The Transendentalist That Speaks Through Her Music.....
Lady Gaga is a transcendentalist throughout the lyrics in her music. Her main reason for becoming a famous singer was to teach people in her music that it's okay to be a "FREAK."
Lady Gaga is a transcendentalist because she is the definition of being yourself. In all her songs she explains the importance of free thought and confidence. Her lyrics all have meaning to society today; her biggest problem with the world today is bullying and people that tell you how to live your life. Her hit song "Born This Way," have lyrics that speak to the world. The lyrics "There's nothing wrong with loving who you are," "left you outcast, bullied, or teased." and "I was born this way." are great examples of her telling people that it’s okay to be different. Everyone is born different and should be confident about it. These lyrics go along with free thought also, because again the lyrics say that it's okay to be you and think for yourself. Just because other people are doing something, doesn't mean you have to. Lady Gaga is also a transcendentalist because she is an importance to nature. She is a role model to people, and she makes sure to let all her fans know that she cares about them. Before leaving her concert on October, 15th 2010 she told her crowd "When you leave here tonight, just know that at least one person believes in you." She is a huge inspiration to people all over, and in today’s society she is the type of person we need, to look up to. She is a huge inspiration to everyone; in every song she proceeds to explains the importance of free thought and confidence. Nobody is the same person and everyone should be their own person, always.
