Lady Gaga Is Latest Celeb to Abuse Catholic Imagery in Hollywood's 'War on Religion'
FOX ^ | June 11, 2010 | Hollie McKay

Queen of controversy Lady Gaga is making headlines for yet another racy video featuring highly sexualized material combined with religious imagery. But while some argue Gaga has crossed the line between edgy and tasteless, her use of distorted Catholic imagery speaks to a rising trend in Hollywood.

The pop princess, real name Stefani Germanotta, recently released the music video for her single “Alejandro” and has sparked quite the outcry given its saturation of controversial imagery, including her swallowing rosary beads in a latex-version of a nun’s habit, holding the crucifix in front of her crotch and simulating group sex with a bunch of beefed-up men, who are nearly naked save for underwear and high heels.

Even fellow songstress Katy Perry, who comes from a religious upbringing, hinted her disdain for the music video last weekend when she tweeted, "Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.”

Lady Gaga needs to suffer in silence...

she is successful....she went to Catholic School.

she should thank Catholic School for making her a success.

As if Katy Perry—the woman who was made famous by her song about lesbian love—has any right to chide another artist about inappropriate artistry.

Statement: "Lady Gaga Is Latest Celeb to Abuse Catholic Imagery in Hollywood's 'War on Religion'"

Response: It is NOT a war against religion it is a war against Christianity and the civilization with which it is inextricably bound.

I hate these things. Not because they would damage religion itself, or God, in any way. But they betray an utter disrespect/hate for others’ deep and most private feelings. I see Madonna, GaGa and their ilk as mere narcissists, loveless and meaningless mental midgets.

The less said about them, the better.

Are you sure? She looks like a boy and I always see her at some homosexual rally or another.

“Lady GaGa” - (what is lady-like or “gaga” about her???) is a repetitive purveyor of sex-injected crappy and unoriginal pop music.

At least she has come right out and said publicly she doesn’t condone it. More than can be said about the rest of entertainment industry.

I give her props for doing so, even if she did sing about kissing a girl.

I am not a fan of her per se, although I like some of her music. The homoerotic dancer with moe hair cuts in the video is so blase and cliche is pretty much easy to ignore. The only scene which I felt was really unnecessary is when she swallows the cruxific. That part she could have easily done without. The rest of it is so silly like an bad Italian Federico Fellini movie.

The gay community actually trashed her for the song.

Doing so just makes her a hypocrite. It’s not like she’s a role model of Catholic piety...

Her music, her actions, the way she dresses, and her shacking up with the anti-American Russell Brand all betray her Catholic heritage.

The irony is that the church gave her the opportunity to develop her singing talent.
