Lady Gaga & Target Part Ways Over ‘Born This Way’

A spokesperson close to Lady Gaga confirms she is dropping the special edition deal of her forthcoming CD “Born This Way” with Target over its controversial political donations. The source said, “She and Target didn’t see eye to eye on Target’s policy of political donations and how they affect the LGBT community.”

In the recent past, Target has been criticized by the LGBT community for supporting a political action committee in Minnesota that supported an anti-gay candidate for governor, Tom Emmer.

During negotiations with Target, Gaga stated, “That discussion was one of the most intense conversations I’ve ever had in a business meeting,” Gaga told the music publication Billboard. “Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they’ve made in the past … our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those [anti-gay] groups.”

In an email to The Advocate, Lady Gaga’s publicist said, “Lady Gaga and Target came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership a few weeks ago.”
