Lady Gaga’s D.C. Chromatica tour act is dedicated to the cause of abortion rights: “We will not stop until it is right

On her most recent tour stop in the nation’s capital, Lady Gaga energized her Chromatica army with a passionate stance on abortion rights. Monday night in Washington, D.C., the Oscar-winning performer devoted a piano-driven rendition of her 2011 single “The Edge of Glory” to pregnant women. “I would like to dedicate this song to every woman in the United States, to every woman who must now be concerned about her body if she becomes pregnant. I pray that this nation will speak up, that we will remain united, and that we will not give up until the situation is rectified “Gaga remarked as she prepared to perform the song.

She then stopped singing the song’s lyrics to question the crowd about the recent Supreme Court decision to tear down protections for key reproductive rights “What about all of the raped women? What about all the women who are losing their lives during childbirth?” Before concluding the song, she addressed the audience once more on the subject. “I didn’t intend to be that negative,” she remarked. “However, there are things that are more important than show business.” In a 2021 episode of Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry’s AppleTV+ series The Me You Can’t See, Lady Gaga previously discussed her experience as a rape survivor. She described being raped and impregnated by a music producer early in her career, which led in years of psychological suffering – an issue she addresses in the Chromatica Ball’s plot.

“And you may recover from such situations. But when it hits you hard enough, it may… alter you. I had a psychotic breakdown. And for a few years I was not the same woman “In the series, she stated. “After being raped, I felt similarly to how I do when I experience agony. I’ve undergone numerous MRIs and scans. Right? They are unable to find [anything], but your body retains memories.” Gaga collaborated with Diane Warren on the Oscar-nominated song “Til It Happens to You” for the 2015 documentary The Hunting Ground, which examines the culture of campus rape.
