lets be real about something
aside from the white vegans who she probably pissed off with her meat dress
lady gaga has fundamentally made her career offending those who the majority of white society wouldn’t stick up for anyways and constantly write off as being “over-sensitive” any time they bring up how a white wonder child of society has done something offensive
trans* folk, people of colour, people with disabilities
i’m probably missing a few categories/she hasn’t gotten to them yet
the more you defend her
or even say “well i’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say she just doesn’t know what she’s perpetuating”
you’re basically excusing a long tradition of white performers/celebrities getting away with doing offensive shit because the other drop of the shoe is that “they just didn’t know”
people like lady gaga make enough money to buy herself a litany of doctorates in every subject area she’s fundamentally offended
and even on a more basic note, she could just use google like everybody else
the problem is she doesn’t want to, doesn’t care to, and will never have an incentive to unless her fans grow a little moxie and really hold her accountable for being the privileged fucked up person she is.
stop making excuses for why a white, cis, able bodied, wealthy woman should be able to piss off so many people yet subsequently somehow “not know” what she’s doing is offensive
cause if you choose to keep excusing her, even in the most passive of ways, all because you like her caterwauling on top of overplayed techno beats
well congrats for helping the white supremacy hamster wheel continue to turn rust free
I love how people keep on using the most tamest photos of her, her looks and styles from the last 13 years can’t be summed up in 3 photos. Wearing light make up and red lipstick with leather means she’s copying Gaga?? Gtfo.
just some of her looks Xtina’s done in her life. BEFORE GAGA.
Wait, didn’t Xtina do this, too?
Google is a wondrous invention, don’t cha think?
