Peter LaBarbera must be behind on his gay magazine reading, because he’s currently freaking out about a Lady Gaga interview in the “homosexualist magazine” OUT* from September of 2009. Yes, Gaga said some things in that magazine LAST YEAR that scared Peter LaBarbera so much THIS YEAR that he had to quote them in multi-colored bold print! Let’s have a look at the Americans For Truth version of Lady Gaga’s quote in the “homosexualist” magazine, shall we?
Her devotion to gay culture is unparalleled by any other artist operating at her level of visibility or success. “When I started in the mainstream it was the gays that lifted me up,”she says. “I committed myself to them and they committed themselves to me, and because of the gay community I’m where I am today.” Earlier this year, in her acceptance speech for her MuchMusic award for best international video, Lady Gaga thanked “God and the gays.” Before agreeing to tour with Kanye West this fall, Gaga told the rapper, “I just want to be clear before we decide to do this together: I’m gay. My music is gay. My show is gay. And I love that it’s gay. And I love my gay fans and they’re all going to be coming to our show. And it’s going to remain gay.” That’s another clause in the Gagaland constitution: Gay culture shall gush undiluted into the rapids of society. It shall not be co-opted, fancified, dolled up, or Uncle Tommed. “I very much want to inject gay culture into the mainstream,” she says, “It’s not an underground tool for me. It’s my whole life. So I always sort of joke the real motivation is to just turn the world gay.”
Blue is the color of scary, gay, Gaga power.
Next year’s Americans for Truth “Troof Academy” will be entirely devoted to decoding the hidden meanings in Lady Gaga’s costumes, probably. And maybe they can have speakers gives their testimonials about how they’re “Ex-Little Monsters,” after which they will go back to their hotels and listen to “Alejandro” while being gay with each other.
*Yes, WordPress, I know it’s a word that Peter LaBarbera made up, stop giving me your condescending “u can’t spellz” squiggly line; give it to The Peter.
