Lady Gaga Turns Her Back on Target

Did Lady Gaga get into bed with the wrong company? That's what pundits wondered last month when the singer partnered with Target for an exclusive deluxe edition of her forthcoming album Born This Way, since Target has been the subject of boycotts for donating corporate funds to anti-gay political candidates. "Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they've made in the past," Gaga explained at the time, but it looks like those revisions weren't made fast enough for her liking: The Advocate is reporting that Gaga has now severed the partnership. "She and Target didn't see eye to eye on Target's policy of political donations and how they affect the LGBT community," a source close to the singer confirmed. [Advocate]
