Singer Lady Gaga offends Mencap
The controversial singer’s latest single Born This Way was criticised for sounding like the pop queen’s 80s tune Express Yourself.
‘Why would I try and put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody?’ Lady Gaga, 25, asked NME. ‘That’s retarded.’
A leading charity says Lady Gaga‘s choice of word was a ‘slur’ against people with learning disabilities.
‘It’s an unfortunate choice of words,’ a Mencap spokesman tells The Sun. ‘Particularly from someone so influential.’
