Ever since I attended my first Lady Gaga concert in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, last month, I have been impressed with her immense talent, authenticity, and unique ability to connect with people, of every age. Behind the make-up and outrageous costumes, there is a woman with a big heart. I admire her for using her platform to raise awareness and funding for AIDS research, especially for young women. I also love the fact that she is devoted to her family and that her mother attends all of her concerts. Here is Lady Gaga’s interview with Barbara Walters a couple of years ago.
