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 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!!!

In this song Lady Gaga is talking about loving who you are no matter what. She is also stating that being homosexual, transsexual, or bisexual is not a sin because they were "born that way". Also, when she refers to "captial H-I-M" I believe she is talking about God; meaning God will love you no matter who you are

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.

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

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.

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

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.
