Lady Gaga helps gay fan propose to boyfriend

"I'm not sure, Shaun, but I think Jay might have something to ask you," Gaga said.

Much to his surprise, Jay got down on one knee and proposed. Shaun said, "yes."

The couple remained on the stage as Gaga performed Born This Way.

She told the audience: "My record label, a long time ago, they told me that my show is too gay and I was too gay or this was too gay. I told them, 'Well, it's a great thing that there are gay people all over the world!' Real human beings with real dreams and real stories and you deserve to love and express your love the same as everybody around the world . I wish you a beautiful love and happy marriage."
