Asked about the legalization of gay marriage in the state of New York, Lady Gaga said, “I can’t stop crying. We did it kids. The revolution is ours to fight.”
Her Born This Way song, from 2011, is probably not much more than a copy of Madonna’s Express Yourself, but is seen as a celebration of empowerment for gays, lesbians and so on.
“Don’t be a drag, just be a Queen,” she raps.
The basic definition of a revolution is a major change, such as in political institutions. The French Revolution (1789-1799), American Revolution (last half of 18th century) and Russian Revolution (1917) are three examples.
Lady Gaga is referring to a more expansive definition of revolution, that can include social change.
(The state of New York is the sixth and largest state to legalize gay marriage, in June 2011.)
