Someone please explain Babylon to me

Lighter

Why Babylon? Why do they need to battle for their life and wear ancient city style? Are they not allowed to be fashionable in there?

Gaga said it’s about gossip, so maybe her battling for the truth of her life while being hit with crazy rumor after rumor?

the song is about gossip. It's a play with "babble on"

I'm assuming it's a DWUW styled "say what you want, write what you want, I'll still be here fighting for my life and my work"

Gossip turned into "babble".

"Babble on" sounds like "Babylon" so they gave the song an ancient city gimmick.

I can't wait to hear this freaking song :bradley: I love when she's got a ton of attitude behind her in songs

Somebody please have mercy 'cause I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT!

I believe it's a double entendre. Historically, Babylon the city and references to that as well as "babble-on" which is a homophone and I guess alludes to Gaga's comment about gossip.

Perhaps Battle for Your Life in Babylon means to survive in a world full of gossip, rumors, and fake news.

Babylon is about the gossip that Gaga's had to deal with, so it would be interesting to see how Gaga adds in those historical references along with the "babble on" part of the song :ally:

It seems more like a ballroom voguing song. I can picture drag queens voguing the house down with it.
