GaGa Imagines Equality For All!

| Filed under: Lady GaGa

Lady GaGa performed at HRC's big dinner on Saturday night before the National Equality March in D.C. on Sunday.

She took to the stage to give a speech about the importance of treating everyone the same - legally - and she also performed her own version of John Lennon's legendary Imagine.

  10. 10

    GaGa for the Gays!!!! LOVE IT!!!

  11. 11

    the way you obsess over lady gaga is worrying

  12. 12

    it doesnt make sense to say:
    "imagine theres no heaven,
    only matthew in the sky"
    she shouldnt try to change a perfect song!

  13. 13

    ugg she ruined it

  14. 14

    Loved it! Lady GaGa is AMAZING!!!
    And I HATE being so catty,
    But what is up with that really bad wig??
    It seriously looked one of those Halloween wigs. :(

  15. 15

    SHES SO INSPIRATIONAL! If everyone could voice their opinion this way, we'd all be equal by now. People need to listen up! EQUAL LOVE FOR ALL!!!

    Imagine there's no Poker Face
    It's easy if you try
    No hell of Lady GaGa
    Above us only sky.

  21. 21

    Equal civil rights for all.
    No exceptions, all.
    Every person in America;
    none better, none lesser
    but equal-

  22. 22

    The Princess and Queen of Pop never ceases to amaze. She's fabulous, and she's really worthy of her titles. Bow down, everyone!

  23. 23

    interesting choice of song considering lennon was allegedly a closeted homosexual and homophobe

  24. 24

    Aw that was beautiful.. I love that song

  25. 25

    John's ear's are burning and Barack hates homos.

    I really like Lady Gaga. Love the message that she is spreading. HOWEVER, I'm sorry but NO ONE should touch that song. The message that she wants to send is already within the song. Why change the lyrics just to have it blatantly say what it already says? Good performance though, she's sounds great live.

  28. 28

    I thought Lady GaGa was supposed to be creative. Then she covered "Imagine", the most played-out song ever. Well, I guess this airplane's crashed into the skyscraper. Time to bail.

  29. 29

    What, the 'princess' now thinks she can go and rape the legend like that? Her head is getting bigger and bigger. Soon it will explode, and Perez will be making bucks on 'Save Gaga' t-shirts…

  30. 30

    Your obsession is getting old, Perez soo not funny anymore. She is very overrated.

  31. 31

    i love love love her new look

  32. china says – reply to this


    yeah, change john lennons lyrics. but maybe learn singing before.
    what a troll.

  33. 33

    I like Madonnas' version of Imagine much better, CaCa sucks.
    Try again dear.

  34. 34

    Who does she think she is to cover this song?

  35. 35

    I meant "SHE sounds great live"

  36. 36

    I think it was a good message and the ideal song for it!

  37. 37

    Imagine there's no….um..loser like this fucking skank.

    Madonna covered Imagine first for the Tsunami benefit and then during her 2004 tour. GaGa may be the Princess but don't ever forget Madonna is the Queen of Pop.
    It should be noted this is one of the most covered songs ever written and has been recorded or played live by a veritable who's who of A-list singers.
    I give GaGa lots of credit for being present at the HRC dinner and lending her celebrity voice to "the cause" (the cynic in me would point out she knows where her bread is buttered, as "Her Gays" represent a major percentage of her fans). I hope some good comes out of all of this.

    Re: valtwiggy
    but it contradicts itself.

  41. ap076 says – reply to this


    I wonder why Perez was absent from such an important. Could it be he is a nobody when it comes to the gay community? Or perhaps it is because credible Gay rights organizations distance themselves from a figure that are ashamed of? The task force, HRC and GlAAD not feeling you perez?

  42. 42

    this is a VERY bad performance. i really hate her version too, eewwww poor Lennon, someone with no talent of their own, had to steal his song to make their own.. he must be spinning in his grave right about now!!

  43. 43

    brought me to tears

  44. beeee says – reply to this


    this made my cry! I seriously fall more in love with gaga every day i think… lol

  45. 45

    Fuck her. She doesn't need to ruin John Lennon's amazing song. Just say your piece and leave his music alone! Avril Lavine already raped this song, but at least she did it to raise funds for Darfur refugees. I agree with what LGG is saying, but it's super un- necessary to use his music. I feel the same way about people covering Queen. It shouldn't happen ever.

