It's Friday and you know what that means: Time for a new Poll Position question.
This week we want to hear how you feel about Lady Gaga.
Last night the pop star launched the first leg of her eagerly anticipated new world tour, the Born This Way Ball, in Seoul, South Korea.
Gaga's official website explains, "THE BORN THIS WAY BALL is an Electro-Metal Pop-Opera; the tale of the Beginning, the genesis of the Kingdom of Fame... How we were birthed and how we will die celebrating," and early reports imply audiences will be treated to another epic statement from the queen of epic statements.
If Gaga's history tells us anything, we're guessing the tour will feature its fair share of pro-LGBT moments. As a proponent of LGBT rights, Gaga has never shied away from speaking her mind when it comes to issues like gay marriage, repealing "don't ask, don't tell," or most recently, fighting teenage bullying by setting up the Born This Way Foundation in partnership with Harvard University.
Still, some have grown tired of Gaga's antics and others question Gaga's intentions and wonder if she's merely pandering to LGBT community.
So -- tell us what you think. Where do you stand on Lady Gaga?
Vote below and then offer your thoughts in the comments section. Also be sure to check out 11 of Gaga's queerest moments in the following slideshow.
During one of her first big award show moments, Lady Gaga dedicated her win for International Video of the Year for the song "Poker Face" to "God and the gays," thereby proving her just how committed she was to publicly supporting the community.
Lady Gaga starred in a monster movie fantasy photo shoot in the September 2009 issue of <em>Out</em> magazine. In the interview, Gaga revealed "I very much want to inject gay culture into the mainstream... It's not an underground tool for me. It's my whole life. So I always sort of joke the real motivation is to just turn the world gay."
Sure, Beyoncé turned up as Gaga's partner-in-crime in the "Telephone" video, but our favorite co-star is performance artist/personal trainer Heather Cassils, who played the pop star's prisonyard "girlfriend."
While some were outraged by Gaga's use of religious imagery in the video for "Alejandro," others were too busy lusting after the platoon of half-naked, high-heeled hunks cavorting with the singer to care.
Lady Gaga brought members of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (which was dedicated to doing away with the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy) with her on the red carpet. All four of her "dates" had been discharged from the U.S. Armed Services because they were openly gay.
In September of 2010 Lady Gaga drove 11 hours to Portland to speak at a rally in hopes of urging Maine Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe to support the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell." In her speech Gaga remarked, "Equality is the prime rib of America."
In October 2010, Lady Gaga took the stage in front of the Capitol in Washington D.C. to demand equal rights for LGBT people. "Obama, I know you are listening," Gaga said before screaming, "Are you listening? We will continue to push you and your administration to bring your words of promise to a reality."
The video for the song that Elton John said would replace Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" as a gay anthem starts off with a shot of a unicorn and only gets more fantastical from there.
Standing before St. Peter's Basilica, Lady Gaga spoke to the 2011 Europride crowd in Rome. The pop star asserted, "Let's exorcise our anger and baptize our pain and stand here strong. Today let us proclaim the defense of love." Unsurprisingly, the Vatican was none too pleased with Gaga's pro-LGBT message.
Lady Gaga got the night off and her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone, who the pop star says could be read as a trans man, showed up to belt out this country-tinged single.
In February of 2012, Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, launched the Born This Way Foundation at Harvard University. The foundation was founded in 2011 to "<a href="http://bornthiswayfoundation.org/pages/our-mission/" target="_hplink">foster a more accepting society</a>, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. The foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a braver, kinder world."
