Lady Gaga is Confused

Lady Gaga, in a recent interview with Fuse about misogyny and homophobia:

Lady Gaga on why she’s not a feminist:

Someone seriously needs to let her know that many of the values she has expressed clearly align with feminism, and that she should consider getting on board. Spreading the idea that they’re different is not only ignorant but really disappointing. Lady Gaga has the potential to seriously raise some awareness about feminism, here.

I think I will write a strongly worded letter…

    Ughh, it kills me. I love Lady Gaga, and she is SO a feminist, she just needs someone to explain it to her.

  • SarahC @ at 7:29 pm, November 23rd, 2009

    I’m totally with you, Zoe. Somebody needs to send her a link to the Feminism 101 blog over on the right side of the screen. Be like, honey, you a feminist, whether you like it or not.

    I can’t believe he asked her that though!
    That was a brilliant answer she gave and immediately he asks “are you a feminist?”
    I don’t think she even has to identify as one, because she’s raising awareness for the same issues in her own way. She’s not a feminist she’s a rockstar.

    Why is she called Lady Gaga?

    Please, let’s get a letter together to explain what feminism truly is BY FEMINISTS, and tell her that the grandmothers of this country went thru so much so that a woman like HER could go to COLLEGE (which she did), could be an entertainer with control over her work.
    I think we could seriously not only help her realize that feminism is important in everyone’s life, not just women and that coming from NEW YORK, i expect her to be exposed to it.
    And with her knoweledgeable about feminism, she will definitely speak about how it should be expected that everyone should see women as valueable humans, not pieces of meat or mindless idiots

  • Tinnie @ at 2:53 am, December 1st, 2009

    srry i totally rambled without editing, i just hope we can unite as young feminists who DO listen to modern pop like her’s and write a letter to her

  • Allison @ at 10:37 pm, December 2nd, 2009

    @Tinnie Just saying, I have never met _anyone_ who saw all women as pieces of meat or mindless idiots.

    I go through gossips all over, that very little in Drag queen Gaga is unique and that she is usually a copycat :-( I nonetheless love Lady Gaga coZ she is awesome!

  • Heather @ at 1:52 pm, March 26th, 2010

    Lady Gaga is most certainly NOT confused. She knows what she believes, and she is simply rejecting a label that has become very emotionally loaded in our culture. “Feminist” means different things to different people – for some it means a strong woman, for others it means a man-hater. She is purposely rejecting the label because she wants you to listen to what she says, not slap a label on her.

  • Laura @ at 2:26 pm, June 2nd, 2010

    You will be happy to know that in a recent interview with the times she did in fact label herself as a feminist:

  • Grey @ at 2:39 am, July 5th, 2010

    I don’t like Lady Gaga’s music, but I do agree with her views. And it is annoying that she doesn’t identify as a feminist (though I do hope Laura is right when she says Gaga changed her mind).
