Pop Music Scandal did some research and came in contact with Adalrich Schulz, the “slave” on her right. We verified it was him, but he only agreed to talk if we don’t show his real picture. Schulz revealed that the photo was taken in 2010, not 2011. But he and his friend weren’t just two men in blackface that cornered Lady Gaga for a photo; GAGA ACTUALLY HAD THEM PUT ON THEIR COSTUMES AND MAKEUP.
“She said she wanted to show how both black people and gay people are repressed by society. She was going to use the picture for some type of PSA or magazine shoot that never happened,” Schulz says,” adding that Gaga was high out of her mind when telling them about her plans.
It looks like posing with gay guys in Blackface is really the way to promote tolerance, AT LEAST FOR GAGA. But it gets worse — Schulz says she called him the N word.
“She told me that I’m her “Ni**a. She was obviously joking around, but didn’t seem to have enough self awareness about how offensive she was acting. She was clearly high and drunk that night,” Schulz reveals, adding that she referred to herself as the “Wonder Woman of the gay community.”
Schulz says he felt really bad about letting Gaga dress him as a gay slave weeks later. He was a huge fan, would do anything to meet her, and this was an opportunity he couldn’t resist.
“I’m not racist at all. I just didn’t think clearly. With the #BlackLivesMatter movement gaining ground over the past few years, I’ve felt even more bad about what I did. But there were no harmful intentions,” Schulz reveals.
One week later, Schulz and his friends received calls from Gaga’s lawyers threatening them in every way possible if they talk about what happened that night. But Schulz says he can no longer remain silent.
“Lady Gaga supposedly preaches equality and tolerance. But using blackface to allegedly promote gay rights was disgusting and exploitative. I can no longer keep my mouth shut about it,” Schulz angrily states.
What’s next for Lady Gaga — WEARING A BURQA to promote FEMINISM? Oh, wait.
