Lady Gaga: ‘Do I Believe Black Lives Matter? Yes, Do I Believe This is Going to Get Louder? Yes’
Lady Gaga expressed her support for Black Lives Matter during an interview with Billboard:
When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy. I am in the process of learning and unlearning things I’ve been taught my whole life. Social justice is not just a literacy, it’s a lifestyle. What do I think about [posting] a black square? I think everybody has a different feeling about a black square.
Do I think there’s such a thing as performative activism? Yes. Do I think there’s been true activism that’s been very important and needed? Yes. Do I believe Black lives matter? Yes. Do I believe this is going to get louder? Yes. Do I believe it should? Yes.
