I know what you’re all thinking, “Why? She’s so weird! She’s always doing crazy things!” I get questioned a lot about why I love her so much. What I don’t understand is why I get questioned in the first place. What everyone is seeing in the tabloids does not give a single strand of justice as to why millions of her little monsters are in love with her.
First off, yes, she is famous for sporting outrageous and abnormal attire. But since when was it acceptable to bash someone that was confident in showing their uniqueness? What I’m saying is, why should we challenger her individuality when most of us are trapped in a world where we believe the only thing acceptable is being like everyone else?
This is one of the reasons why I love her: she’s not afraid to be herself, to wear what she wants to wear, and hold her head up doing it. Who are we to judge her when all she is doing is expressing herself, promoting individuality and self-confidence?
Secondly, I love her because of her passion for equality, love, and embracing and loving yourself for who you are. What I’m referring to is her on-going commitment to rights for the LGBT (Lesbian/Gay/Bi/Trans) Community.
Even though she may not be a lesbian herself, she fights for these rights. Her commitment has led to many LGBT individuals believing in themselves again by giving them hope that gay-rights will be accepted. (Note: Just in case you were wondering, I’m heterosexual.)
What’s next? She may be an amazing entertainer in terms of creating tons of publicity and headlines, but unlike many other singers out there, she can actually sing. If you look up her older songs that she had performed BEFORE she was famous, you’d fall in love with her voice. Her a Capella versions of current songs are just memorizing. She has a voice and she isn’t afraid to show it.
One more thing, but not the last: her devotion to care for her fans. I really do think she appreciates her fans. There are many instances where she has done things that are out of the ordinary, just to show a little love towards her little monsters. For example, while everyone was lining up for hours to get her autograph, she bought pizza for everyone in line. And who could forget Maria Aragon, the little girl that touched Lady Gaga so much with her cover of Born this Way, that she invited Maria to perform with her in the Monster Ball show in Toronto.
All in all, she’s someone I admire. I don’t want to force everyone in the world to love her, you’re free to your own opinions about her! Maybe she’s just not your cup of tea, it’s understandable! But it does make me urk a little when people just judge her by what they are told through the media, or just judging a book by it’s cover.
What do you think of Gaga, Lovelies? Who are your favorite artists?
