Britney, Gaga and a ton of A-list celebs send a warning to Texas
Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and a hoard of A-list celebrities have signed an open letter to Texas over recent moves to introduce anti-LGBT legislation.
Over 140 musicians and artists have signed the letter that encourages members of the Texas legislature to oppose any anti-LGBT that comes before them.
Currently, the state is attempting to introduce a bill known as SB6, a piece of legislation similar to HB2 introduced in North Carolina last year.
It is currently sponsored by about 15 Republicans in the state.

In the letter, it states that the “creative community is watching Texas”, before praising its people and contribution to “music, art and culture”.
Continuing, the letter seems to suggest, like they have done in North Carolina, many artists would boycott the state if any anti-LGBT legislation was introduced.
“We are also deeply troubled by the current legislation that would target the LGBTQ community in Texas,” it read.
“It is up to you whether these bills will become law and we are watching. It is up to us to commit to doing everything within our power to make sure all of our fans, crews and fellow artists feel safe and welcome, wherever we go.”
The letter is signed by a number of notable celebrities, including Ariana Grande, Sia, Jennifer Lawrence, recent Bafta winner Emma Stone and Mark Ronson.
Recently, the SuperBowl threatened to move the contest out of Texas if it introduced anti-LGBT legislation, which the Governor mocked.
