Twitter Files: India.Arie Sounds Off On Lady Gaga And Her “Telephone” Video!

- By Bossip Staff Categories: For Discussion, Hollyweird, News

The criticism keeps coming in about Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” video. Last week India.Arie voiced her opinion that the video was going a bit too far via her Twitter account. Pop the hood for details.


India claimed her issue wasn’t with the the nudity in the video so much as the dark elements and unspoken back story that disturbed her. She also said Gaga’s influence and ability to turn the taboo into trend were also troubling. Here are the rest of her tweets:

India also shared a little story about meeting a young fan whose mother wouldn’t allow her child to watch the “Telephone” video!

Does anyone find it ironic that Miss “I Am Not My Hair” is going in on another artist about their image? Is her persona troubling to others as well, or do you think India should leave her alone?

Just curious how many of you agree with her about Gaga being socially irresponsible? Anybody else feel her videos are inappropriate for children to watch? What aspect of the video is the most problematic in your opinion?

    Anyone who believes that India Arie is “just hating” or “jealous” is young minded and lacks the mental capacity to comprehend dryer lint. JMHO.

    OF COURSE EVERYONE WHO HATES LADY GAGA IS GONNA DEFEND THAT BALD HEADED LEBRON JAMES! LADY GAGA TAKIN OVER!

  • MsConsciousOne

    @Hannibal, we are not defending her, we are standing in agreement.

  • Hannibal

    OH MY BAD, OF COURSE IT ISN’T HATING, BUT IF LADY GAGA WAS CRITICIZING SOMEONE, IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED HATING, I GET IT NOW, SMH!

    INDIA is the ish and that is real music the she puts out not this B/S that GAGA ane BEY BEY puttn out!

  • Kev

    Man I am a big India Arie fan. Although I’m not sure I agree she should address this situation in that manner, but she is a woman over the age of 30 and we all see alot of crazy things going on with children. Do you know children between the ages of 13-24 are catching HIV at an alarming rate?.. I think we need to step up and STOP accepting material from artist that could jeopardize our children’s future. We should continue to critique all unhuman acts. REAL TALK!!

  • K-mia

    India’s lyrics are average…she had one good album, and her song topics are repetitive. Im not crazy about Gaga but India Arie is much less interesting

  • Hannibal

    @K-MIA

    THANK YOU! SO TRUE!

    @PAM#2

    WELL THAT’S NOT FAIR!

  • realwoman

    “Does anyone find it ironic that Miss “I Am Not My Hair” is going in on another artist about their image? ”

    Are you all for real with this statement???? Since when on a ‘supposedly’ Black site would anyone insinuate that that song is anything but uplifting to our people??? Versus a negative song about the artists own personal image….more signs this site either got some serious OREOS running it or non blacks…..

    @BABYGIRL
