Lady GaGa Criticized For ‘Sexual’ ‘Born This Way’ Ad

Published: Thursday 26th Jan 2012 by David

Just as celebrated for her standout look as she is for her award winning music, Lady GaGa has never been  a stranger to controversy.

Labelled blasphemous by The Catholic League and a Madonna clone by the ‘Material Girl’ herself, this week saw GaGa come under more fire, months before kicking off the ‘Born This Way Ball‘ tour.

Full story below…

After a lone viewer accused the above of being ‘provocative’, the Advertising Standards Authority were forced to review its eligibility to feature on television.

However, after some consideration they concluded that the clip was in no way offensive, even supporting the singer’s outrageous style.

They explained:

The ASA understood that the ad consisted of clips from Lady GaGa promotional videos and noted that although the images featured the singer’s trademark outrageous costumes and performance style the majority of the clips were not overtly sexual.

Because the ad had been carefully scheduled, reducing the likelihood of children seeing it, we concluded that the scheduling had not breached the code.

This followed a statement from Universal Music who defended the ad, arguing that it featured clips from videos that already aired television, and that they had specifically targeted the 16-44 demographic and no younger.

  4. Amras January 26, 2012

    I don’t know who’s checking her out. I think her music is overrated & if I listen to her music it feels already so outdated.

    @white girl mob: What foul language! I don’t wanna know how your p**** smells if your mouth talks s***.

    KINGSLEY OVEREXPOSED (mid 2012) suggestions:

    1. Sh*t ________ say

    2. Celebrities getting tattoos instead of social life (Rihanna)

    3. Silly record-breaking attempts (Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj)

    4. Controversy whores (Lady Gaga, Rihanna)

    Rihanna is not a w****, firstly. So get that out your head. Secondly, White girl mob on a real your mouth is way to nasty it seems like you know no other words to talk abut gaga im sure you could have used much more better words to use. Doesnt look good as a young lady your self.

    Laday Gaga, her music i so dont get its all about the devil and she presents herself so badly. All of her videos to me well most have sexual clips of her half naked skimpy outfits. But thats her.

  8. Anthony January 26, 2012

    First off, Madonna did not call her a clone. Maybe you should do as Madonna said and look up the word “reductive”.

    Secondly, what’s wrong with that ad? There’s nothing sexual about the ad. Sexual = s**, and there is no s** in that ad.

  9. Anthony January 26, 2012

    Uh, Tasha, Rihanna is more of a w**** than Lady Gaga and presents herself badly every day of her goddamn life. On Twitter she’s constantly calling people names, in real life, she’s screeching on stage, and in her personal life, she sucks the d**** of her producers so that they will make her a beat.

  10. White girl mob January 26, 2012

  13. 123456 January 26, 2012

    Lady REDUCTIVE GENERIC SH*T is the biggest piece of sh*t worldwide.

    It’s good to see that more and more people are only starting to realize this fact now. Better late than never.

    I knew from the very start that Lady Caca was a f*cking bad joke of gigantic sh*tty proportions when the stupid f*cking try-hard newbie used Christina Aguilera’s name to become famous in late 2008.

    The stupid f*cking Lady Reductive can GTFO of the music industry and show her deformed ugly naked clown @ss to someone else and leave the public alone.

    F*cking wack fugly monstrosity.

  21. Small_Angel January 27, 2012

    this reductive singer is copying Madonna and Christina’s career path…

  22. CAL3B January 27, 2012

    I’m not a Gaga hater or anything, but there was only one thing that I found troublesome in this otherwise mild advertisement. And it’s that I felt like I was watching an actress in a movie starring as Madonna – like a ‘reductive’ version of her for a movie. It was basically indistinguishable!!!

  23. Delusion January 27, 2012

    Lady Reductive! Generating controversy via s**, what else is new. This broad has nothing left to say.

    Now, just waiting for the day when all little cretins slit their wrists & vanish from this world. Then good taste will reign again at last

  24. chris smith January 27, 2012

    TGJ should stick to publishing articles about urban shite and the whores that sing it. The foul-mouthed comments here about the greatest living performance artist in the world are offensive. btw Gaga has a heart of gold and the face of an angel, Madge has a heart of stone and a plastic face!

  25. Lady Caca, the reductive piece of shiot January 27, 2012

    @ chris smith

    WTF makes you think it’s okay for Lady Caca to basically make an entire career out of BEING A TRIBUTE ARTIST FOR MADONNA, PLAGIARIZING THE SHIOT OUT OF MADONNA WITHOUT CONSENT!!

    You (like the other horrific MONSTERS) are a clueless, ignorant clown. You’re not called F*CKING “MONSTERS” for no reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You guys and your idol LADY CACA are so annoying, deaf and blind. Disastrous.

    The Catholic church had s** with thousands of children and they’re worried about Madonna and Lady Gaga? Let’s send the FBI into the Catholic church to find out how many more children they had s** with, and we’ll worry about Madonna later.
