WATCH: Lady Gaga Dedicates Song to Bullied Gay Teen

The Mother Monster sang "Hair" in honor of Jamey Rodemeyer, her 14-year-old fan who committed suicide

Lady Gaga took a moment out of her recent concert to pay tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer, her teen fan who committed suicide last week.

During her Sept. 24 performance at the iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas, the Mother Monster, 25, dedicated her song "Hair" to the 14-year-old Rodemeyer, who loved her music so much he quoted her in one of his final messages before taking his life.

"I lost a Little Monster this week and I'd like to dedicate this song to him...," she said weepily, sitting at her motorcycle piano. "Tonight, Jamey I know you're up there and looking at us and you're not a victim. You're a lesson to all of us... Let's do this one for Jamey!"

As she spoke to the audience, a huge screen projected his image and information about Jamey -- including Twitter messages he'd written to her -- in the background. She then launched into a heartfelt version of her song about identity, in which she changed the lyrics to include Jamey's name in the chorus.
 
"This is my prayer, Jamey I swear, that I'll die livin' just as free as my hair..." she sang. "Bullying is for losers... Put your hands up for Jamey!"
