Lady Gaga's Stunning Defense of Christine Blasey Ford Leaves Stephen Colbert Speechless

This weekend, the months of conversation about Lady Gaga’s debut movie will result in what’s promising to be a successful box office debut of A Star Is Born. Ahead of its opening weekend, Gaga stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert not to just plug her movie, but to deliver a powerful and moving statement about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her brave accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. “What I have seen on the news with this debate of Kavanaugh versus Dr. Ford, it’s one of the most upsetting things I’ve ever witnessed,” Gaga began.

Gaga is right of course. And this is nothing new for an artist who has long advocated for sexual assault survivors and the LGBTQ community. But, she could have easily began her long Oscar campaign by using her valuable time on Colbert to talk about herself. Instead, she used her platform—and her status as one of the biggest stars in the world—to defend Dr. Ford. This video has already been viewed 60,000 times as of Friday morning, the same morning the Senate will be voting on Kavanaugh.
