GaGa Talks Target

GaGa Talks Target

Some people haven't been happy with the idea of Lady GaGa setting up a partnership with Target to release an exclusive version of her new upcoming album because of the shizz that went down last year with political donations.

Well, the GaGa herself is now talking about it!!

Here's what she has to say:

"That discussion was one of the most intense conversations I've ever had in a business meeting. Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they've made in the past…our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they've made supporting those groups."

Um, that sounds like a positive intention to us, not that she's supporting the fact that their political donations went to an anti-gay activists.

Now, it is a little disappointing that Target gives away so much money (weekly, even) and only a small portion of it is going to the LGBT community (less than 2%), but at least it's a start.

The company says it has "earmarked" almost half a million dollars for the community, which will absolutely be appreciated!

We also brought up that Target has now appointed a new political committee to be more "thoughtful" with their donations, though this doesn't guarantee that money can't end up being donated to future candidates that sadly have an anti-gay history.

The committee, though, is now in place to make sure those decisions aren't made recklessly.

Plus, the GaGa partnership seems to hinge on them not going that route, and she will DEF hear about it from her fans if things don't go smoothly!

This is the right direction, though!

Equality is glad to have you on its side, bb!

What do U think about this??

    ALL I READ WAS "BLAH BLAH BLAH, I'M A DIRTY TRAMP"
    GET YOUR FUCKING HEAD OUT OF GAGA'S ASS.



  2. 2

    EEEK! She does not have a face for close-ups.



  3. 3

    Definitely a step in the right direction. Kudo's to Target and Ga Ga.



  4. 4

    I AM SHOCKED! WHEN DID LADY GAGA START DRESSING LIKE SHANGELA FROM RUPAULS DRAG RACE EPISODE 4? HER AT WAS A FASHION RIPOFF! SAD!



  5. 5

    She said in an earlier post/video that she is not in it for the money or fame. This kinda sounds like a money thing.

    Re: CaliCoyote – That is a wax figure… you people complain about Gaga/ perez 100% of the time and when he puts up something that proves against what all of your complaints are you just say something that in way off topic. How about everyone tries to be less RUDE!



  7. 7

    Screw you and your agenda! Try working at Target for shit money and then have this dirt back lay demands on sales and her Gay bullshit. Why doesn't she talk about the shit wages this company pays and then maybe talk about gay rights. FU and your gays rights because it doesn't pay the bills Ms. Gaga!



  8. 8

    that's a picture of her wax figure.



  9. 9

    She needs to do something about that nose… she looks like a camel!



  10. 10

    Re: PalmSprings – people are starving and you approve of money going to gays.

    suck it.



  11. 11

    Way to go Lady Gaga. At least for Target it's a start! Time will tell.



  12. 12

    Funny how Phaggez was all "hush hush" about the tranny's partnership with Target until now. HYPOCRITE! THe only reason the tranny made this statement was because she was exposed as a money hungry fraud.



  13. 13

    Well I'm gay so I wonder if that makes me part of this so called "community" and if so then how do I get my share of that $500,000??
    I also wonder why Target will be giving the "LGBT Community" $500,000. What is the reason??

    Also, I'm so sick of this attention whore GaGa. I love her other songs but her new one sucks. I hate that she's encouraging boys/men to "be a queen".



  14. 14

    It doesn't make me any difference what Target does with their money. They aren't giving it to me unfortunatly so I don't care. I still can't stand Gagme she's a nasty looking freak who copies more talented singers music.



  15. 15

    um, LGBT's aren't deprived of food, shelter, or dying of a pandemic (unless you count aids), and aids isn't limited to just gay people, so this is just all stupid. i like her aids relief, but gays don't need money. sorry.



  16. 16

    i prefer feminazi advocates, think of early ninties ru486 (today is worse), gay hiring and title IX…target hired gays, served customers with next day pregnancy elimination pills



  17. 17

    Target is a great store. I enjoy their Up and Up products.



  18. 18

    One fuckin butt ugly chick! BARF



  19. 19

    Target, like any company, has the right to disperse their money however they see fit. Everyone in this country has the same right and no one should have to apologize or make reparations for supporting whatever organization(s) they so choose.

    I personally am in support of the gay community, but I do find it a bit disconcerting how it seems that many voices of the community (Perez, for one) are all about freedom of speech/choice and equality…until someone disagrees with them.

    If it goes one way, it should go the other. Just like the LGBT community has the right to support whatever organizations they want without ramification, so does Target.



