WTF of The Day: Lady Gaga Goes Country

Because she doesn't hear her songs in enough Country Western bars and she's dissatisfied with only being Elton freaking John's son's godmother AND because she feels there aren't enough headlines spawned from the sheer mention of her name, Lady Gaga did the logical thing and created a country version of her smash hit "Born This Way" (see: ripoff of "Express Yourself"). Personally, I've disliked "Born This Way" since the song hit the Grammy stage in a mess of dinosaur egg yolk and giant latex condom scraps and I've never been a fan of country music so the combination of the two is like a set of rhinestone-and-steak-encrusted fingernails on a Versace chalkboard (a.k.a. pretentiously useless and still impossible to listen to). The one good thing is that Gaga is donating the proceeds from the sale of this new version to the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), but you know what's better? How about you skip the awful song and donate your dollar to the organization directly instead? It's that bad.
