Update: This letter has proven to be fake. It is still hilarious for its satire though.
This evening, a letter allegedly written by Lady Gaga to President Obama (she addresses him as 'Barry') has hit the Internet. It sounds like something Lady Gaga would write (meaning it is all about her rather than the LGBT cause) and is hilarious, even though Gaga didn't intend it to be that way. Here are the contents:
"Dear Barry -- I am sorry this letter is so informal. But it is from my heart. I want to be the United Nations Ambassador for LGBT rights. As you know, I and my mother Cynthia run the Born This Way foundation and we have helped save the lives of many LGBT youth. I was bullied as a youth and understand how LGBT youth feel. Every single night, I cry just thinking about their pain. I am them. They are me!
As the UN ambassador for LGBT rights, I would need your support and activism. It is important that you attend some of my performances in promotion for my new album ARTPOP. It is important that you play some of the songs during your speeches. It is important that you help me pass laws against bullying, particularly on the Internet. There are many people who call my little monsters faggots. There are many who call me names as well. We need to stop these people because they are leading others to participate in bullying.
Finally, I want to say how much I identify with the bullying you receive just because you are Black. You certainly are not a slave, you are not on welfare, you don't rap about ho's and guns, and you don't walk around with tattoos glued all over your body. You don't deserve the bullying comments from the right wing conservatives. I understand how you feel. Please support me in my latest endeavor. Love, Lady Gaga."
Let's hope that if this letter is real, Obama doesn't make the mistake of letting this attention-seeking drug addict pretend to be the leader of LGBT rights. She has done enough harm by hijacking the gay rights movement and making it all about her rather than the actual cause. Since Lady Gaga is now the most hated woman on the planet, the LGBT community does not need people thinking she is their representative.
