WCW: Lady Gaga
We're crushing on Lady Gaga this Woman Crush Wednesday. Here's why!
HEY THERE and welcome to Woman Crush Wednesday, a weekly feature from MTV Breaks where we raise our glasses to all the fabulous females who are out there conquering life’s taboos and stereotypes, and who are just generally making the world a better place to live day by day.
Because regardless of looks, a woman that’s smart, motivated and ambitious is super-sexy and (let’s face it) we would.
So which sensational señorita are we celebrating (and crushing on majorly) today? Drumroll… it’s the one and only LADY GAGA! She’s the meat-wearing monster fanatic who’s made a commercial singing career into modern art. She’s had number one hits (including ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Pokerface’), number one albums and a never-ending glittering music career… but next year SHE’S GOING TO HEADLINE THE SUPERBOWL HALFTIME ON ONE OF THE BIGGEST STAGES IN THE WORLD.
Although Lady Gaga, otherwise known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (IKR), perhaps shot to fame so quickly because of her weird and wonderful image, she’s also no ordinary singer. She is classically trained, and proved it when she performed a ‘Sound of Music’ tribute at the 2015 Oscars for the film’s 50th anniversary. And it was INCREDIBLE.
What we love most about her though is that she always preaches THE best messages. In 2015 she released an amazing original song called ‘Till It Happens To You’ all about the horrors of going through sexual assault, with a portion of the proceeds going to survivors. She’s also always been a massive supporter of LGBTQ rights and empowerment. When ‘Poker Face’ won International Video of the Year, she accepted the award by tributing it to “God and the gays”. And, of course, she’s always been openly bisexual, which is so great.
In her words, she felt like a “freak” growing up, and wants to ”liberate” all her ‘little monsters’ (as her fans are called) who feel the same. Basically the list of reasons to love Lady Gaga goes on AND ON, and that’s why she’s clinched our Woman Crush Wednesday title this week. Of COURSE we fancy her… how could anyone not?!
HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYONE!
