Lady Gaga's Republican Convention Gig Turned Down As Others Also Reject Big Bill

Lady Gaga may have been "Born This Way," but that way sure isn't Republican - not even for $1 million.

In a new lawsuit filed by the Republican fundraising and advocacy group, American Action Network, details have emerged revealing that Lady Gaga was reportedly offered $1 million to perform at the GOP convention in August, but turned down the offer.

American Action Network is reportedly suing the entertainment vendor the convention used, The Washington Examiner reports.

Gaga was not alone in her dismissal of the convention's lucrative offer, as Dolly Parton and Pitbull also reportedly turned down the gig.

So who did sign on? The convention featured performances by Journey and Kid Rock, while Meat Loaf put on a memorably show at a rally for Mitt Romney.

In response to the reports of Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Pitbull's refusals to play the convention, AAN issued a statement reading, “In planning for our fundraiser in Tampa, e-mails we’re exchanged between AAN fundraising staff and outside vendors exploring various performance options. AAN is an independent group and is no way affiliated with or connected to the RNC nor was the RNC ever privy to these internal discussions. We considered some acts and didn’t seriously consider others, but we were ultimately happy with a great Kid Rock concert. Our events were independent from the official convention and the RNC.”

For its part, the RNC wrote in a blog posted to gop.com, "To be clear, the RNC neither asked, offered, thought of or ever considered the idea of Lady Gaga performing at our convention. And clearly, we didn’t offer a million dollars."
