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...

    The song is pretty easy to interpret, but the video on the other hand... It kinda scared me XD
    So at the beginning, she rambles about the birth of something, but right before the music starts is what freaked me out. "But how can I protect something so perfect without evil," Meh, something along those lines. I think she means giving in to the evil, HIM and simultaneously giving up him, God, for herself.
    Also, in bad romance, she gives herself up as a slave to what I interpreted as Satan to get what she needed: fame. In born this way, she gave up good for evil to protect the "perfection" mentioned earlier. The "born this way" part was probably stating that she was born to protect this perfection, or fame.

    Of course, she could just be TRYING to get us to trip out. Worked with me. Shoot, I'm tripping MYSELF out now xD

    iLove lady gaga believe me but i dont like the fact that she believes people were born the way we are, you are not born gay lesbian or bi, you choose to follow that route. lady gaga doesnt believe in god she said so herself."it doesnt matter if you love him or CAPITAL HIM"? ok whats that about is him supposed to be God and H-I-M supposed to be the devil. ever since she released alejandro her videos have seemed very evil. if you notice the video alejandro has an upside down cross and born this way shes like dressed up very evil-ish and very satanic like. i dont know what shes trying to say through her messages but its just so wierd that all of a sudden shes doing this. is she mad at god? yes god made us perfectly, we are beautiful in our way, god makes no mistakes, respect your youth, there is nothing wrong with loving who you are, give yourself prudence and love your friends, dont live in regret YES!!! all those things are true and righteous....but the fact that shes trying to say that we are born this way yes we are born beautiful, different colors and ethnicities but we are not bron gay, transgender, bi, lesbian those are decisions. i love lady gaga i own every single record demo EVERYTHING! i love her but this record has me very dissapointed. im sorry please dont hate me.

    It is Much like “We R Who We R,” and “Firework,” by Katy Perry, “Born This Way” is about being comfortable with who one is. This theme fits in perfectly with Lady Gaga’s personality as she is far from being “normal.”

    With a previously unseen religious theme, Lady Gaga sends the same message to everybody whether they are “gay, straight or bi: ” “[you’re] beautiful in a way, ‘cause God makes no mistakes,” so “rejoice and love yourself today.”

    Well personally i think the video was extremely out there. lyrics, comprehendable.

    basically what she is saying is no matter what or who you are you should love your self.
    God made you that way for a reason and he does not make a mistake on what he creates.
    Now excuse me if some of you out there are not very religious or so to speak but I think personally God called on Lady gaga to write that song because many people out there dont appreciate who they are, and you should love yourself because i mean if you cant even love yourself who do you think would want to love you just the same?
    My intake is that you should also see the glass half full rather then half empty, as in see your self beautiful in your own way and not try to be beautiful the way the media wants you to be beautiful. all in all great song and wonderful meaning

    I think she's talking about gays or trans to not be afraid to love who they are...

    Don't be a drag, just be a queen

    rejoice the truth

    A different lover is not a sin

    I think what Lady gaga is saying is that everyone was born in someway and some are bad and some not but either way you shouldn't be ashamed of who you are because thats just the way you were born.

    I think She is talking about hoe everyone is born different and perfect in their own way. And her struggle with believing that.
