Lady Gaga Changing Her Tune?

Admittedly, I like Lady Gaga, or used to like her. She reminds me of a type of a younger Madonna – someone who is theatrical, a rule breaker, line crosser but talented and able to reinvent herself.  

Lately, however, her theatrics have become  increasingly bizarre in a way that is following the trend toward S&M with androgynous themes. Her latest video, Alejandro, mixes explicitly Catholic themes and costumes. (Warning: this is offensive)

None of this really moves me one way or the other –  I guess I’ve become inured and don’t care to watch Gaga videos, along with a host of others. 

So, I wonder if the news that Gaga has signed a convent of cloistered nuns from the Abbaye de Notre Dame de L’Annociation near Avignon, France, is another Madonna-like twist, or if her interest in the nuns’ music, and what it offers is genuine?
