Lady Gaga: ‘Be a leader and push the boundaries of love!’

"What I want to focus on is telling the people that aren’t bullied that they should take it upon themselves to be a part of this force of love."

Something happened when I released my new song “Born This Way.” Some people responding to the song felt that they didn’t need to be nurtured about bullying. This is very revealing to me but what I noticed in the issue was this: for those of you that are being bullied, know that the problem is not inside of you. Know that it is insecurity inside the person that is bullying you. And for those of you who don’t feel bullied, take it upon yourself to be nurturing.

Be a leader, be someone that is kind, audacious and helps to push the boundaries of love. Be a friend to someone that is bullied. If there is a girl in your class that never gets talked to and that is always walking around by herself, be cooler than anybody else. Go sit beside her and know that you are a part of the globalization of love around the world.

What I want to focus on is telling the people that aren’t bullied that they should take it upon themselves to be a part of this force of love. That was something that really bothered me. I thought to myself, “If you are not bullied, why wouldn’t you help someone that is?”

Some of us aren’t popular, some of us are not in the ‘In crowd.’ I’m still not in the ‘In crowd.’ I am bullied by tons of people all the time everyday, in the press and in my real life and from people in my past. So, push the boundaries of love!

If you are being bullied, do not seek revenge. Any restitution will be fulfilled through self-love and self-worship. Let your identity be your religion. And fight tooth-and-nail everyday for that religion.
