Lady Gaga dedicated a song to a teenage fan of hers who committed suicide during her performance at a music festival in Las Vegas over the weekend.


The Born This Way singer honoured 14-year-old James Rodemeyer at the I Heart Radio festival on Saturday night, right before she performed the track Hair.

The teenager, from Buffalo, New York, committed suicide after admitting he had been taunted on social networking sites for speaking openly about his sexuality.

He had quoted a lyric from from Lady Gaga's song The Queen on his Facebook page the night before his death.

'I lost a little monster this week and I'd like to dedicate this song to him,' Gaga told her fans.

'Tonight Jamey I know you're up there and looking at us and you're not a victim. Bullying is for losers. Put your hands up for Jamey!'

The singer had previously expressed her anger over his death on her Twitter page.

'Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 years old, took his life because of bullying,' she tweeted last week. 'Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime!'

She later told her followers that she had plans to meet with US President Barack Obama to discuss the issue.

'I am meeting with our President,' she said. 'I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it.'

Gaga also performed a duet with Sting during the show, which also featured the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Carrie Underwood and Coldplay.
