Never one to back down when it comes to an issue of passion, Lady Gaga has released a new video urging support of the repealing of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policies.
Issuing the clip as Senate readies for a hearing on the matter, the “Poker Face” singer tells: “Right now, we’re looking at tomorrow [Tuesday] being a very important day for you guys all to really be paying attention.”
Wearing a short blond wig with a black leather jacket and animal-print tights, Gaga noted that action needs to be taken before Republicans regain House control.
She tells, “Otherwise it could take years for it to happen. Social repression is currently running rampant in this country as many of you know. Kids are being led to believe that it’s OK to hate and condemn based on our differences and this recent horrific news of gay suicides is really proof of our social repression and ultimately government repression that is killing our youth. We have to end this law because it reinforces discrimination and it’s setting a bad example.”
“We’ve known for many years that an overwhelming majority of Americans are ready to repeal,” she continues. “Senators, you have been put on notice by me and by the people of this country. You said you would debate and address this law when the Pentagon returned with a strategy and tomorrow morning you will have it. So will you keep your word? Please keep your word.”
Getting active for another cause, Gaga will be one of the celebrities signing off of Facebook and Twitter tomorrow in recognition of World AIDS Day. Omg! news reported that stars like Usher and Justin Timberlake are also a part of the campaign, which was created on behalf of Alicia Keys’ charity Keep a Child Alive. The celeb participants will sign back on both social networking sites when donations reach $1 million.
In music news, Lady Gaga fans will be happy to learn that the singer has promised somewhere around 20 tracks for the much-anticipated new album.
Playing a gig in Gdansk, the “Alejandro” singer went on to boast that she may very well earn “album of the decade” accolades as a result of her music’s greatness.
“I promise you, I’ll never let you down. And not for nothing: The album’s finished and it’s f—ing really good,” Gaga told the audience. “So whatever this is, whatever you just did for all of us … I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade, just for you.”
A bit more chatty than usual, the 24-year-old seemingly took a swipe at fellow pop stars by saying, “The funny thing is that some people have reduced freedom to a brand. They think that it’s trendy now to be free. They think it’s trendy to be excited about your identity. When in truth, there is nothing trendy about Born This Way.”
Back to her own project, Gaga dished on the length of her album, “I’m still deciding, the album could be longer than you would imagine … I’m not sure. I can’t decide, really, because I think that times are different, you know. It used to be kind of a faux pas to put out too much music on your album, but I feel like you guys deserve all of the records I do, ’cause I work hard on them. So who knows, you might get, like, 20 new Gaga songs.”
