Lady Gaga Launches the "Born This Way" Foundation

Wednesday, February, 29th, Lady Gaga launched her “Born this Way” foundation at Harvard University. Her main goal of this foundation is to help end bullying since she was victim at a very young age herself.  She said she wants to “challenge meanness and cruelty by inspiring young people to create a support system in their respective communities.” Gaga says not only does she hope that this foundation helps stop bullying but also to empower the youth to speak up and be brave! In front of over a 1,000 people crowd she said “When you see someone being negative to somebody else, it’s OK to intervene and stand up for someone that needs it … I don’t believe that one person can change the world. I believe that humankind, as a whole, can change the world.”  When she was asked why she feels that she will be the one to help enact a huge challenge in today’s world she laughed, and with this reply “I guess I sort of have this feeling that if I can make a song called ‘Just Dance’ really big all over the world, I might be able to make a song that’s, you know, ‘Just Be Nice!’ Gaga is very confident in her acts towards this cause, she feels as if she can related to kids with this problem very well since things like this happened so frequently  to her in her childhood and there was nothing like this around to help stop it. With experience, sympathy, and work,  that this will be one of the most successful bullying prevention around. On hand with her is Oprah Winfrey. Oprah is very connected in today’s world and hopes she can help reach out to the kids that are bullied and their bullies. Oprah has also had her fair share of difficulties, growing up as a poor child; she wants to help kids in her situation that are also underneath bulling stress. Gaga decided to elect her mother as the foundation’s president.

NIghtmares and Stitches. (New Band:The Product)

I seem to only post from class..where i enjoy ignoring my work. BUT BUT BUT! I have found an awesome new band!!!
I am so fortunate that they contacted me on twitter (@karmenskyline ) and told me that if i liked Framing Hanley (which I love!) I should check them out. So by a simple google search of "The Product" everything but the band came up. So when I searched "The Product Band" it lead me to their myspace, where I listened to ,what I immediatly downloaded, their songs "Nightmare" and "Stitches". This is a kind of band where almost immediatly I fell in love. And I also loved the fact that the drumming was intense! Usually its hard to pick up a good beat for Alternative bands but for them I found it and loved it.
And do me a favor!!! Please go like these guys on facebook! and follow them on twitter! @ProductRock. Also follow me :D @karmenskyline

Preview: I might review some clothing! Especially Craig Mabbits line: Lolipops and Cigarettes and the clothing line "Sinner Clothing" , and you can follow them at @Caige (Craig Mabbitt) and @SinnerClothing

Woah. A Post.

Again... I'm posting from school. But this time with Charlotte! (the person..not place) But my latest excuse for being so horrible at posting is because of my crazy (Now ex) boyfriend who we are still afraid is stalking me and I have just come out of hiding. (No computer/cell/facebook, etc) Sienna is a witness of all this! Ive gone almost mad! ( ) But some exciting things have happened!
I went to WINTER JAM!!!! I sat front row. Dead center. And saw...SKILLET!!! Wait..did I say "saw"? I mean I got to touch and sing with Skillet! No lie...Skillets lead singer, John Cooper, grabs my hand, pulls me of the floor to his microphone , and I sand "I don't wanna live! I don't wanna Breathe!" from their song "Comatose". I also sang some in the song "Those Nights". It was HEAVEN!

In addition to this, I had a fancy VIP pass to get me in  QnA with some aartist and the illusionist. After the show when I proceeded to get the illusionist, Brock Gill's, auto-graph HE REMEMBERED ME! :D
Also, with the meet and greet with another amazing band I've grown very fond to, "We as Human" I became so noticeably nervous that the lead singer and drummer were all like "Oh! Your so nervous! Lets Hug!" and the band proceeded to hug me!
The bands for Winter Jam were amazing. I really like Building429 and Sanctus Real. I also became a fan of "For King and Country", even though they play a genre of music I don't typically enjoy I found their music very enjoyable.

I stand, in spite of all the pain thats around
I stand, I stand here with my fist raised high
when every thing falls, when everything falls
I stand"
