    hehe, does anyone really think she genuinely gives a fuck about the gays and lesbians?

  2. 2

    I'm sure the U.S. Military cares what Lady Gaga has to say about it. lol However, those in the military (family members our ours included) appreciate anyone who takes a stand against this injustice. It served as a good stepping stone during the Clinton era to allow gays a safe way into the military, but good men and women are losing their jobs because of their sexual preference, often because someone shoves them out of the closet to their superiors. It's wrong, and no one should fear losing their job over their sexual preference, race, color, religion, etc…

    just wracking her brains for more possible ways to wolf in money…

  4. 4

    She or is that a he?… needs a good helping of STFU!!!

  5. 5

    It was a decent speech. I'm glad she held the rally though

  6. 6

    I think it's great that so many people are with Gaga supporting gay rights, but I WONDER… how many of them supported gay rights BEFORE she was outspoken about it? Like, were you active in the gay community BEFORE she became this "messiah" character?

  7. 7

    this woman is damn poser. i don't take her seriously. this bitch just wants more fans that's why she's getting involved in this movement.

  8. 8

    Im from Canada.. and we allow gays in our Military, we allow gay marrage.. The USA wants to be the BEST country in the world but they treat some americans like this WOW comon USA get your shit together.. Your embarrising us Canadian..

    GAGA for president!!

  9. 9

    I now you haters gonna say shit about this videos, but this is not all about gaga. its about a very importont case ho happen in america now, its over 14000 ho can not go to the military because they gay or lesbian, because the straight dont like it !! that WRONG !! we want and gaga want the law "dont ask dont tell" out of the law. and we are lucky gaga helping us get rid of that shit :D so this time think on something odder then talking shit about this video !! and if you hate gaga, why are you watching XD some people are idiots -.-

    Uh…every time her lips move…I don't know…you just expect stupid shit to come out. I mean…Lady GagGag is the best orator for this cause? Really? Was Gilbert Gottfried busy? Because…you could do SOOOOO much better. You know…with somebody could actually intelligently debate the issue….somebody NOT on cocaine…

    I am getting so sick of her. As a gay I fell really offended about Gaga ussing gays to sell records.

  13. 13


  14. 14

    OH please!!! the gay thing…homegirl when starting out in NYC…never hit the gay clubs…all of sudden she's the new gay ICON…please!!!!

  15. 15

    well goolllleee… if Lady Gaga says it then I better start believing it…. I say join and we will put you all on the front lines.

  16. 16

    Equality. Duh.

  17. MJ85 says – reply to this


    It was great to have her here in Maine! I hope it makes a difference!

  18. 18

    Wow, truly inspirational Powerfully delivered with intelligence and sincerity. Gaga is a rare star cause she stands up to be counted for the views she passionately believes in. Cynics may say she does this to sell records - well why then is nobody else? Her work schedule is busy beyond most peoples comprehension - for her to take the time out to thoughtfully compose her message( then deliver it personally) says a lot about the lady, her values and compassion. If I was stuck in trenches, fighting for my life then Gaga would be my ideal comrade - cause she got one big pair of balls and the guts to use them. The Gay's may love Gaga but so should all free thinking people everywhere.

  19. 19

    LOVE LOOOOVE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hater Be Hatin. But Shes Here To stay.

  20. 20

    Re: albes – #12 Thank you

  21. 21

    its hard to take her seriously..when she looks like a goofball.

  22. 22

    Re: albes – Albes, I'm not sure how old you are or your knowledge of gay history, but i can assure you that without brave people who stand up for rights (like Gaga)you would have none of the freedoms you maybe take for granted now. Gay, Black, Women's rights did not come with out people who were prepared to stand up and be counted - history has taught us that. Gaga does not need the gays to sell records(enough straight people buy them too) - except she has a platform to express her views that very few in the world do and she is using it to deliver basic human rights.

  23. 23

    You have got to be kidding me. Anyone who follows her is absolutely brainless. Hilarious.

  24. 24


  25. 25

    Unless you served in the military keep your Fn mouth shut. Don't ask don't tell is to protect the gays and lesbians from herassment.

  26. 26

    i love this woman. see u in atx bitch!!!!

  27. 27

    i love this woman. see u in the atx bitch!!!!

  28. 28

    Equality in this world doesn't exist.
    People need to push for Fair Treatment.
    If you sat down and genuinely thought about Equality, it wouldn't be such a good thing.
    But being treated fairly in accord with circumstances and taking into account our differences, well… that'd be Amazing.
    Besides this is just a way for her to rack in some more fans and earn a few extra bucks.
    This should be decided by Service Members ONLY!

  29. 29

    Lady gaga is exploiting the gay community. she's doing this for her own benefits. what she's doing it's not coming from an honest place. Her political agenda is self serving.

  30. IVIV says – reply to this


    where'd the accent go? hahaha

  31. barny says – reply to this


    This ugly bitch is the biggest publicity whore any where.Everything she does is to get publicity.

