Lady Gaga’s Born Brave Bus to Return to the Road Despite Tour Cancelation
While Lady Gaga may be off tour and tending to her recovering hip after surgery, getting from A to B in a swank, 24-karat gold and leather couture wheelchair, her Born Brave Bus is returning to the road. Gaga's charity endeavors will continue without her.
The Born This Way Foundation confirmed that the BBB will make four stops beginning Saturday, March 16. The bus, which was designed as a mobile mental health unit that would tailgate in the parking lot of every Born This Way Ball date, will cruise into Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., NYC and Chicago in the matter of a few days.
The bus is covered in artwork created by little monsters and the bus and surrounding experience provides youth with an interactive way to meet like-minded peers, and to connect with local resources in their communities including behavioral and mental health services, school psychologists, mentoring, volunteer opportunities and bullying and suicide prevention resources.
Onsite counseling is not available, but those who visit the bus will be afforded the information on how to connect with local professionals who can provide the services they wish to utilize.
"Although my daughter is recovering and not able to complete the tour, it is important to her that the Born Brave Bus lives on," said Mama G, aka Cynthia Germanotta, BTWF Co-Founder and President. "The bus has already impacted thousands of young people and, with the support of our partner organizations, this incredible resource will continue to help guide the large youth populations of Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., New York and Chicago towards local support in their communities."
The visitors to the bus will be treated to food, live performances from Gaga pals the Dirty Pearls and DJ sets from Lady Starlight (who spilled the beans about Gaga's possible engagement to Taylor Kinney) and DJ White Shadow.
