Lady GaGa Pushes the Envelope Yet Again

Lady GaGa is such a mixed bag. She is talented singer, but so disturbing at times. And this is one of those times.

One moment she is helping children stand up to bullying, the next she is smoking marihuana on stage at her concert in Amsterdam!

And her latest antic is all over You Tube and the Internet. Now, teens can watch one the biggest music stars glorify pot smoking and actually engage in the behavior in a public forum. With impunity, she lit up on stage and talked about her love for weed to an audience of screaming teens.

How irresponsible! Yes, you can smoke marihuana in Amsterdam legally, but that is hardly the point. You can also drink yourself into a stuper legally, but that doesn’t mean you should.

Great role model for those kids trying not to be victims. Last time I looked, drug use is not a path to success for teens! And for most kids who will emulate her love for weed now, they won’t be affording the expensive drug programs to get them functioning again once the addiction takes hold. But GaGa, with all her money, can simple go to celebrity rehab if she gets in trouble. And more disturbing, this from a woman who overcame an addiction to cocaine before she reached her current fame.

I had hoped she would be different in terms of the usual rock star who drinks herself into oblivion and gets high to be “inspired” or check out of reality. It appears not. She is taking the predictable path. Next thing you know, we will have a behind the music show documenting her road to darkness and attempt to climb back.

Do you think this is just another desperate move to stay in the spotlight and be relevant? How far will she go to be outrageous?  And how sad  considering her immense following and actual talent. I’m afraid we are about to watch another pop star implode. Some people would argue  that this is only another pop star indulging her every wish, allowing money to make her reckless and doing anything to get attention.

But Lady GaGa is  a woman who could lead a generation another way and be a positive influence. She has moments of goodness but this overshadows her light.
