University of North Texas student and journalism major Jackie Guerrero wrote a letter to Lady Gaga. At the pop star's concert last Friday night at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Guerrero managed to get that letter onto the stage, and Lady Gaga read it to the whole arena. Guerrero penned a heartfelt message about Gaga's music keeping her afloat during her high school years, when bullies made her life painful.
