Lady Gaga Honors Jamey Rodemeyer

by at . Comments

Lady Gaga moved us last night at the iheartradio music festival when she performed a tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer, a young fan who committed suicide last week.

"We lost a little monster this week and I wanted to dedicate this song to him tonight," Gaga said of the teenager, before belting out an eight-minute, stripped-down, yet still spirited version of "Hair," her anthem of individuality.

Watch the singer's full, moving performance right here:

Mid-song, Lady Gaga said "Jamey, I know you're up there looking on us, and you're not a victim, you're a lesson to all of us ... Bullying is for losers."

Rodemeyer was only 14 when he took his own life last Sunday, following online bullying (specifically gay slurs) for a year. He considered Gaga his idol.

As celebrities go, he certainly could do worse. R.I.P.