  20. 20

    I get what she is trying to do but who the HELL does she think she is demanding a company to donate to a specific charity? She needs to sit the hell down



  21. 21

    Um, why do gays need money? I'm confused here……



  22. 22

    this is one of her wax firgure you dumn asses !!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  23. Kakia says – reply to this


    23

    She looks so old. I can't believe she's so much younger than me. Does this mean I can start shopping at Target again?



  24. 24

    Re: laurenanney – Yeah, actually there are many LBGT people, mainly adolescents and young adults, who are in need of food and shelter. I'm not saying that all young gays are in need of help, but there are many who are kicked out of their homes and have nowhere to go. So, yes, the LBGT community could use some of that money for shelters and support groups.



  25. 25

    Right. This intense meeting came right after all the outrage on the internet about her affiliation with them, not before she agreed to the deal. Who is she fooling.



  26. 26

    oh, now you get to dictate percentages. fuck you



  27. 27

    Since when did Target owe the LGBT community anything. If anyone feels wronged about Target's money handling, don't shop there. This is ridiculous.



  28. 28

    I believe her record label will make the decision on who distributes and sells their music. Shouldn't she be having this conversation with her label? Free media…Thanks Perez! - signed Gaga's label and Targets PR department

  29. terp says – reply to this


    29

    Such an ass, any other person pulled this move u would be bashing the hell out of them. Gaga does not give a shit about gay people, she is playing them like a fiddle to help herself



  30. 30

    She sold out. She'll do anything for money.



  31. 31

    Target is donating 2% of their charity money to 2% of the population… Seems fair to me. The LGBT already have a disproportionate amount of influence on power. It is ridiculous for you to continue to criticize target for giving money to a person who had traditional marriage as ONE part of his campaign platform. Target has never come out opposing homosexuality, or homosexual rights. Perhaps they agreed with the other issues that the politician stood for. Totally absurd.



  32. 32

    Re: Jayyyy – There are thousands of gay teens who have been kicked out of their home fore being gay. They aren't welcomed into many shelters because they are private/religious owned. That money will go to helping LGBT people without homes, it will go to marches, and to support politicians who support equal rights for ALL. It really is a shame that you don't know the struggles that gay people go through.



  33. 33

    Oh please. I hope you don't believe that Target actually intends to keep what they say. I'm sure they would say a lot of things to be the one to sell a special edition of GaGa's album.

    Re: MooMooMario – mr. deeds quote FTW!



  35. 35

    This article is just pure BULLSH*T… He never mentioned any of the drama until today but only because he had some good to say with it… If Gaga was the advocate she says she is she wouldn't have worked with Target to begin with and gave a more gay friendly company the deal… Like some said earlier if it was anyone else he would have bashing their decision… what a joke! … I am getting tired of perez and his gaga agenda…

  36. IVIV says – reply to this

    Re: Blondie100 – her fans, unfortunately lol but lucky for her, now she gets to take the credit for Target "changing their ways" and "redeem the mistakes they've made" but if she really gave a shit she would have spoke out before the deal like you said, not after once everyone made a deal about it. As long as she gets paid and comes up roses, she could give a shit. How long has it been since she made the deal and announced her partnership with Target? and she just now makes this statement? she's saving face



  37. 37

    Target gives money for schools, it provides long term housing for families of St. Jude hospital, the United Way, the Salvation Army (who will help anyone in need) and his heavily involved in disaster relief. You are however upset that they are not giving more to the lesbians, the homosexuals, the bisexual people and the transvestites.

    Alrighty then. Lets let the sick kids die, so they can build a 3rd washroom for the "transgender" person who believes we should have a 3rd sex.

    Good grief Perez, I know you are gay, but it doesn't make you special. Oddly, the people who feel that they are not treated fairly, end up feeling like they should be treated better than anyone else.

    There are enough employeed gays to support other gays. Lets all support those who can't afford to support themselves, to make life better for ALL children and get rid of things like cancer (which by the way, LGTB all suffer from)



  38. 38

    First off, Target was allowed to do what they wanted with their money, whether or not people agree with it. Same goes to anyone, for any cause. Second — it REALLY bugs me that she's making them give LGBT money if they want her partnership. If it was something like AIDS, ok, that's a good cause. But JUST to promote homosexuality? Really? It'd be much better if they did use that money for AIDS, starving people all over the world, anything that actually HELPS people in great need, really. This whole post sounded so stupid.



  39. 39

    OH MY GOD!! This is why I can't stand her!!! She acts like she's responsible for everything!! SO. OVER. HER.

    What at phony Lady Caca is. If she really cared, she would have a list of demands for Perez, the biggest bully of them all. Where was Caca when Perez used a gay slur at will.i.am or tried to bring down other artists to make her famous?



