Deal Or No Deal
"Born This Way" isn't played out just yet.
Lady Gaga reportedly was going to release an exclusive special edition of her upcoming album featuring "Born This Way" to Target - but only if they severed ties with the anti-LGBT politicians they support.
However, the only ties severed were between Lady Gaga and Target. A close friend of Gaga told the Advocate that she "didn't see eye to eye on Target's policy of political donations and how they affect the LGBT community."
Kudos to you Ms. Gaga for standing your ground. It's always encouraging to see musicians putting their beliefs before money. Hopefully this will convince Target that supporting anti-LGBT groups is doing more damage than good (duh)... but I won't be holding my breath.
