Known for her deep, soul-searching lyrics and guitar-laden hits, Grammy-nominated singer India.Arie has based her career on socially conscious, uplifting music. In several postings on her Twitter page, the Atlanta-based singer slammed Lady Gaga, a flamboyant pop star, for her latest video for “Telephone,” which also features Beyoncé.

“I agree gaga is being her image . . . I dig her creative mind But still . . . There’s a such thing as socially irresponsible (sic),” the singer tweeted. ?

She added, “I respect the creative mind but disagree with the ‘choices’ as a dish meant to be served for mass consumption . . . Crazy to me that the Dark, underbelly, shock at all cost thing is a TREND like asymmetrical hair and big shoulder jackets. Slippery slope!”
