Lady Gaga leaked ‘Burqa’ song on sensitising Muslim women draws criticism

 

 

I don’t know…normally I like Lady Gaga. She has a great voice, but this song sucks!!

Washington, Aug. 15 (ANI): America pop sensation Lady Gaga’s new song from her upcoming album has drawn criticism over sexualizing the traditional dress of Muslim women, Burqa, and the women wearing it.

 

The song in question is currently unnamed, but rumors suggest it will be named “Burqa,” which is the name of a particular Arabic style of dress commonly associated with Muslim women.

 

The lyrics that goes as: ‘I’m not a wandering slave, I’m a woman of choice … My veil is protection for the gorgeousness of my face’ reportedly echoed what many Muslim women mention as their reasons for wearing the hijab, niqab, or burqa, the Washington Times reports.

 

The song’s lyrics have misused the meaning of Burqa making it embarrassing for Muslim women. The chorus goes as: ‘Do you want to see me naked, lover? Do you want to peek underneath the cover? Do you want to see the girl who lives behind the aura? … Do you wanna touch me? Let’s make love.’

 

The lyrics could generate images that dehumanize and degrade burqa-wearing women and turn them into objective things, the report added.
