Lady Gaga is set to release a limited edition of her new single Born This Way at Target after bosses agreed to donate to gay rights groups.
The Poker Face hitmaker met with Target executives to demand they increase their support for equal rights charities, and make amends for previously supportingpolitical candidates perceived as anti-gay.

As a result of their meeting with the pop star, company chiefs have promised to give more to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community – and Gaga will allow them to sell a special edition of her hit.

She tells Billboard.com, “That discussion was one of the most intense conversations I’ve ever had in a business meeting. 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.

“Our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those (anti-gay) groups.”
