Starbucks teams with Lady Gaga for 'Cups of Kindness'

Posted June 13, 2017

In a new partnership between Starbucks and Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, this new line of produce-centric beverages will translate into a 25 cent donation to the cause for every refreshing drink purchased. The artist, who's known for popular songs such as "Poker Face" and "Born This Way", took to Twitter to make the announcement and revealed that the beverage collection will be called Cups of Kindness. Starbucks announced June 12, 2017, that it's teaming with Gaga for a set of brightly colored summery drinks that will raise money for the singer’s foundation.

It's nice to see that Gaga and Channel Kindness are committed to spreading a bit of positivity, and we love that she's found a creative way to partner with Starbucks so that fans can help support the cause if they're interested! Both sound delicious and flawless for the hot summer months, and they are joined by the Ombré Pink Drink and Pink Drink on the menu.

"How we treat one another impacts how we feel about ourselves, how we feel about each other, and how healthy our communities are", the Born This Way Foundation website explained.

"I adore the entire collection, and I instantly fell in love with the Matcha Lemonade", Gaga said in a press release. And don't worry, the Matcha Lemonade and Violet Drink aren't going anywhere. This drink is made with finely ground Teavana matcha green tea, combined with crisp lemonade then shaken with ice to create a refreshingly sweet, delicious drink.

All the drinks in this Starbucks special, including the pink drinks, are only 150 calories for the grande size and are made with non-dairy ingredients. The four beverages include the new Matcha Lemonade, the new Violet Drink, the Ombré Pink Drink, as well as the Pink Drink.

Violet Drink combines a Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher with coconut milk to give it a pale purple hue that's ideal for Instagram. These kindness sleuths are identifying and documenting acts of generosity, compassion, and acceptance that shape communities, because we could all use a little good news these days.
