Lady Gaga: Born This Way Meaning
Covered By: Glee Cast
Born This Way Lyrics
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 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.

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 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

Come on people! This song is NOT about anything religious, i.e. Jesus punishing those who are gay, or bisexual, or transgender, or something, this song is about being yourself and accepting the fact that you cannot change it if you are born with some quirks. Also, one other thing. If you are actually bothering to read this, then I have something important. I am of Jewish faith. I am different from others. I stand out in my whole neighborhood. I was born that way. I can’t change what other people think about it, but I can accept the fact that I was born this way, baby!

She says that God didn’t make a mistake making her the way she is. She was born that way and are taking pride in that The subway kid is also a play of the milkway man/subway sand-witches, referring to children who are neglected by parents of industrialisation and marketing schemes. The “I love this record” part may be a reference to “Just Dance”. Evergreen might also be referencing the colour of an American bank note. i believe she says “transgender”. “transgend*red” is an offensive term
This beautiful song is about not being ashamed of who you are because, no matter who you are you are amazing. LGBTQ is not wrong, never has been and never will be. For all those idiots who believe otherwise, open your eyes, this is 2018.
Some of my friends are bi-sexual, two are lesbian and one is transgender. I love them all heaps and Lady Gaga sent the most incredible message to all with this song.

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.

There is nothing wrong with who you are you were born the way you are and no matter who you are.

Somebody had told me that the meaning of Capital H I M was His Infernal Majesty....

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.

I think the meaning of this song is we are strong because of god and our mother :).

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
