Gay diva Lady Gaga said Tuesday that
God put her on Earth to make gay videos.
St. Louis leg of her Monster
Ball tour was protested for her support of the gay
community by the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, named making
gay videos one of the three reasons God put her on Earth.
She made her remarks in a statement
thanking MTV for thirteen Video Music Award nominations, more than
any artist in MTV history.
"I'm so honored for all the little
monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA
nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history.
Ironically, I'm even more proud it’s an unlucky number; 13,” said
Lady Gaga. “A long time ago the world told me and my little
monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God
put me on Earth for 3 reasons: To make loud music, gay videos, and
cause a damn raucous. Thank You MTV!"
Lady Gaga's outspoken support for gay
rights has turned the rocker into a gay icon. Speaking to CNN's
Larry King, Gaga said her new single Alejandro “is a
celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community. My
admiration of their bravery and their love for one another. Their
courage in their relationships.”
The 27th annual awards show
will be broadcast live from Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12.
