Gaga News


August 2

Pop superstar Lady Gaga slammed Arizona’s controversial new immigration law and urged her fans to protest the measure at two points during her sold-out concert in Phoenix.

She said the law, part of which went into effect on July 29, had created “a state of emergency” in Arizona.

But she told her audience on Saturday, July 31 that she had decided not to boycott the state, as several other national touring acts, including Kanye West, Rage Against the Machine, Sonic Youth and Conor Oberst, have done.

About halfway through her concert at US Airways Center, Lady Gaga told the crowd, “I got a call from some big rappers and big rockers. They said, ‘We’d like you to boycott Arizona because of SB 1070 (a law aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration into the state).

“I told them, ‘Do you really think that us . . . pop stars are going to shut down the state?”

She added, “We have to be active. We have to actively protest. . . . I will not cancel my show. I will hold you, and we will hold each other, and we will protest this state.”

Many of the 14,000-plus fans in attendance applauded loudly during the star’s rants, which came during the 100th show of her global Monster Ball Tour.

Later in the concert, Lady Gaga, who came to Arizona two days before her concert for some time off, said, “I met a boy today who is suffering. . . . He told me his house was raided because of a parking ticket or something.

“They took his brother, and now he is in Mexico . . . It’s really (unfair), and it’s really disgusting. I think it’s important that people understand that it’s a state of emergency for this place and this state.”

The singer, who had “Stop SB 1070″ written on her left forearm during the show, then dedicated the song “You and I” to the boy about whom she had spoken.

A judge temporarily has put on hold some of the key aspects of the law, but parts of it have gone into effect.

Lady Gaga also has been an outspoken advocate for gay rights, and she also addressed that issue in her Phoenix concert. She told her fans that she believes, “”Jesus loves everybody,” no matter what his or her sexual orientation might be.

  1. “House Bill 2013” and “SB1070”

    0 = Arizona
    2 = USA/ Our Constitution/ We the People of the United States

    We are a country that is ruled by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, not by the majority of the day. When you do not know the principles in these documents, therein lays the problem in losing when you are challenged in court.

    This month of July 2010, our U.S. Federal courts have found the so called State of Arizona hate filled legislation namely “House Bill 2013” and “SB1070” Un-constitution (So much for the intellect of Jan Brewer, “Did you read the bills you signed?”). But we all know that they will go crying to the Supreme Court of the United States, please, please, please go. We will fight you in Arizona, any other state, and yes in Washington DC. We will not tire, we will not be silent and we will persevere, I promise you.

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs and hate on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    It’s all about politics: Jan Brewer you were never elected to be Governor, but you have no problem trying to get elected on the back of undocumented workers, you loser (sure you may win but the long-term effects to your so called State is just beginning). Here is a partial list of your hate filled legislation;

    1. S.B. 1070,
    2. House Bill 2013
    3. No permit conceal weapons law,
    4. The famous Birthers law,
    5. Banning Ethnic studies law,

    6. Could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona, ordered to be whiten,
    7. On deck to pass, no citizenship to babies born to undocumented workers,

    8. If she can read she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which was un-constitution and failed when legally challenged),
    9. The boycotted Martin Luther King Day, what idiots don’t want another holiday? Yes, you guessed it Arizona.

    Well Arizona, you can keep boycotting new holidays, passing hate filled legislation and the rest of our country will continue to challenge you in court of law and Boycott your so-called state.

    Lets face it, no one can real believe anything that comes out of Brewer’s mouth, in an interview, this year, in an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. But we are suppose to believe everything else she says, right!

    As they say in the World Cup: Gooooooooal!
