Sticking Her Nose (Job) Where It Doesn't Belong



This is great - one of my favorite NewAgers in the music biz, Lady Gaga, flipped out on the New Music Express about her latest song, Born This Way, which a lot of people happen to think sounds a lot like our other favorite NewAger in the music biz, Madonna. The Amplifier blog called GaGa's outburst "her very own version of the Five Stages of Grief!" except they added one stage I've never heard before:
Religious Pandering:


[Starts crying] "I feel like honestly that God sent me those lyrics and that melody. When you feel a message to give to the world and people are shooting arrows at it... there's no way for something that pure to be wrong."
Now that's a great bit of logic there! But here's my question:

Is there ever going to be a NewAger who doesn't use their feelings ("Nothing more than feelings,...") as the ultimate justification for trying to get their way? (Or, in this case, attempting to change reality?) They need to try a new schtick, if you ask me, because their own feelings ain't cutting it. News to GaGa:

Ain't nobody else feelin' it.
