Lady Gaga and Elton John grace the cover of Billboard’s “We Can Be Heroes” philanthropy issue. Elton has penned an exclusive essay on HIV for the issue, while Gaga sat down for an interview. Some excerpts from that interview:

On what makes her proudest of BTW foundation:

When I see the friendships these kids have built. When I see a child with an eating disorder sit down with somebody who has a lifelong terminal illness and somebody who’s in transition — that makes me feel like we’re doing something no one else is. This is my life purpose, this foundation. This is why I was brought to life, I think.

On her ever-changing style:

There’s always a dichotomy within me. If you see me dressing really out there, I tend to be self-deprecating inside. When I dress like a lady, I tend to be feeling very wild and confident. That sounds bizarre, but I get a lot of s–t done with that blond hair. I haven’t changed. It’s just that I’m almost 30. I’m learning how to function effectively in society.

On her single, TIHTY:

It’s hard to listen to that song, it’s hard to watch it. Diane [Warren] really held my hand. I was like, “I’ve done a lot of things Diane, but can I do this?” She was like, “You can do this.” It was extremely cathartic to know that not only am I not alone, but that other men and women aren’t alone — we all have each other. Even outside of rape culture, there are a lot of people silently in pain about extremely traumatic things.

!! OMG, Sir Elton John doesn’t think the gay community cares enough about HIV these days !!

ranking-lo-mejor-de-elton-john_18905.jpg
Sir Elton John spoke at an HRC dinner in Washington, DC this past weekend with his partner David Furnish and he used the speech as a way to call out gays who aren’t looking after their health by getting tested or getting tested often enough.

“This is the critical moment in our fight, and so many of us don’t seem to care. Even in our own community. Especially in our own community. Only 30 percent of gay and bisexual men have had an HIV test in the past year.”

Elton says that not only do gay men not get tested, but that over 60% don’t even discuss HIV with their doctor, and made a point of arguing that just because HIV is not a death sentence anymore does not mean we should ignore it and that it still remains to be an epidemic.

“No one’s going to save us but ourselves. It’s on us to put an end to HIV.”

We agree with Elton. There definitely needs to be a resurgence in education about safe sex among younger folks, and a class review for people of any age. The conversation needs to continue to happen. We think it’s great that Elton is using his fame to address something that effects such a large part of the community, and not to mention his work with The Elton John AIDS Foundation.
