Although Lady Gaga is currently on a break from work, it didn’t stop her from stopping by an orphanage to empower young kids.
The Emmy-nominated singer visited the Casa Hogar home for boys in Cabo San Lucas. The home prepares underprivileged boys for adoption or to reunite with their families. During her visit, she performed an emotional rendition of her 2011 hit song ‘Born This Way’. ‘Born This Way’ is Gaga’s freedom song and she uses it to empower young people. In 2011, she told Billboard Magazine,
“I want to write my this-is-who-the-fuck-I-am anthem, but I don’t want it to be hidden in poetic wizardry and metaphors. I want it to be an attack, an assault on the issue because I think, especially in today’s music, everything gets kind of washy sometimes and the message gets hidden in the lyrical play. Harkening back to the early ’90s, when Madonna, En Vogue, Whitney Houston and TLC were making very empowering music for women and the gay community and all kind of disenfranchised communities, the lyrics and the melodies were very poignant and very gospel and very spiritual and I said, ‘That’s the kind of record I need to make. That’s the record that’s going to shake up the industry.’ It’s not about the track. It’s not about the production. It’s about the song. Anyone could sing ‘Born This Way’. It could’ve been anyone.”
After leaving the orphanage, Lady Gaga posted an Instagram picture, which she captioned “Already miss the boys at Casa Hogar. Wore my shwag out on the town. mis amores.”
