ARTPOP: Lady Gaga’s Latest Album of Hypersexualized Cacophonies
In addition, Lady Gaga is again selling a terrible message to young men and women. She’s telling my generation that they will be happy and fulfilled as human beings if they only just “liberated” themselves with the damaging libertine lifestyle. She is falsely selling the idea that hookups, which lead to heartaches, the spread of STD’s, and the perpetuation of female and male degradation, will make young people happy. She is also falsely telling young people that a chaotic lifestyle embodied by emotionally and psychologically scarring casual sex, drunkenness, and drug use will help them “reach their full potential.” To everyone in my generation, you deserve better than what this shock artist is selling you.
Despite the fact that my generation is known as the socially libertine generation, many young men and women are hungry for the truth. They know deep down inside that the lifestyle Lady Gaga is promoting leaves them feeling empty and unfulfilled. We must be there for them to provide them with the hope they need that Lady Gaga’s album will never provide them. We must fearlessly and confidently present them with better alternatives that celebrate their dignity as human beings.
In order for our society to turn away from Lady Gaga’s music and for young people to find the hope they need, we must do what we can to promote good artists and music that honor the beauty of humanity. In order to achieve cultural renewal, we must work together on the local level and through social media to spread the word about better alternatives to what Hollywood promotes. United by our voices, we can make a difference and heal our broken culture. Cultural renewal can only be achieved by us. Let’s make it happen.
