Gaga confirms shelving Target partnership
Lady Gaga has ended her partnership with US retail giant Target due to the company’s continued affiliation with anti-gay rights politicians.
Gaga was due to exclusively release a special edition of her new album, ‘Born This Way,’ through the chain store but has decided to nix the deal. Her rep said both parties "came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership a few weeks ago."
“We were very surprised and disappointed by the statements made by Lady Gaga's organisation related to her partnership with Target,” a company spokesperson said in a statement. “Target remains committed to the LGBT community as demonstrated by our contributions to various LGBT organisations, our recently established Policy Committee to review our political giving and our respectful, inclusive workplace environment."
