I can't really tell if Lady

I can't really tell if Lady Gaga truly sincerely cares about the LGBT community and her cause is genuine, or if she's just using us to stir up controversy and gain more attention for promoting a "scandalous" cause.

I will say that she is better than most pop singers on the charts today, though that's not saying too much.

I don't think she truly does. I think...

She saw a population of people being oppressed in a country wide scandal/ culture war, if you want to call it that, and she used it to her advantage.

and I will have to agree to disagree w/ ya on that one...have never liked gaga and never will

I think there aren't enough gay musicians.

I wanted to point out somebody else who would be a better gay advocate. But then I realized that, of all the great musicians I know, none of them are gay. Come on.

So...

Her naming her tour after her own song annoys you?!

You don't have to be named an advocate for something. You can support causes without anyone's approval or endorsement.

I mean, would you also say "Who decided this person was the voice of breast cancer awareness?"

Of course, you also have issues with the whole "gay community" concept to begin with, so probably traces back to that more than anything. Otherwise, your new addendum makes less sense.

You know Lady Gaga is bi, right?

It's not like she's some random person taking advantage of the gay community.

The ducks will get you!

didn't know that, actually.

but honestly, how many girls do you know that are 'bi' and just say that to get attention from guys?

there are more than a few out there.

Very true.

Like I say quite often. All women are bisexual.

Gaga's vocal coach did the singing voice of Riot on the 80s cartoon Jem. Bet you didn't know that!

Poor is the man
Whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that's right, love me
I wanna be your baby
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love
I'm open and ready
