Lady Gaga serenades kids at Mexican orphanage

Lady Gaga took time out of her holiday in Mexico to visit kids at a local orphanage over the weekend (ends17Jul16).

The pop star has been enjoying down time with friends in Cabo San Lucas, but she decided to include a stop at Casa Hogar, a centre which prepares underprivileged boys for adoption or to reunite with their families.


A post on the charity's official Facebook page shows photos of Gaga meeting with the youngsters, who are all holding book bags given to them by the singer.


The accompanying caption reads: "Thank to Lady Gaga, for the visit, for sharing real healthy dinner with our children and staff (sic)!!! She brought backpacks and (books) for each one of the boys- she is an incredibly beautiful and humble person."


Organisers at Casa Hogar also shared a video of Gaga singing an emotional a cappella version of her hit empowerment anthem Born This Way, as the boys in the orphanage surrounded her.


Gaga took to her own Instagram account after the visit to show off the hat and bag she received from the kids at Casa Hogar.


"Already miss the boys at Casa Hogar," she captioned the image. "Wore my shwag (swag) out on the town. mis amores (my loves)."


She also shared the video on Twitter, adding, "Casa Hogar Cabo AC Facebook Group: donate to these gorgeous boys, help build a home so they can be w/ (with) their sisters."


After her charitable visit, Gaga enjoyed all Cabo had to offer, including a night out at local club Mandala, where she partied with her friends and happily obliged to take pictures with excited fans.


Noticeably missing from her crew was fiance Taylor Kinney, who celebrated his 35th birthday on Friday (15Jul16), the same day Gaga was pulled over by a police officer in Malibu, California because her vehicle didn't have licence plates.


The 30-year-old became a qualified driver after passing her test earlier this month (Jul16), and Gaga took to Twitter the next day (16Jul16) to downplay the highly-publicised traffic stop.


"Ya I got pulled over. Big deal! I just haven't received plates yet for my new pick up!," she wrote.
