Lady Gaga Supports Undocumented Citizens

When Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour first came to Arizona in July 2010, she told the audience that other people in the music industry wanted her to boycott Arizona because of SB1070, also known as The Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act. At the time of the concert, SB1070 was just a bill but has now since been signed into law.

I didn’t know how to respond exactly, I was just so dumbfounded. I mean, come on, I’m pretty attractive.
