As new spokeswoman for M.A.C. AIDS Fund’s VIVA GLAM campaign, Lady Gaga has dramatically upped her coverage as a voice for safe sex and condom use. And not just in America.
On March 1, the pop superstar spoke to British media outlet Sky News, promoting her message of strong self-esteem and protecting yourself against HIV and AIDS. She related her hope that all her fans — especially those most vulnerable — absorb her message and translate it into action.
“I see them every night and they are so beautiful and precious and lovely, but some of them are insecure and very troubled and not confident,” she said.
“And I think to myself about that one girl or those hundreds of thousands of girls who meet that guy at a club who makes them feel like they belong and they don’t have that negotiation. We all know that having sex with a condom is … Russian roulette.”
