"So I have this song called "Hair" on my album "Born This Way", I really feel like I wrote this song 10 years ago, when I was 15, going to this school. Right now, believe it or not, I'm in what was the banquet hall and when we were kids we'd eat in here. I'll always think this is the most amazing school in the world but I'm sure it's no secret to anyone that some kids get bullied and don't have a seat at the table in the cafeteria. I was one of those kids and I know there are lots of kids out there that don't get to sit at the table they want to sit at. I wanted to thank you for believing in me so I could come back to my old school's banquet hall and sit at my own table. This song is about your Identity and how it's the most important thing to you, no matter what anyone says, what you have or what you don't, It is what's on the inside that matters.
I used to get made fun of because my Mom would do her hair every morning and I really looked up to my Mother; so when I would be sitting with my Latin or French textbook out I'd blow dry my hair until around 1:00 in the morning. When I'd come to school, my friends would say "Why is your hair so nice? It's all girls in this school, you don't need to look so nice for class." and it really was hard to admit "Well, I want to be like my Mom. I don't want to be like you, I want to look like my Mother." Now, my hair still means so much to me, I mean I must have 100s of wigs. So to all the kids who are bullied in school, who are too afraid to be themselves, just know that it is your freedom and right to be who you are and remember everyday that there is someone fighting for you."- from "A very Gaga Thanksgiving" ABC special, 2011
