Lady Gaga Speaks Out Against SB 1070—and Musicians Boycotting Arizona

Posted By on Mon, Aug 2, 2010 at 11:34 AM

Lady Gaga took a few moments to slam SB 1070 at Saturday's concert in Phoenix, according to a New York Daily News dispatch:

"We have to be active. We have to protest. . . . I will yell and I will scream louder," the 24-year-old pop sensation told the sold-out audience at the US Airways Center. "I will hold you, and we will hold each other, and we will peaceably protest this state."

She then took a few more moments to slam musicians who are boycotting Arizona:

"I got a phone call from a couple really big rock and rollers, big pop stars, big rap artists, and they said, 'We'd like you to boycott Arizona ... because of SB 1070," she told the cheering crowd.

"I said, 'Do you really think that us dumb (expletive) pop stars are going to collapse the economy of Arizona?"
