Lady Gaga is at it again, trying to offend to get attention. Her latest song, which she leaked on Christmas Day to listeners, “Stuck on F***in You," is another effort to glorify casual sex and profanity.
Huffington Post reported positively on Gaga’s latest effort. “Think of her as a raw, hyper-sexualized Santa Claus, slinking down the chimney to mingle with the flames of your yule log. Lady Gaga's new song, "Stuck on F*ckin' You," eschews her usual synthesizers and high production for a simple blues guitar crawl and loud claps that pair with a growly drawl for maximum aural seduction,” the site wrote (video follows with commentary, serious vulgarity warning):
The lyrics of the song are heavily laden with sexual imagery and at least five uses of the f*** bomb. The song repeats the refrain “stuck on f***in’ you” and include such sexually charged phrases as:
You'll be on stuck f***in' this hooker wh-re
This hooker, wh-re-ooh
Even the photo to go with the song shows Lady Gaga with her shirt undone and her pants unfastened as if she were taking off her clothes.
Lady Gaga is no stranger to controversy. Her songs are full of celebrations of nudity, casual sexual behavior, and mockery of traditional religious beliefs. Her music video “Telephone” was given the adult content tag by YouTube for its excessive sexual content. Other songs, such as “Love Game,” feature singing about wanting to ride a “disco stick.”
Lady Gaga is also notorious for including anti-religious themes in her work, specifically bashing the Catholic Church. Her 2010 song and music video “Alejandro” featured her dressed in a female version of the Pope’s garb. And her 2011 song “Judas” featured her singing the words “Judas is the demon I cling to.” That song was her Easter offering.
But instead of castigating Lady Gaga for her reckless promotion of sexual license and bigotry against faith, the media celebrate her as a great performer and artist. NBC’s Today went so far as to have her perform on their July 9, 2010, show.
Ironically, in a 2010 interview with MTV.com, Lady Gaga advised her listeners that celibacy was fine, and declared: “I can't believe I'm saying this — don't have sex. I'm single right now and I've chosen to be single because I don't have the time to get to know anybody.” But songs like “Stuck on F***in You,” with their emphasis on sexual license, sing a different tune, encouraging their listeners to engage in casual sex at will.
