ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Lady Gaga’s new album “Born This Way” is a narcissistic exercise in self-absorption that never really attempts to answer the core question elicited by the title as to what it really means to be authentically human (“Amazon’s gamble gives Lady Gaga 1M in album sales,” Web, Wednesday). For the singer, the mantra “born this way” is nothing more than a convenient slogan to justify anarchy and sexual permissiveness.

From the self-centered clothes she wears to the artificial self-esteem she exudes in the title track of the album, Lady Gaga stands for that which is wrong with America.
