Lady Gaga donates peace prize to Aids charity
REYKJAVIK (AFP) - Lady Gaga said on Tuesday she would donate a peace prize given to her by artist and activist Yoko Ono to Elton John's Aids charity.
"I will be donating this grant to the Elton John Aids Foundation and I will be working closely with them to ensure that the money goes specifically to those orphaned and disadvantaged youth in America born with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (Aids)," she said in her acceptance speech.
The LennonOno Grant For Peace is a biennial award handed out by Yoko Ono, the widow of former Beatles star John Lennon.
Ono told AFP that she wanted to honour Gaga for her work campaigning for gay rights.
