In the most Biblical sense,
I am beyond repentance
Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind
But in the cultural sense
I just speak in future tense
Judas kiss me if offensed,
Or wear ear condom next time
You might think that the people who bullied 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer with comments like “JAMIE IS STUPID, GAY, FAT ANND UGLY. HE MUST DIE!” are completely ashamed of themselves now that Jamey committed suicide. However, you’d be wrong. The problem is you’re thinking like someone who isn’t utterly disgusting.
In an appearance on the Today show, Jamey’s parents, Tracy and Tim, revealed that bullies were celebrating his death at a dance his sister attended. Tracy says:
“She was having a great time, and all of a sudden a Lady Gaga song came on, and they all started chanting for Jamey, all his friends. Then the bullies that put him into this situation started chanting, ‘You’re better off dead!’ ‘We’re glad you’re dead!’ and things like that. My daughter came home all upset. It was supposed to be a time for her to grieve and have fun with her friends, and it turned into bullying even after he’s gone.”
Tim adds, “I can’t grasp it in my mind … I don’t know why anyone would do that. They have no heart, that’s basically what it comes down to.” You can watch the full interview below … then curl into a ball and weep for humanity.
I so enjoy listening to Lady Gaga making love to her music.
So to give you a little background to the creation of this song. I wrote it in Minnesota after the Monster Ball on the tour bus. We recorded it in one shot. Fernando on guitar, Paul on Drum Machine. I wrote, sang it, and freestyled the last minute + a half of the song.
