Lady Gaga on Lennon's Piano

Recently, Sean Lennon tweeted a picture of Lady Gaga playing on the piano John Lennon gave his wife Yoko Ono for her birthday.

Bad Romancer

When I first saw it, I was like, "Aw, hey, would ya look at that." then I though, "Oh uh, rabid fans will start an uproar."

And true enough, they're complaining about Gaga playing on the white piano.

One fan tweeted, "WHY WOULD YOU LET LADY GAGA PLAY ON JOHN'S PIANO? I'm disappointed. >:("

To which Sean Lennon replied, "pianos [are meant] to be played. Why is everyone so uptight? What should we do, lock it away in a dusty room? So judgmental..."

and I was like, "F*CK YEAH, SEAN!!"

'Coz what the hell, right? First of all, it ain't your piano...it's Yoko Ono's...so if Yoko Ono says you can play, then you can play.

Second, Lady Gaga started classical piano when she was 4, wrote her first keyboard ballad at 13, and majored in it over at NYU so I think she knows what to do with a piano. It's not like she's peeing on the damn thing.

Third, like what Sean Lennon said, pianos are meant to be played. I think alot of people would agree with me when I say that John Lennon would rather have the keys played than it just be kept there gathering dust.

Fourth, John Lennon was all about peace. Make love, not war. Sean Lennon's right: "...he was not uptight the way you seem to be. Come on, lighten up...life's too short, there're enough real problems in the world...."

Now you know my opinion. What do you guys think, though?
