“Today was happiest day I’ve ever had”, Gaga tweeted last night, “Here’s me with my LennonOno Peace Prize. Yoko says, its a piece of the sky”.
Gaga received her LennonOno Grant For Peace Award yesterday (the birthday of both John Lennon and his son, Sean) in Reykjavik, Iceland, for her humanitarian work and activism.
“Lady Gaga is one of the biggest living artists of our time…”, Yoko said: “…she is not only an artist, she is also an activist, using her art to bring better communication to the world. She is being acknowledged for her activism, and how her album “Born This Way” has widely changed the mental map of the world. And how it has made us deal with the future world, which happens to be here already.”
For this once-in-a-lifetime moment, Gaga donned another look from Saint Laurent Spring 2012 collection – beige blouse with beaded swirled rope like pussy bow collar, matching skirt and fabulous cropped tail tuxedo blazer.
Gaga accepted the the award and a charitable donation that she will donate to the Elton John AIDS Foundation to support their work combating HIV among disadvantaged youth in the U.S.
