Lady Gaga set to open orphanage in India
Singer is apparently using her trip to the Asian country to look into the idea
Lady Gaga is set to open an orphanage in India, according to tabloid reports this morning (October 31).
The singer, who is currently in India after performing at the official after-party of the Indian Grand Prix, is reportedly using the trip to research opening an orphanage in the country.
According to The Sun, the singer has demanded that her managers allow her time to visit two orphanages in New Delhi.
A source told the paper: "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."
They continued: "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."
Lady Gaga released her second album 'Born This Way' earlier this year.