  46. 46

    Re: ChelleBelle – Totally agree that the message is within the original song by John Lennon.
    But her heart was in the right place.

  47. 47

    How Madonna of her.

  48. 48

    It's official. I really fucking hate this talentless, ex stripper.

  49. 49

    Re: ap076 – - The gay community has had the good sense to distance itself from the hatemonger. GLAAD castigated him for use of the profane homophobic slur when Mario screamed "You're not a f***ing artist! You're a f***ing f**got!" at Will.I.Am.

  50. 50

    OK why is it when celebs get to a certian point in thier popularity, they think anyone wants to hear ANYTHING they have to say. Stupid! And she sounded horrible. An injustice to John.

  51. 51

    Gaga singing Lennon. Blasphemy!

  52. 52

    im sick of cookie cutter pop stars, so the fact she is ugly is not so bad (I think she'd have been a cookie cutter if she'd had the looks - all this posing is overcompensation). Im offended by her PRETENSIOUS claim to being original, and the fact that she has an untrained voice (evident when she cant hold a note, or has a weak transition). There's got to be something better, different, creative, exciting out there… Its all so fukken boring… Papparazzi? yeah right…. you wish. Its embarrassing. Stop slogging her, perez.

    PS: ever notice the cartoon versions of perez are much cuter than his rl pics?

  53. 53

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no! A THOUSAND TIMES NO! John Lennon would not have liked Lady GaGa. I think he would have seen through her pretentious bullshit. John spouted off nonsense because he wanted to make music. She spouts off nonsense just to do it and make a name for herself. This was the nail in the coffin for me. I was on the fence about her. I didn't like her, but I thought she was cool, but now that she even thought about redoing Imagine just makes me genuinely dislike her.

  54. 54

    Re: china – OH shut the hell up.

  55. 55

    Re: Trancelike – Don't call her a loser when your the bitch typing useless garbage on a fucking computer.

  56. 56

    Re: ap076 – Sadly, nobody knows that Madonna person you're talking about and nobody cares about that forgotten/forgettable performance you're talking about. This is the Golden Age of the Reign of the Haus of GaGa. Stop riding on the coattails of GaGa, the only Princess and Queen of Pop.

  57. 57

    She's got her head in the right place, I tip my hat.

    I'll bet money Britney couldn't pull something like that off.

  58. 58

    Matthew in the sky? how obvious and annoying that she would think that adopting the image of matthew shepard would somehow include or endear her to the gay cause. a struggle that has been going on for decades before she turned to us for stardom. stick to pop music and wigs. I'm insulted.

  59. 59

    So where was Madonna? All her equality talk and she is nowhere to be seen or heard from on this issue..

  60. 60

    Yuk. How dare this moron butcher such a classic song. Sickening.

  61. 61

    Imagine: Self described by Lennon as his “communist manifesto” - let's be clear what equality is. It's using the courts and the justice system to shove down our throats homosexual marriage - which 67% of Americans
    have no interest in and we have 45 states banning gay marriage -
    it will be 44 when MAINE strikes down homosexual marriage on November 3rd.

    Go Maine. Civil unions and not a single thing more. One man + one woman - that is a marriage.

    Two homosexuals - that is a same sex union - never to be considered anything more.

    Re: ap076
    "Madonna covered Imagine first for the Tsunami benefit and then during her 2004 tour."
    Really? Madonna covered it first? I did not know that. You do know "Imagine" was released in 1971, and is one of the most played out and covered songs ever? Diana Ross covered it in 1973. I guess Madonna was just copying her, Eva Cassidy, Joan Baez, and the hundreds of other artists that performed it long before she did in 2004.

  63. 63

    Re: dsdsfsd – Wow, get educated. matthew shepard. One of THE most devestating deaths of our time. Especially for the gay community. Where the heck have you been?

  64. 64

    Way to ruin a classic, Gagg Gagg.

  65. 65

    honestly, not that great of performance…

    LOVE HER!! JUST SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TIRED OF you up her a$$hole!!!!!!!!!!!!

  68. 68

    Re: You.Eff.Oh
    sky= synonym for heaven
    DUH!!! its a contradiction.
    she should have left the song the way the genius john lennon intended.

  69. 69


  70. 70

    i think some of you are missing the point here. it was not about how well she sang the song, it was about the message behind it.


  71. 71

    I don't think she ruined it, that's a little melodramatic…people cover Imagine all the time. I think the glasses looked awful, and I love that she added Matthew in there, good for her.

