Lady Gaga Raises Awareness for HIV/AIDS Prevention

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Grammy-winning singer Lady Gaga is using her unique fashion sense to send a message about HIV and AIDS awareness.

Gaga appeared on ABC's Good Morning America on Thursday dressed in a "latex condom inspired outfit" to bring attention to the threat of HIV, she said.

The 24-year-old singer is a spokesperson for MAC's Viva Glam campaign which raises money and awareness for HIV and AIDS prevention globally.

Wearing nude latex pants, a latex overcoat, an exaggerated white hat and flesh-toned implants around her eyes, Gaga said that her time in an egg-shaped vessel before Sunday's Grammys allowed her to experience a "rebirth."

The native New Yorker, who has sold 60 million singles worldwide, said that her three Grammy wins Sunday were a complete surprise.
