Critics chime in on Lady Gaga’s latest single

MUSIC-GRAMMYS/LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Lady Gaga has done it again. The singer, whose lyrics like to toe the controversy line, released “Judas,” the latest track off of her new album Born This Way on Friday — a few days earlier than its originally scheduled April 19 drop date.

It appears the author and editor misunderstand the meaning of the idiom “toe the line.”

It’s a surprising error from such a well-regarded news source.
