Was Lady Gaga "Born This Way" ?.

When I first heard Lady Gaga, back in 2008 with her 1st single "Just Dance" i knew it was going to become a hit ... and guess what? it did. After "Poker Face" becoming a hit too,  it make me realize that this girl would become a force in Pop music, but for some how it seems that we have been attracted more to her life style than her music, or the fact that her music and videos have become her life style.

For a while now, there has been a hype over the release of her new single "Born This Way", a supposed anthem for all different people, she sings about "Lesbians, Gays, White, Black, Drags, Etc" been born that way (Not sure about the Drags), but anyway more than a political statement or anthem, i think that is all about selling records, just because for me it felt short and empty, the production of the song, the tempo and even the lyrics are not great and doesn't send the essence of the message, it doesn't come thru and it sound like Madonna's "Express Yourself" , if the idea was to make a record like "I Will Survive" or in the lines of "Beautiful", then it is a complete failure.

I'm not a huge fan of Gaga, but i appreciate her first records like "Just Dance", "Poker Face", "Bad Romance" but this one doesn't live up to the expectations .... What do you think? Is it a Madonna Rip-Off? Did the hype overshadowed the song? or Did Lady Gaga raised bar to high?.

Listen you be the Judge.

Lo q me encanta de Lady Gaga es su excentricidad. la cancion no es mala, pero perdio un poco su toque, se fue mas a lo Madonna. tanto a la presentacion como la cancion le falta la energia y la rareza a la q gaga nos tenia acostumbrados. El toque "dramatico" para ser mas exactos..
