Mother Monster at iHeartRadio Music Festival

September 27, 2011 Leave a comment

It was really great to see Stefani being a little more herself the other night at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. It’s not that I mind her being outrageous, even if she does go a little far sometimes… Considering how much her beautiful voice was clearly hampered by illness, it was still a fantastic show, even if most of her hits were played in abbreviated versions. It was just great to see Stefani without all the wigs and crazy costumes and make-up. I know that’s just how the character of Lady Gaga is played, and I don’t have any trouble with it. But honestly, she’s prettiest and sexiest when she’s just herself.

Obviously, the most touching moment of the night was her dedication of “Hair” to poor Jamey, who took his own life at the tender age of fourteen. “Bullying is for losers,” she said. It really is. It’s really awesome that we at least have one person in this world who gives a shit about how fucked up things truly are and uses her fame to speak out against them. All of the haters need to shut up and really listen to what she has to say, because she’s made a difference in so many millions of lives, including mine. Just a few months ago, I thought she was just going to be another flash in the pan pop sensation, but clearly that is not the case, and I am so glad that God blessed this world with her.

Her two songs with Sting were absolutely fantastic, too. Even most musicians are freaked out by her, but as is no surprise to anyone, Sting is awesome. Just hearing her sing “Stand By Me” made my life…

Forget iHeartRadio. I heart Stefani ❤

God bless you, Mother Monster!
