GaGa Dissolves Deal With Target Over Political Donations!

Well, at least she tried!

Although Lady GaGa caused a bit of controversy when she agreed to set up a partnership with Target, due to their past donations to anti-gay politicians, the singer publicly explained that it was part of a way for the company to make amends and work toward bettering their relationship with the LGBT community!

However, obviously the chain failed to do so, because we're hearing now that she dissolved the deal!

A source explains:

"She and Target didn't see eye to eye on Target's policy of political donations and how they affect the LGBT community."

Well, then we're glad that she got herself out of a situation that she clearly was not comfortable in!

It's very sad that Target couldn't realize what a serious statement they're making with certain political donations.

You did the right thing, Mother Monster, and we cannot commend you enough!

  1. 1

    Oh no, now Target is gonna go out of business!



  2. 2

    what about my preorder?!



  3. 3

    You forgot her full title, it's Mother DEMON Monster.



  4. 4

    the fact they hate homosexuals have anything to do with it?



  5. 5

    Yeah, she did the right thing. You should do something that doesn't feels right. But what about those who pre order the CD? I'm glad I didn't do it yet.



  6. 6

    they can donate to whoever they want to donate to just like she can do business with whoever she chooses - it's part of what you preach about mario, EQUALITY.



  7. 7

    Now I have more respect for Target. I'll be doing ALL my shopping there.
    Lady CaCa doth protest too much.
    .
    She's on Minute 12 of her 15 minutes of fame.



  8. 8

    The only uncomfortable situation was the backlash from the gays, let's not kid ourselves. She knew full well about target's history and did it anyway, for the money. But when the gay's got their panties in a wad, she realized she would lose money, and all the sudden grew a concience. Give me a fucking break, this tranny would suck hitlers dick for a buck.



  9. 9

    So let's bash Target because of this one thing and forget about the million upon millions of other donations they make around the world to help people and causes……..I am for LGBT, but Target does a lot of good around the world. If Lady Gaga doesn't want to do business with them, then that is her choice, but Target is still a great company.



  10. 10

    bullshit, she shuould nver done anything with them, FAKE BITCH



  11. 11

    Can someone please tell me what's going to happen to the people that already pre-ordered the exclusive deluxe edition that was only gonna be available at target??? I already ordered it! I just want my damn cd! Idc about Targets political affiliations but come on Gaga! I love you but you and your team fucked up!

    Re: April 20th – Agree



  13. 13

    gaga is serious

    GET LAID OR WATCH HOT EBONIES…FREE MEMBERSHIPS…THEPORNSPACE.NET



  14. 14

    Good, now I can walk through Target withough the fear of seeing her busted mule face on any of the products there. Thank you Target!



  15. 15

    No, what's very sad is the fact that Gaga still hasn't realized that she can't control what major corporations do. Target has NOTHING to make amends for! Why don't you mention the fact that they have a very strict "tolerance" policy? This policy applies to all races, people with handicaps, & all sexual orientations. They also make many other contributions, including to organizations that help the LGBT community. You make it sound as though it was HER decision to "dissolve" it, I believe it was the other way around. Also, pretty much every major corporation you can think of makes political donations to politicians/groups the LGBT has an issue with. She should check into some of the other companies she has endorsement deals with, I bet she would find the same thing.



  16. 16

    She is so full of it. She needs to stop thinking she is the second coming of Christ and everyone should do as she says. She knew exactly what she was doing when she the made the deal and the only reason she is pulling back now is because her fans didn't respond positive to it and she was afraid it would actually hurt her record sales. People are such hypocrites in this world. Lady Blah Blah needs to just go away.



  17. 17

    Here's the thing that Miss Political doesn't understand.
    All of these stores are in Middle America, which very VERY conservative and religious.
    In order to get permission/clearance to open their stores in certain communities, Target, Walmart and other stores like them, have to grease some politicians palm to get it done.
    .
    Lady CaCa ain't gonna find any company that hasn't made some kind of donation to some kind of organization that she doesn't like. So sell it on your website or out of the back of a bus.
    .
    Either way, I don't care.



  18. 18

    LMAO here, a grown man who calls someone younger mother monster.
    Really how pathetic can you be.
    About Gaga, you really think this is about donations ? she thinks she's god who can change people ? nah
    Think this is more likely about another despute they have.
    Money makes the world go round.

  19. Went says – reply to this

    Now, Perez, when will you stop promoting Target? You have featured them on your site several times. For all of you who hate Gaga, go fuck yourself. She is supporting the LGBT community and if you can't see that you are idiots.



  20. 20

    I think this whole thing was a publicity stunt on Gaga's part. If she felt this strongly about this in the BEGINNING why even consider a partnership with Target in the first place? Hmm? Now they won't bow to her demands and she is going to "punish" them by not giving them rights to exclusive content on her shitty album? Now she is trying to make herself look like some sort of martyr for the gay community? Please. Now she'll market those tracks on itunes or somewhere else and get a bigger payday. She's a fake and a phony. She will do anything to add some more zero's in her bank account.



