An open letter to those that have claimed Born This Way is, musically, “a mess of an album”:
The basic principle behind the album is to hint at the creation of a social space (metaphorically represented by G.O.A.T.) that encompasses all individuals:
No matter gay, straight, or bi, Lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive. No matter black, white or beige Chola or orient made, I’m on the right track baby, I was born to be brave.
So yes, tell me how Gaga mixing together
rock and roll
(in a way where the songs brilliantly complement each other while working together to create the spirit of “mixed co-existence” that Gaga promotes socially and politically)
isn’t an incredible, top-notch artistic methodology to encapsulate the sociopolitical implications of Born This Way and embed them in the very form of her music.
