Ono Awards Gaga Peace Prize

Lady Gaga’s polarizing antics may spark passionate debates among music lovers. But amid that intense discussion, Yoko Ono finds peace. The legendary peace activist awarded Gaga the LennonOno Grant for Peace Tuesday, an award established in honor of her late husband, John Lennon. Presenting the award in Iceland, Ono commended Gaga, because “when you are number one, you don’t want to risk yourself. And she did.” Gaga dedicated the award to youth empowerment, saying, “I dare you to be compassionate in a cynical age.”
