Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) tweeted Monday afternoon that she had just spoken with Lady Gaga, who has been lobbying the Senate ahead of Tuesday’s vote on a defense authorization bill that includes a repeal provision for “Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT).

“[I] thanked her for her advocacy,” said Gillibrand. “I asked her to keep pushing for DADT repeal.”

Gaga had left a message with Gillibrand last week, prompting the senator to reach out on Twitter for another time to talk.
