Was Lady Gaga Right to End Target Deal Over Gay Rights?

What started out as a friendly business partnership between Lady Gaga and Target quickly turned into what Gaga called "one of the most intense conversations I've ever had in a business meeting."
Gaga, an adamant supporter of LGBT groups and gay rights, axed a deal with Target that would have allowed the store to carry an exclusive deluxe edition of "Born This Way," her upcoming album.
"Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they've made in the past," Gaga explained to Billboard.
But E! reports that Target has refused to promise any donations, and in fact has come under fire from LGBT groups in recent months because of a donation that the company made to MN Forward, which supported a prominent anti-gay candidate for Minnesota governor last year.
Gaga's rep confirmed, "Lady Gaga and Target came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership a few weeks ago."
