Well, she does have a lot of money
You don't have to be a Lady Gaga fan to agree on this: The pop star is very generous with her money.

The singer, who turns 25 today, has reportedly donated $1.5 million to a fundraiser hosted by San Francisco-based Zynga -- with all the money going to help earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

Lady Gaga's donation adds to the $2.5 million already raised by Zynga players who purchased virtual goods that were created as fundraising items in games, including special crop seeds in FarmVille.

"I'm inspired that my little monsters banded together to help those affected by the terrible tragedy," Lady Gaga said in a statement released by Zynga.

"What Zynga's players have done for the cause is equally inspiring and I'm thrilled to partner with them to raise money that will go to Save the Children and the American Red Cross," she added.

Zynga and Lady Gaga are the perfect match; they both profit by copying the works of others.

Why are you so cruel??? She wants to share her money and donated there where it's necessary! What you did for those people??? Perhaps you donated more??? If you don't believe she has good intention, try to download video with her interview from http://www.torrentoff.com She says that she is indifferent to people's sorrow, and want to do something for them.
