Lady GaGa Made Bold Statement About SB 1070 at Concert


Lady GaGa


In the middle of her concert in Phoenix, the singer advised her little monsters to stand up together and be heard against the state's 'disgusting' law.

Lady GaGa did not obey some people who urged her to boycott the July 31 concert in Phoenix, Arizona. About 14,000 of her fans turned up at her gig and they screamed when the singer made a powerful statement about the state's controversial law, the SB 1070 bill.

Saying the crowd made her brave not to listen to those who want her to cancel the concert, GaGa asked the audience to let go of their insecurities including "the law". Many artists like Shakira and Rage Against the Machine have expressed their opposition against the immigration law which many thought is discriminative.

"I got a call from some big rappers and big rockers. They said, 'We'd like you to boycott Arizona because of SB 1070'," GaGa told the crowd. "I told them, 'Do you really think that us ...pop stars are going to shut down the state?' " She had "Stop SB 1070" scrawled on her forearm.

She recalled an encounter with a boy whose brother is taken to Mexico in a house raid. "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," she said before dedicating her song "You and I" for the boy.

GaGa spread the message, "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."

    love you gaga.. obviously if we all speak english. we are not native of this land because.. we don't speak in a special dialect of a native american tribe.(they were here first) and if you're a human big or if you a humanity tree. we all come from the same place and we all deserve equal rights. illegal immigrants are not illegal by choice they are illegal because they were either about to die of hunger where they lived. to come into this country in a legal form you either have to be a lawyer or a doctor.
