Pop superstar Lady Gaga has been named the most charitable celebrity of 2010. According to a list made by the charity DoSomething.org entitled “Celebs Gone Good”, the Bad Romance singer has topped a list of other philanthropic stars.
Lady Gaga earned the title for her work on the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ campaign and the Hands Up for Marriage Equality event, which supported same-sex marriage.
The 24-year-old was also the face of the MAC Viva Glam range, with all proceeds going to HIV and AIDS charities.
Singer Alicia Keys, 29, who also devoted her time to the fight against HIV and AIDS, came in second place. As the founder of Keep a Child Alive, Keys worked harder than ever to provide AIDS treatment worldwide and raised $1.1 million with her Digital Death Campaign, thanks to the help of celebrities such as Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Usher and Justin Timberlake.
Justin Bieber ended up in 10th place after dedicating a music video to children battling illness worldwide and donating $150,000 to a New York, hospital. He also worked with Pencils of Promise to build schools and increase education opportunities for less-fortunate children, and dedicated $1 of every concert ticket sold to the organization.
Other celebrities who feature in the top ten include Taylor Swift, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Nick Jonas, Matt Damon, Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey and Leonardo DiCaprio.
