Lady Gaga Says Trump Is 'Driven By Ignorance' In Trans Rights Attack
This is UGG - #UGGPRIDE
It's only been three years since Lady Gaga began her reign over the realms of music, fashion and popular culture at large -- roughly 36 months filled with number one singles and sold-out tour dates, too many awards and magazine covers to count, an outfit comprised of prime cuts and a giant egg for incubation -- but it feels longer because of the relentless, dazzling evolution of her persona and career. Though she may perpetually be in a frenzied state of flux -- decked out in a dress fashioned from Kermit the Frog heads in one instant and bleeding to death on televisions around the world in the next -- one thing has remained constant since she charged onto the scene in the fall of Lady Gaga is unfailingly dedicated to the LGBT community. Borne out of the gay club scene, the singer has never forgotten where she's come from or the fact that the queer community was the first to champion her music. But viewing her relationship with her LGBT fans as little more than repayment for their devotion -- as might be appropriate with many other pop stars -- is as unfair as it is inaccurate. At the MuchMusic Awards she offered up her trophy for Best International Video to "God and the gays" and she's the first bonafide superstar to give a shout out to trans people in a pop song. But her activism reaches beyond mere consciousness raising.

In fact, it makes me love my fans even more that this rumor is in the world because 17, of them come to an arena every night and they don't care if i'm a man, a woman, a hermaphrodite, gay, straight, transgendered, or transsexual. They don't care!
