Days after Lady Gaga tweeted her vow to stop bullying and make it illegal, the star dedicated a song at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas to Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14-year-old boy who recently took his life after suffering years of bullying.
Before she sang "Hair," Lady Gaga told the crowd, "I wrote this record about how your identity is really all you’ve got when you’re in school ... so tonight, Jamey, I know you’re up there looking at us, and you’re not a victim. You're a lesson to all of us."
The weekend of his suicide, Rodemeyer posted lyrics from Lady Gaga's "The Queen" on his Facebook page, the International Business Times reported. He wrote, "Don't forget me when I come crying to heaven's door."
