Lady Gaga's Foundation Spent $5,000 on Charity, $150,000 on Philanthropic Consulting

$50,000 was spent on social media


You can't blame her. She was born that way.

Lady Gaga’s charity took in more than $2.5 million in 2012 - but paid out just a single $5,000 grant, while spending $50,000 on social media.

The pop superstar's Born This Way Foundation spent millions on consultants, lawyers and publicity experts, plus more than $500,000 on its 23-event Born To Be Brave bus tour, which visited US cities 'inspiring' disillusioned youths.

The non-profit organisation - which received $2.66 million in revenue - paid out a staggering $406,552 for legal fees, $300,000 for 'strategic development' and $150,000 for 'philanthropic consulting'.

So that's 5K on philanthropy, 150K on philanthropic consulting.

To no one's surprise, her foundation is basically a promotional tool for a woman who is constantly looking for new ways to promote herself and who used gay rights and bullying as springboards.

Questions remain about what the foundation was doing to possibly eat through $400K in legal bills alone.
