Lady Gaga makes a powerful statement at her Arizona show

By Whitney Milam

HollywoodNews.com: After being urged by several activist groups to cancel the Arizona stop on her Monster Ball summer tour in support of immigration rights, Lady Gaga took to the stage this weekend to address the controversy with a message of love, equality, and peace.

On a fan video recording of the concert, Gaga can be seen telling her audience of thousands about a recent phone call she received asking her to boycott Arizona because of SB1070, and relating her response. “You really think that us dumb f—ing pop stars are gonna collapse the economy in Arizona? I’ll tell you what we have to do about SB1070. We have to be active. We have to actively protest. And the nature of the Monster Ball is to actively protest prejudice and injustice and that bulls—t that is put on our society, because you are a superstar no matter who you are or where you come from and you were born that way!”

Amid deafening cheers, she continued passionately, “I will not cancel my show. I will yell and I will scream louder and I will hold you and we will hold each other and we will peaceably protest this state. Do not be afraid. Because if it wasn’t for all of you immigrants, this country wouldn’t have s–t. And I mean it. I mean it so deeply in my soul.”

Next calling the Arizona LGBTQ community her “deepest and most loyal friends,” Gaga then immediately launched into a performance of “Boys Boys Boys.” To see the full video for yourself, click here.
