps you could ever meet. They’re awesome! Like Adam Lambert. I honestly wish that someone’s suicide didn’t have to bring this to peoples’ attention but like Lady Gaga said, he was a lesson. RIP Jamey.

    For once – Gaga did something RIGHT! Absolutly no offence meant!

  • Aicha (I-e-sha)

    there is nothing wrong with being gay!!! so y do ppl make fun of gays? i hope the B****h(s) that did that to Jamey, know what they did and suffer for it. they made a poor kid take his life away.
    i also dont agree with how Jamey solved his problem. he could have talked to someone, right? i hope this never ever happens again.

    This is a major issue and I am so glad someone who influences so many people is trying 2 make a difference. Gaga your amazing! I just hope Jamey is at peace now, and the B*******s that did this to him because Jamey was honest about who he really was, are tortured with his memory for the rest of their lives.

    My sister went through some hard times with bullying (as have I) and I am so happy that this subject has been brought up. It needs to be changed, and the time is now before more tragedies like this occur. I applaud Lady Gaga for everything she did – I’m not her biggest fan, but her performance almost brought me to tears. If only more celebrities used their influence in a positive way, maybe a big difference could be made. RIP Jamey.

  • Allegra

    This video, in all honesty, made me cry. I’m a huge fan of Lady Gaga, and I’ve considered suicide because of bullying in the past. Amazing performance, and it’s really good of her to bring up the issue of bullying.

  • Angela
