Another work of Art from Lady Gaga....Lay off, GSN Hatena & CSM..

This album lives up to everything i hoped for. It's a really good choice for any Lady Gaga fan! It may have sex and profanity, but it isn't THAT inappropiate. You can ever hear that stuff at school!

INCREDIBLE

This is a great Lady Gaga Album, although it may not be appropriate, it sounds amazing and the songs are great to dance too. 5 stars.

A track-by-track examination

Alright, this album isn't really all that inappropriate - aside from two songs that there are clean versions for or you can easily just rule out. Just going to go through the tracks and address the inappropriate content they may have. Understand that despite there being a song or two about sex, it isn't necessarily crude or meant to be and rather artistic. Aura - Devoid of explicit lyrics, though a specific verse has been found controversial among religious groups ("enigma popstar is fun, she wear burqa for fashion") and in two brief lines she sings "dance, sex, artpop, tech", but it doesn't particularly stick out and she never goes further than that. Venus - Venus is somewhat obviously about sex (but what song nowadays isn't?) but there are no explicit lyrics other than "a--" near the end of the song. If you're bothered by that one little word, there's a clean version out there. G.U.Y. - An acronym for "Girl Under You" that is mostly clean aside from the line at the beginning in which she briefly states, "Greetings Himeros, god of sexual desire!" X Dreams - This song I would highly suggest keeping from your kids. It doesn't have any curse words but the subject of the song is beyond obvious and there are some minorly dirty words to be found. Jewels N' Drugs - Another dirty rap track that I would also keep from your kids. The word "p---y" is used by guest rappers, among other words. The clean version doesn't do much considering the song is loaded with bad language and it is still pretty much audible even with the blurs. MANiCURE - Clean. The subject of the song isn't dirty either. Do What U Want - S--t is used once. Clean version is available and isn't even regarded as explicit. Swine - A-- is used once, though not classified as explicit. Donatella - B*tch is used in the opening line. Again, a clean version is available. Fashion! - Entirely clean song entirely about just what the title suggests. Mary Jane Holland - P--- is used once, but it isn't even classified as explicit nor does it stick out. Dope - The f-word is used once. Very depressing and personal track. Clean version is available that removes that word from it. Gypsy - Clean dance track. Applause - Kid-friendly and almost a hundred-percent clean song. Some lyrics may seem dirty to those who are older (give me that feeling that I love / turn the lights off / put your hands up / make it real loud) but the actual meaning isn't dirty by any means. Not very dirty as a whole, X Dreams and Jewels N' Drugs obviously are but those can easily be restricted (and are the worst songs on the album regardless) Good album as a whole with an occasional word. The subjects are no more inappropriate than most mainstream pop, though there are still some mature ones. Born This Way is much more clean than this and features better messages, so I'd probably suggest that for the younger group. Great album for teens 14 and up.

Ok for kids 14+, maybe 12+ if REALLY mature!

Lady GaGa is known for her amazing songs! This album is her best so far, especially Applause and Artpop. The songs sport some language and sexual innuendo, especially G.U.Y. Overall, it is a good album for probably 14+!

great

artpop is a really good but kind of inappropriate album. there is a lot of sexually lyrics on this album and some swearing. the album Artpop is really good but kids under the age of 14 should not listen to it

Mixed Messages sent from Lady Gaga's newest album, Artpop

The newest album from controversial pop singer Lady Gaga sends mixed messages, per it references sexual material that may be inappropriate for kids 12 and under. But on the other hand, Lady Gaga could be considered a positive role model. She may wear wild outfits, but she is all about being yourself.

The real review (with the good songs)

Here is the true reason why all of these are explicit Aura - it says "killed" which was the only reason it got the explicit tag. Venus - it says "a--" G.U.Y - "greetings from Eros, God of sexual desire" (Im not going to review X Dreams and Jewels N' Drugs because I hate those) MANICURE - clean Do What U Want - "s---" "blunt" ARTPOP - clean Swine - "a--" Donatella - "b*tch" Fashion - clean Mary Jane Holland - honestly, the only bad word is piss, and it is uncensored in the clean version... Gypsy & Applause - clean This is officially why the tracks I like are explicit!
