Was She Born That Way or Just Perform This Way?
Lady Gaga is known as a unique and vibrant performer with her style and performances. But was she born with that style or just perform this way to gain popularity?
“Perform This Way” is a song parody by the very talented, Weird Al. The parody “Perform This Way” is a parody of Lady Gaga’s song “Born This Way”. The lyrics are told from the point of view of Lady Gaga and describe her performance and style. With Weird Al always asking the artist permitting to make a parody of the artist songs, Lady Gaga had to have consented to this. In fact, she has praised his work and is quite Weird Al fan. This parody alludes to that Lady Gaga does this all for show saying she “Performs This Way”. I think Lady Gaga liked this because she can make fun of herself but also it shows how crazy she can get with her style. But the thing is, the parody also shows that her crazy outfits are just to entertain and not from herself. The parody also shows that she just copying and taking from other people’s styles. So it makes you think of what Weird Al is really trying to say here. Is it how she was born or how she performs?