  32. 32

    I live in Portland, Maine and saw this address. I am a straight female, married and mother of three. This matter is disgusting and needs to be addressed and if it takes the celebrity of Lady Gaga to bring the needed attention to this matter…so be it. Her emotions and words seem to be real and she seems truly touched by the stories of these people and she took the time out of her life to be here today. XOXO

  33. 33

    She will do and say anything for attention. I think she just wants to kiss gay asses because she wants gay fans to consider her an icon. She is getting on my nerves being all self-righteous. And that meat dress was so unnecessary…as was her "reason" to wear it. She has no real problems and sounds bored and self-righteous, as are many 20 something year olds.
    By the time she's 33 she won't care and nobody will care about her.

  34. 34

    I do not know what someone's sexual preference has to do with their ability to serve their country. I believe everyone should be able to be a patriot!!

  35. 35

    I don't like how she labels republicans as homophobic. I'm generally conservative (and no, that doesn't mean that I'm always for the republican candidate) but I fully support gay rights. I think everyone should be treated equally, it's in our constitution. But other than the labels, I thought her speech was well written and true.

  36. 36

    That was a truly inspirational speech it gave me chills, it was said so beautifully!! Lady Gaga is a true activist for gay rights and stands up for what she believes in. You go Lady GAGA!!!!!!

  37. 37

    Re: jsqtsa – Uh…. yes I do why would she take time out of her day to advocate for gay rights if she "doesn't give a fuck."

  38. 38

    Think about it for a second…it takes a 20 something year old pop star who looks as though she raided a childs dress up trunk rallying in order for Americans to be interested in their own policies?? Seriously?? Gaga should be president..that seems to be the direction America is taking…how unbelievably sad.

  39. 39

    oh, come on I hope that right about now people really realist that she doesn't really care about the gays that she's really doing this for publicity. so that people could name her the hero of century. bullshit. she's full of fakeness nothing about her is real and I do mean nothing. so get over yourself mario.

  40. 40

    god i wish this bitch would shut the fuck up about shit she knows absolutely NOTHING about. im surprised more gays dont realize she is just using them to sell records; SHE DOESNT ACTUALLY GIVE A SHIT ABOUT ANY OF YOU.

  41. 41

    It doesn't matter who's concerned by what's she's saying. It doesn't matter what her motives are here, despite the fact that she, more than obviously, DOES care about the members of the GBLT community in her country, in my opinion. What is important is that she's taking a stand. Lady Gaga has proven herself to be one of, if not the, hardest working people in her industry. She could be out promoting her album or a club or some kind of alcohol, but instead, she's promoting equality. She's taking time from her chaotic schedule to take a stand for something she clearly feels needs attention. Has she wasted her time on things that aren't important to her before? Nope! And in fact, that is what I understand to be the platform for what she does. So what if she gets a few more people on board with her work? Does she not deserve it? Is what she said untrue? Hardly. She spoke the truth with eloquence and with heart. To all you haters that have been leaving snide remarks: If you think she's full of shit, why'd you watch? No one asked you to comment and quite frankly, if you have nothing more intelligent to say than "she's a poser" or "she's fishing for support," keep it to yourself. You look FOOLISH. Call me whatever you will, for like a grains of salt I take you.

  42. 42

    good for her, I love Lady Gaga.

    he everone check out my site no spaceses w w w. jorge arreola . weebly .com

    I'm all about the cause but find a better role model. This slut banged my roommate NYE and didnt even shower after her concert. Smelled like true trash. It's then she told him she was going to save the world with her music. How about you come back to reality and take a fucking shower. BTW She likes it rough. Just like her face. Rough.

  44. 44

    I'm running out to buy her cd right now because of this

  45. 45

    Um, last time I checked, I'm pretty fucking sure she doesn't need to "exploit" the gay community to sell more records or make more money. She's the biggest pop star in the country right now and is super successful after only two years. Give the girl a break, all you people just look for a way to bring successful people down. You don't like it, don't listen to her. Fuck off: and while your "off" try working on widening the narrow paths in your brains assholes.

  46. 46

    ehh - she has some points but there is other layers to it. Not so simple and cut and dried. There are changes that need to be made but the MILITARY should make those decisions - not pop stars and joe public. Joe Public should not be the ones deciding on when and how it should be done. BTW DADT is not a law. It is a policy.

  47. 47

    For ALL the people hating on LADY GAGA…. you sit behind your computer and complain but are you doing anything to fight/stand up for DADT?? probably not. BEFORE YOU SHARE YOUR STUPID OPINIONS THAT HAVE NO MERIT, how about you take your energy and try to do something to solve DADT.. your bitching does nothing but make you look rediculous.

  48. 48

    this was a terrible speech.

  49. 49

    She doesn't read the monitor very well ….

