Lady Gaga Reaches Out To Little Monster James Bassett's Family

23 June 2011

Lady Gaga has demonstrated once again how much she loves her fans, reaching out to the family of one of her little monsters.

16 year old Gaga fan James passed away in December 2010. His last request was for Lady Gaga to receive a book he had spent the past few years putting together for her.

His friends made a video about James, and asked fans to send the link to Gaga on Twitter to spread awareness of his wish.

Their plea worked, and Gaga has now seen the video and is getting in contact with James' parents.

Gaga tweeted, "Just saw this video relating to the loss of a beautiful fan, James Monster. Will email his mom. Were all here for you."

It's great to see how much Lady Gaga really does care about her little monsters!
