Lady Gaga Is Influential With Her Music
Don't Worry You Were Born That Way
If you were sleeping under a rock then you may not know that Lady Gaga held a concert yesterday, which was featured at a football game. Gaga slayed the stage singing her greatest hits and reminded those who may have forgotten that she is a great performer. We were reminded of Gaga's great music and how influential she can be. Gaga has always been a great role model for young girls to look up to. Here are three important messages that she has taught young girls over the years.
Two years ago Gaga revealed that she had been raped at the age of 19 and acquired PTSD because of it. It is always brave for women to come out and speak on such a sensitive topic. Especially when there is always a chance that she may not be believed or ridiculed. We're sure this helped many girls who were victims of sexual abuse not feel so alone in their pain.
Never Give up
Gaga is not an overnight star, it took years before she was even recognized by a label. She went to NYU’s conservatory to study music only to drop out two years later to try and make it as a musician. Gaga was apart of a band that would break up a few years later. Record labels would tell her that she didn't have the right look, the right sound and that she could never make a hit. Gaga never gave up and look at her now.
Just be yourself
In 2011 Gaga released the ultimate love yourself anthem called, "Born This Way." Telling people no matter how you were born, you were born that way for a reason, so be happy! Gaga never tried (despite some rumors) to be anyone else, but herself.
If there is anything you take from Mother monster it should be these words, which you should sing to comfort yourself on a bad day,
“I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive!"
