NEW YORK - Lady Gaga's deal to sell a special edition of her upcoming album at Target is now out of range.

A representative for the singer said Wednesday the two sides "came to a mutual decision to end their overall exclusive partnership a few weeks ago."

Last month, it was announced that Target would be selling a deluxe edition of the album, to be released May 23, with bonus content.

But gay advocates were concerned about the partnership, citing Target's donations to a political candidate who was against gay marriage. Lady Gaga told Billboard that her relationship with the retail giant was tied to their "reform," supporting the gay community and making up for past "mistakes."

The Advocate reported Tuesday that Lady Gaga wasn't comfortable with the deal and ended it.
