Rick Genest, a model who was known for his head-to-toe tattoos and for appearing in the music video for Lady Gaga’s 2011 song “Born This Way,” has died at 32.

Dulcedo Management, which represented him, confirmed his death on its Facebook page on Thursday but did not say where or precisely when he died. He lived in Montreal.

On her Twitter account, Lady Gaga said the cause was suicide, and that it was “beyond devastating.”

“We have to work harder to change the culture, bring Mental Health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it,” she wrote.

Did he, perhaps, have trouble getting a job?

...apparently without a sense of irony...

He was NOT born that way!!!

Of course, the Hollywood vampire (in this case, Gaga) was perfectly willing to cash in on his mental illness when it was profitable for her, rather than getting him help...

It appears we are on the road to normalizing psychopathology: homosexuality, gender dysphoria, whatever you call what this poor freak did to himself, etc. So “bringing metal health to the forefront” apparently means erasing the concept of metal illness.

When will this tattooing crap end? There’s a reason Jews and Catholics proscribe it.

““We have to work harder to change the culture, bring Mental Health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it,” she wrote.”

Gaga and other liberals allow troubled people to hide behind tats, homosexuality, and other crap. They enable the mentally ill. We used to help them, now we tell them it’s OK.

It’s odd how such self contradictory attitudes end up dissolving themselves.

One of Gaga’s more recent pop songs is the diner-fare, annoying sounding “The Cure.” Whether her idea of a cure is right, the idea that one might be needed opens the door to greater discussion.

It has become harder and harder to distinguish between going mad and “artistic license.”

Demons influenced/controlled him.
Kinda like that fat woman who lived on her sofa for 20+ years.
