Lady Gaga dominated the 2010 Video Music Awards, taking home a total of 8 awards! During her acceptance speech for the coveted “Video of the Year” award, Gaga revealed the title of her forthcoming album, Born This Way, gave a sneak peak at one of its songs, and stole the show with her final outfit of the night, made of real, yes real, raw meat.
Lady Gaga’s 2010 Video Music Award Wins:
Video of the Year – “Bad Romance”
Best Pop Video – “Bad Romance”
Best Female Video – “Bad Romance”
Best Collaboration – “Telephone” feat. Beyonce
Best Dance Video – “Bad Romance”
Best Choreography – “Bad Romance”
Best Direction – “Bad Romance”

Gaga shared the spotlight at the event with a very special entourage consisting of former soldiers discharged from service due to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the policy of the United States’ military that forbids gay and lesbian soldiers from being open about their sexuality.
The superstar is now asking fans to join her and SLDN (Servicemembers Legal Defense Network) in helping repeal the discriminatory policy. Since the inception of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in 1994, SLDN has been legally defending and fighting for the rights of the courageous service members unfairly discharged.
