With the latest appreciations gained by the singer Lady Gaga, it is clarified that she is moving ahead on the right track. The pop star has been honored over the weekend gaining her key to the city of West Hollywood and “Born This Way Day.” It is happening as a part of a celebration of the 10-year anniversary of her album and single called “Born This Way.” Notably, the phrase was also painted in rainbow colors on Robertson Boulevard ahead of Pride Month.
Lady Gaga was thanked by West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey P. Horvath for “encouraging us to love ourselves and be proud.” On Sunday, Mayor further said, “Through her music and activism, Lady Gaga has become a cultural icon for our generation.” Also, she mentioned that the anthem ‘Born This Way’ has become an out-and-proud declarative stance for countless LGBTQ people… I’m overjoyed to declare today ‘Born This Way Day’.
On the other hand, Lady Gaga told the crowd she would “honor” and “cherish” the day. Gaga stated, “You’ve been the motherfucking key to my heart for a long time.” She furthermore said that I promise that I’ll always be here for this day… to celebrate with you. To feel joy with you, to cry with you, to laugh with you. Because you know what we are? We’re poets and we’re just talking to each other.
Gaga in one of her Instagram posts addressed that the song and album “were inspired by Carl Bean, a gay black religious activist who preached, sung and wrote about being ‘Born This Way.” In addition, she wrote a caption to the post, “Notably his early work was in 1975, 11 years before I was born. Thank you for decades of relentless love, bravery, and a reason to sing. So we can all feel joy because we deserve joy. Because we deserve the right to inspire tolerance, acceptance, and freedom for all.” This post was an image of herself on Robertson Boulevard along with such an aspiring caption.
