I have been a fan of Ariana since around 2013-2014. I have also been a follower of this website for years, since circa 2011, and I am well aware of the symbolism surrounding her but I have always just been so enthralled with her voice that I have dismissed the symbolism and continued to be a fan, regardless. I’m sure there are some of you out there who dismiss the symbolism too. She recently came out with a new single: God is a woman.. and I was excited to hear it. I felt like her songs were taking a more positive, less sexual turn. Immediately when I heard this song I was just appalled. With lyrics like “baby, lay me down and let’s pray”, “take my hand, I’ll save your soul,” “if you confess, you might get blessed” “when all is said and done (previous lyrics alluding to sex) you’ll believe god is a woman” the song is pretty much equating her sexuality and ability to seduce to being God. As a young Christian woman, I find that to be extremely blasphemous. I know in Kabbalah, the religion she openly follows, there are teachings that basically equate man to god. Or man being his own god. This song is just so perverted, narcissistic, and sickening to me. I know most of her songs are about sex anyways, but I am just taken aback at the content. Her fans are soooo viciously loyal to her, they love the song and I would be afraid to openly diss it right now, but I know some of you will probably agree. What do you guys think of the song? Do you think I am interpreting it the wrong way?
