Stephanie Germanotta, The Queen, Lady Gaga, or whatever you want to call her, delivered a magnificent performance at the 2017 Super Bowl where the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons. Gaga performed some of her oldie but goodie songs like “Bad Romance” and “Born This Way,” as well as some pieces off of her new Joanne album, including my personal favorite song of hers, “Million Reasons.” Gaga’s performance was all-around superb: her singing, her dancing, her stage presence, her special effects (she’s basically an acrobat so it’s fine), and her costumes. However, the trolls took to Twitter to tear apart Gaga’s physical appearance because her stomach appeared to not be skeletally carved and flat. Here is a compilation of some of my favorite troll tweets.
Disclaimer: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and they are entitled to voice it on social media. However, I personally find it very impolite and unkind to tear apart another person’s physical appearance. I am not trying to attack anyone, I just wanted to provide you all with a good laugh and morally support Lady Gaga and her music.
Ok, rude. Let’s see you try to do even half of these special effects or be lowered from an elevated height into a stadium with 100 times more people than you’ve probably ever even seen in your life.
And you were granted permission to decide what another human being wears, when?
Glad you know how to enjoy good music and have the attention-span of an adult. *note extreme sarcasm.*
Good one. Your comment really has an impact! What did you even accomplish by saying this?
WHOA, OKAY, THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WRONG WITH THIS STATEMENT. So, to have a brain and opinions you have to not fit into society’s standards of beauty? And if you do fit society’s standards of beauty, you can’t have a brain or opinions? What does politics and physical appearance have to do with each other?
Clever. Hilarious. Really, bravo. You got 17 retweets from people who are probably as superficial and bored as you! Congrats!
Lady Gaga’s performance, whether you like her physical appearance or not, should be judged on the actual elements of her performance, like her vocals or her dancing, not how she looked in her sequined shorts. It is about time that this world paid attention to individuals on a basis of more than just their physical appearance. Here at the spread we are #BodyPositive.
