The club I was at last night played this song three times. Each time the crowd went wild and the dance floor was packed.

It was the gay anthem 22 yrs ago when it was called EXPRESS YOURSELF

Peer pressure, r2. It's like Black Swan - most people said they loved it, because it was hip. Secretly, people are like "Meh..."

The young gays love GaGa. They will stay with her regardless of where her career goes. We've seen it before: Cher, Madge, Mariah, Whitney. They will follow her to the ends of the earth.

It doesn't matter if you love him, Or capital H-I-M Just put your paws up 'cause you were born this way, baby
[Verse 1] My mama told me when I was young We are all born superstars
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on In the glass of her boudoir
"there's nothin wrong with lovin who you are" She said, "'cause he made you perfect, babe"
"so hold your head up girl and you'll go far, Listen to me when I say"
[Chorus] I'm beautiful in my way 'cause god makes no mistakes I'm on the right track baby I was born this way
Don't hide yourself in regret Just love yourself and you're set I'm on the right track baby I was born this way
[Post-chorus] Ooo there ain't no other way Baby I was born this way Baby I was born this way Ooo there ain't no other way Baby I was born- I'm on the right track baby I was born this way
Don't be a drag - just be a queen Don't be a drag - just be a queen Don't be a drag - just be a queen Don't be!
[Verse 2] Give yourself prudence And love your friends Subway kid, rejoice your truth
In the religion of the insecure I must be myself, respect my youth
A different lover is not a sin Believe capital h-i-m (hey hey hey) I love my life I love this record and Mi amore vole fe yah (love needs faith)

If Madonna doesn't get a co-writing credit she should sue. The song is EXPRESS YOURSELF.

Who do you think you Are? by the Spice Girls is better than this tripe. That should tell you something!

Does anyone else think she also was "influenced" a tad too much by Sylvester's "Born To Be Alive"?

Born To Be Alive was Patrick Hernandez--and don't you forget it!

Maybe when Will Smith acted like an idiot in his 20s it was cute, but enough is enough. He needs to grow the fuck up!

When I say born this way..I don't mean gay...I mean just better than you. Genetically, genealogically, physically...I could go on and on. Your parents thought I was "strange" but that is a compliment. Peasants think that way of the upper classes. It's gotta kill you to come by here after all of the years and know I have everything you'll never have...because, Baby, I was born this way and it is only going to get worse for you. Bwah!

Wow, when two year old failed Lady Gaga threads are being bumped up, you know DL has died.

What an odd conclusion to draw from a thread being bumped. Gurl, you a danger to yourself.

WTF does that even mean? I know boudoir is bedroom in French, but is glass supposed to be mirror? But why would she be in the mirror? Or is it just her fancy but nonsensical way of saying her mom used to do her hair and put makeup on her, which would be reflected off the mirror in her bedroom? If so, it's a stupid lyrics. It's trying too hard.

No, it's about how that felt. Art and pop is never literal. It is not science. Have a look at painting- do you see 'photographic realism'? No. Painting conveys essence and how something felt. Even Ansel Adams- do you think what he photographed was actually high exposure black and white, or perhaps more likely that he was communicating a particular experience? And no, I do not consider Gaga on par, but your logic is basic and dumb. As she said in the intro to one of her videos- "it's not that I have been dishonest, it's just that I loathe reality".

Why does anyone care if this song sounds anything like Express Yourself? There was a thread posted a while back that included a demo of Nothing Fails which proved Madonna's songwriting credits are in name only. She's the biggest pop fake on the planet! Not the Lady Gaga is any more authentic.
