Pop star du jour Lady Gaga continued her crusade for marriage equality this weekend in Washington DC. She spoke at the National Equality March before roughly 250,000 LGBT activists and straight allies. During her passionate address, she stated that speaking at the march was the single most important moment in her career. While her speech was mostly poised and poignant, her trademark Gaga outrageousness surfaced at one point, as she screamed “ARE YOU LISTENING?!?” to President Obama. A source that was in the midst of the crowd on the Mall said she had the otherwise-rowdy crowd captivated in silence as she spoke. You go Gaga! [Photo: Splash New Online]
The quest for marriage equality was nationwide yesterday as celebrities Sophia Bush, Emmy Rossum, Perez Hilton, Kelly Osbourne and others marched in West Hollywood to protest Prop 8.
