Lady Gaga wants kids to rethink their entire social structure.
A bold, broad and ambitious task, but would you expect anything less from the Mother Monster? With her new Born This Way Foundation, that's exactly what she's striving for.
She has some specific ideas for how it might work, too ...
Asked by Time how an 11-year-old girl might follow Gaga's advice and become more empowered, rather than succumb to other patterns, the singer-songwriter says:
"She could go up to a person in class who maybe is not one of the cool kids and say, 'I really like your T-shirt.' Her one great loving, accepting deed for the day."
That would be a brave step, which is what the initiative is about - combatting meanness and cruelty, inspiring bravery and working toward an accepting society.
"I'm doing everything I can, working with experts, studying statistics, trying to figure out a way we can make it cool or normal to be kind and loving," says Lady Gaga.
