Wow…you and this Luigi fella are really reading into the lyrics. I don’t think Gaga has any sort of political agenda here, nor do I at all interpret it as a manifesto about open government.

I did see a post from someone who saw her perform this song at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. She apparently stated to the audience that she herself is a government hooker, and explained that she’s a hooker, but she still pays her taxes and does her service for the government.

Of course, my guess is she just wants you to grab a cocktail, put your hands in the air, and dance. Either way, great artists inspire people to discuss issues, which is exactly what we’re doing here.

One last thing, I’m hardly “the next generation,” and I consider myself a “little monster.”
