“Art is a lie. And every day I kill to make it true. It is my destiny to exist halfway between reality and fantasy at all times. They call me “theatrical,” but I posit profusely that I am theatre, and that theatre is me. I am a show with no intermission. It is this thing that summons me from the depths of reality and reminds me that the power of transformation is endless. That I (we) possess something magical and transformative inside?—??a uniqueness and specialness waiting to be exiled from the depths of our identity. I have said before that I am a master of escapism, which many attribute to my wigs, performances, and my natural inclination to be grand, but perhaps that is also a lie. Maybe I am not escaping. Maybe I am just being. Being myself.”
I never wanted Lady Gaga to get to me like this. Of course I dislike her and of course I can’t stand the vast majority of her music, but honestly, I feel a little bit of rage. To be fair, it’s probably because I’m so fragile from Harry Potter, but Jesus, would I love to just punch her in the throat.
In case you haven’t heard, I positively adore theatre, I couldn’t even begin to tell you how much. And I could probably respect the hell out of this quote if, you know, it didn’t come from the girl who sings the absolute dumbest songs and is just a damn joke. I can’t even stand it. I’m going to have to walk this one off, you guys.
Feel free to bash Lady Gaga and/or praise the magic of theatre in the comments!
