Stars are stepping up to help with relief efforts after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast.
Lady Gaga announced on her website she would pledge $1 million to New York and American Red Cross for Superstorm Sandy relief.
"If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower East Side, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," she wrote. "New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion."

It ceases to amaze me what different types of workout music my clients request when they come to my gym. From classic rock to trance, hip-hop to Broadway, I've (patiently) heard it all!
I find that tailoring your playlist to your activity can completely change the mood, energy and pace of your workout. In fact, studies show that listening to music while you work out can increase endurance, reduce fatigue, improve performance under pressure – and even boost brainpower!
With that in mind, consider the following when deciding what makes it (and what doesn't) on to your workout playlist.

She's got a powerful voice – and one powerful kick, apparently.
On Monday night's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Aussie comedy star Rebel Wilson proved she could belt out a tune and be her own rhythm section all at the same time.
The Pitch Perfect actress joked with Leno in the interview about how she got the role of Fat Amy in the comedy about an all-girls a cappella group.
"It's a comedy, but you also have to sing in it," Wilson said. "And they're like, 'Well, she kind of looks like Adele – but can she sing?' "

Lady Gaga isn't the first celebrity to put on a few pounds.
If anyone can relate to being scrutinized for weight gain, it's Kirstie Alley.
"Most of my career I was pretty lean, so when I gained the weight, obviously people [noticed]," the former Fat Actress star, 61, tells PEOPLE. "With [Lady Gaga], she gains  pounds and it becomes this huge thing."

Lady Gaga is making good on her promise that gaining weight won't get her down.
The Grammy-winning singer – who told Elvis Duran that she's gained 25 pounds – stepped out in Paris Friday wearing a tight-fitting animal print ensemble that showed off quite an hourglass figure.
On Saturday, Gaga thanked "my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty&compassion," she Tweeted. She also shared a quote attributed to Marilyn Monroe: "To all the girls that think you're ugly because you're not a size 0, you're the beautiful one. It's society who's ugly."
