New Lady Gaga Song, Born This Way, is Defiant, Upbeat Anthem

gaga e1297455992980Little Monsters and fans of music in general have been waiting for a new Lady Gaga song since, well, the release of Gaga’s last album, and it is finally here.  The new Lady Gaga song, “Born This Way,” is the first single from Gaga’s upcoming album of the same name.  If the new Lady Gaga song is any indication of what Born This Way will bring, then be prepared for a blitz of highly danceable, sing-along-in-your-bedroom anthems.

Reaction to the new Lady Gaga song hasn’t all been positive, but “Born This Way” is a somewhat unsurprising and logical extension of Gaga’s discography to date.  It has pop appeal, a simple but seductive hook, and the “Born This Waylyrics speak with pride to Gaga’s Little Monsters.  The new Lady Gaga song is at once a tribute to Lady Gaga’s fans and a defiant statement of a lifestyle that has been looked down upon for years.

Despite the negative reviews of “Born This Way,” the new Lady Gaga song shows that Gaga is dedicated to supporting her fan base and helping an “alternative” lifestyle earn mainstream acceptance.  To have an LGBTQ-friendly anthem become a smash hit in a nation that can still be surprisingly close-minded is a massive success.
