Shocked by the recent suicide of a gay teenager in the US, Lady Gaga has launched a campaign to fight bullying.

New York native Jamey Rodemeyer allegedly took his own life on 18th September 2011 unable to cope with years of cruel taunts from peers over his sexuality.

"The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someone's life. Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime," Contactmusic quoted her as tweeting.

"I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it... Make a law for Jamey," she added.
