Lady Gaga looks after health

Lady Gaga is taking special care of herself to stop her getting lupus.

The ‘Bad Romance’ singer is not currently unwell with the disease – which can cause severe skin damage as well as harming many of the body’s organs – but is forced to pay special attention to her health to prevent her from falling ill.

She said: “Lupus is in my family, it’s genetic. It’s funny because my mother told me the other day that my fans are worried because I did talk about the fact that I was tested for lupus. The truth is I don’t have any signs or symptoms of lupus but I have tested borderline positive for the disease. As of right now, I do not have it, but I have to take good care of myself.”

The 24-year-old singer recently underwent a series of medical tests after her aunt died from the disease.

While she is trying hard to look after her health, the pop star is also busy campaigning to stop young homosexual people in America being judged by their sexuality.

She told chat show host Larry King: “There’s so many archaic things floating around in the government right now that are so misinformed and so wrong. It’s very confusing. It’s very confusing for young people, especially 14 year olds in high school who are getting sent home because they have T-shirts that have “gay” on it, as if gay is a curse word or somehow inappropriate. I just think that in terms of education – sexual education, political education and social education – in schools, I think it’s important to be specific about civil rights and a person’s worth. No person is worth any less than another human being based on their sexual orientation.”
