The Popdust Files: Awards, lady gaga

Lady Gaga was honored at the Trevor Project’s “Trevor Live” event in Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday. While Miley Cyrus, the Glee cast, Queen Latifah and Neil Patrick Harris all attended the event as performers, Gaga was given the Hero Award for her anti-bullying efforts, which have included a meeting with President Obama and working with WeStopHate.org in attempts to make bullying a hate crime, following the suicide of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer. “I want my fans and people all over the world to know that there’s always somebody that’s listening. But I want them to know they’re listening before it gets too late,” Gaga told the audience. She dedicated the award to Rodemeyer and thanked his family, who she believes will continue to work towards their shared goal in his memory. “[The Rodemeyers] are such a wonderful. loving, kind and beautiful family, and I know that they will continue to work in Jamey’s name and in the name of their family to end discrimination, to end fear, and—to as much as we can—come together, as it will take a village, and an army in some countries and continents, to make bullying a hate crime,” she explained. “This means more to me than any Grammy I could ever win.” Watch her speech below.
