Lady Gaga In Trouble Over ‘Retarded’ Comment
Lady Gaga is in hot water after calling claims that she copied Madonaa’s Express Yourself with Born This Way, “retarded”.
The superstar singer has millions of fans worldwide and used the offensive term during an interview with the UK’s NME magazine.
She said: “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music.
“Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded.”
The singer has now apologised for using the term after it unsurprisingly, caused offence to many of her fans and charities around the globe. In a statement to blogger Perez Hilton, she said: “I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance.
“My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional.”
She added: “An honest mistake, requires honesty to make. Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.”
