14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer became the latest teen to commit suicide over bullying on Sunday (he was gay.) Back in May, he had cited Gaga as an inspiration to keep going in a video he posted online. "She lets me know that I was born this way," he said. "And that's my advice to you from her: You were born this way. All you have to do is hold your head up and you'll go far."

On Wednesday, Gaga Tweeted about his death. "The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger." She said that bullying "must become illegal. It is a hate crime." She continued:

    "I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey."


What do you think of Gaga's idea?
