Quote of the day

"Yes I am. I am a feminist. I reject wholeheartedly the way we are taught to perceive women. The beauty of women, how a woman should act or behave. Women are strong and fragile. Women are beautiful and ugly. We are soft spoken and loud, all at once. There is something min-controlling about the way we're taught to view women. My work, both visually and musically, is a rejection of all those things. And most importantly a quest. It's exciting because all of the avant-garde clothing, and musical style and lyrics that at one time was considered shocking or unacceptable are now trendy. Perhaps we can make women's rights trendy. Strength, feminism, security, the wisdom of the woman. Let' make that trendy."       -Lady Gaga.

From the Showstudio interview. Go Gaga!

  2. I live next door to a person I wouldn't call a woman... she's very man-like and has a lot of problems; is very rude and horrible. I have tried to be nice and courteous to her and her family without success.

    Gaga, I understand where you're coming from in every way, but I just can't see this woman - this particular one - the same way you do or would.

    I too love to sing, play music (either on the stereo or on my piano) and be an artist through painting and photography and collage. Life is out there for us women to live and enjoy and conquer... to sip at the cup of life and breath in the fresh air we deserve is what I feel is our right! :)
