Power to the people -- and the pop star.

After launching her Born This Way Foundation with Oprah Winfrey, an organization designed to celebrate individuality and empower young people, and crusading against eating disorders, the 26-year-old has leant her superstar name to another cause -- anti-bullying.

Whilst touring in Rio de Janeiro, Mother Monster posed with fans who created t-shirts emblazoned with the message, "Bullying is for Losers."

“Given the fact that she had such a huge, wide audience, [Gaga] has a great chance of being heard, because kids and teens and young adults listen to her music and they idealize her and respect her," psychologist Dr. Fran Walfish told Celebuzz.

Gaga has spoken about against bullying before.

In September 2011, she tweeted “bullying must become be [sic] illegal" after 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer committed suicide. The bisexual teen, who was harassed for this sexual orientation, cited Gaga as someone he looks up to in an “It Gets Better” video he posted to YouTube.

 

Like many of her fans, the outspoken songstress has also admitted her own struggles, including with bulimia and anorexia since she was 15.

"Lady Gaga will do wonders of healing when her female fans feel empathisized with, they’re acknowledged and validated because their queen [Lady Gaga] too experienced mistreatment just like they did," added Walfish, author of The Self-Aware Parent.

    I really appreciate Lady Gaga who gives extra attention to bullying despite of her busy and successful career. We should be like them let us not allow people to hurt those children being inferior to the crowd. Let's help them feel safe. Check safekidzone website it's cool when it comes to protecting poor kids being bullied. With a single press of panic button help would come right away.Let us not allow others to manipulate us, to step on our dignity. Let us keep our self be respected so as our beliefs and what should we suppose to have.
