Right?

As a software people myself I'd be happy if she performed at an event I was at... there's definitely plenty of debatable and actual harm in the tech industry but there is absolutely nothing redeeming about Amway or its owners. I don't think you can lump them together as all just corporate gigs (and I have no problem with her getting paid in general). Both the company and the DeVos family are awful and evil, predatory and causing lasting harm to real people's lives in business and public policy.

It seems likely that the reason for this performance could be something contractual or some other behind-the-scenes reason. Performing for Amway definitely doesn't enhance her image the way the Apple performance did - the opening of Apple Park was a big deal and something that will be part of tech history. I hope this one in particular wasn't just for the money, or if it was, that Bobby etc learn to vet these better.

If this was a contractual obligation, she's an idiot. I watched her perform for SAP and she spoke at length about researching the company because SAP is not a household brand. If your whole thing is protecting LGBT kids, not associating your brand with the DeVos family is like the bare minimum.

Only GGD fools would be criticizing a performer for booking performances.

You can @ us, honey.  Gaga  runs an anti-bullying foundation devoted to helping LGBT kids and empowering young people,  the bare minimum she could do is not take blood money from the f*cking DeVos family. 

 “Betsy DeVos has spent the last year and half relentlessly attacking the rights of transgender students, youth of color, survivors of sexual assault and students with disabilities. While these survey results underscore the challenges facing LGBTQ youth, it also reflects their perseverance and strength in the face of bullies — whether in their classrooms or the federal government. Given the disastrous and dangerous actions of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, the question must be asked of everyone in this administration, ‘How do you sleep at night?’ “

Not to mention the actual company itself...

I'm all for Gaga performing for corporate/private events as a means of earning some cash and rehearsing her Enigma show, but.... does anyone know who owns AMWAY?  The DeVos family.... yes, THAT DeVos.  Betsy DeVos, Trump's hand-picked Secretary of Education and all around terrible human.  It's very disturbing to me that Gaga would perform for an event with such deep-rooted connections to the Trump administration unless she literally did not know, in which case I would attribute that to poor management. 

Trash decision, the worst, I agree wholeheartedly :confused: can't believe she let it happen honestly. Hopefully it doesn't get out.

I don't really think it will... I was actually surprised that nobody had mentioned Amway's association with the DeVos family on here nor on Twitter before I posted my comment earlier.  Fortunately, that must mean that most people must not know about it.

I say "fortunately" because I really do not believe that this was a conscious decision from Gaga.  She is not an artist who would abandon decades of her strong-standing beliefs for a paycheck.  This is a woman who literally marched the streets of NYC on the eve of election night to protest the Trump Administration's disastrous win. 

I genuinely think that this gig was not properly vetted by her team.  Gaga would never had accepted this had she had known.  She is one of the most sought-after entertainers in world at the moment and could have easily taken the check from countless other corporations who would have paid top dollar to have her at their event.

I'm sure there wasn't a contractual reason for this.  I work in the entertainment industry and represent another touring artist and have a good understanding of how these things work.  Someone like Lady Gaga - one of the most powerful women in the world - would NEVER sign a contract with MGM that granted them permission to sell Enigma to corporate entities without the shows being mutually agreed upon by the talent, client, buyer, etc.  Why?  To prevent things like this from happening  (ie. Gaga most certainly would not sign off on performing for Chick-Fil-A's annual gathering because the company's values most certainly do not  align with hers.)

So, yeah, I do not think this had anything to do with a contract and feel that you nailed it on the poor vetting.

Well, she did perform at Coachella AND had a deal with Urban Outfitters. Both donate to anti-LGBT causes.

Philip Anschutz being Philip Anschutz  :wtf: makes being a music fan so awkward because AEG is the second largest concert promoter in the world. Artists and fans alike can boycott Coachella all they want but I'm not sure either can  totally avoid AEG if live music your job/hobby. Just look at their artist roster and venue list. It's f*cked up.

UO and Amway don't offer anything to artists but cold hard cash. It's pathetic.
