Lady Gaga: Born This Way Meaning

Covered By: Glee Cast


Born This Way Lyrics

It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
'Cause you were born this way, baby

My mama told me when I was young
We're all born superstars
She rolled my hair, put my lipstick on
In the glass of her...

    I think that born this way means that you should love yourself for who you are, and that it doesn't matter if you're black or white, boy or girl, or straight, gay or lesbian. You need to except the fact that you are beautiful in YOUR way, and not trying to be who everyone wants you to be. If you make yourself the way that you want to be, then you are beautiful

    Some people need to get a life! They keep on going on and on about the Masonic symbolism and the devil worshipping and the gay is a choice or not crap. I think GaGa is first and foremost and artist whose artistic vision is always more than it seems. Like the great masterpiece of the world that makes you wonder what their meaning is and what the artist motives were etc, her lyrics and videos also make people talk about them and interpret them as they like. There is a reason why her music, lyrics and videos create such a strong reaction on people and we can’t stop talking about them. I don’t think she is trying to mind-control anyone or try to turn us subjects of a “secret world-dominating society”.

    Oh and I’m a Christian, I grew up in a Christian home, I’ve read the bible like a thousand times and I have a very strong faith but I wanna apologize for those close-minded people who are still living in the middle ages and comment (without proper knowledge) on whether being gay is a choice and that being gay is a sin and you’ll burn in hell for it. Because of people like those, I struggled so much for feeling attracted to my same sex. One story short I’m bisexual and a Christian and I don’t think the God that send his only son to die for my sins so I can be free and have eternal life is going to punish me in hell for feelings I started having when I was 5, and that are just natural to me, not a choice. I’ve learnt to accept who I am and if my human parents can love unconditionally even though “homosexuality is a sin”, how much more love you think my heavenly father is feeling for me. Religion is what killed Jesus and it divides us, but Jesus came to save us and unite us so stop repeating what some priest said at your church and read the bible for yourself and start a personal relationship with him. And stop giving us Christians a bad name!!!

    Ps. The bible says that we should respect other people even is their beliefs or lifestyles are different from ours, that is how you are supposed to spot a good Christian, so stop shoving your thoughts down other peoples throats. Respect others!

    Ciao y besos a todos!!!

    Whoever came up with this capital HIM business is speaking crap (pardon the french), she obviously means capital H lowercase i m. Somehow 3rd graders understand how to spell when told to spell capitol (insert whatever word here). They don't need to be told when to lowercase, its a silent understanding.

    She is just telling you to love yourself for who you are, whatever race or sexuality.

    Capital H.I.M. refers to His IMPERIAL majesty Haile Selassie I, the emperor of Ethiopia whom Rastafarians believe was and is the incarnation of Jesus Christ, so my interpretation is that she is suggesting that no matter what your faith is or whom you worship, we are all equal.

    This song is a very good example of a song with social commentary because it conveys a very obvious message. The song is about accepting yourself regardless of where you come from or your appearance and being who you are, not trying to change yourself to fit in. The song also is about that everybody is free to make their own decisions and people will support you instead of judge. In this song Lady Gaga is encouraging people to be themselves and I think it’s a great message to convey to society.

    I think it is about being who you are, regardless of what you look like or who you choose to love. Everyone is their own person and this song reminds us of that. No one forces us to make the decisions that we make. I'm autistic and this is my theme song. For those who are offended by the lyrics, don't be a drag; just be a queen.

    Born this way is about:

    1. loving yourself and being proud

    2. being born over and over again until you find the most fantastic part of yourself, that makes you the happinest.

    3. Lady gaga shows that she loves her little monsters like a mother her kids. no matter how they are and from the bottom of her heart.

    Lady Gag is like Madonna, Cher, Liza Manelli, Barbra Streisand, Kathy Griffin--in that they love to pander to the gay crowd an order to become filthy rich while their minions become dirt poor buying all their over-the-top, over-rated and over-priced concert tickets, DVDs, CDs, movies, ringtones, t-shirts, perfume, Kmart inspired garments, bedspreads, house paint, pillows, shoes, diet pills. The list is endless. Ever wonder why "they" make millions for a single, one night appearance and you can't even make rent? This is not happenchance. This is preordained. Not by God, not by Target or Walmart but by the marketing department of any one of the large studios. Its a no-brainer. The formula is a proven gold mine.

