Fresh off Lady Gaga's headlines about vomiting on stage in Barcelona, mother monster has been getting press that's a little bit less gross and a lot more philanthropic!
In Iceland yesterday, Yoko Ono bestowed Lady Gaga with the LennonOno Grant for Peace.
In addition to receiving a puzzle-shaped trophy, according to E! News, she also received a $50,000 grant.
The native New Yorker explained, "I will be donating this grant to the Elton John AIDS foundation and I will be working closely with them to ensure that the money goes specifically to those orphans and disadvantaged youth in America born with HIV or AIDS."
Her philanthropic ways didn't go unnoticed to John Lennon's widow. In addition to her Born This Way Foundation, Lady Gaga contributed to Haiti's earthquake relief in 2010 and the tsunami relief in Japan.
