LADY GAGA and Target have ended their partnership . . . so Target will no longer be releasing a special edition of "Born This Way", when it comes out on May 23rd.
--There's no word on what happened. But when Lady Gaga announced the deal, she said it was contingent on Target "affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and beginning to reform and make amends for the mistakes they've made in the past."
--Target came under fire last year for donating money to Tom Emmer, an anti-gay politician who was running for governor of Minnesota. He lost.
--Word has it that Gaga nixed the deal when Target refused to promise not to donate to any groups believed to be anti-gay in the future.
