Lady Gaga: Every American 'Drinks the Poison That is White Supremacy'
Popstar claims all people who born in the United States are fed white supremacy ideology
Popstar Lady Gaga has slammed the United States in a new interview, claiming that all Americans are fed white supremacy ideology.
The controversial singer made the bizarre claim that all people born in the U.S. "drink the poison that is white supremacy."
Speaking with Billboard magazine, Gaga added that she supports the radical protests taking place across the country and hopes that it will continue to grow.
During the lengthy interview, Gaga explained that she is trying to learn and unlearn things that she’s been exposed to throughout her life.
“When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy,” she declared.
“I am in the process of learning and unlearning things I’ve been taught my whole life.”
The “Bad Romance” singer told the magazine that she has been working hard to undo the white supremacist ingrained in her from birth, saying: "Social justice is not just a literacy, it’s a lifestyle.”
Regarding the latest social media campaign that had high-profile celebrities posting black squares as their profile pics in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, Lady Gaga seemed to call it “performative activism.”
"What do I think about [posting] a black square? I think everybody has a different feeling about a black square,” Gaga said.
"Do I think there’s such a thing as performative activism? Yes," she continued.
"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.”
Elsewhere during the interview, Gaga also blasted those who refuse to wear face masks to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s really wrong for us to go, ‘I’m uncomfortable [with wearing a mask] because I can’t breathe,’” she said.
“Give me a break,” she added.
“Show some respect for the people who are there for us when we dial 911.”
In the wake of George Floyd's death earlier this summer, Gaga insisted that America will change for the better.
“I wish to tell you today that though there is much to be sad about, there is also much to be celebrated,” she said.
"You are watching what is a pivotal moment in this [country’s] evolution…change will happen and it will be for the better."
Most recently, singer Demi Lovato told Vogue that she hated knowing that she shared the same skin color as those who have been accused of killing black people.
"All I knew was that I hated that I shared the same skin color as the people accused of committing heinous crimes against Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and many, many other Black lives,” she wrote.
"After taking some time to educate myself, what I’ve learned is that to be a good ally, you need to be willing to protect people at all costs," she continued.
"You have to step in if you see something happening that’s not right: a racist act, a racist comment, a racist joke.
"And it’s not just with Black Lives Matter.
"It’s also with the Me Too movement.
"Finally, the world is waking up and it’s beautiful to witness.”
