CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (AP) — Lady Gaga is causing a small sensation on Harvard University's campus.

The singer is there for Wednesday's launch of her Born This Way Foundation with Oprah Winfrey and U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Lady Gaga says in an interview with The Associated Press that the foundation's goal is to empower youth and inspire bravery. She says its message will be for students to create a more loving environment at their schools and in the world.

About 100 students mobbed the singer as she arrived on campus in a sleek black dress, tall hat and platform shoes. She signed autographs and posed for photos.
