She wear burqa for fashion
The burqa is not your fashion statement, not your orientalist dream to consume.
Many people took that highly offensive it has spawned a tumblr page showing the ignorance behind this cultural appropriation of the burqa. A highly racist move for Gaga lets hope she’s learned a thing or two about cultural appropriation since she last wore a burqa.
It could just be satire of the way she’s commonly represented.
Both this line and the following line are spoken in an omnipotent third person tense, it could be inferred that these are just conceptions of what’s underneath the “aura”.
Gaga could be preempting the criticisms the media is going to give her for this song, on the basis of the criticisms she received the first time she wore the burqa.
The following line seems to be a more accurate representation of what she herself is thinking; that it’s not a political statement, OR an incorporation of a controversial popular culture into her music just for the sake of it, rather that it’s a creative inception derived from artistic passion.
