Lipstick went Gaga over AIDS

January 14, 2010

Super Heroes vs. Super Models

Fictitious super heroes such as Superman, Spiderman, Batman, and Iron man all have saved the world one way or another, but of course only in comic books and on cinema screens.

Now imagine the world being saved by a young aspiring musician, as she sells one lipstick at a time with quite some reputation of being controversial, in revealing outfits, while displaying hyper sexuality (quite frankly I would call it indecency, no matter if it is Madonna, Brittany or Adam Lambert!), she has on some out of this world make up and hats – literally and displays innate openness to discus LGBT issues on television and in concerts almost regularly.

It is happening and Lady Gaga is doing it by selling MAC Viva Glam lipstick VII for only $14.00 a piece.  Every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipgloss is donated to the MAC AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.

To me it is enough to prove that Lady Gaga is not only the flavor of the month or talk of the town or queen of gossip magazines but she is also a real life super hero!

Very recently I read a quote by Lady Gaga and fell completely in love with the person she is underneath several layers of makeup, massive wigs, sun glasses, veils, lace, net, masks, hats made out of straws, jewels and feathers… oh and not to mention the fake blood and crape paper that she uses sometime to cover her face with.

In an interview with Brian Coulton, for Metro Canada Lady Gaga talked about the comments that she gets from her critics, she said “From their mouths to God’s ears, I hope I am the future of pop music, only because my intentions are good,” she also said “I want to do great things for other people. If that means I’m the future, then there should be more of me.” How is super positive attitude and good intentions as her super powers?

She also said “I can write music all day about celebrities and fame and money, but none of that really matters if I can’t give back to young people,” isn’t that impressive – not only that she is helping out youth but also that she writes her own music.  Most pop stars these days really aren’t doing it; she is indeed a trend setter.

Though, Lady Gaga is not the only bold and beautiful MAC icon.  Over past 20 years MAC have been very careful in choosing their spokesperson who has a very unique sense of fashion, talent and is  precisely ahead of their time to serve the cause but with the sultry, hot and edgy image that Lady Gaga adheres so very well. 

Pamela Anderson, Christina Aguilera, Fergie, Mary J Blige, Chloe Sevigny, Linda Evangelista, Dita Von Teese, Missy Elliot, Cindy Lauper, RuPaul and Elton John, all have been a great a success for MAC AIDS Fund. 

MAC AIDS Fund raised over $165 million up to day and is the second-largest worldwide corporate giver to AIDS foundations.  The whole entire MAC team is extremely proud of its philanthropic work and is also very grateful of communities it’s in and its affiliations with celebrities that made it possible. How do I know? I am a MAC girl!!! 

Not so much like Lady Gaga but my job etail is to put on makeup, wear trendy clothes, with positive attitude and a smile, be the face of MAC.  Use our artistry to inspire people and educate each one of our client about our AIDS Fund and be a part of this incredible mission.

Where MAC created a lipstick just for Material Girl Madonna called Russian Red it also gave thousands of men, women and children living with AIDS and HIV a reason to smile for. 

Now my question is who do you think MAC’s next spokesperson is going to be? ? ?

Someone out of the ordinary… Adam Lambert?  :-/
