Off Target: Lady Gaga Ends Partnership With Chain Over Donations to Anti-Gay Group

by at . Comments

You don't mess with Lady Gaga. Especially when it comes to gay issues.

The singer reportedly dissolved a deal with Target over its political donations to MN Forward, a political action group that supported an anti-gay candidate.

When Target didn't cut ties with that organization, Gaga pulled the plug.

Beautiful Gaga

If there's one thing that will set Lady Gaga off ...

Tom Emmer, who campaigned for governor of Minnesota in 2010 (he lost), supported a Christian rock organization that advocated violence against gays and supported a proposed state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

The deal, which included an exclusive expanded edition of her forthcoming album Born This Way, was contingent upon Target supporting LGBT charities.

Sources close to Gaga say she was not thrilled with the deal from the get-go, but had hoped to use her leverage in the agreement to push the company to redeem itself for having supported MN Forward and other anti-gay groups.

The details of the broken deal have not yet been made public, but it looks like it's over and done with. What do you think? Did Gaga make the right call?
