Drag Queens (and other Gays) Revolt Against Lady Gaga



"Gaga's nothing but a Madonna wannabe."
"Gaga insults the Asian population. We're not Orientals!"
"Who does she think she is calling herself Mama Monster?"
"She’s lost her mind and she’s lost me as a fan!"
“Go back to hell with your fake horns bitch!”


Whether you are a Lady Gaga fan or not, pop culture fiends cannot ignore the unsettling unrest from a growing number of those just plain fed up with her.

Every Tuesday in Los Angeles, across from The Grove, famous drag queens perform for a mixed hipster crowd at Sheddy's Public Parlour. Last night (3/1/2011) at Sheddy's Public Parlour drag queens Ms. Luna, Detox Icunt and Raquel Redd staged a demonstration to express their outrage and disapproval for the new Lady Gaga "Born This Way" single and "Mother Monster" video/marketing campaign.

During a high impact number which referred to tabloid crazy celebrities and their publicity stunts, Ms. Luna pulled out the sign which read "Born This Way?" "Don't be a drag" "…Oh really Gaga?" After a moment, Ms. Luna flipped the sign over to have it read "Lady Gaga... why???"

Then in a fit of rage and anger, Miss Luna, Detox Icunt and Raquel Redd ripped the placard in pieces, much like Sinead O'Connor ripped up the Pope’s photograph on "Saturday Night Live" many years ago.

The room began to scream with thunderous applause, hoots and hollers. In response to the anti-Gaga demonstration, a very small chorus of Lady Gaga die-hard fans shouted out that they “still love” their pop star. The crowd lambasted them verbally, as they were clearly a minority.

The drag queens kept on with their routine shouting out to the audience how they are no longer fans of Stefani Germanotta, while making several references to Gaga's recent blatant misteps and marketing ploys.

While the current Gaga "Born This Way" campaign may resonate with some, it is creating a divide. Some of the comments that were shouted out by even audience members were:

"Gaga's nothing but a Madonna wannabe."
"Gaga insults the Asian population. We're not Orientals!"
"Who does she think she is calling herself Mama Monster?"
"She’s lost her mind and she’s lost me as a fan!"
“Go back to hell with your fake horns bitch!”



The rants kept flowing from the drag queens and the audience almost creating pandemonium and hysteria. The crowd flooded the drag queens with cameras and smartphones after the number to take photos because it was so surreal.

Detox Icunt, now famous for her appearance in Rihanna's "S&M" video, began spitting on the Lady Gaga sign as she expressed her disgust while posing for photos.

Then DJ Hollywood Giant began to spin the brand new Madonna remix of “Into the Groove” by F. Physical and the room leaped to their feet and began applauding, screaming and dancing to the beat.

Has Gaga overstepped herself? Can Gaga regain her stronghold in the gay community?
