Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta was voted Time List 100 most influential people in the world. Last month, she was voted 4th Most powerful and influential celebrities in the world and ranked 2nd most powerful musician in the world.
She loved singing and art and decided to be a singer. She was fond of the group Queen and the song, Radio Gaga. When she typed Radio Gaga onto her phone and it auto corrected to Lady Gaga and then the name stuck! "Don't ever call me Stefani anymore!" she said.
Last month too, she became the only living person today to have 10,000,000 friends on her FACEBOOK, slightly more than President Obama.
What is the reason teenagers and music lovers going GAGA over Lady GAGA? Is it her dressing? Is it her body? Is it her music? Perhaps the lyrics? Or simply the eccentricity of life she portrayed? People just hated routine nowadays! They want to see weird people doing weird things in wierd fashion (I am saying weird only as my own opinion because millions see it as cool)! Another singer, Adam Lambert with his own perculiar brand of singing has made it big too!
If Christians introduce JESUS to people today, what picture should we paint HIM to be? Can people at large connect with JESUS CHRIST? Should He be hip like those celebrities?
I think Jesus Christ would beat them all when we just introduce Him not as Fashion Icon but as God who goes GAGA over mankind! Where He gets dirty when needs arise. Where poor and troubled people get His touch of mercy. Where vulnerable, marginalise and powerless people get help coupled with a divine smile. Two thousand years ago, He did the same and He is the same yesterday, today and forever more!
