Lady Gaga Slams Arizona's SB 1070 During Monster Ball Performance in Phoenix

She's a freak, what can I say? I still trip on her fashion and outrageousness, but at this point she's totally FUBAR on politics.

At Rolling Stone, "
Lady Gaga Protests Arizona Immigration Law in Phoenix":

Lady Gaga loudly contested Arizona's controversial new immigration law SB 1070 during her Monster Ball tour stop in Phoenix Saturday night. With "Stop SB 1070" written prominently on her left forearm, Gaga told the approving crowd, "Tonight, I want you to reject any person or any thing or any law that has made you feel like you don't belong. I got a phone call from a couple really big rock and rollers, big pop stars, big rappers, and they said, 'We'd like you to boycott Arizona because of SB 1070.' And I said, 'Do you really think that us dumb fucking pop stars are going to collapse the economy of Arizona?'"

Instead of avoiding the state, Lady Gaga said she wanted to take the fight straight to the heart of Arizona. "I'll tell you what we have to do about SB 1070: We have to be active," she said. "We have to protest... I will not cancel my show. I will yell and I will scream louder and I will hold you, and we will hold each other, and we will peaceably protest this state. Because if it wasn't for all you immigrants, this country wouldn't have shit."
