American pop star Lady Gaga has been declared an honorary citizen of Sydney for her 'unwavering support' of gay rights as she delighted fans with surprise shows at two city nightspots. The cryptic pop diva was given the honour during a low-key tour of Sydney, which will feature just one invite-only concert at the city's Town Hall for 1,000 people, as a token of gratitude for her gay rights work. 'Lady Gaga has been a powerful force for the gay and lesbian community in Sydney, and we have a rare honour for people whose achievements embrace the ideals and spirit of our city - the title of 'Honorary citizen of Sydney',' said Lord Mayor Clover Moore on Tuesday. 'I am extending that honour to Lady Gaga.'
