India Arie Says Lady Gaga Telephone Video Was ‘Socially Irresponsible’


India Arie is not really feeling  Lady Gaga and Beyonce ‘Telephone’ music video. Arie believes it is irresponsible and that the pop stars have gone “too far” with the amount of sexuality used in the video. So she expressed herself on Twitter:

Don’t be offended this is all MY opinion… Am I the only one who thinks the “telephone” video is going a bit too far?
I’m not referring to the abstract nature of the video … I’m talking about the IMAGERY – the unspoken back story, the language the message

I agree gaga is being her image .. I dig her creative mind But still … Thers a such thing as socially irresponsible… I’m just sayin.

Its not long before somebody does a straight NAKED video. Not like Alanis morrisette “thank you india” like NAKED dancing around. LOLhahaha

Let’s be CLEAR! I know it gaga M.O. – I don’t live under a rock. And I get that a lot of work put into it. I’m talking social responsability

Indie even said:

There’s an artist ever 10 years who pushes the envelope … but its bout to fall off the Table. When is it too far?
I respect the creative mind but disagree with the “choices” as a dish meant to be served for mass consumption ..
Crazy to me that the Dark, underbelly, s shock at all cost thing is a TREND like asymetrical hair and big shoulder jackets .Slippery slope!
Love life. 6 year old at the store old her mom say who’s your favorite singer

This girl is CUTE! She says “india arie” “aaaaaand?” Her mom promotes her she says “beyonce “aaaand” her mom says again “Lady gaga”

Mom turns to me and says “but I won’t let her watch the “telephone” lolhahahaahha! Haha! Tooo Funny.

Do you think that Arie is trying to stay relevant by making these controversial comments, or do you think she is right,  there is too much nudity in the clip? Anyhow…we all have remote controls. Turn the channel if you don’t want to see it.

    Sit yo ass down India…There’s nothing wrong with her video so what, do think artist video’s should be BORING like yours?

  7. Whose Is says:

    I agree with India. Someone has to stand up and say something. They should show some responsibility with the amount of power they hold in their hands being famous celebrities. It’s not safe to let your kids watch music video shows at all anymore. Thank goodness for Nickjr.
