I’m a free woman!” So sings Lady Gaga.
Chromatica, Lady Gaga’s smash new album, raises more WTF questions than it inspires WTF voices. Great music with wavering lyrics that run the gamut of a woman’s emotions from sadly trapped in relationships to reclaiming independence. It’s the same story for too many women, too many relationships, too many instances of ‘looking-for-love-in-all-the-wrong-places.” There needs to be more leaning into their independence.
Listen to Lady Gaga’s message while you read.
After you listen to Chromatica, read the book review for the book, Fuck Him! by Brian Nox – then watch his video and buy the book. It can all help in building a new perspective to avoid getting caught up in the endless replay of the pain and pleasure of being a victim.
“I don’t know what to do; you don’t know what to say. The scars on my mind are on replay.” – from Fun Tonight
There’s a story here, one that most women will recognize – and should acknowledge. Relationships are about pleasure and pain, loss and growth, dependency and independence. Although Lady Gaga covers the journey of joy and sorrow, she doesn’t always leave one standing tall, singing ‘fuck you … I am woman.’ It’s a powerful personal message from the lady of WTF and a pop-electronic ode to heartbreak and renewal.
Here are two articles that dance you through the songs and lyrics of what one considers the “perfect album for the Lost Summer of 2020.” We add, a great musical prologue to a journey all women should take on the road to learning more about loving themselves so they can be a better lover for their partners.
