Lady Gaga, 500 Funeral Attendees, And A NY Senator All Commemorate Jamey Rodemeyer

Not only did the funeral of 14-year-old bullycide victim Jamey Rodemeyer get over 500 attendees, but Lady Gaga dedicated her performance of “Hair” to him during this Saturday’s I Heart Radio festival.

Wait… why did she play “Hair” and not his favorite song, “Born This Way?”

Even though Rodemeyer’s parents buried their son in a “Born This Way” t-shirt, Gaga’s stripped down performance of “Hair” set a more somber tone with lyrics about self-love, something Rodemeyer advocated in his “It Gets Better” video. Here are some of the lyrics:

I just wanna be myself / And I want you to love me for who I am… And I want you to know, I am my Hair… I don’t wanna change / And I don’t wanna be ashamed… I’ve had enough / This is my prayer / That I’ll die living just as free as my hair

Meanwhile, amid Lady Gaga’s anti-bullying meeting with President Obama, New York Sentaor Jeff Klein wants to make the kind of cyberbullying Rodemeyer endured a felony. Lady Gaga would probably agree as she thinks, “Bullying is for losers.”

Rest in peace, little monster.

      I am such a fan of the Lady – she’s a wonderful human being. She cares, she works to inspire, and she has a heart as big as the ocean.

      It’s truly stunning how many people get angry at Gaga for her advocacy. it makes no sense at all.
