  1. why is this an article in pink news?

    1. Jock S. Trap 19 May 2011, 4:08pm

      I’m guessing because she’s Bisexual and a Gay rights campaigner?

    2. I agree Modern1st. smart and a bit of rough you’ll go far here mate

    3. Because she sticks her neck out for us you idiot. I’m not fan of her music, but I can appreciate what she does for the LGBT community. I don’t think she represents me, but I don’t think you do either. And as one of the most popular musicians at the moment I’d prefer her to be on our side. Why are wanna be triga gay porn stars so bitter, must be all that ‘straight acting’? You’re fit modernist, but not as smart as le corbusier.

        Definitely Eddy, couldn’t have put it better meself.

      2. fcuk off you muppet. She is shallow grace jones wanna be who all the legit stars avoid. She could only get the treacherous beyonce married to anti gay jay-z to duet with her. Give me brad and angelina anyday they have also put their careers and necks on the line by stating they will not get married until we can. Not that you’d know it on this site

        1. That was to eddy

          1. I thought you might like jay z with you being a gangster, dya git mi blud, all that bullshlt street talk you come out with on here. LOL. And didn’t I read you you sticking up for some jamaican homophobic rapper a few months ago? I can’t even remember his forgettable name. Grace Jones is very cool, I prefer her music, but she was in part (especially image) a product of jean paul goude. I don’t love gaga’s music but I know gaga is her own product, and she writes songs about gay rights, which is more than grace has done. Both are gay icons. And what’s so deep about ‘pull up to the bumper’? All pop music is shallow, that’s the point of pop, have you never seen a warhol soup can painting? If you want some depth go and try mozart or glass. And maybe you could tell me which are the legit stars you are talking about that avoid gaga?

          2. anyway if Gaga is so gay friendly why duet with beyonce? Jay-Z hates us?

          3. Jock S. Trap 20 May 2011, 2:40pm

            Oh Blimey James! if your gonna go down that route what happens if you find out your related to Hitler?
            I’m not fan of Lady Gaga but the woman is about supporting the LGBT community and not forgetting is Bisexual herself.
            If what you want is a list of Gay Right supporters so you can tick the ones you want to supporting us, what do you suggest we do with the open supporters you don’t want?
            You might think your being moral but your coming off very immature.
            The woman is supporting us for pitys sake, do they really need our permission to do so?
            I don’t think so!

          4. if your husband hates queers you probally do too

          5. Jock S. Trap 20 May 2011, 4:01pm

            You mean like George W. and Laura Bush….
            Oh nope hang on Nope thats right he doesn’t but she does openly support and supports Equal Marriage.
            That sort of thing you mean?
            Then of course there’s Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne…
            Oh nope its the same there..

          6. Jock S. Trap 20 May 2011, 4:03pm

            Your argument doesn’t ring true at all James! you just going on how You feel not others, (then you call me selfish!).

  2. Jock S. Trap 19 May 2011, 4:08pm

    Good for her.

  3. @MODERN1ST Because she is using her voice in more then one sense while some of us are wasting time here fighting our little ego trips. Bless you Lady.

    1. Sod the bitch she’s fake I dont want that idiot fighting for me

      1. As true hero she does it anyway so you better live with that or ask her personaly to cross you from Santa GaGa human rights wish list.

  4. And here comes the ritualistic worship of the celebrity gods and goddesses. I’ve stated in the past that Gaga (which means being in a “trance”) has assumed the role of “pope” of the new gay “priesthood” of the gay mafia. Gay people are now being told to worship her as a god (or world’s most powerful celebrity) even though they are for equality, being that there is nothing equal in worshiping and empowering another human being. Nothing.

    1. “I’ve stated in the past that Gaga (which means being in a “trance”) has assumed the role of “pope” of the new gay “priesthood” of the gay mafia.”

      Sweet Jesus, you ARE taking the piss here, aren’t you? I mean, seriously, this isn’t normal. Schizophrenia, yes, but normal no.

    2. Jock S. Trap 20 May 2011, 8:29am

      pepa
      You a bit of a nutter really , ain’t ya?
      Definitely paranoid.
      Is that how being in the Republican Tea Party leaves you?

    3. Worshipping human right campaigner should be a matter of gratefulness rather then counting amount of money they make. She deserves every penny voicing “I was born this way” Just imagine how LGBT or straight kids of any race feel repeating this words every day. So empowering.

      1. Jock S. Trap 20 May 2011, 4:10pm

        Exactly.
        The fact that Born This Way was No.1 in the States for Seven weeks was it? breaking records with the US iTunes surely even the critical can’t dismiss the brilliance of this positive message of acceptence and the fact it did so well?
        I would have thought that her standing up and doing this song, this album makes a huge diferent to a lot of people.
        Are we to deny that? and deny a positive message? just for the sake of some jealous, greedy people who wish for everyone to be as miserable as them?

  5. Yay! Good for her. If there are going to be celebrities, and they are going to have influence, then I’d like the most influencial one to be on my side. And she is, so she has my support. It has nothing to do with whether she’s “fake” or whatever the hell the point was about Grace Jones; it’s very simple. She is a powerful ally, and we should be glad to have her. Why do people get so upset when this girl, uniquely positioned to help them, tries to do so?

    (and who’s grace jones?)

    1. Who wants to be helped by a fame hungry cokeheaded idiot? Oh wait you

      1. Yeah I do. I’m grateful for every last supporter and I don’t see why you aren’t. I’m amazed anyone wants to help us at all with these attitudes floating around.

      2. As a true Christian Santa GaGa does not discriminate.
        She loves you and there is not much you can do about James!
        As an artist she is doing what she believes in.
        Not sure I like all her songs but Alejandro made me cry when I watched video for the first time.
        As human being she is precious.
        What a role model.
        We bow to you your Highness.
        Queen of Queens.

  6. Lady Gaga, Oprah, and Sir Elton John—all tremendously outspoken in their support for gay rights. That’s fantastic that they’re among the top five most powerful celebrities!

  7. seriously, justin bieber??? i have nothing against him, but i completely forgot about him until i read this.
