Lady Gaga Says No To Target Exclusivity

Lady Gaga may seem pretty outrageous and self absorbed as she walks, or rides, down runways in crazy outfits but she sticks to her guns. The pop star recently cut ties with the uber-corporation Target after the company made a monetary donation supporting an anti-gay politician. I say good for her.

Target even supports their decision so strong heatedly that they decided to part ways with Gaga rather than reevaluate their previous decision.

Lady Gaga has dissolved a deal with retail giant Target over the chain’s controversial policy regarding political donations. “She and Target didn’t see eye to eye on Target’s policy of political donations and how they affect the LGBT community,” a source close to the singer tells The Advocate.

Gaga had inked a deal with the retailer to offer an exclusive deluxe edition of her highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Born This Way.’ Gaga, an ardent gay rights activist, told Billboard last month the deal “hinged upon their [Target’s] reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those groups.”

Apparently unhappy with the company’s efforts, the singer and Target “came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership” (via E!).
Last year, it was revealed that Target had donated corporate funds to MN Forward, a political action committee that supported anti-LGBT Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer’s failed 2010 run for office.
