Lady Gaga visits Indian orphans

Lady Gaga is visiting orphanages during her trip to India as part of research into launching her own foundation for impoverished children, according to a U.K. report.

The Poker Face hitmaker was in New Delhi this weekend (29-30Oct11) to perform at the launch of the country's first Formula 1 race, and she also made time to visit orphans at one of the city's care homes.


Gaga played music for the kids and revealed she harbors ambitions to set up her own charity in the country, according to Britain's The Sun.


A source tells the publication, "Gaga would one day like to set up a foundation in her name to help children and, now her career has really taken off, she feels as if it's the right time to do something. She isn't the type of celebrity who just throws cash at things though.


"She wants to research it all properly and do something huge. She knows it will be a massive amount of work but she wants to start by getting involved in some orphanages that already exist and devote some of her time and money to helping them."
