Only to the ones that had DAPs, Dry ass pussies.
Pretty much everything Gaga stands for and promotes is against organized religion’s beliefs. Releasing a song called “Judas” is not comparable on any level to releasing a song called “911” on 9/11. End of. If anyone genuinely thinks Gaga, as a New Yorker and generally compassionate human being would ever pull a stunt like that, I really suggest you check yourself. The fact this is even a discussion is ridiculous.
I simply highlighted the fact she’s previously made controversial decisions when it comes to what music release.
I’d also imagine it probably didn’t stop with ‘just’ offending religious leaders. Glamourising elements of people’s faith and playing dress up as religious figures was a questionable choice and I imagine, isn’t something she’d necessarily re-do now.
Judas as the bar for her stupidity when making a song/video with R Kelly about doing what you want with her body *and* with visuals from Terry Richardson is right there...
I don’t get how the R Kelly situation was ever even allowed to happen. Everyone knew back then and before about his actions, yet they still did it. Same with Terry.
Are we really having an argument about something that categorically isn’t going to happen?
Just another day in Chromatica.
The “Judas controversy” wasn’t really a controversy. I’m sure there were some articles by the religious right that were angry but some of her stans desperately wanted her to have a Like A Prayer moment and made it out like it was a super risky career move. It wasn’t.
The ‘Judas’ single campaign is not worth this level of intellectual dissection.
Wait but I’m just discovering those glorious harmonies beneath the chorus of 9/11 and icanheargoddotgif.
Didn’t it take until like literally last year for R Kelly to finally be held to account for his actions? Obviously, it was public knowledge back then that he was no good (marrying Aaliyah when she was a minor, for example) but it just seemed to be accepted and ignored. Very, very strange.
They put the VMA performance up on her own channel.
Quite a few of Gaga’s more impactful / ‘iconic’ moments have offended. I guess that’s the nature of an artist like Gaga, who hasn’t shied away from pushing boundaries. I’ve got a friend who’s vegan that went from ‘yaaaaaas Gaga’ to completely disenfranchised with her overnight, ever since the meat dress.
There’s a difference between pushing boundaries by making a political statement and being controversial for the sake of offending others. Gaga has very rarely fallen into the second category. Not everyone is going to be on board with what an artist does, but to deliberately go out of your way to trigger or hurt someone for some column inches is completely different. That’s why the “Judas” comparison is stupid.
... The song isn’t actually titled “9/11” whew.
If anything, if she pushes 911 as a single, i'm sure if she wants to be... the way she normally is, she will use the time 9:11 AM/PM, as opposed to 9/11 the date.
Dd Joe also donated $1000s to Trump/Republicans multiple times over the past year so not really surprised
Celebs have parents with questionable opinions too shocker.
