Gay diva Lady Gaga said Tuesday that God put her on Earth to make gay videos.

Gaga, whose 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.