  21. 21

    Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.



  22. 22

    She is such a farse…soooo over her and her condom clothes. Target will still be the best store around, long after that idiot's fame has worn off. I'll take a trip to Target any day over buying one of her cd's. I have lots of gay friends who feel the same way too!



  23. 23

    Re: Went – No your the fucking idiot. If you can't see that she is pandering to your gay ass just to get your money, then you deserve the shell game this bitch is playing on you.



  24. 24

    no big loss.



  25. 25

    WAIT! WHAT was going to be on this deluxe edition??? Bonus songs? If so, I WANT IT!!! She better send it on over to Best Buy or something!!!



  26. 26

    What Perez doesn’t mention: Target donates to the annual Twin Cities Gay Pride Festival every year. Target offers domestic partnership benefits.
    Learn the facts: Target DID NOT realize they were donating to an anti-gay marriage Politian! They were supporting the group that ran his TV ads because he was for “creating a positive environment for businesses”.
    They give $3 million to our communities every week- They made a $150,000 mistake one of those weeks. They wrote a letter of apology to its employees over the mistake of the donation. I think we can forgive Target, and have a little understanding that everyone makes mistakes, and be grateful that each of our mistakes do not make headlines.

    I knew I loved shopping at Target!! Recently, I decided to give my business and my money to companies that stand up for traditional family values such as Target, Chick-Fil-A, Hobby Lobby, Forever 21 and Whole Foods…just to name a few. I'm sick and tired of nobodies like Gaga trying to use their influence to demonize companies that stand up for morals and values and I'm shocked that people would listen to these clowns. I choose to follow God and no one else. I would rather spend eternity in heaven with God than burning in Hell with Gaga and Perez Hilton.



  28. 28

    Re: Went – im gay too dumbass and even i can see lady caca takes advantage of our community!!



  29. 29

    Wait so what about if we preordered the album from them????



  30. 30

    She truly has a face for radio. She needs to go away!



  31. 31

    Re: Wrenn – forever 21 makes clothing in sweatshops - hardly meets tradition family values……..



  32. 32

    ickynicky-Well stated. I live in Minnesota and Target is a great company and the propaganda and distortions that Perez and Gaga is pushing regarding this company is downright disgusting. Gaga is just a contrived freak whose career will quickly fade in 2011. There is so much better music out there like Adele,Mumford and Sons and Florence and the machine-and they don't even have to take their clothes off or use gimmicky costumes to sell their music.



  33. 33

    I'm openly gay and to be honest I don't give a shit about this. I will CONTINUE shopping at Target. They can donate to whoever the hell they want.

    As far as Lady GAGughh goes; this bitch is such a marketing genius. That's really all I can give her credit for. Gay peeps are being taken advantage of and manipulated and they don't see it….
    I can't wait for this girls 15 minutes to be up. so sick of herrrr.



  34. 34

    Re: yumba1 – adding to your list - sara bareilles, ingrid michaelson, corrine bailey rae and kate nash isn't too bad either.



  35. 35

    LOL She backtracked when the gay community called her out on her hypocrisy. She pretends like she was working on that all along. Wrong. They called her out. She scrambled and had meetings and realized she had to get out or lose face. Busted Gaga trying to rewrite history on how this went down.



  36. 36

    Legendary artists don't get this much lack of respect. xD Gaga to the left!



  37. 37

    LMAO the tranny only did this because of the HUGE backlash. She wouldn't have had any problem if nobody found out. She doesn't care about gays, but the money they give her.



  38. 38

    So…is Target going to refund the people who pre-ordered the Target Exclusive edition of her album? That's going to be an awkward e-mail to compose….

    Also, I wish she would have fought as hard to get her label to make amends for distributing the ridiculously-censored recordings of The Fame Monster. (They only released it uncensored in a digital format, and that wasn't until 2 months after the album's release. Australia was the only country that got a physical CD release in uncensored format.) Uncensored CD's should have been provided to fans in ALL countries. It would have meant a bit of negative press, but fans would have appreciated her even more if she had helped them out. Rule #1: Never screw over your fans.



  39. 39

    Good for Gaga!!!!



  40. 40

    AMAZING STORY! LONG LIVE LADY GAGA! JUST LIKE THERE ARE MANY OTHER CELEBRITIES THAT STAND UP FOR OTHER CAUSES, SHE'S STANDING UP FOR THIS ONE AND IT IS SOMETHING TO BE ADMIRED! HER DECISION SENDS OUT A GOOD MESSAGE! AMAZING! AMAZING!



  41. 41

    Like most people here i call bull shit. there is no way she didn't know how target was before she even signed a deal and if she didn't im pretty sure someone fucking told her.. This is either a publicity stunt, which would be stupid because no company is just going to change their ways for her or anyone else -.- or she saw all the backlash from her fans and wanted to save face and make her look more noble for pulling out.. seems really shady and money hungry.. don't see how some can't see that.. but whatevers.. if she really cared she shouldn't of made the deal in the first place.. now what about the people who pre-ordered that shit lol

  42. cuete says – reply to this


    42

    i am prety sure that they took a look of the album, and saw it was pure crap and decited not to back it up.



