FASHION and MUSIC: Born This Way by Lady Gaga Starring RicoRacer Flux

BORN THIS WAY

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Zachary Zufreur

INFO: This is my tribute to the song “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga. I love this song because it is about loving who you are and loving everyone who seems different in the eyes of society. YES, I purposely wore female clothing and accessories to prove a point. There has been some flak about male models wearing feminine items. I say WHO CARES? Be who you are and wear what you want. Express yourself and don’t let anyone put you down especially in SL where you should be free as long as you are not hurting others. Remember, the unique and extraordinary are what people remember and love the most. Ty to my sis Lovely for taking me shopping. LOL.

FASHION: Top/Corset by The Abyss, HeaddGear by SoliDea FolliEs, Gloves by Graves and Stiletto by NeurolaB Inc.

BORN THIS WAY

INTRO:
It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M

cause you were Born This Way, Baby.

MY MAMA TOLD ME WHEN I WAS YOUNG,
WE ARE ALL BORN SUPERSTARS.
SHE ROLLED MY HAIR AND PUT MY LIPSTICK ON
IN THE GLASS OF HER BOUDOIR.
“THERE’S NOTHIN WRONG WITH LOVIN WHO YOU ARE”
SHE SAID, “‘CAUSE HE MADE YOU PERFECT, BABE”
“SO HOLD YOUR HEAD UP  AND YOU’LL GO FAR,
LISTEN TO ME WHEN I SAY…”

I’M BEAUTIFUL IN MY WAY
‘CAUSE GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES
I’M ON THE RIGHT TRACK BABY
I WAS BORN THIS WAY.
DON’T HIDE YOURSELF IN REGRET
JUST LOVE YOURSELF AND YOU’RE SET.
I’M ON THE RIGHT TRACK BABY,
I WAS BORN THIS WAY.

OOO THERE AIN’T NO OTHER WAY
BABY I WAS BORN THIS WAY
BABY I WAS BORN THIS WAY.
DON’T BE A DRAG -JUST BE A QUEEN
DON’T BE A DRAG -JUST BE A QUEEN
DON’T BE A DRAG -JUST BE A QUEEN
DON’T BE!

GIVE YOURSELF PRUDENCE
AND LOVE YOUR FRIENDS.
SUBWAY KID, REJOICE YOUR TRUTH.
IN THE RELIGION OF THE INSECURE,
I MUST BE MYSELF, RESPECT MY YOUTH.
A DIFFERENT LOVER IS NOT A SIN.
BELIEVE CAPITAL H-I-M (HEY HEY HEY).
I LOVE MY LIFE I LOVE THIS RECORD AND
MI AMORE VOLE FE YAH (LOVE NEEDS FAITH).

DON’T BE A DRAG, JUST BE A QUEEN
WHETHER YOU’RE BROKE OR EVERGREEN
YOU’RE BLACK, WHITE, BEIGE, CHOLA DESCENT
YOU’RE LEBANESE, YOU’RE ORIENT.
WHETHER LIFE’S DISABILITIES
LEFT YOU OUTCAST, BULLIED, OR TEASED.
REJOICE AND LOVE YOURSELF TODAY
‘CAUSE BABY YOU WERE BORN THIS WAY.

NO MATTER GAY, STRAIGHT, OR BI,
LESBIAN, TRANSGENDERED LIFE.
I’M ON THE RIGHT TRACK BABY
