What do you think of this video? adult content

Creative?  Entertainment? Offensive? Sacrilegious? Or other?

I think it's very creative and a great song, but I can see how it would be offensive to some.  Just curious about other opinions.

  • I think it was creative if a bit grotesque, but I'm sure it was meant to be. I didn't find it offensive at all. It reminded me very much of the Aliens movies. Not my personal favorite song or artist, but I have to give her props for being so gutsy.

  • Loved the song, not to keen on the video. I loved it when the Glee cast performed it........or maybe I'm just a total dork that doesn't understand the full artistic perspective of today's recording artists.

  • Not my taste in music ... the video is creatively odd. The song is okay ... I do like the meaning behind it though.

  • I actually like this song (the music anyway, I'm not that fond of the video, just not my taste). I don't think it's blasphemous or "sacrilegious", lol. I like the message of the lyrics, I think in a society that is constantly pushing for this ideal of perfectionism - one that isn't even attainable - it's important to have someone singing about being who you are, that people are "perfect" the way they are, whether they're black or gay or whatever else (just using a couple of descriptions from the song). I think it's important to have that kind of empowerment coming from the "media", when it seems like so much of the media is pushing for this superficial, fake, beauty and perfection, etc....

  • Occasional well done creative moments surrounded by a big pile of derivative (see: Madonna, Barbarella, every sci fi movie made before 1970). I like her message, I just wish should could find an original way to share it once in a while.
