The Lady Gaga Doth Protest Arizona’s Immigration Law

Lady Gaga added herself to the list of those protesting Arizona’s tough new immigration bill (SB 1070) over the weekend, but she didn’t do so by canceling her scheduled tour date in Phoenix. Instead, on Saturday evening, Gaga went ahead with her gig at the US Airways Center, and said from the stage, “I want you to reject any person or any thing or any law that has ever made you feel like you don’t belong.” The crowd roared, but the “Alejandro” singer wasn’t done yet.

Arty Gaga told her Phoenix audience, “I got a phone call from a couple really big rock and rollers, big pop stars, big rappers, and they said, ‘We’d like you to boycott Arizona…because of SB 1070’. And I said, ‘Do you really think that us dumb fucking pop stars are going to collapse the economy in Arizona?’ I’ll tell you what we have to do about SB 1070. We have to be active.”

The Vanity Fair cover girl continued on, finally wrapping things up nicely by noting, “Do not be afraid, because if it wasn’t for all of you immigrants, this country wouldn’t have shit.”

The Stature Of Liberty couldn’t have said it better herself.

Lady Gaga’s latest release, The Remix, is out tomorrow (August 3).
