Lady Gaga has a new plan for how she’s going to change the world

“I would like all gender identities to know very clearly that they are included, and never exploited, ever.

I want that little boy at home that might like to be called a girl to say, “Mommy, I want to wear Dynasty. It’s a Glam Attack.” And then Mommy goes, “Oh, my son wants to be called a girl, and he wants the Glam Attack.” And then she goes and she gets it for him. And he uses it. And then there’s a bond.

It’s kind of like when kids used to come to my shows with their parents, and they’d lean over and they’d say, “Mommy and Daddy, I’m gay.” Or “I’m not a boy; I’m a girl.” Or “I’m not a girl; I’m a boy.”

I have heard those stories so many times, over and over, for all of the years that I have been in this business. And I want the same thing that I’ve had in my concerts to happen with this company.

If I’m not changing people’s lives, what are we doing here?”Lady Gaga speaking about her new beauty brand Haus Laboratories to Allure for its “Best of Beauty” Issue.
