Joanne (Deluxe) is an album done by Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga’s real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. She has six Grammy Awards and has been nominated for twenty-four awards in total. Although Joanne is also one of Gaga’s middle names, when Gaga announced the album, she explained that it was named after Joanne Germanotta, her late aunt. Gaga had never met her aunt. Her aunt died with lupus,
Perfect Illusion, which is quite obvious, is a song about love. But, it isn’t about a happy love story, it’s about an illusion that seemed like love. This song helps to refer to social media. Many people fall in love over social media, however, it is not real love: it’s an illusion. Even though this song isn’t about actual love, the meaning behind it is different. Gaga wants her fans to take the idea that “it’s okay to have contact with people whom you don’t have a true love exchange with”. Even though this song might have a sort of saddening message, it is very upbeat. It is a perfect song to dance and sing along to at parties or just in your room. If you like pop and Lady Gaga, this is the song for you.
Million Reasons is one of Lady Gaga’s sadder songs on her album. It is about a relationship that someone shouldn’t be in, but cannot let go. This song is a country song filled with funk and rock ‘n’ roll. Whenever Gaga performs this song on stage, she always sits out with her guitar and sings. The guitar is the main feature in the song. This song is not at all a party song. It would completely kill the party, because of the meaning behind the lyrics. It wouldn’t even work as a slow dance song at a party. However, if you need some encouragement to help you get through something, this may be the perfect song for you.
A lot of songs in Joanne (Deluxe) are about moving forward, no matter how hard and painful it is. It is also about believing in yourself because only you can make things happen and change for you to be better. This album is definitely for someone who likes different types of genres because Gaga includes different types of beats in each song. It is also for someone who likes the new Lady Gaga. Gaga’s voice and presence have changed a lot over the past five years. She a different type of person. Maybe her new music might intrigue you.