    Said formula: Pretend you're enamored with the gay lifestyle by saying and doing all the things gay people love to hear or see such as: "...you go bitch", "...hey girlfriend" or wear loud and wild and colorful flowing clothers with a copious about of cleavage showing or make sexual references of ANY kind, especially homosexual ones.

    See folks; "Celebrity" performers such as Madonna and Gaga are first and foremost attracted to sex---then people. Starting to get my drift?

    When Lady Gaga et al. realizes that the only group that has money at the end of the day are gay folk, this is when the phony gay-pandering kicks in. Mix some tawdry remarks and an abundant amount of tits and ass (albeit good looking ass),and a customer base of mostly free-wheeling AND free spending single people who like booze, well the cocktail for separating you from your wallet has been poured.

    One last brain fart. "Born this Way"

    One last brain fart. "Born this Way" was conceived and masterminded by the gay lobbist in Hollywood, SF, Miami, NY and Fargo ND, an order to stop the perceived notion that gay kids are bullied more then "regular kids" and that "gaykids" need special protection from Hag Hating Hetros.

    All the above mentioned "ladies" have collectively come to the same conclusion in that if they can pretend to be on the "gay side" on issues then the money flows from
    one wallet or clutch into another bigger wallet or clutch.

    There is no more literal songs from Gaga like Born This Way. The message is very accurate and easy to understand. Love who you are regardless of what others think or say. Everyone is born who they were meant to be, whether it is one's destiny to be Gay, Straight or Bisexual, Lesbian or Transgendered life. Don't hide yourself in regrets or mistakes from your past, just love yourself today and everything will be okay. Honor and cherish the superstar that we are all born to be, and express it, but don't hide who you are.

    Lady Gaga was interpreting that she doesn't care if she stands out. She doesn't care if people don't like the way she looks because she likes how she looks. She doesn't judge people if they are Black/White, Gay/Lesbian, or any other race. She accepts everyone for who they are from the outside. It only matters if they are a bitch then she judges them. But mainly she means to be who you are!

    This is about Gaga's love in God and he is perfect and makes us with perfect "flaws" if you will. That can't keep us from loving and understanding. we are who we are because of H-I-M

    This song is About being ok with who u r.lez,bi.but I don't belive it.if God wanted men to be together.he wud ave given them organs that fit in each other,nd I also belive as jesus taught,that even straight sex outside marriage is a sin,nd all sinners wil find themselves in HELL.oh nd I certainly don't belive people were born gay,people think that because they haven't come in contact or don't love their maker-GOD,as he loves them.And think about this,if sex,bi or straight was right in the eyes of GOD,sodom and gomorah would not have been destroyed.
    Its like sodom and gomorah and this present generation are so identical,if GOD doesn't judge the horible sin of this generation,He will have to appologize to sodom and gomorah,th

    Shes talking about gays being born that way which is complete bs. Why would God make you born gay which is a sin then send you to hell for it? People choose to be gay. Scientists have done numerous studies on this and the fact is nobody is born gay.

    Let me say a few things first:
    1-One of my friends is gay, I DON'T CARE!
    2-I am a Christian, so's Ms. Gaga
    3-I'm a little monster.

    Look, I don't care about gayness, I know gay people and I don't care. Sure, I'll never be gay, but like I said, my friend's gay. Everyone hates her but I like her.

    Born this way is saying, "This is how you are! Celebrate it! You are an amazing gift from God and don't let anyone tell you different!"

    I just wanna say, some things Gaga does is bad. But she is an artist and only she knows what it means. We could all be teribly wrong in our interpritations, only Mama Monster knows.

    i think this song is the best example for showing everyone that they should never feel insecure about themselves.I have felt insecure and people have made made me feel insecure about how I am. Now i dont let it bother me anymore. If someone gets in my way i say "u cant say that about me cuz u cant prove ot that it is true" or "i dont care what u think about me. as long as i have positive feelings bout myself then i am fine." thank you Lady Gaga sooo so so so soo much 4 teaching me no matter what thqt i will always be beautiful in my own way cuz God makes no mistakes and i was born this way 4 a reason. to live my life!!!paws up!!!:)