  43. 43

    And you don't think their recent environmental protection violations had anything to do with her dropping the contract?



  44. 44

    Re: ickynicky – Because that is a whol different topic. She is focused on who they support politically.



  45. 45

    this whore tried to fool people: she wanted to earn money by selling herself to target and singing Gay songs at the same time…..
    Lol,LAME….. so when the media called her a cheater,she decided to give up Target thing and only sell records and tickets to desperate gays,who believe her ugly songs are something…..

    LAME LAME LAME….BORN this REPTILE WAY…ewwwwwwwww



  46. 46

    Re: stefystef – right you are….her days are counted….. her new BORN this UGLY REPTILE way is a FLOP

    this is the type of responds we need to the citizen's united ruling!

    Re: hoochpit – LOL you ae right on the money! Fuck that TRANNY ASS BITCH!



  49. 49

    That pic should be labeled with a WARNING! Bytch is scary!



  50. 50

    It clearly states that your credit card won't be charged until your product enters the shipping process. So if they aren't shipping it, they aren't going to charge you. Gawd, I hope you people read before putting your credit card information online.



  51. 51

    Re: Wrenn – I have not heard good things about Forever 21 - you may want to look into it.



  52. 52

    WHO F'ING CARES?!



  53. 53

    So will the deluxe edition be released another way, or is it just dissolved now?

  54. Jer says – reply to this


    54

    I'm glad she got out. She gave target a chance to redeem themselves in the eyes of people who support equality, and the least Target could do was match donations to anti-gay groups with pro-gay groups.

  55. IVIV says – reply to this


    55

    Re: hoochpit – you said it perfectly. SHE KNEW THEIR STANCE BEFORE SHE SIGNED THE DEAL. SHE DID IT ANYWAYS. Now that there was a backlash, she backed out to save her ass. Now she'll be looked at as the good guy again lol. Her "little monsters" will continue to stay blind.



  56. 56

    Good move Gaga. FUCK TARGET.



  57. 57

    Re: stefystef – Save that comment of yours, and come back in 5 years, 10 years. And read what you said again.. You'll realize how fucking stupid you were xP LG's not going away, deal with it :P



  58. 58

    Re: unreal5511 – As Gag stated before, she was trying to convince them, it was the one condition that the deal would work. But as Target didn't want to make ammends, she pulled out. Get over yourself, jealous Britney Stan.



  59. 59

    Thank you lady gaga!



  60. 60

    Re: Christian Indelicato – She's no Madonna. xP



  61. 61

    Re: TrannyTakesATumble – Bingo. Gaga's marketing geeks and management ran the numbers and it probably told them people were pissed at her for doing this in the gay community so they pulled the plug. Gaga could care less, its all about the $$$$$$$$$ for her.



  62. 62

    Re: Christian Indelicato – "Jealous Britney Stan" … they didn't even mention Britney. Clearly you are some teenage little monster troll. Go bow down to Mother Munster somewhere else, k? :D



  63. 63

    i'm still not understanding why it's so horrible that target donates money to anti-gay politicians …? there is nothing that says they can't. just like there is nothing that says they can't donate to pro-gay politicians. welcome to america, where we have freedom of choice. if they want to donate their money, they can do so to whomever they please. if it bothers you, then there is a simple solution: DON'T SHOP THERE. it's a bit ridiculous that you think major businesses, corporations, and celebrities should only support the pro-gay agenda. just because it doesn't go along with your personal beliefs, doesn't necessarily mean its wrong. and gaga did the right thing for herself — she wasn't comfortable with target making those donations, so she pulled out of her deal with them. simple as that.



  64. 64

    Re: Christian Indelicato – Sorry, dear. FAIL comment on your part. I could care less about Britney Spears although she doesn't irritate me like your precious mother monster-face. Maybe you can answer this question. Why did GAGME even annouce this partnership if there was not a resolution to her satisfaction? Bitch should just sell the cd's in Target and then donate all her proceeds to some gay rights organization if she cares so much about her gay fans. She's a fraud.



  65. 65

    Re: GovernmentHooker – well said. unfortunately people like perez and gaga and many others in the gay community have complete tunnel vision. target has helped many organizations including those involving the gay community. at least i know that and u know that and looks like a few others know that. they really are a good company.



  66. 66

    i thought you were totally ok with shopping target, you didnt care when she announced this deal but now youre all high and mighty again



  67. 67

    Re: LizardKinG – wow it's been a long time. How have u been?



  68. 68

    Lady crapface…I enjoy you more when you are singing your generic pop songs instead of shoving gay pride down everyone's throat. I am all for equality but you dont's see any other artist ramming straight pride, now do u?
