She has turned out to be the biggest gay rights advocate since Madonna put a safer sex leaflet in the Like a Prayer album, never letting up in her fight for marriage equality in the States and once actually letting a homophobe have it with a glass of beer over the head (which seems like a terrible waste of good alcohol but we appreciate the gesture). And she knows her way around a catchy tune into the bargain. She is Lady Gaga and her new album, Born This Way (a gay anthem if ever we’ve heard one… and we have heard one) is released on Monday. With the hit Born This Way and upcoming hits Judas and the genius rock-out Edge of Glory, it’s been called ‘perfect’ by those who have heard it, got five-star reviews in all the places we reviewed it and should see you through the summer as your getting-ready-to-go-out soundtrack. And remember, a vote for Gaga is a vote for sanity.
