    OI GALERA!

    I don't understand the folllowing in red. Please explain what it's saying more easily.

    Lady Gaga is the most followed person on Twitter. ... Her Twitter stream includes political statements such as:

    I JUST GOT OFF STAGE IN COLUMBIA!! CONGRATULATIONS MR. PRESIDENT @BarackObama ...

    and talking to and about her fans:

    OI GALERA! In Rio + My beautiful fans are wearing leather & bandanas in the sun, bad asses, gorgeous smiles & fists in the air! I HEAR U!

    Thank you.

    The first says "Hello, (to) everyone in Rio (de Janeiro)".

    The second, "badass" has a variety of meanings, some good some bad. Based on this context, it would one of the good meanings, such as "cool people".
