Lady Gaga is dead — or off Twitter, anyway. And isn’t that the same thing?

Lady Gaga is dead.

Digitally, at least.

Gaga is one of several celebrities, including Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Serena Williams, and Usher who announced their ‘deaths’ on Wednesday, in honor of World Aids Day. All will cease to tweet or post on Facebook until fans raise $1 million to buy each of their lives back.

By donating money to Buylife.org on behalf of one celebrity, fans get their favorite celebrities back on Twitter and Facebook and also help Keep a Child Alive, an organization that helps by medicine and comforts for children in Africa and India affected by HIV/AIDS.

The celebrities participating have millions of followers. All posted similar tweets announcing their “deaths.”

Lady Gaga, who made a splash when she reached 10 million fans on Facebook before President Barack Obama and currently has more than 24 million fans, tweeted at her over 7 million Twitter followers this morning: “@ladygaga is dead. I will sacrifice my digital life to fight HIV/AIDS. No more tweets little monsters until we #BUYLIFE.”

Other participants have posted their “last tweet and testament” on Buylife.org, explaining in a video what they are doing, why, and what their fans can do.

“Consider this a eulogy for @UsherRaymondIV,” said Usher, “because today I’m sacrificing my digital life to give real life to millions of people affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India. This means no more Twitter, no more Facebook from this moment forward until we raise some serious money to fight AIDS.”

It is unclear who will be more upset: celebs’ deprived followers, or the stars themselves. “Buy my life back now,” said Khloe Kardashian, “because the sooner you do, the sooner I can tweet again. Which would be great, ‘cause I’m not very good at being quiet.”

    These freaks of nature talk and do shit with their own money, it remind me of oprah the women has Billions of dallors just sitting in the bank, and she acts and pretends she loves poor people…

    she gives away stuff on her show and acts like its hers, when its companies and the media reports oprah gives away cars, bull…cheap liberals talk a good game and never walk the talk..

    She looks like something from “Mars Attacks”

    I am so sick of the limp wristed posing from these airheads. One stunt after another. That’s supposed to get everyone’s attention. She’s young and stupid. Talented or not.. she’s an idiot.

    If they really wanted to make a difference they would pool together several million dollars and spend it on AIDS prevention.
