Lady Gaga Performs Tribute to Teen Suicide Victim



Lady Gaga slowed down the excitement at the iheartradio music festival last night to perform a touching tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer, a young fan who committed suicide last week.

"We lost a little monster this week and i wanted to dedicate this song to him tonight," Gaga said before playing a stripped down version of her song about individuality, "Hair."

Rodemeyer was only 14-years-old when he took his own life last Sunday, following online bullying with gay slurs for over a year. He considered Gaga his idol.

During the moving performance, Lady Gaga said "Jamey, I know you're up there looking on us, and you're not a victim, you're a lesson to all of us" -- and at one point shouted ""Bullying is for losers."