  44. 44

    Where are her list of demands for you?



  45. 45

    How selfish can you people be? Most of you complaining about money and wages are probably straight and have all of your equals rights but gays don't and its time that they do! If you don't make enough get a different fucking job. If your starving GET a job.



  46. 46

    SHEEEEE ISSSSS SOOOOO ANNOYINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG



  47. 47

    Britney won the Billboard Poll. Theres proof for you perez. Take it and learn from it. Grow from love.



  48. 48

    Meh. She's a sellout. Hey, it happens. She got a taste of the good life, and now needs the funds to maintain it. They all adopt that whole "say one thing then do another" protocol for conducting business. She only gives a shit about the green now, which just makes her human.



  49. 49

    Ugh, enough. Please? I won't hold my breath.



  50. 50

    I have been trying to like this girl.But this wannabe edgy artist has one of the hugest egos ever!!!Its really disgusting.



  51. 51

    Re: catlover – Yes but to only give it to the LGBT community is stupid.Its like giving black people money just because there black.Its just biased and ignorant…..Helloooooooooo last time i checked there are homeless people in the streets???Dont you think that money could go to them ?



  52. 52

    She needs gays because she knows most of them will fall into her plan…….She needs albums sales and she need to grab hold of those 15 minutes before there up.Seriously Born this way??? Doesn't anybody know shes only doing this for $.If she loved the gays so much dont you think her first album would of been filled with music targeted to gays? But actually there wasnt,so now she needs to cash in as much as she can.



  53. 53

    Is that like the email from madonna?



  54. 54

    Mr Gaga is really a guy…this isn't a joke. When is he going to come out and when are you guys going to open your eyes to this..

  55. china says – reply to this


    55

    tranny caca saves the world by stuffing her pockets full of money. excuse me, i have to throw up…



  56. 56

    Ok Im officially over her. The reason I still come here is cause I enjoy reading celeb-news, but really, this ass-kissing of Gaga has gone too far. You never write one negative thing about her all you do is turning it to something positive. Its too much and it makes me GAG.
    If you want people to like her better by posting all these ass-kissing posts about her you are way off cause I used to like Lady Gaga but now I cant even look at her face without feeling sick. Much thanks to this site. Yuck…



  57. 57

    thats great will do well when she falls from grace and ends up working there with perez..
    at least shes doing something positive with her fame not like all the other celeblosers rehabing in and out and being self absorbed



  58. 58

    Re: Flossy Love Prezzers – Amen..I was waiting for someone to refrence that..Im sure this "intense business meeting" never really took place. Gaga is nothing more then a spoiled brat with a good team.



  59. 59

    WHY THE HELL WOULD TARGET GIVE MONEY TO THE L&G'S? THEY ARE NOT STARVING OR HUNGRY OR SICK OR HOMELSS OR ON AN ORGAN DONER WAITING LIST? A LEZ OR A GAY CAN BE IN ONE OF THE ABOVE AND RECEIVE THE BENEFIT OF THAT CHARITY BUT TO SUGGEST THAT TARGET SHOULD GIVE MORE BECAUSE OF THEIR LIFESTYLE CHOICES IS BIZZARE AND SICK AND THAT IS WHY YOU WILL ALWAYS BATTLE FOR EQUALITY BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS WANT MORE. HAVE A LITTLE DIGNITY AND FIGHT YOUR OWN BATTLES.



  60. 60

    Lady GaGa is stupid. Her outrageous "look at me!" wardrobe and hair are stupid. That egg she "arrived in" at the Grammy's is stupid. The people dressed like freaks that carried her egg IN to the Grammy's are stupid.
    And this crap that she's requiring of Target is stupid. Major corporations and retailers should not be places of political and social agendas, nor should they be a place for a celebrities social agenda.

    I wish Lady GaGa would GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  61. 61

    Bu-bu-bu-butter face, bu-bu-butter face.



  62. 62

    Lmaooo now you mention this? Lolol hypocrite. Biased Monsters> Little Monsters



  63. 63

    you know. she'd probably have a lot more fans, me included, if you weren't such a fan….maybe you should stop kissing her ass…cuz every time you kiss her ass, i lose respect for her. ride someone else's coattails for a bit.



  64. 64

    Re: becaireful

    Billboard poll.. proof? HAHAHAHA
    sister please.
    Irrelevant poll is fucking irrelevant. Gaga DOMINATE the charts. Britney didn't. THAT'S PROOF. Fucking retard. A poll is uniquely dependant on who goes to the site and votes. Get educated.
