The pop singer Lady Gaga just launched an outrageous attack on America, nonsensically claiming that all Americans are fed white supremacist ideologies while living in this country.
“When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy,” the singer told Billboard. “I am in the process of learning and unlearning things I’ve been taught my whole life.”
Lady Gaga went on to add that she hopes that calls for social justice will only get “louder.”
“Social justice is not just a literacy, it’s a lifestyle,” the Grammy and Oscar-winner said. “What do I think about [posting] a black square? I think everybody has a different feeling about a black square. Do I think there’s such a thing as performative activism? Yes. Do I think there’s been true activism that’s been very important and needed? Yes. Do I believe Black lives matter? Yes. Do I believe this is going to get louder? Yes. Do I believe it should? Yes.”

Performance activism really seems to bother Lady Gaga, as she added, “I call that the Lindseys: the girls that protest and are taking pictures of themselves like, ‘Look at me protesting!’ ”
She went on to pledge that she would never add social justice elements to her own performances, just for the sake of doing so.
“To say that I would do it to make my show relevant? Absolutely not. I would do it to make my show right,” Lady Gaga said. “I would do it to make my show good.”
This is far from the first time Lady Gaga has attacked and shamed America. Back in June, she said that the “racist seeds” of America have become “trees that grew prejudice branches and oppressive leaves and mangled roots that buried and entrenched themselves deep within the soil.”
One month before that, Lady Gaga took to Twitter to post a lengthy attack on President Donald Trump, who she slammed as a “racist.”
The “Chromatica” singer wrote that Trump
