"Lady Gaga" has become something of a worldwide pop culture phenomenon. On youtube alone, her videos have had HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of views and I understand her songs play on the radio a lot too. I see references to "Lady Gaga" all over the newspapers, all over the internet and someone mentions that name at least every second on twitter. She has been named as one of the world's most influential, if not THE most influential celebrity. Quite a marketing coup!
So if she has become such an influential person, lets have a look at what her songs are saying. And lets try to evaluate the spiritual source of her songs, if there is one. Where is this woman leading today's youth? Towards God, or away from God?
Ok, so now I will quote from what I presume to be an official copy of her teachings – I mean lyrics – from metrolyrics.com. We will look at the song 'Born this Way'. Here we go:
"It doesn't matter if you love him or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
'Cause you were born this way, baby"
This song refers explicitly to God the Creator later on. So when she talks of capital H-I-M presumably she is also referring to GOD. Almighty God, the Creator and Judge of all, is being referenced in this song. And what does Lady Gaga say?
"It doesn't matter if you love … H-I-M". It doesn't matter if you love God.
Are you going to let that kind of message play through your head? That it doesn't matter if you love God? Or that its just as good as loving some boyfriend? You might say "It doesn't affect me. I just like the music." If you say that, you don't know how the human mind works. These repeated messages that we consent to enjoy have the affect of changing our values and beliefs over time.
I just want you to know that Jesus said the greatest commandment is to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul and with all your strength". But Lady Gaga says it doesn't matter if you love God. Who are you going to believe?
Someone might say: "Oh, I believe in God. I believe in Jesus". Lady Gaga apparently believes in the existence of God and Jesus also, but she contradicts what Jesus says again and again. The world loves Lady Gaga, and buys her CDs, even though she says the opposite to what Jesus says. And I am going to prove this again and again to you.
If you believe in the existence of spirits, and that musicians can get their energy and inspiriation from spiritual forces, then could it be just possible that Lady Gaga is tapping into spiritual power that is HOSTILE to the Creator of the Universe, and that these spiritual powers are the ones who have catapulted her to meteoric heights of fame in a few short years? Put that thought on hold, lets keep looking at these lyrics and their message.
"Just put your paws up, cause you were born this way, baby."
Do humans have paws? No, animal have paws. Cats have paws. Lions, tigers and bears have paws. Paws are weapons, they are harmful. Lady Gaga is telling you basically that you are an ANIMAL, and you were BORN THIS WAY. So just accept the way you are, it doesn't matter whether you love God or not, you animal. Just follow your instincts. Are you going to let this young woman tell you this in the inner sanctuary of your mind?
"There's nothin' wrong with lovin' who you are
She said, 'cause He made you perfect, babe
So hold your head up, girl and you you'll go far
Listen to me when I say"
I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way
