'Born This Way,' Lady Gaga
What everyone can agree on is that Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” is a huge anthem – even if we can’t reach a consensus on exactly what it’s championing. Some say it’s a gay anthem, others say it’s a song of underdogs of every stripe. As Perez Hilton wrote, “[‘Born This Way’ is] a universal song that can relate to everyone, [t]o all of us outsiders, to all of us freaks, to all of us who feel different. And the music is undeniable."
