Lady Gaga Has Even More Weird Thoughts On What It Means To Be A Feminist
9:30 am, November 2nd | by Laura Donovan
Speaking to Stylist about whether “make-up and feminism [can] ever truly be friends,” (huh?), the pop star said:
You know what’s so funny is, I actually think there’s a new feminism that is completely different and I don’t think either is better or worse. Any kind of feminist has valid views for herself about what it means to be a feminist, but, as a new-age feminist, I would say I quite like the transference of strength I feel by submitting to a man – being under him. I actually wrote a song about it on my album, it’s called GUY and it stands for Go Under You. So wearing make-up, smelling delicious and having suckable, kissable, edible things between your limbs is something I find strengthening because I know that when I pick the right guy, I can let him have it. Some women feel oppressed by make-up and clothing, and here’s to them, they have every right to feel that way as well.
There’s definitely something special about feeling well-groomed, confident, and desirable, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone provide an answer like that. It shouldn’t be a huge surprise though, as the “Just Dance” crooner said a couple years ago:
I’m not a feminist. I hail men, I love men, I celebrate American male culture– beer, bars, and muscle cars.
Whatever you do, don’t come between Gaga and her guys, not even in the name of feminism.
