レディー・ガガ、LGBTのファンを利用しているとのウワサを断固否定!

レディー・ガガが、LGBT(レズビアン、ゲイ、バイセクシュアル、トランスセクシュアル)のファンを楽曲の売り上げアップに利用しているのではといううわさを一蹴した。

彼女は米『Advocate』誌とのインタビューで、「私の同性愛者のファンへの愛はごく純粋で、本物なの」とコメント。自分はLGBTのコミュニティーの一員だと考えているので、今回のような憶測は非常にバカげているとした。ちなみに『Advocate』誌は、40年以上の歴史を持つLGBTの人々のための雑誌だ。

「ファンのことや音楽への愛、自分の家族が健康でいるかを毎日、一番に考えるけど、それと同時に、社会における正義と平等についても思いをめぐらせているのよ」と、ガガ。

ガガはまた、最新アルバム『Born This Way』についても言及。「一瞬にして生まれた作品じゃないの。己の中にあるユニークでスペシャルな自分、そう、誇るべきものを探しあてるまで、何度も生まれ変わるってことを表現したかったの。私はこうなんだ。これこそが私なんだってね」

先日は東日本大震災の復興支援を訴えるリストバンドで、着服の疑いを指摘されたガガ(彼女はこれを否定)。世界のスーパースターとなったガガのこと、さまざまな報道がなされるのは今後も避けられないかもしれない。だが、彼女のファンや弱い立場の人々への熱い思いは、第三者があれこれ言わなくても、受け取る側の反応を見れば一目瞭然だろう。
