Lady Gaga Teamed Up with Starbucks for the Best Reason Ever
But a pause on your usual caramel macchiato and order one of these colorful drinks that support a worthy cause.
It seems like every week there's a new "it" Starbucks drink-a unicorn frappuccino, a two-toned iced drink, a fruity pink drink on their secret menu. But this time your order will do more than just make a great Instagram snap.
Lady Gaga, singer, mental health advocate, body-confidence inspiration, has teamed up with the coffee giant to release four exclusive (and colorful!) drinks as part of their Cups of Kindness campaign. For one week only, the anything-but-ordinary drinks-which include a matcha lemonade, blackberry and hibiscus-flavored violet drink, strawberry açai pink option, and an ombré sip with lime, passionfruit and coconut-will help benefit the Born This Way Foundation, Gaga's organization that is "committed to supporting the wellness of young people, and empowering them to create a kinder and braver world." If that's not worth ordering a venti, we don't know what is.
While 25 cents of each purchase will go directly to the foundation, Starbucks says it's committed to a minimum donation, and the singer knows that every dollar helps foster a positive community. "We're healthier and happier when we live our lives with compassion," she said in a statement. "And our communities are stronger when we treat one another with generosity and respect."
Gaga has always been a leading voice in supporting victims and marginalized groups, including (but certainly not limited to) the LGBTQ community. So it's fitting that this campaign filled with colorful drinks should fall during Pride Month. We personally can't wait to drink them all. Get yours from now through June 19 at participating Starbucks in the U.S. and Canada.
