Lady Gaga uses her huge arena platform to promote abortion rights.
The Born This Way singer delighted fans in Washington, DC on Monday when she announced during the final stop of her Chromatica Ball tour that the duration of this summer’s shows would now be dedicated to women’s reproductive rights .
According to a video, Gaga made the statement during a piano performance of the 2011 hit “The Edge of Glory.” posted on Twitter.
“I want to dedicate this song to every woman in America, every woman who has to worry about her body now that she’s pregnant,” the 36-year-old pop star told a cheering crowd.
“I pray this country will speak up and we will stick together and not stop until it’s right.”
Throughout the song, she paused from singing to hear the Supreme Court and its June decision, the landmark case of Roe v. Pick up Wade, beat him up.
“What about all the women who are being raped? What about all the women who die in childbirth?” the singer continued.
The ‘A Star Is Born’ actress addressed the crowd one last time before finishing the song – apologizing for being a downer but insisting it was something she needed to address .
“I didn’t want to be like a downer,” she told the audience. “But there are things that are more important than show business.”
Gaga revealed in 2021 that she was raped and impregnated by a music producer in the early days of her meteoric rise to fame and suffered years of psychological trauma — an issue that played a big part in the making of her 2020 album Chromatica .
“You can come back from things like that. But when it hits you really hard, it can… change you. I had a total psychotic breakdown. And I wasn’t the same girl for a few years,” she said on an episode of The Me You Can’t See on Apple TV+.
“The way I feel when I’m in pain was how I felt after I was raped. I’ve had so many MRIs and scans. Right? They can’t, they can’t find it [anything]but your body remembers.”
