Gagging on Gaga

• I commend Muslim protesters for causing Lady Gaga to cancel her 'Born This Way Ball' in Indonesia. Gaga's music is aimed at the phenomenon of the masses and has to be described as the 'cult of the banal'.

Her album 'Born This Way' is a narcissistic exercise that never really attempts to answer the core question elicited by the title -- what it really means to be authentically human.

For Gaga, the mantra "born this way" is nothing more than a convenient slogan to justify anarchy and sexual permissiveness.
