On Monday, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper took some time out of their busy schedules to educate the world about the grim reality that is HIV/AIDS.  Moderated by a very calm and subdued Sharon Osbourne (it’s been a long time since the reality show) the two iconic women stated the statistics about the location and reach of the disease and encouraged women, of any age and background, to practice safe sex and get tested regularly for HIV. Bringing a touch of humor to a serious discussion, Gaga promoted wearing a condom every time–”it’s not complicated, it’s a fashion statement!”

Kudos to MAC for choosing not only such strong females for their campaign, but ones who are well known for being outspoken about their sexuality.  Proving that being sexually educated means being sexually empowered, Gaga and Lauper give a discussion that is both candid and inspiring.
