There has not been a celebrity in a long time who shows such a fascination with esoteric ideas the way Lady Gaga has.

First, her name includes opposites, united as one. A Lady is a full grown woman, and "Gaga", is the proverbial sound a baby makes. Together, she is both a full grown woman and an infant. The first dualism.

The second dualism is her explanation of her tattoos. She says that of respect to her "father" she has tattooed only one side of her body - the left side. This appears to be an obvious use of metaphysical symbolism. The "Right" is associated with the masculine, and "father" image, while the left is associated with the feminine and "mother image". The "father" she speaks of is the patriarchial energy manifest in consciousness as the power of judgement, and thus morality. She keeps this side 'untouched' to indicate the purity of her association with this cosmic principle. On her left side however, which is associated with emotion, and finitude, and the ways of the world, she has many tattoos, probably to indicate her many experiences

Another myth, probably generated by Lady Gagas publicists, is the rumor that she is a hermaphrodite. This again refers to her fascination with the unity of opposites; masculine and feminine.

And of course, there is her music. Her song Judas pretty much states the gnostic philosophy in the book of Judas. In one part she says

"Jesus is my virtue"
"Judas is the demon that i cling to"..

Jesus is here being associated with the moral and virtuous.
While Judas on the other hand is being associated with the demonic - which she 'clings to. She 'clings' to it because the demonic - instinctual and base desires - naturally clings to a person. Her 'clinging' to Judas indicates her acceptance of the evil principle...

I agree, chucky. Enough nonsense.
People think/thought she was a tranny because she looks like one

Call me narrow-minded if you want, but I cant fathom someone being so esoteric and yet have lyrics like

"Let's have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick
Let's have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick

Huh!
Huh!

I wanna kiss you,
but if I do then I might miss you, babe
It's complicated and stupid
Got my ass squeezed by sexy Cupid"

Who cares what some spoilt little trollop thinks or says. You are just playing right into her publicity by coming out with crap like this.

Let me see, what's more important - Lady Gaga offending religious beliefs or ANYTHING ELSE. Hmm.....

I'll take ANYTHING ELSE for a hundred thanks.

Just letting you know this website vigilantcitizen.com... writes in depth theories on Lady Gaga's occult connection as well as others in the music industry.

The author's resume from the inside says he knows what he's talking about, however his theories suggest he knows how to get readers by connecting a bunch of dots that are interesting. Fun reads none the less.

I believe I am going to make a thread one day that discusses the "new age" gnostics and how it is completely irrelevant to modern times. The only true gnostics are the mandeans

What makes you think any of that is related to Gnosticism - they did not espouse any 'evil principle' merely 'error' or deviation from purpose caused by Archon intrusions into the earthly realm.

There were many different schools of gnostic thought.

The basic gist of Lady Gagas philosophy is Gnostic; by which i mean, dualistic, embracing both good and evil, the spiritual and the materialistic, "Jesus" and "Judas"...

She is a media created attention whore thats a regurgitation of Madonna.

Vigilant has many awesome points about music videos, some containing LG, but she didnt design the video. A team of marketing specialists did.

Its not really "conspiracy" what im suggesting.

All artists are inspired by some personal philosophy. Others, actually take the time to study various philosophies, and Lady Gaga is manifestly one of those artists (shes supposedly taken an interest in Hinduism which she says "I actually find that a lot of my philosophies about art are mirrored in the Hindu religion")

This statement itself implies she has a pagan philosophy, and since she sees Hinduism as a reflection of her own beliefs, its probably likely that she has studied Theosophy/New Age ideas, as many celebrities are wont to do.

Well if true, its a pity her music and presona doesnt reflect this, The lyrics in pretty much all her music is midless, sexualized babble. intermingled with sinister dark ocultic symbols and themes. rolled out for there shock value. She just smacks of some disturbed little girl who has a chip on her shoulder because her parents didnt show her enuf attention or something .

I never once said i liked her.

Infact I find her incredibly obnoxious. The way she broadcasts her philosophy of evil and perversion is totally and wantonly obnoxious. And only a woman fueled by such a philosophy could act that way without feeling any bit of shame. Only a madonna (another celebrity obsessed with mysticism) and Lady Gaga, and other such people (Freddy Mercury, who came from a zoroastrian family, Prince, Michael Jackson etc) act that way because theyre very philosophical people. Its just unfortunate that they appeal to the masses of the people - themselves completely and entirelly ignorant of high philosophical ideas - and so we stand here amazed that these industry whores can be so succesful in making a cult of their own personality. In their minds, they think they epitomize a particular goddess. They become the "avatar", the incarnation of an abstract emotional power into human reality, and so become both the priestess and the goddess at once. This is what the very name "madonna" suggests, the divine feminine/the virgin mary. Lady Gaga is just like her. Same with Beyonce - to a lesser extent, but she also manifests a fascination with the power of the divine feminine (like her recent song 'girls, who run the world". If this were "men, who run the world" there'd be a media frenzy. And the feminists have the audacity to think that 'men' control everything. Feminisms purpose is to cancel out the reality of feminine ideas and associations being used to condition the publics unconscious)..Everything about hollywood is immersed, completely and totally in the world of mysticism - in the irrational, and emotional. Its a natural association. Hollywood is very artistic. And art is generally fueled by some metaphysical philosophy of life. In heraldry, that is, the philosophy of symbols, Holly, the wood, symbolizes truth. Thus, we go back to Greek philosophy to arrive at the significance of this idea. What connection is there between Truth and Art? According to Hesiods theogony, when Gaia incited Cronus against his father, Cronus castrated Uranous, and from the blood of uranous severed penis which fell into the ocean, grew Aphrodite - the goddess of desire and beauty. The esoteric, or metaphysical interpretation of this allegorical myth is this: Uranous represents a long standing idea which has outgrown its time. Gaia - the divine feminine principle - symbolizes the ways of the earth, which is change. The concept of Change is realized as time - cronus. Time ultimately wares away and 'castrates', or siphons the energy of a longstanding universal idea ie; culture, or a commonly accepted belief system. This breaking away from the old creates desire; the essence of the old - symbolized by uranous' penis - ie; a persons essence is transferred through the semen, remains. And this essence is the belief in an immutably constant living principle which animates creation. This principle, or 'unseen God' is beyond all distinction. And thus, being so infinite and definitionless in its character, this world and its changes are just as apart of its nature. This is the 'blood and semen Evil and Good' that gives birth, in the ocean (chaos), to Aphrodite - desire for something new. Thus, Art represents this principle of change in human consciousness. Art captures a moment of time - the defining characteristic of a particular period. It contacts the very unconscious reality which precedes all change. It anticipates change. It brings society in a certain direction. It epitomizes the concept of truth as understood by the Hellenistic psyche. Change = truth. Because Change is apart of the world. Ones job is to live in harmony with it. And so hollywood, in its fantasy making, and image-weaving, is all designed to emphasize the relativity of everything. EVERYTHING is a matter of some change. My reality is different from yours, and yours from mine. We each approach the world in different ways. One attitude natural to me will make something you consider unlikeable, likeable. This is why emotions were deified by the ancients. They each CONVEY the world to a person in its own archetypal way. And so this gives them an abstract power. It is a 'god'. To a naturally melancholic person, his own strong emotional nature will cause him to percieve the world in that way. The god DEFINES that persons reality. What then is truth??
