Why Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation is her life's purpose
"If we share our stories and stick together, we're stronger" she said
In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Mother Monster explained her passion behind the foundation and why it's become her life's purpose.
"There is something in the way that we are now, with our cell phones and people are not looking at each other and not being in the moment with each other, that kids feel isolated," said Lady Gaga. "They read all of this extremely hateful language on the Internet. The Internet is a toilet. It is. It used to be a fantastic resource – but you have to sort through shit to find the good stuff."
"When I see a child with an eating disorder sit down with somebody who has a lifelong terminal illness and somebody's who's in transition – that makes me feel like we're doing something no one else is," she added. "This is why I was brought to life, I think."
The Till It Happens to You singer also revealed that she still suffers from depression and anxiety. Even then, she still harbours hopes for the kids to "know that that depth that they feel as human beings is normal."
