So Lady Gaga’s new single “Born This Way” was released today. Let me say it has a killer hook, is extremely catchy, has a incredible message, and I will admit I LOVE it. That being said though I do feel she is pandering to the GLBT community. Is there any thing wrong with that? To be honest I don’t know.
I mean Lady Gaga was a strong ally in the fight to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and we all know she loves our community and is one of our biggest advocates for equal rights. So I can appreciate her wanting to right a “Gay Anthem” for us. I’m sure “Born This Way” will be blasting every where for Gay Pride Month. But some of the lyrics are just a little too in your face. I feel she is a talented enough writer that she did not need to do that.
All that being said I give her a huge amount of credit for having the courage to write such a PRO GLBT song that has an incredible message but is extremely catchy at the same time. Plus the marketing for the song was fantastic! Counting down to the release of a new single, GENIUS, in my opinion that is, and really what do I know I’m just a Drag Queen’s husband. 😉
So whether you like Gaga or not you should download this song, yes she is milking our community a little, but the message is fantastic!
Plus I’m sure every Drag Queen every where will be performing this song….LOL.
