London: Pop star Lady Gaga says she wears veils because she is constantly mourning the world`s suffering and problems. The `Born This Way` singer, who is often pictured with her face covered by a dark mesh - traditionally worn by women who have recently lost their loved ones, said she wears it in order to show solidarity with those who are suffering, reported a website.
"People ask me why I wear veils. I reply, I`m mourning. Mourning what? Well I figure something must be going on somewhere," Gaga wrote on her Twitter page.
The 25-year-old launched her own charity for youth empowerment, the Born This Way Foundation and said she wants to help people worldwide develop a new standard of care towards one another.
"Together we hope to establish a standard of bravery and kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment," she said.
