Lady Gaga Will Donate ‘Born This Way’ Country Remix Profits To Charity

Gaga is always looking for ways to help out and this is a great idea.  Donating the proceeds from a song that was put out just for fun to charity.  A charity that she feels very strongly about, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

Late last month, Lady Gaga unveiled a guitar-searing, harmonica-infused, countrified version of her smash hit single, “Born This Way,” via her Twitter account. Ten days after its debut, Gaga has officially released the track, and will donate some of the proceeds from the tune to charity.

A portion of the money earned from sales of “Born This Way (Country Road Version)” will go to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which, according to the organization’s website, “strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”

The country remix of the hit song, which was co-produced by Gaga and Fernando Garibay, boasts some new lyrics that play up the track’s twangy influences. Over picked mandolin accompaniment, Gaga sings, “If I wanna make it country, baby, it’s OK/ ‘Cause I was born, I was born, I was born this way/ From London, Paris, Japan back to USA/ I was born on the road, I was born to be brave.”

In February, during a chat on Gayle King’s talk show, Gaga confirmed that there would be two videos for “Born This Way.” The Nick Knight-directed, sci-fi-influenced clip for the song’s original version dropped at the tail end of February. Meanwhile, there’s no word when or if Gaga will ever release a video for the “stripped-down” country version of the track considering she just wrapped up work on her clip for Born This Way’s second single, “Judas.”
