America still can’t accept Lady Gaga’s bisexuality — or anybody else’s
How many times does Lady Gaga need to come out to us? Gaga first opened up to Barbara Walters about her sexuality in 2009, revealing that “Poker Face” was written about her attraction to women. According to Gaga, she’s had sex with both men and women, and in a recent interview with Andy Cohen, she joked about “taking a few dips in the lady pond.” As a queer person, Lady Gaga gets to define her sexuality however she chooses, and she’s repeatedly labeled herself as bisexual.
However, Gaga’s pronouncements about her orientation tend to be forgotten about or outright dismissed as a ploy to gain acceptance with an LGBTQ fanbase. The out singer addressed her critics last week during a question and answer session at Berlin’s Berghain Club, while promoting her forthcoming album, ARTPOP. The singer sounded off: “You know what? It's not a lie that I am bisexual and I like women, and anyone that wants to twist this into ‘she says she's bisexual for marketing,’ this is a fucking lie. This is who I am and who I have always been.”
