GaGa has said sorry for using the offensive word in an interview…
As we previously reported, the eccentric songstress had used the derogatory term when referring to those who made similarities between her single, Born This Way, and Madonna‘s 1989 hit, Express Yourself.
GaGa stated to NME: “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded.”
After being slammed for using the term, with Mencap even commenting on GaGa’s “unfortunate choice of words”, Lady G has now apologised. In a statement to celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton, the Judas singer claimed: “I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance.”
“My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional.”
GaGa added: “An honest mistake, requires honesty to make. Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.”
