You can’t keep a bad girl down. Well, a good girl in this particular case. Just as Lady Gaga is about to unleash her Blu-ray/DVD of ‘The Monster Ball’ as well as a 14-track remixed package of her hit ‘Born This Way’ album (simply called ‘The Remix’), she’s also launched the ‘Born This Way Foundation’ (‘BTWF’), a charity that will support global programs promising youth empowerment.
The not-for-profit organisation will assist various established foundations addressing such youth issues as isolation, bullying and low self-esteem, as well as assist in career development.
Led and directed by Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, BTWF will partner with top foundations in the US as well as the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, one of the most cutting edge institutions focusing on the power of the internet as a means to promote positive change.
“My mother and I have initiated a passion project. Together we hope to establish a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment,” said Gaga.
Additional details will be announced shortly, with the official launch set to take place in early 2012.

‘Born This Way – The Remix’ and ‘The Monster Ball – Live at Madison Square Garden’ DVD are both out November 25.
