Teen's death incites Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga says she knows what happened to Jeremy Rodemeyer.

The entertainer said Wednesday on Twitter that more needs to be done about the bullying that preceded the Williamsville North High School freshman's suicide.

In three separate tweets, she said: "The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life."

"Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become be illegal. It is a hate crime."

"I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it "MakeALawForJamey."

Jamey posted a lyric from the Lady Gaga song "The Queen" on his Facebook page the night before he took his life: "Don't forget me when I come crying to heaven's door."
