Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga's Tears For Gay Soldier

Lady Gaga burst into tears after a gay soldier approached her at an album signing in New York and gave her his service jacket as thanks for her work fighting America's controversial 'Don't ask, don't tell' policy.
The pop superstar is a vocal activist for equality and she has been campaigning against the treatment of gay American troops, who are urged to keep their sexuality a secret.
A young gay serviceman approached the singer as she was signing copies of her latest record at a Best Buy store in Manhattan in May (11), and Gaga became emotional as he thanked her for her good work.
She tells The Advocate magazine, "He was afraid that he would be discharged and that he would be judged or found out. (He said) that the fight in America against 'Don't ask, don't tell' and the fight for equality made him feel stronger and made him feel safe, and he gave me his service jacket. And we just held each other and cried...
"That was such a pure and wonderful moment that we shared, and I remember thinking, 'There's no album sale, no number one, that could compete with this moment'. That is what the f**k it's all about. What the f**k it's all about is if I can write one song that could change one person's life."
