Role model to millions of young people shows her pride


“Security?” Lady Gaga said sweetly into her mic, in the first show in her Joanne World Tour. “May I have that gay pride flag, please?” Gaga – who was standing on a stage in the middle of the floor – got her wish, and she was handed that rainbow flag from the audience. Thousands of Little Monsters cheered as the singer posed onstage with the flag.

“Needless to say, I have a lot to say about this issue,” Gaga, an outspoken LGBTQ advocate, said. “But the most important thing that I’ve got to say about it, is that everybody’s got to love each other.”

Those familiar with Gaga’s latest album could predict the next song in her set.

“So for any of who don’t believe in equality that are here this evening – Come to Mama.”

Come to Mama partial lyrics:

Everybody’s got to love each other
Stop throwin’ stones at your sisters and your brothers…

Come to mama
Tell me who hurt ya
There’s gonna be no future
If we don’t figure this out

Why do we gotta tell each other how to live?
The only prisons that exist are ones we put each other in
Why do we gotta tell each other how to live?
Look what that rainbow did

Gaga continued her show as a backup dancer incorporated the flag into the next number.

Lady Gaga has over 75 million Twitter and Facebook followers/fans – a number which could fill the states of Texas, California and New York.

When it comes to Twitter, one out of six users follower her, and if each of them retweeted her tweets they could, hypothetically, reach 7.5 billion people. And they’re tweeting good things about the Mother Monster, too, with 95 percent of “Lady Gaga” mentions on Twitter being positive.

Gaga received 41,000 tweets per minute on Twitter during her Super Bowl Halftime performance. And on Facebook, 396,000 people per minute were talking about Lady Gaga, according to Fox’s media stats.
