Lady Gaga Named 2010's Most Charitable Celebrity

Charity organization DoSomething.org has named Lady Gaga No. 1 on its new "Top 20 Celebrities Gone Good" list due to her outstanding work as a gay rights activist in the last year.

The pop singer publicly called for the repeal of the US military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy months ago, which was signed by President Obama on December 22. She was also very outspoken in her support of same-sex marriage and raised money towards HIV/AIDS prevention worldwide.

Keep a Child Alive founder Alicia Keys raised $1.1 million with her Digital Death Campaign, which earned her the runner up spot. She and her new husband Swizz Beatz also went the extra mile by adopting a South African village where they plan to build schools.

Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, Taylor Swift, Matt Damon, Oprah Winfrey, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Degeneres filled out the list's top 10, each with generous contributions of their own.

    It's nice to know that a lot of people are starting to be aware of what is happening around us, and many are generous to lend a helping hand. Kudos to all the people who are making a difference in the world

    Wonder how much this little honor cost the poser known as Lady GaGa....I bet she isn't even the most charitable celebrity on her own tour. Seriously, this is an even bigger crock of crap than Taylor Swift winning Songwriter of the Year! Nice to know you can still buy yourself awards in Hollyweird!

    oh my lady gaga..No age gap is too wide if you both feel so right.We don't care about the social "norm" but chemistry. Many couples with age gap work out fine and get alone splendidly. We celebrate the age gap love and May-December romance. Check out Euagecupid co`m if you are interested in ageless relationships..
