Lady Gaga donates $1 million to New York for Hurricane Sandy relief




While the New york area is still reeling from Hurricane Sandy, Lady Gaga decided to take out her wallet and pledge a little bit to help out the Big Apple. You know, just enough of her pocket change to buy some folks a burger or something.

"Today I pledge 1 million dollars to New York & The American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief," she wrote on Wednesday. "If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today. New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion. Please accept this gift on behalf of myself, my parents Joe and Cynthia, and my sister Natali; with our deepest gratitude New York for raising us. Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas"

Apparently New Jersey can deal with its own problems, but hey, that's what Bruce Springsteen is for, right? He's got to have a few more bucks lying around.
