Jonah Mowry's Mom Speaks Out!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooInspirationSad Sad

Jonah Mowry has received A LOT of attention ever since he uploaded his powerful video on his experience with bullying.

Most of it has been positive. People without the need to further bully have seen the strong, young man he is. Of course, there has been some negative attention as well.

Some have actually had the audacity to question the reality behind the video and others are even saying bullying is "just something to get over."

Well now Jonah's mother is speaking out on all of it, and we want to listen:

First and foremost, I am proud of the responses we've gotten from people. I'm thankful. There are a lot of people that are giving their warm wishes and uplifting Jonah, and I think that's good.

I'm disappointed that people would question whether it's true. He is sick over all the horrible posts and so are we. It's very overwhelming. I'm disappointed that somebody could look at the first video and then look at the second and think it's a lie. He's a child. He's a 14-year-old boy. He's very young.

Yes, it's extremely disappointing how some could actually find this as a tool for their own negative behavior. But the important thing here is that Jonah is doing well, and he is much happier than he was when he made the first video!

As for the skeptics, they're clearly battling their own demons, and we only wish they can see what love is.

Keep being brave, Jonah!!! You have influenced and inspired more than you'll ever know!

GaGa Does Self-Portrait For The Advocate

She looks fierce!

Lady GaGa took her first self-portrait for the cover of The Advocate's August issue while on tour in Germany and we have to say, she looks amazing.

In the magazine article, GaGa had a few choice words for her skeptics who say that she uses the gay community to sell her records.

"[It's] probably one of the most ridiculous statements anyone can make about me,” Gaga states with a hint of frustration in her voice. I would say the top thing I think about every single day of my life, other than my fans, loving the music, and my family being healthy, is social justice and equality.

Rumors, shots at me as a human being, that’s what comes with the territory of being a musician and being someone who is a public figure. I care only about what I can change. What can I push forward? How can I be a part of the fight for modern social issues?"

She also goes into detail about her meeting with top Target executives who wanted to sell a special edition CD of Born This Way. After it was revealed that the company's corporate PAC made campaign contributions to support antigay candidate Tom Emmer for governor of Minnesota, GaGa told them, "You're either going to try and change or you're not." When they didn't meet her standards, she pulled out of the deal.

And rightfully so.

GaGa has been a force in the LGBT community and she will always remain an inspiration with her constant support of change.

And the cover is beautiful too. Well done, Mother Monster.
