Grammy-winning performer Lady Gaga used her outrageous fashion sense this morning to send a message about HIV and AIDS awareness.

"Today was a latex condom inspired outfit because we had to talk about safe sex," Lady Gaga said on "Good Morning America." "I really wanted to head to toe to be representative of what we women and people all over the world need to be concerned about which is the leading cause of death in women all around the world which is HIV."

Gaga is a spokesperson for MAC's Viva Glam campaign which raises money and awareness for HIV and AIDS prevention globally.

Wearing nude latex pants, a latex overcoat, a white, exaggerated hat, and flesh-toned implants around her eyes, Gaga said that her time in an egg-shaped vessel before Sunday's Grammys allowed her to experience a "rebirth."

The 24-year-old singer was carried down the red carpet in an egg by a fleet of models.

"I was in there for three days…I was viva glamming for three whole days because I wanted to have a rebirth and I think the universe needs to have a rebirth," she said. "I think we all need to be inside a vessel for a three whole days, thinking about how we can love ourselves more, protect ourselves more, live life with more passion and look not outwards for validation but inwards, look inside of yourself to your spirit and your inner light."

The native New Yorker, who has sold 60 million singles worldwide, said that her three grammy wins Sunday were a complete surprise.

"I so genuinely did not think I was going to win...I was shocked and so honored and so humbled and it was a very joyous day being able to sing 'Born This Way' for the first time."

Gaga's new hit single, "Born This Way," has already reached number one on the Billboard charts since its release last week.

"Born This Way is so much bigger than me, it's not about me at all really…the song when I wrote it, I just knew it was destined to reach so many people all over the world and the most humbling thing for me this past weekend has been watching the fans just harness onto the record and people that weren't my fans before really, really enjoying the music and feeling uplifted and a sense of positivity," she said.

Gaga Raising Money, Awareness for HIV/AIDS Prevention

Gaga sees herself as a warrior for her fans, or "little monsters" as she calls them. Born Stefani Germanotta, she has said in previous interviews that she felt like an outcast for much of her life and that her music and performances preach a message of self-acceptance.

"I was this really bad, rebellious misfit of a person—I still am—sneaking out, going to clubs, drugs, alcohol, older men, younger men. You imagine it, I did it. I was just a bad kid. And I look at them, and every show there's a little more eyeliner, a little more freedom...For some reason, the fans didn't become more Top 40. They become even more of this cult following. It's very strange and exciting," Gaga told the latest edition of Vogue Magazine.

Gaga told Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" that her young fans get the importance of safe sex.

"I know my fans very well and they think it's cool to be aware about sex, aware about the world and aware about things like HIV and AIDS and protecting themselves," she said.

Through MAC's Viva Glam campaign, Lady Gaga designed a lipstick and lip gloss that's proceeds go to HIV and AIDs prevention. She's hoping that the lipstick and lip gloss raise $50 million for the campaign. Last year, she raised $34 million. Each lipstick or lip gloss costs $14.50 and all of the proceeds go to the MAC AIDS Fund.

"MAC doesn't just represent one kind of a woman or one kind of man. They represent all of us and they herald identity in such a powerful way…I really hope so much that with the beginning of this new album and the beginning of this new era in my career as well as the new decade that we can really make more people aware of how we can protect the future generation," she said.
