Scene: Lady Gaga wore a latex dress on "Good Morning America" to bring awareness to condom usage. She told the host, "Today was a latex-condom inspired outfit because we're here to talk about safe sex . . . today I really wanted to head to toe 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." Facts: Although CDC reports that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. However, every 9.5 minutes (or 56,300 new infections), someone is contracted with HIV. On July 13, 2010, the White House released a National HIV/AIDS Strategy to combat the sexually transmitted disease.
