Um...Is Lady Gaga Trolling Us on Social Media?

A mystery is born

Mother Monster has been up to nothing BUT good lately. Performing in not one but *two* Las Vegas residencies, whilst also casually releasing her own cosmetics line, Haus Laboratories, it’s safe to say Gags is killin’ it. Considering she was captial-B busy, just a few months ago, she went through a Twitter drought, firing off just a tweet or two every couple weeks. In order to keep updated on my fave, I of course turned her Twitter notifications. One tweet notification every two weeks? That, I can manage.

But then, one day, it happened. Lady Gaga, pop star, sometime jazz singer, fashion idol, cosmetics mogul, gay *icon*, tweeted a meme:

It’s a known fact that Gaga is historically a *very* proud Italian, to say the absolute least. Just search “Gaga Italian” on YouTube to watch countless compilations of Lady Gaga talking about her Italian pride.

But a meme?! Seeing Gaga tweet a meme gives me the same feeling I get whenever my dad tries to describe a GIF to me in person (“Have you seen that G.I.F. of the dog, and he goes over to the window, and then there’s another dog and…”). Cringe. But Gaga wasn’t stopping with just one random meme, and has been sharing Twitter riddles ever since.

Here are some of my recent faves that Lady Gaga has shared on social media that make us wonder if she’s truly trolling us—like, is she trying to be funny, or is she poking fun at old people who try to sound hip? Scientists may never know. And please keep in mind that these are REAL TWEETS from Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta a.k.a. Lady Gaga that do in fact still exist on Twitter Dot Com.

I mean, she’s performing in Las Vegas! I’m not sure whether she’s talking about how beat her makeup is, or just how cinched her waist is. But regardless, do we know for sure that she looked good at the exact time of this tweet? Of corset! (See what I did there?)

OK, hold the “Telephone.”

Lady Gaga is a genuine punk in every sense of the word. As modern as she may be, I find it very difficult to believe that she would even consider trading a classically badass (if bad for your health) cigarette for a dorky vape. This could be a tepid attempt to stop kids from smoking? Hmm. Will have to get back to you on that one.

*Sigh* This one just hurt. Not only is she teasing about her next album that seems eons away, she’s reminding us that Adele has not released an album since 2015 (four years y’all). She KNEW what she was doing with this one!

Honestly, I couldn’t tell ya either babe.

Oh, um….what? This definitely is not a meme, this is a Sanskrit prayer used to close traditional yoga practices. The phrase translates roughly to “May all beings everywhere be free and happy.” I somehow don’t think this means we’re getting a Hindi rendition of “Born This Way.” That being said, ’80s Bollywood disco producer (wild phrase, eh?) Bappi Lahiri recently stated in an interview that the two of them have *allegedly* recorded two songs together in a mix of Hindi and English. Lady Gaga has not yet commented on this possible collaboration, so don’t get your hopes up just yet.

Here, Gaga has responded to YouTube personality Alexis Zall, with a literal answer to a joke. This tweet is either entirely genius, or completely not—I still can’t decide.

Simple, yet effective. This is *truly* a political statement. 280 characters to capture how we all feel about the state of the world? How about one, hun!

Once again, becoming more and more self-aware with every day. And also supporting our one and only, Lizzo? We *have* to stan.

Guess we know what her favourite holiday is not? But Gaga—Halloween is Gay Christmas! This feels sacrilegious and like a betrayal TBH.

Enough said.

Okay hear me out. New album title? I would listen the absolute *heck* out of an album named Chinese Broccoli.

So in conclusion, I have no idea whether Gaga is seriously tweeting these things, or whether she is just having the time of her life. Either way, I know I’m *never* turning her tweet notifications off.
