Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball pawed its way to St. Petersburg where a ban on gay propaganda landed fellow pop superstar/rival Madonna in hot water just a few months ago.
“Prime Minister Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party’s anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia.”
“Prime Minister Medvedev please accept my gratitude I am looking forward to performing in RUSSIA & celebrating our cultures coming together.”
Madge had incensed anti-gay activists by flagrantly flouncing the city’s ban on gay propaganda (by pretty much just showing up in St. Petersburg), leading to a $10 million lawsuit that was eventually dropped for being generally ridiculous.
