Lady Gaga hits back at those who "make a mockery" of her music
Superstar Lady Gaga took time out of a recent performance on her Born This Way Ball tour to address those who poke fun or belittle her music.
During a piano-led rendition of her hit 'Hair' in New Zealand on June 7, the modern pop icon spoke directly to her audience about people who "make a mockery" of her work and explained that it's never right to put other people down as a direct result of low self-esteem:
"It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work. And that doesn't make me feel good at all. That just makes me feel like I'm not being a good human being."
"I feel like if you're a really good human being, you can try to find something beautiful in every single person, no matter what."
She continued by admitting that she tries not to let the negativity get to her because the music is the only thing that matters so she channels her emotions into her creativity:
"I don't even want to fight back because it's more important to me to keep writing music. Because that's really all I care about, is the music... things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that's what makes 'Born this Way' so relevant for me. We're socially in a different place and it's OK, we don't have to all slice and hate each other anymore."