  72. 72

    I wish everyone could be equal too … why can't people just like everyone???? no matter your race income age …. and I don't think everyone should become friends automatically ………but if you like someone just based on their personality then ……… why not? chemistry is chemistry

  73. 73

    great cause.
    but no one but john lennon can do this song,
    she should stick to other motivational songs please..

    touhing.i love it

  75. 75

    wow, that was bad, I like gaga but that was terrible.

  76. 76

    she is amzing!!!!!!!!!!!I love you Gaga

  77. 77

    Why would she say there is no heaven? How comforting to know that Matthew is "in the sky." When people say someone is "in the sky," they mean in heaven!!
    Ugh, I can't stand her fake persona! BE REAL… not this person you think makes you popular! IT DOESN'T!! I don't think you're artistic, I don't think you're creative… I think you're a fame-whore willing to do anything for attention!! Ring a bell, Perez?

  78. 78

    To me she's kaka, or gag a. She's an embarrassment to the Italian community. Puke! Youre no Madonna KAKA get lost.

  79. 79

    AMAZING I love Lady gaga! : )

  80. 80

    Ok..just to make sure it was not just me, I had my sister and her friends listen to this, and I am still trying to peel them off the floor, where they cannot get up because of a serious case of freaking laughter. I mean really she cannot even carry a tune. I give her another month before no one will even know who she is anymore.

  81. 81

    oh COME ON, perez, i know you worship Lady GaGa, but Patricia Clarkson's speech was by FAR more important.

  82. 82

    Regardless of how you feel about Gaga and her performance, the message was beautiful.

    I personally adore the Lady and her message!

  83. 83

    she said the matthew thing in reference to matthew sheppard, who was killed because he was gay.

  84. 84

    Re: alexaaa911 – Of course she's no Madonna. Madonna is a washed-out out, forgotten failure. GaGa is the Princess and Queen of Pop.

  85. 85

    I'm sorry but I HATE lady gaga.

    It really is a travesty the direction that music is going nowadays.

    The fact that everyone is comparing HER to MADONNA??

    Some moron who dresses in ridiculous outfits and sings about poker and the paparazzi??

    And dont even get me STARTED on her covering the legendary John Lennon's Imagine.

    She should stick to what she's good at; Dressing like a clown and getting the fuck out of the music business.

    And as far as everyone else goes….

    What the hell happened to loving music for its LYRICS??

    What happened to music actually MEANING something, not having all these corporate bastards helping you or just completely writing the songs for you??

    This really just makes me so sad.

  86. 86

    SHUT UP ABOUT GUY GUY PEREZ. no one cares. she and her "gay tour" can go fuck themselves

  87. 87

    gay is wrong and selfish, and this chick needs to hang herself, or i will help her..

  88. 88

    nope, she failed at covering this. no one should try to cover someone with talent.

  89. 89

    Interesting that Perez always lists her as GaGa (2 capital Gs), even though her own web site (which is basically a vehicle for her to shill a variety of products and services) lists her as Gaga (only the first G is capitalized). Guess he doesn't know her as well as he thinks.

  90. 90

    Gaga is more than amazing. she has a beautiful soul and she is so giving. I LOVE YOU GAGA!!

  91. 91

    Holy shit no! I never thought I would hear a version of Imagine worse than David Archuleta's but this trumps all the bad performances. How is it possible that such a good song can be allowed to be played by such a terrible artist?

  92. 92

    She is so inspiring! I luv her!!!

  93. 93

    \y my doesn't she think she is important. She is so smug. Isn't she just some broad from New Jersey? All the makeup and wigs can't make her beautiful.

  94. 94

    keyword: "imagines" imagine all you want it doesn't make a fucking difference, keep living the dream

  95. 95

    how touching. i actually cried.

  96. 96

    i like gaga but you're seriously over exposing her. may as well call this site, gagahilton.

  97. 97

    there are much worse covers of this song; at least she sang it and played the piano!
    and you guys that think you understand the song; clearly you dont

  98. 98

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – He won't. He promised to close Gitmo the day he took office. Eight months later it's still open.

  99. 99

    SHE SUCKS! She totally ruined the song! Don't take a perfectly good song and change the words and ruin it. I can't stand this woman!

  100. 100

    Re: ap076 – Don't forget Perez's comments to Will.I.Am. GLADD doesn't want anything to do with homophobes, even if they are gay themselves.
