Just when I think I've had my fill of the media juggernaut that is Lady Gaga, she does something that's pretty awesome and deserves mention.
Twice Lady Gaga has swung through my town in the past year, and twice the show has been targeted by homophobic picketers. This time around Lady Gaga instructed fans to "ignore the 'hate criminals' at all costs and be grateful that they are 'not addicted to hate'." (Jezebel) From her Twitter:
"Tonight love and hate met in St. Louis. And love outnumbered the hate, in poetic thousands. Hate left. But love stayed. + Together we sang."
