** Her halftime show performance at Super Bowl LI was widely praised for great performances of several of her biggest hits, plus some subtly subversive bits like performing a snippet of "This Land Is Your Land" (originally written as a scathing anti-Fascism screed). But there's also a sizable group of people saying they were let down by her not taking the opportunity to be more overtly political like Beyonce the previous year, and especially upset that she got the same amount of attention for doing far less.

*** Another interpretation is that the song isn't mocking the model; it's about the girl is seen as as perfect, carefree, and above the criticism of others, but beneath the mask feels misunderstood and that no one knows the real her. Some also believe that she's purposely setting up the misunderstanding as a mask to hide her true feelings.

* DudeNotFunny: She was NOT happy with the TakeThat of her in the "Fatty Boom Boom" music video from Music/DieAntwoord. See the [[http://www.straight.com/blogra/die-antwoord-blasts-lady-gaga-outrageous-new-fatty-boom-boom-video article]].



* FanHater: Some of the HypeAversion experienced by Gaga at certain point partially came down to this as Little Monsters don't really have the best reputation on the internet.



* {{Mondegreen}}: "One second I'm a Koons, then suddenly the Koons is me" (Koons being the artist Jeff Koons) from "Applause" is commonly heard as "One second I'm a kunst, then suddenly the kunst is me". FridgeBrilliance and BilingualBonus kicks in when one realises "kunst" is German, Dutch and Estonian for "art".



* TheScrappy: See Fan Hater



* StupidSexyFlanders: Jo Colderone, her image in You & I clip both bring out these feelings.



* TheWoobie: Gaga herself as she has [[http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38218247 spoken]] about being raped when she was 19 and that it caused her trauma in addition to suffering PTSD.

** "Donatella" is a song that sings the virtues of a rich, blond, upperclass model, making her life seem amazing and perfect. However, some lyrics suggest that this might be a StealthParody, and the song is meant to be a cynical look at a shallow person. This is more obvious in the music video, which often shows similar-looking blond girls being mass-produced or puppeteered by unseen forces.



%%** "Born This Way."

to:

%%** ** "Born This Way." Way," meant to be an anthem about accepting yourself, whoever or whatever you may be. It's not even subtle about the message, and it forgoes symbolism and her usual mystique of her music; it just straight up says that you were born perfect and should accept yourself, over and over. It's a good song and a good message, delivered with the same subtlety as a brick to the face.

* {{Anvilicious}}[=/=]SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped:
** "Born This Way." Is it possible to be less subtle?
** Part of why it's so effective is that it's someone so [[RefugeInAudacity audacious]] as Lady Gaga is telling the people listening "Hey, it's okay for you to BeYourself. If people hate you for it, don't let it get to you. You're beautiful." and whatnot. On the other hand, Fred Rogers spread that same message for four decades and never once wore a meat dress.
** [[TearJerker "Bad]] [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Kids"]] also qualifies: "You're still good to me if you're a bad kid, baby."
** Hell, the opening rant, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WITH THIS HORSESHIT!!" Could be counted as a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome brilliant]] TakeThat at the sort of people who use the ThinkOfTheChildren "arguments"...especially given [[LGBTFanbase her fandom]].

** For actual friction between personalities, Music/KatyPerry seems to have a distaste for her.

** Is she a talented singer who created her quirky personality and fashion sense to rise above the pool of unsigned talented musicians? Or is she just a generic singer/songwriter who created the quirky personality as a desperate grab for attention? Depending on how much the person making the analysis likes her and her music, she falls somewhere between all three.

Depending on how much the person making the analysis likes her and her music, she falls somewhere between all three. Gaga later proved that she's actually a ''ridiculously talented'' singer, so opinions may vary because of it.
