Anonymous asked: but be real with me for a second, why does lady gaga matter so much to you? what is it about her that all of you love so much?
well I cant speak for anyone else, but personally like I went through a whole lot of ugly shit as a teenager that still affects me and I’ve had serious body image issues since i was like 9 or 10 and basically gaga’s message and music (esp. BTW) really stuck with me and I just have always felt this really strong connection to not only her music but also her as a person. She’s kind of like an underdog who made it in an industry that was so focused on being cookie cutter and perfect for so long but she managed to fly in with her meat dress and unconventional beauty and weird outfits and break the mold. Since I’ve always felt less valuable as a person because of my weight and because of who i am and i’ve always felt out of place and weird, watching her be herself and be able to find success that really resonated with me. she’s like the cool older sister or best friend I always wanted if that makes any sense? ive gained a lot of important things including confidence and self acceptance, made some awesome friends and had some amazing experiences all because of her. my life would be so basic and boring if I had never discovered gaga and unless she does something majorly unforgivably problematic i will continue to love that bitch until the very end of my existence.
