(CNN) – Pop singer Lady Gaga engaged in a back-and-forth Tuesday with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Twitter over the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
Gaga encouraged her flocks of fans on Twitter to call upon Reid to schedule a Senate vote on the policy.
"Gay Veterans were my VMA dates. Repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell," Gaga tweeted on Tuesday. "CALL HARRY REID to Schedule Senate Vote."
A repeal would end the Clinton-era policy that prevents gay Americans from openly serving in the military.
The problem? The vote is already scheduled for next week. And, Reid actually supports the repeal.
His staff tweeted a response to Gaga's tweet.
"@ladygaga There is a vote on #DADT next week. Anyone qualified to serve this country should be allowed to do so," the tweet read.
Reid has long been an advocate for repealing the policy.
Gaga's call to action comes after her surprising arm candy at the Video Music Awards. She strutted down the white carpet with four gay and lesbian veterans who either were forced to–or chose to–leave the military in the name of their sexuality.
Lady Gaga is just as informed as a lot of people, take Palin for instance.
"Lady GaGa" is the Nancy Pelosi of the music world.
Maybe they can mend fences. After Reid is fired, he can be a roadie for the choadie, and live out his life scrubbing the skid marks out of GaGa's tutus.
Is Lady her first name?. Because she sure doesn't look like a Lady to me especially with the cold cuts outfit she is wearing now.
A confession: I've always thought Gaga was pretty awesome. This just adds to her amazingness.
Come on CNN... now we're getting "opinions" from Lady Gaga. Just when Palin was starting to wane. I like her style but whatever she posts are just diatribe.
Why don't we just let California secede from the Union and they can have their own military with training camps in San Francisco. Lady GG can be the chief commanding officer. Cher and Madonna can be her ... whatever.
Oh, and we can toss Barney Frank in to spice it up
Well, nobody ever said Lady Gaga was a brain surgeon...
Just the same... nice to know Harry and Gaga are on the same page.
I love Lady Gaga for this! I've been waiting for more celebrities using their voice for causes that are relevant! Issues such as Darfur and AIDS in Africa should not be the only focus.
lady blah blah needs to go away. no talent copycat
hary is going to retire after the mid term elections – and not by choice either. But, don't ask Harry - and don;t tell Harry. It will be a big surprise for this useless beauracrat who is leading this nation into the sewer with his reckless spending and his partisan ways.
