Lady Gaga speaks out for abortion rights and gay marriage
“I pray that this country will speak up and we will not stop until its right!” the pop star said during her D.C. tour stop.
Lady Gaga is using her voice for the greater good. The pop star is currently on the North American leg of her Chromatica Ball, and used her tour stop in Washington, D.C., on Monday night to say a few choice words on abortion rights and gay marriage.
“I would like to dedicate this song to every woman in America. To every woman who now has to worry about her body if she gets pregnant. I pray that this country will speak up and we will not stop until it’s right!” the 13-time Grammy winner told her audience before launching into a stripped-back, piano rendition of her 2011 track “The Edge of Glory.” (The track peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed on the chart for 24 weeks.)
Lady Gaga, a prominent advocate of gay rights, has expressed concern about the government’s interference in same-sex marriage.
“This might not be the national anthem, but it’s our national anthem!” she exclaimed before performing her No. 1 smash “Born This Way.” She continued, “They better not try to mess with gay marriage in this country!”
