Few people in this decade have caused such controversy and conversation as the infamous Lady Gaga. Stefani Germanotta (her actual name) was born a Roman Catholic around in 1986. Sadly, she bought into the idea that you don’t need God or religion in order to be happy. So, she now lives in sin and blasphemy.
The funny thing about her is that she proudly proclaims that she was “born this way” and that she knows exactly who she is. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Her actions speak louder than all of her lies. She is a soul searching for meaning in a world that, without God in it, has become meaningless. By trying all her desperate stunts and shocking concepts, she is tying to become someone who will last. Searching for immortality. In losing her faith, she has lost herself. Her meaning.
The world has said that in following a religion, you lose yourself. They see us as puppets of some pastor or pope, incapable of our own thought. We need to be set free from this, they say, and so ply us at every corner with temptations designed to get us away from God. But nothing could be farther form the truth! In Christ, and only in Christ, do we humans reach our full potential. A deformed hag became a mystic (Margaret of Castille.) A slow, fat boy became the greatest theologian of the Church (Thomas Aquinas.) The world would see these people as useless, because this culture only sees the outside. But God sees everyone as they are meant to be, beautiful or ugly, fat or thin, smart or ugly.
Stefani caved in. And now, she is trying to find her place in the world. Trying on different roles, different outfits. Being gay or bi or dressed in meat, only to prove that she is worthwhile. But she lost the only thing that gave her meaning, gave her worth. So she searches for something that is right in front of her green-painted nose, only she refuses to see it.
You think about the rest.
Love to all!
