When lady Gaga first took the stage most people were shocked by creative touch to her shows. She has became famous for her lyrics and wardrobe but is she also becoming famous in the world of contemporary feminism? This article brings to attention that she is indeed bringing up issues to the public and bluntly stating her views on subjects that are most definitely related to feminism. It was without a doubt for instance that she shocked the world when she appeared to an award show wearing nothing but meat as her dress. She was criticized for doing so, but initially people were not aware of her actual point behind wearing the meat dress. I was one of those people and I actually did not see her interview with Elen Degeneres where she explains the statement she was trying to make about homosexuality discrimination. Therefore, it was not till reading this article that I knew... however obviously the meat dress has not been even close to the only thing this woman has done that pertains to the feminist movement. Her lyrics, statements, and other specific outfits are all representing feminism. The question is though, is it always in a positive way?? I like how the article stirs up the point of lady Gaga being so asexual and how she may be making a statement that in order to be a female icon one needs to be attractive and display themselves in similar ways as she does.
