Earlier this week, Olympian Tom Daley came out, saying he is in a relationship with a man, sparking a lot of conversation. When appearing on Chatty Man with Alan Carr, Lady Gaga spoke out about anti-gay countries hosting the Olympics, in addition to applauding Daley's decision to come out. Gaga believes the United States should not be participating in the 2014 games, hosted by Russia, due to the anti-gay legislation that exists. She told Carr, "I would never take anything away from their hard work, I just think it is absolutely wrong for so many countries to send money and economy in the way of a country that doesn't support gays." She went on to say, "It made me very sad to see the pain some of the gay kids are in in Russia, and for the world to send their finest for the Olympics.... I hate saying that because I'm so excited for those like Tom Daley to go and to win and rejoice." Daley will not be participating in the 2014 games, but there are many closeted and out athletes that will be. Gaga was asked about returning to Russia and she responded with, "I don't think I'm even allowed in anymore because I screamed 'I'm gay, arrest me' on stage last time I was there, so..." Gaga ignored warnings about spreading "gay propoganda," saying things like, "Where's all my gay kids tonight? Tonight, this is my house, Russia." and "Thank you for spreading the message of equality around the world." As of right now, there has been no change in Russia's anti-gay stance, nor has there been any country announced they will not be participating. What do you think? Is Gaga right? Should the United States decline to participate in the games?