    I am a VETERAN and would like to say to Ms Stefan Whatever Freak Show - WHO The hell are YOU to tell someone to GO HOME when they have VOLUNTEERED their life and time to defend your sorry azz???!!! I personally don't care what anyones sexual orientation is, but mind you I saw a good deal of "flirting" almost to the point of harassment from gay men and women towards heterosexual m/w during my enlistment. My husband had a 1st Class whistle at him numerous times when preparing to run during his lunch break. ~ big thing here, when you sign your enlistment papers you swear that you are not a homosexual and nor have you ever engaged in any homosexual activity. So "DADT" is a problem? You lie to enlist, you breach your contract. Simple as that. Same with any other action that goes against the UCMJ. You. Are. Out.
    This meat wearing, freak that thinks she has God needs to sign up and do her time like the rest of us who VOLUNTEERED then she might have a right to say "send this one home". Send someone home because they are opposed to homosexuality? What about gays like Perez who think anyone who isn't gay is wrong? Would he get a pass because he's gay and someone disagrees with his ass?
    My rant here is about this "woman" make no mistake. If this offends anyone, my apologies. But that "speech" she gave was BULLSHIT!! (I'm sure this will probably be deleted as it is not PRO Gag!)

  51. 51

    Ahhh Gag-gag here in Maine. No wonder it seems like crap yesterday. Funny part is that there are people who think this skank really gives a crap about anyone gay. Now run out and buy her crappy cd since she supports you. sheep

  52. 52

    Re: EBYSUPREMACY – Yep, having served in the Marines I am standing up for DADT. BTW, "you look rediculous." Like your spelling?

  53. 53

    The gaga phenomenon is all an act. She is praying on the insecure, only to appear as an icon. Madonna did it, now she is. She really doesnt care about the things she claims to stand for. She will take on any cause to boost her record sales.

    The meat thing should prove that she really has no care in any cause whatsoever. I have no problem with her music, cause its something we have been needing in the scene, but her pretend love for her fans, is simply an act. And those that fall for it, need to lookat themselves and ask, what is it about me that I need to look up to someone like her.

  54. 54

    Re: x-koolazzmom-x – are you kidding me? "WHO The hell are YOU to tell someone to GO HOME when they have VOLUNTEERED their life and time to defend your sorry azz???!!!" did you even think that sentence through before you spewed it out? WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO SEND SOMEONE HOME WHO HAS VOLUNTEERED THEIR LIFE AND TIME TO DEFEND YOUR SORRY ASS BECAUSE THEY'RE GAY AND YOU'RE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH IT? take your own words to heart or risk looking like an ignorant right wing conservative and giving the others a bad name. it's so funny, i'm 100 percent straight, but i'd be completely comfortable around a lesbian or gay because i know they're not some sort of hormonal freak who only thinks about sex - they're just like you and i! the lgbt community shouldn't have to lie to serve all of YOUR sorry asses, especially when they don't even have all the rights you do in the first place! this is not the right place to waste my precious opinion but really, child, sit down!

  55. 55

    i just wrote a long comment Re: x-koolazzmom-x – defending gays in the military and it showed up and then disappeared. i don't know if it will reappear but if not i guess this means these comments are being filtered and not in the way you'd think. what gives, perez? is some right wing conservative nut filtering your comment sections to avoid controversy? lame.

  56. 56

    Re: sarahmargeurite – oops guess i was wrong, it showed back up.. disregard that last comment. ;)

  57. 57

    Love it! Love her! But, her stance just skirts around the issue. This is just a guess, but I think it's safe to assume that there are more straight soldiers than gay ones. And if the majority of the straight soldiers are homophobic (which should definitely not be tolerated), it would be counter-productive to send them home as the country would find itself with a serious deficiency of soldiers. All together, as nice as Gaga's idea is, it would be more productive to instead create and enforce sanctions for soldiers with the 'issue' and altogether try to build up morale and a compatibility with these soldiers.

    It's all in the mindset. Change the mindset: Solve the problem.

  58. 58

    It's not that lawmakers give two craps what SHE has to say, it's when the millions of voters who agree with her go to vote. The lawmakers care more about their seat in congress, so they will listen to the voters.

    Don't ask Don't tell does not protect gays in the military. It's saying, "don't be yourself….cause if you do and someone doesn't like it-you deserve what you get." THAT is bullshit.

    That being said, I didn't like all her little metaphors in the speech. If I have to hear about that God Dammed meat dress one more time….imma lose it!

  59. 59

    Re: xman66 – If you listen to her previous speeches about Gay rights, she's said herself that she was never brave enough to take a stand for what she believes in until she saw what was happening to her gay fans.
    I can't lie, I used to hate Lady GaGa, but lately, she's been growing on me.
    I definitely feel like she's being genuine at these rallies and when she talks about how she adores her fans.

    She wants to be a gay icon like Liza Minelli, Marilyn, Madonna, etc. It will be easy for the drag queens because she already has a manly face. Honestly, She is such a fame whore.

  64. albes says – reply to this


    Gaga is fucking exploiting the gays since they're her biggest market
    Before when she was just regular gaga she never mentioned anything about it but as soon as she hit it big she suddenly cares and wants to be this activist

    Yes she's exploiting the gays get over it

    just because she puts glasses on, has a natural hair color, and wears an american flag themed tie DOESNT mean people are going to take her seriously. if she wants to be taken seriously she should act this way ALL THE TIME.. im glad someone is trying to fight but one day of her dressing like a human isnt going change the world
