Everyone here on this site has their own opinions, that's why we're all here.
And well, if you can't respect others' ideas, or be open-minded, then I see no reason for you to be here.
Anyways, I'm not trying to get people to hate her. I was simply stating something that happened to catch my eye, and I'm sure others will find it intriguing, as well.

No your right her duality symbolizes the one person that is really her but the other half that is evil that's her stage performance alter ego. In most cases of ritualistic satanic abuse totally seperate personas are created through the tramatic experiences which causes the person to dissociate and then their other mind controlled half is almost programmed at will.edit on 2-3-2011 by Brad Jones because: (no reason given)edit on 2-3-2011 by Brad Jones because: (no reason given)

It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
I was born this way, hey!
Denny Brewer: Deep-fried Texas musician/oddball who, along with his son, plays in the band Refried Ice Cream. In recent weeks, Brewer has risen to fame thanks to his recorded ramblings about alternate dimensions, phase-shifting, lizard people and pomegranates that serve as the through-line to Bright Eyes' The People's Key album. Much of what Gaga declares in her "Manifesto of Mother Monster" is lifted from Brewer's playbook: a "mitosis of the future," a "multiverse" and the constantly changing concepts of "temporal" and "eternal."
Alexander McQueen: The late fashion designer has always been an influence on Gaga (she wore his famous "armadillo heels" in the "Bad Romance" video and one of his creations on the red carpet of the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards), and in "Born This Way," her outfit at the beginning of the video — where she's hovering above Earth, giving birth to a starchild (or something) — seems directly influenced by the natural flourishes of McQueen's final collection, which featured feathers, mock scales and faux wings
H.R. Giger: Swiss-born surrealist painter and sculptor, perhaps best known for designing the terrifying, sexualized beasts in the "Alien" franchise. After Gaga gives birth to her "evil" spawn, he contorts his body in a way that, when coupled with sinewy fabrics, appears to be a direct nod to Giger's chilling work
"The relation of the video to my real life, as well as to my dream of the future, is really what makes it so special," she said on the show. "Part of what Born This Way is all about is choosing to live halfway between reality and fantasy at all times, and how anyone can do that. So this video really, really challenges that idea and also celebrates it. And it's very exciting. "I will also say that Yuyi is in incubation, for anyone who knows what that means," she added, referring to the name she's given to her mermaid alter ego that she first unveiled during her performance for France's "Le Grand Journal" in June. "Yuyi may just be born in the next video."
