Lady Gaga has made a a name for herself not only with her own brand of funk but she has also established herself as a very vocal activist for gay rights and general "loving yourself" messages.
Well, it appears that even the most PC stars have their slips and Gaga had a HUGE slip using the word "retarded" to describe the people that are saying that she copied Madonna's "Express Yourself," on her track "Born This Way." But as soon as she let the word slip reactions all over the net were not good. Once she heard it was becoming a "big deal" she took to the internet to "clean her name."
She released this statement via Perez Hilton:
"I consider it part of my life's work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance. My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional. An honest mistake, requires honesty to make. Whether life's disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today."
Ugghhh! A simple "I'm sorry" would have done. I am really starting to bore of Gaga and her "I am the mother of acceptance" crap. Just make good music and let that speak for itself! Do you think it was wrong for her to have used the word "retarded" or do you think it's much ado about nothing? You decide.
