Lady Gaga tweets thanks to Russian PM for supporting gay rights
Lady Gaga has taken to twitter to express her "gratitude" to Russian Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev for standing up for human rights for gays.
The 26-year-old singer, who has never been shy about her support for gay, bisexual and transgender rights, arrived in the historic city on Friday and thanked Medvedev for opposing regional laws that forbid minors from receiving information about homosexuality.
"Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party's anti gay propaganda law and instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia," the Daily Mail quoted her as tweeting.
"Prime Minister Medvedev please accept my gratitude I am looking forward to performing in RUSSIA and celebrating our cultures coming together," she tweeted.
