Lady Gaga Cries in Concert in Poland, Calls Out "Trendy" Counterparts

by at . Comments

It's not often you see Lady Gaga reduced to tears on stage. The two main talking points from the pop star's impromptu concert address in Poland Friday ...

  • Her upcoming album, Born This Way, will be the best of the decade.
  • She's sick of the whole let-your-freak-flag-fly trend in pop culture.

"The funny thing is some people reduce freedom to a brand," Gaga said, crying.

"They think that it's trendy now to be free. They think it's trendy to be excited about your identity. In truth, there is nothing trendy about Born This Way."

Gaga has long been a vocal advocate for gay rights, but is this personal? Is there a hint of jealousy at "her" message being co-opted by other celebrities?

The bulk of Lady Gaga's speech sounded like a direct response to the handful of empowerment songs female pop stars have released in recent months.

From Pink's "Raise Your Glass" to Katy Perry's "Firework" and Ke$ha's "We R Who We R," many singers seem to be siding with the underdogs lately.

The wig and lipstick comments may be a shot at Nicki Minaj, who has embraced a gay fan base, and donned an assortment of out-there hairpieces.

No one here's questioning the motives of Pink, Katy or Ke$ha, and Gaga likely isn't either, but you can't help but wonder if she's feeling a bit left out.

After all, those artists performed at the American Music Awards before Born This Way was even released. Is Gaga trying to take back the message?

This is a girl who's donned a meat dress, done countless PSAs, even embraced hermaphrodite rumors about herself. But can't others join the party?

You tell us: Was Lady Gaga weeping because she feels so strongly about her fans and her causes, or for selfish reasons? A combination of the two?

She was crying because of he fans. She was performing in Poland, and HUNDREDS of fans in the audience all of a sudden held up signs that said "Born This Way" and she was so ovecome with emotion. Stop trying to make her seem selfish when all she does is give & give

I'M AMAZED AT HOW MANY PEOPLE REFER TO "IT" AS "HER" ?
IT'S A HERMAPHRODITE ! "BORN THIS WAY" REFERS TO NOT BEING GAY, BUT RATHER HAVING BOTH SEX ORGANS AND NOT BEING ABLE TO IDENTIFY WITH EITHER SEX AS A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR AN IDENTITY. IN ANTIQUITY, THEY CALLED THEM "MUSES", NEITHER HERE NOR THERE, NEITHER HIM NOR HER, BUILT OF BOTH....EMOTION OF NONE. A JOKE PLAYED MY NATURE THAT KNOW ONE GETS. I KNOW REGULARS TO HERE HAVE SEEN MY POSTS, ALWAYS SARCASTIC AND JOKING....BUT, I'M NOT MAKING A JOKE ABOUT THIS......YOU'LL SEE, THIS LOOKS LIKE A SET UP TO COME OUT WITH THE TRUTH ABOUT THE GENDER.

Really people? this is a woman that wants attention and that's it! She's out there acting like some saint but in the end if you pay attention you will see that she's disrespectful with a lot of people. For example her Alejandro clip is ridiculous, I'm not a religious person but I found myself offended by it. I don't like to judge people but I'm sick and tired of hearing everyone defend her when in the end all she really wants is to be famous and rich. It's cool when someone defends gay rights and other things but that doesn't give this someone the right to offend other, even if she doesn't agree with them. And please don't tell me that using a meat dress was to send the industry a message, she just wanted to shock people and have all the attention. So Yeah i'm think she is jelous about all the other singers out there, 'cause she wants the attention all for herself!

Can I be the one to tell Lady Gag to get over herself? It's like damn, you dress up like a freak, make freaky music and now your sad because people call you a freak. What the hell do you want?

I believe she is talking about herself and the attention she gets for inconsequential things. Touching her wig is a dead give-away. It is more important to listen to and think about her words than what she or anyone else is wearing. Lady Gaga has an old soul and is passionate about these things. There is a lot of value in what she says if only we would listen to the book and not judge the cover.

I think that it sucks when u start doin something and all the sudden every1 else does it too 4 popularity, gaga has put all her life and heart to this cause, she began her carrier singing about gay rights, something that not a whole lot of singers would of done, but now they've seen the results and the big size of gay community that now every1 is trying to do like her, but there won't be no other like her, now u see katy and kesha tryin 2b lady gaga like, dressing weird and being the "no givin a dam" type, n they see its working for them, I particulary likr katys firework song, but when she sang live at the AMA awards I was like omg! It sounded so horrible, n no one else like lady gaga, she's like the best singer-writter-producer-fashion desingner, and maybe the only one who works as hard
