Target and Lady Gaga call off deal

New York — Lady Gaga's deal to sell a special edition of her upcoming album at Target is off.

A representative for the flamboyant and outspoken singer said Wednesday the two sides "came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership a few weeks ago." Last month, it was announced that Target Corp. would be selling a deluxe edition of the album, to be released May 23, with bonus content.

But gay advocates were concerned about the partnership, citing Target's donations during the last election season to a political candidate who was against gay marriage, according to the Associated Press.

The Advocate reported Tuesday that Gaga wasn't comfortable with the deal and ended it.
