Lady Gaga an Anti-Christ?

Philippines
May 20, 2012 9:16am CST
Recently, Lady Gaga has received numerous protests for her interpretation of her art through her fashion, music, and music videos. The religious sect was moved upon hearing her song "Judas". I got really curious so I searched the lyrics online. Honestly, I was really surprised and shocked with the lyrics. Art may be interpreted in anyway, yes, but we also have to be responsible with our acts. She's promoting "respect for LGBT rights" and "anti-bullying" which both means to respect others and their preferences as well. I don't contest with this but with the keyword respect, I believe the religious sect also asks the same by not mocking the God that the religious people believe in. Again, the the keyword is "respect". I think everyone deserves that. =)

I have so many words to say about Lady Gaga. Wake up!!!!! Your soul is crying and being drown by the illumination of the world. Wake up!!!!! Even though we need to respect everyone and its belief but we should put also the right props in making videos and should be relevant to the songs Wake up!!!!! please open your eyes and mind. Those people surrounded by her, only uses her fame, to enter our minds.. I do not judge her coz I'm only human. Sometimes I made mistakes. I want her to open her mind. I know her history is not that good. She's bullied, was thrown into a trash can. Most of us experienced being bullied by others. It's just that we need to strengthen our faith coz it is part of Human's endurance test. If your curios and interested in searching many symbols of Lady Gaga's videos just search in youtube and you'll be shock.

I have seen some of those blogs that interprets her songs, lyrics and videos. It's really shocking. I didn't mind them back then until she came out with the song Judas. Maybe she should stop using the symbolism that religious people use. Freedom and fame comes with great responsibility. We all care about freedom of expression. If we express our feelings and someone goes against us, we cry for our rights to freedom of expression but then when we do it to others, we also cry for our freedom of expression. I mean, how about others' right to expression, right? SO if Lady Gaga is just expressing her artistic side, what about the rights of the religious sector? Just as how we ask the religious sector to respect the preferences of the LGBT, we should also pay our respect for the religious sector. =)

your absolutely right.They protested because they used the symbol of religion in which was not part of the songs or videos, it's inappropriate. The interpretation between lady Gaga and the protester were misunderstood, they just want Lady Gaga to open her eyes and mind while she's conquering Manila. If we just heard it clearly and loudly on what they were trying to raised. Its not for their own good it's for Lady Gaga. They've done nothing wrong. It's just people now-a days directly speak of their mind but they don't easily look at behind those hint. I heard when you sold your soul to the devil in Hollywood.Once you signed a contract, you cannot escape or get away from them coz if you try to betrayed them. They gonna haunt you and kill you as a sacrifice.

I watched the video Judas just this evening. For me the entire video actually display mockery of Christ. The washing of the feet, the Passion of Christ, the disciples and parts about how Jesus lived. Lady Gaga is a person of influence. She was able to encourage a lot of people help those in need like the earthquake victims by going there, herself. If she is a person of great influence, then she could at least be sensitive with her lyrics and videos. We may have different points of view and beliefs but we can live in harmony and not go to the extend of these protest by way of respect. If they cry for the freedom of expression because we all have democracy, true democracy actually is knowing how to respect others so we all can live peacefully.

Well, yeah some of her videos seem to be mocking God. But not all of them. But I also think she should stop putting religious things in her video and lyrics so people ,especially the religious sector would no go against her.

I strongly agree. Previous songs and videos were okay until she came out with the song Judas. Maybe she should stay away from touching the religious sector so the religious sector will leave her alone too. As the golden rule goes, "Do not do unto others what you don't want others would do unto you." =)

Oh yes.. i o love her songs since they are very catchy and upbeat.. I'd love to hear more from her too, so it would be better for her to not make any references to religious people..it's for the best anyway.

It's really better. I liked her 1st batch of songs really. I don't hate her. I just don't like the idea of playing with religious belief may it be Catholic, Protestant, Islam, Buddhism, Taoist, Hinduism,or whatever belief. All of those deserve respect. =)

oh yeah, i have found such a blog too about the symbolism of her songs and music videos... even the hand gestures. Oh my this woman really was putting up her soul for whoever wants to take it... i have no qualms about her songs - before... paparazzi, eh nothing else i can say, these were pretty tamed songs... unlike the ones she has now... i was like what happened to this woman. Maybe the lyrics, the songs can be subjective when interpreted, but what about her styles, and everything she tries to be... oh what i really hate of her was when she wore a meat to a music award! its disgusting and she has got no respect for life...

I think I've read that blog too about the hand gestures and the interpretations of some of her songs. I used to enjoy her songs but after learning about the song Judas, personally I lost my interest. Not that I am campaigning to ban her. Everyone has their right to preferred music. It's just, to me, the song is disturbing.

I wonder about a lot of those in the entertainment field and how many of them have, in a sense, sold their souls to the devil. You know what's been said about the love of money, and I'd also include fame.

Makes me wonder too how many of the artists around the world could be the same. I'm not judging them as such like I'm all knowing but it just keeps me wondering.

In my own views regarding with this concern, though I am not a fan of her, but I believe that she is expressing herself through this song, "judas". Because as I can recall when she had an interview, she really cleared it up that she dedicated this song to her ex-boyfriend that for so many times hurt her and treated her badly...and despite of all she still love the guy... Well, for me, if we are in a democratic conutry we have the right to express ourself as long as we haven't hurt anyone and never step the right of others. If you feel that she is that under the control of demons then don't watch her on her concert or don't listen to her songs... There are a lot of people who are fun of her music videos and her music...we should also respect their opinions and expression of themselves.

I didn't watch, really. I'm not an MRT ride away, anyway. =) I don't mean to start or rouse a negative discussion here, really, but all I could say is, "I'll bring him down, the king with no crown" would mean about an ex-boyfriend. If that's her way, then she could at least have been careful with her lyrics. She's a very influential person and that alone would attract lots of attention. She's a public figure, along with fame comes a big responsibility, don't you agree? I'm not judging her, it's just that I find it odd, the words that she chose on her lyrics. I do respect her as a person, and we all should do the same with others. My point is, the religious sect demands for the same. Perhaps a little sensitivity with the words I guess, because they have been respectful of other people's preferences as well as promoting respect for others by promoting the anti-bullying. Don't we get offended by our friends remarks when they're not careful with the words they utter towards us? That's how the religious sect finds her too. They feel offended by a friend.

Now you got me interested too. Yes, I heard that her concert in the Philippines is getting violent reactions from the religious sector. I have to find out for myself if she is really what they say she is.

Yeah, there have been peaceful protests going on. I'm not any way near but I don't intend to get involved. I don't plan to watch either. I have better plans for my weekdays than go out on a concert and spend. I'd rather earn than spend, y'know. Haha! XD My post here is presenting both sides, both sides are asking for respect, so perhaps the issue could be settled in the long run. I was just just thinking, maybe she could have been more sensitive with choosing her words in her lyrics, something that won't touch other sensitive sect. Besides, if people on the music industry would be touched by other sect, they would react the same way as the religious sect are reacting right now.
