I Like it Rough Lyrics

Your love is nothing I can't fight,
Can't sleep with the man who dims my shine.

I'm in the bedroom,
With tissues and when,
I know you're outside banging then I won't let you in.
'Cause it's a hard life, with love in the world,
And I'm a...

    The recording artist is teaching children that the only way to succeed is to be a bully asshole. Typical entertainment industry propaganda. Because in Hollywood it's true that is the only way to make it. Today, Hollywood. Tomorrow, the world. It is because of crap like this that we have 5 year olds saying "Get a life, loser." I figure the species has about one decade maximum left before it completely destroys itself, thanks to these fashionable bullies in Hollywood. I say that as a person who was born/raised in Hollywood. Say "no" to Hollywood & other pro-active capitalists (re: business bullies) or expect the species to be gone by one decade from now. Probably sooner.

    The song was written about addiction and in particular "masochist love" — being in love with people that are not good for you. The song deal about Lady Gaga's ex-boyfriend in a reflection about "Why does she likes it rough ?"

    This song isn't about sex at all. It is a song about someone who feels like they are difficult to love, and when someone finally is willing to go the length, she questions if "he means it" and isnt willing to let him in. However, she starts questioning why she is so guarded in the first place.

    She advises women who are being beaten, abused, raped or held captive by men, to just shut up and enjoy it because it is so cool and sexy to have your man beat you senseless. She thinks tht being beaten into a coma would be the ultimate high, even better than being rap3d by one's mother with a dildo.

    Possibly Gaga is using sex as a metaphor for life. Maybe "the road of life" with the man she loves has not always been smooth and peaceful. She could have experienced bumps, potholes, sharp curves, detours, "abortion", ditches, bands of rancid gypsies, "delusions", burning buildings, flat tires, abuse, a type of washboard terrain, divorces, really steep hills, death, "addiction", roadkill, wars, "incest", a spot of pain, hurricanes, cliffs, low-flying nazi jackal buzzards, tollbooths, etc, etc. These things can occur in any one of our lives. As we make our way past these things they slowly fade to the corner of our working eye. Often we rubber-neck to look again and blurt, "What was THAT? Splattered moist bovine entrails or the past several years?" Gaga is saying that she doesn't need everything to be "perfect" with her man all of the time. She LIKES it exciting.

    My grandmother (named gaga) was sweet and adorable, 5'2" and 89 pounds soaking wet. My grandfather (named lady) was 6'5", big boned and deafer than dirt. When I was a kid, each time we went over to their house, all I could think of was how in the world they had sex. With one swift move my granpa could have broken my grandma into quarters. While we sat with them and had ice tea, my mind was up in their bedroom, running through the scene. If during the act she had whispered into his navel, "oooh big lady, do that again" he'd bellow "WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR A GOD DAMNED WORD YOU ARE SAYING." She'd try again sweetly, "Oh yeah, that felt sooo good" and he'd holler "Oh for GOD'S SAKE gaga SPEAK UP!" My 14 year old head deduced that my grandparents could only have successfully fornicated with a bullhorn. That's rough sex.

    Maybe fornicate is the wrong word.

    The song is about the way she likes her sex. Rough. And others always seem to question her and she just doesnt know why she likes it rough, they have her wondering.
