Lady Gaga Celebrates '30 More Years of Them Calling Me a Slut'

ABC News Blogs

While Lady Gaga has been busy with her Born This Way Ball tour, her name has been splashed all over the headlines, and not for very nice reasons.

Many stories have focused on her recent weight gain, while still others reported that a New York City official called her a "slut" for a perception that she promotes drug use to young people. Gaga addressed both those topics on stage in Zurich, Switzerland, Saturday night.

While performing her song "Hair," which is all about individuality, Gaga addressed the crowd about her recent media coverage.

"They won't kill me. They won't stop me from speaking my mind. I will make music for you for the next 30 years," she said. "Let's celebrate. To 30 more years of them calling me a slut. To 30 more years of them calling me a fat, attention-seeking whore. To 30 more years of people telling me to shut my mouth about equality and gay rights."

As the audience cheered and applauded, Gaga, 26, completed her speech by saying, "May we cheer and celebrate to 30 more years of the conversation that we've started, that we're never going to finish."

She then finished singing "Hair."
