Lady Gaga stops show to defend abortion: ‘Some s–t is more important’

Published

Lady Gaga is using her massive arena platform to promote abortion rights.

The “Born This Way” singer fired up fans in Washington, DC, on Monday, announcing during the latest stop on her “Chromatica Ball” tour that the duration of shows this summer would now be dedicated to the reproductive rights of women.

Gaga made the declaration during a piano-based performance of the 2011 hit “The Edge of Glory,” according to a video posted on Twitter.

“I would like to dedicate this song to every woman in America, to every woman who now has to worry about her body if she gets pregnant,” the 36-year-old pop star said to a cheering crowd.

“I pray that this country will speak up and we will stick together and that we will not stop until it’s right.”

Throughout the song, she would take a break from singing to slam the Supreme Court and their June decision to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade case.

“What about all the women who are raped? What about all the women that are dying giving childbirth?” the singer continued.

The “A Star Is Born” actress addressed the crowd one final time before finishing the song — apologizing for being a downer, but insisting it was something she felt that she had to bring up.

Gaga revealed in 2021 that she raped and impregnated by a music producer when she was first starting her career and that she suffered years of psychological trauma.

“I didn’t mean to be like a downer,” she told the audience. “But there’s some s–t that’s more important than show business.”

Gaga revealed in 2021 that she had been raped and impregnated by a music producer during the early days of her meteoric rise and that she suffered years of psychological trauma — a theme that played heavily into 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 break. And, for a couple of years, I was not the same girl,” she said on an episode of “The Me You Can’t See” on Apple TV+.

“The way that I feel when I feel pain was how I felt after I was raped. I’ve had so many MRIs and scans. Right? They can’t, they don’t find [anything], but your body remembers.”

Gun N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose vows to end concert tradition in wake of fan injury

Published

on

The mic-throwing has lived and should be left to die.

Gun N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose pledged to end the 30-year-old tradition of tossing his microphone to the crowd after hitting an Australian woman in the face on Tuesday.

In a statement released on Friday, Rose acknowledged the incident and said he never intended to injure anyone during the band’s show at the Adelaide Oval.

“Obviously we don’t want anyone getting hurt or to somehow in anyway hurt anyone at any of (our) shows anymore,” Rose said before adding he always thought it was common knowledge for a Guns N’ Roses concert.

“Having tossed the mic at the end of (our) show for over 30 years we always felt it was a known part of the very end of (our) performance that fans wanted and were aware of to have an opportunity to catch the mic,” Rose added.

Axl Rose launched the microphone into the crowd after his last song “Paradise City.”

Rose said it was in the interest of public safety to end the gesture, which has become a highly anticipated part of the band’s concerts.

Rebecca Howe, the woman hit at the end of Tuesday’s concert, claims she suffered two black eyes and a busted nose as the band prepared to play its final song of the night, “Take Me Down To Paradise City.”

“What if it was a couple of inches to the right or left? I could have lost an eye … what if it hit me in the mouth and I broke my teeth?” Howe said via the Adelaide Advertiser. “If my head was turned and it hit me in the temple, it could have killed me.”

Rose didn’t directly apologize to Howe for the injury, but called out reporters for the coverage of the incident.

“Unfortunately there r those that for their own reasons chose to frame their reporting regarding this subject in a more negative n’ irresponsible out of nowhere light which couldn’t be further from reality. We hope the public and of course r fans get that sometimes happens.”

Rose ended the statement with a “BIG THANKS” to everyone for understanding.

Guns N’ Roses is finishing up performances in Australia with two shows in New Zealand next week. The band is on hiatus following their New Zealand tour dates until June 2023, where they’ll play in Hyde Park London.”
