American pop star Lady Gaga who first came to our attention in 2008 on debuting her first album “The Fame,” has never been away from the media spotlight. During these last 12 months, the celebrity has been a pretty big hit (excuse the pun) on social networking sites such as YouTube, Facebook and especially Twitter. In recent news, the Bad Romance and Telephone star has tweeted her personal feelings towards the latest DADT campaign.
For those of you who are not familiar with what the initials stand for and what it means, then firstly it means “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and the campaign behind it, is to highlight the troubles that gay men and women experience in the military core about being open about their sexuality and a way in which they too can be seen to be equal. Celebs.gather.com reported that on Saturday a vote was counted from the Senate in relation to the DADT campaign and scored 65-31 in favor of it changing.
Examiner.com said that on finding out the latest score, Gaga tweeted, “Can’t hold back the tears + pride. We did it!! Our voice was heard + today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 years.”
Other celebrities including Ricky Martin tweeted, “DADT is gone! Historical.” American comedienne Ellen DeGeneres said, “Thank you Senators for pushing us one step closer towards full equality.” Indications show that although he has not taken to Twitter, the President himself will be signing the bill.
