Lady Gaga’s Wild Weekend: DADT and Paris Drama
It was a weekend chock full of excitement and drama for Lady Gaga.
The eccentric songstress was in Europe on tour, and though she was overseas, Gaga took the time on Saturday to send her thoughts back home following the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law for the nation’s military. Gaga snapped a pic of herself holding a “Full equality” sign, saying on Twitter:
Can’t hold back the tears+pride. We did it!i Our voice was heard + today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 YEARS. Today I am so proud to be American. I wish I was home so I could throw a Parade.
As exciting as the news may have been to Gaga, it was only a matter of time until a series of downers rained on her parade.
As her massive tour caravan approached Paris, French authorities held the 28-truck envoy for more than a day, causing the Paris concert to be canceled. Even worse, two members of Lady Gaga’s crew were arrested. A condensed bundle of Tweets from Gaga explains:
All 28 of my trucks for the Monsterball were detained by the French government going on over 26 hrs, 2 of my employees were arrested trying … to get into Paris so we could perform. I am furious and devasted, its unfair to my fans and to me … Devastated … I asked if I could do a stripped version of show, but there would be no sound or power source, its all been detained. I’m so sorry,angry+sad
The nixed Sunday show will be made up on Tuesday, and Gaga tweeted that she’s going to give fans “the nite of ure life.”
