Lady GaGa Didn’t Mean ‘Retard’ Like That, She Meant It The Other Way

UH-OH! Lady Gaga is in trouble again! Why? Has she been wearing meat again, making vegetarians puke? Nope. Has she been living inside a hot water bottle made from tinfoil while wearing a hat made from scrota?

Sadly not. She’s got into a little trouble because she said the word “retarded”.

That’s right. When answering claims that she copied Madonaa’s ‘Express Yourself’ on her (infuriatingly catchy) ‘Born This Way’, she said:

“I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded.”

And now, people with disabilities (and, in fairness, people who just like complaining about stuff) have thrown their arms up in disgust and GaGa has had to apologise.

In a statement to blogger Perez Hilton, she said:

“I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance.

“My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional.”

“An honest mistake, requires honesty to make. Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.”
