Lady Gaga: Nuhah!

Okay Lady Gaga seems pretty cool on the surface. I mean she’s about the most avant-garde thing in pop music since Madonna or Cyndi Lauper. She’s a LGBT advocate and she’s breaking the ground about perception of female beauty. I must applaud her for these things alone.

But than I saw this…

C’mon Lady!

Here’s the quote :

“You see, if I was a guy, and I was sitting her with a cigarette in my hand, grabbing my crotch and talking about how I make music ’cause I love fast cars and fucking girls, you’d call me a rock star. But when I do it in my music and in my videos, because I’m a female, because I make pop music, you’re judgmental, and you say that it is distracting. I’m just a rock star.

Are you also a feminist?

I’m not a feminist – I, I hail men, I love men. I celebrate American male culture, and beer, and bars and muscle cars…”

Okay, so, what she’s saying she doesn’t want the criticism that comes with of being an empowered woman, but by no means is she willing to be associated with the F-word? Not very edgy.  She gets the double standard that female artist face but refuses to address the issue. I’m surprised that she is that fearful of the stigma.
