Lady Gaga: Prop 8 Ruling a "Revolution"

When California's controversial Prop 8 was overturned last week, many members of the Hollywood community took to the streets (and Twitter) in celebration.

No one was more thrilled to see the gay marriage ban lifted by an appellate judge than Lady Gaga, a longtime champion of gay and lesbian rights and issues.

On Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show Wednesday, Gaga said she was elated, saying "Oh my gosh, I felt like it was a revolution, a gunshot went off."

"It was like setting everything into rotation, it was so exciting," the singer said. "For me, it was a moment that indicates it can happen in every state now."

"It has been important for so long, we've been fighting about it for so long," the rumored hermaphrodite continued. "I've been fighting for it for so long."

Gaga mentioned during the interview that she wrote a song called "Future Love" about the gay community's struggles to win the right to legally marry.

Hopefully, the judge's determination that Prop 8 was a violation of the Constitution's equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment stands for good.
