Lady Gaga Speaks Out Against Arizona Immigration Law at Phoenix Concert

Gaga even alluded to calls she'd received from some "really big rock and rollers, big pop stars, big rappers" asking her to boycott performing in the embattled state, but she admitted she went ahead with the show for her fans. Gaga called the concert a political statement in itself: "The nature of the 'Monster Ball' is to actively protest prejudice and injustice and that bulls**t that is put on our society," she said. "Because you're a superstar no matter who you are, or where you come from. And you were born that way."
