After the egg/womb shenanigans at the Grammy Awards last weekend, it’s understandable to be more than a little Gaga-inundated. That said- give this girl right here a chance.
10-year-old Maria Aragon of Toronto, Canada posted video of her covering Wednesday morning and already, it has gotten one million hits. As little Maria croon out Lady Gaga’s new single, “Born This Way,” its easy to see why. Not only is she adorable, her harping on her keyboard keys and chanting “Don’t be a drag, just be a queen” is priceless.
While it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of Gaga’s theatrics, this stripped down cover from a girl barely old enough to have live through all the lyrics show the heart of the music. For the view times I’ve heard “Born This Way,” Maria’s version may very well be the one I like best.
She may be channelling Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” but seems Lady Gaga’s music is connecting- and that’s universal, no?
