Lady Gaga was one of the celebrities who openly spoke against Donald Trump during the election campaign 2016. But America made its choice, and whether we like it or not, the winners cannot be judged. But it does not mean that Gaga will change her mind about Trump and his Cabinet, which is mostly composed of radical homophobes. Gaga, who is known as an active pro-LGBT activist and a gay icon, promised to do everything to degend and protect the American LGBT community under Trump.
“What is very important to me is that the LGBTQ community in America knows myself as well as everyone else who loves them are going to do everything that we can to protect the social progress we have made over the last eight years. The truth is, political progress cannot happen unless there is social progress… things cannot work unless people like each other, unless people are kind to one another. I am here to be, in any way that I can, a person that reminds us all that above anything else is kindness. We need to stay in a kind place and we need to bond during this time, and be as harmonious as possible, and intelligent in the way we approach this,” the star told Victoria Derbyshire.
Asked about her new image, she said: “I’ve done a lot in my career. I’m sure there’s many people who would say ‘Lady Gaga’s not role model. Did you see this performance? Did you see that performance?’ But the truth is that when I was younger… I didn’t quite understand the amount of attention that I had [or] the amount of people that would listen to me. I am older now and I am aware of my voice in the world and I want to be as much of a role model as I can be.”
