Singing while being pinned to a cross. I know a hell of a lot of people who would be upset with that, no matter what kind of hypocritical comments she has made (which she has made plenty) that doesn't take away the significance of what she believes in.
Did you even get the message behind the performance? it wasn't blasphemous at all.
Most people would be intrigued to check out the performance based off the photo alone, then state their feelings on how they feel about the imagery. Unless one is immensely conservative...and the average person isn't.
I'm not a fan of this performance. I like the message, but I don't think she went about conveying it the right way. The disco cross is pretty though.
really? I thought the concept was perfect and the message wouldn't have been the same without the cross (in my opinion), esp. since she added bible quotes into the performance. She sounded great though.
"There is a segment in my show where three of my dancers 'confess' or share harrowing experiences from their childhood that they ultimately overcame. My 'confession' follows and takes place on a Crucifix that I ultimately come down from. This is not a mocking of the church. It is no different than a person wearing a Cross or 'Taking Up the Cross' as it says in the Bible. My performance is neither anti-Christian, sacrilegious or blasphemous. Rather, it is my plea to the audience to encourage mankind to help one another and to see the world as a unified whole. I believe in my heart that if Jesus were alive today he would be doing the same thing.
My specific intent is to bring attention to the millions of children in Africa who are dying every day, and are living without care, without medicine and without hope. I am asking people to open their hearts and minds to get involved in whatever way they can. The song ends with a quote from the Bible's Book of Matthew: 'For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was naked and you gave me clothing. I was sick and you took care of me and God replied, 'Whatever you did for the least of my brothers... you did it to me.'
Please do not pass judgment without seeing my show."
I love Gaga's art and how she leaves it open for interpretation but sometimes I wish she would explain some of her art in depth like Madonna explained her 'Live to tell' performance. Not for me, but more so for the average person who isn't a fan to help them better understand her concepts since there's so many misconceptions about her.
I don't know why people give so much attention to Porcelain or her opinions.
Her single sales were never great to begin with and she's already on a decline before her debut album,
and if that sells as much as I think it will, she'll probably get dropped.
