Lady Gaga is no stranger to fashion, but this time it is for agood cause. The controversial pop singer is one of the firstcelebrities to pitch in with relief effort funds for Japan and israising money by selling prayer bracelets. The bracelets are a minimum of $5 andcome with the simple phrase “we pray for Japan” in English and Japanese, along with a picture of the Lady Gaga monster claw logo (of course). All funds will go to earthquake relief and alarger sum can be paid if the customer desires.

As far as Lady Gaga and prayer, this is a huge step in the rightdirection from the bizarre Lady Gaga prayer candle that was a part of her “Alejondro” single release. In fact, it seems the she has really matured from the over the top theatrics to an artist who cares for theworld and for her fans.

Personally, though, I hope the theatrics never stop. We don’t haveenough truly interesting performers out right now, and she is certainly that.
