Gaga explains in a recent Billboard interview why she's allowing Target to release an exclusive edition of her album Born This Way, even though the company donated to anti-gay candidates:

"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 groups."
