Lady Gaga and the shiz.

A lot of people have been talking about the recent Lady Gaga song, Judas. People have been saying that it's a form of illumination and stuffs. Before I ramble further on this, let it just be known that i'm in no way near to becoming a Gaga fan, and most important, I am in no way of trying to defend her. So here's my take on the issue.

First and foremost, before we start talking about the issue, let's ask ourselves a very simple question, how does listening to her songs affects your faith? If it doesn't shake you, then you're good to go. If it somehow changes your state of mind, then man, you're in deep shit.

A lot of people starts banning her just because they heard stories that her songs are satanic and such. This maybe true, but the verdicts ain't ours. Words of mouth are always exaggerated and overly abused. And even if it's true, then well, she's just doing her thing, nobody's forcing you to listen to her anyway, so stop listening if you think something's ain't right with it. Why continue doing something you know will leave negative impacts on you?

Such so, you say she's doing illumination, then why are you wasting your time to listen to her songs? Personally speaking, i've never been a fan of Gaga. Yes, i've heard her songs, but no, i've never listened to it. Fine line over there. Why? Because i'm not one who engages in something that I don't believe in. I personally don't believe in her music. So there.

Maybe it's not all the illumination thing that's tugging my faith off her music, nor is her freak-like way of dressing, but it's just herself. A person who hides behind an unknown identity is just a scared pussy to me. If you want to be known, at least let us see your face without all those heavy make-ups on. If you can't prove yourself worth, then there's no reason for me to have even a tiny bit of faith on you.

Yeah yeah, I know she said she used to be bullied in school and this and that. But you're earning millions now, do you seriously still have to hide behind all those weird painting on your face? Or are you just scared of something you're uncertain of? Now it seems like i'm hating on her. Pfffft. Seriously people, no, I ain't hating on her. I just don't trust her.

Back to her music, I still don't get how Paparazzi has got to do with illumination, or how Poker Face has anything to do with it. Judas, however, i've never heard of. But even if it is, who bloody cares?

The root to all this commotion is it comes back to ourselves, stop asking why is she trying to influence us through her music, and all those dumb questions, better off, start asking how strong is your faith, and how high is your trust for yourself. If you think you can handle it, be my guest. But if you're not that tough, get away from it. And if you're uncertain, just avoid it.

After all, the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. did said :
"It is clear what is Halal, and which was clearly Haram. And between the two, there are matters that are still unclear (syubhah) which is unknown to manhood, so whoever watches those things, that he has avoided syubhah, he has indeed frees himself with the religion and honor and those who fell in matters of syubhah, then it has fallen into Haram."

p/s: Sorry, I'm not going to post Gaga's photo here. No, I'm not a hater, I just don't like the idea of having her photo in my blog. No offense given nor taken.
