Lady Gaga let the world know, she’s sick of being compared to Madonna. Gaga’s latest album, Joanne, is currently on sale for just $3.99. Although white and privileged, Lady Gaga penned a song to commemorate the death of Trayvon Martin. She is one of few artist risking acceptance to bring attention to the Black Lives Matter Movement. This deserves an Applause.
“How can I not say something? How could I possibly make an album about twerking my ass in the club?” asked the singer. “In my mind, I can’t reckon it. It feels empty. It feels irrelevant.”
“Angel Down,” a track off the album Joanne out October 21st, is now available for streaming, but Gaga sampled some of the lyrics in her Essence Magazine interview:
“Doesn’t everyone belong in the arms of the sacred/ Why do we pretend we’re wrong has our young courage faded/ Shots were fired down the street by the church where we used to meet/ Angel down, angel down, why do people just stand around”
