Both Cuomo, a politician, and Grande, a pop star, present a vision of God that is alternative to recent tradition: God as a benevolent feminist mentor, and God as the ultimate source of sensual pleasure. And both prophets speak their visions, above all, for their own aggrandizement. Cuomo positions himself as a man who straddles tradition and the cutting edge, a governor for all seasons and all paternal figures, while Grande positions herself as the creamy foam on the breaching third wave of feminism — a sex symbol who derives her power from the pleasure she can give to men, the warm-bodied incarnation of female empowerment with a kind of celestial supremacy. Neither the third-term hopeful nor the pop-princess do anything terribly wrong by God — certainly nothing outside of the proud tradition of politicians and artists as theologians. But they do give us a good opportunity to discuss the belief Grande posits her lovers will hold after a night in her company — that God is a woman. Several instances in the Scriptures suggest a female form of God. The prophets Isaiah and Hosea describe God as a mother, a woman giving birth, and as a mother bear. Kabbalists developed the idea of a female aspect of God, the Shekhina , in the Zohar. But the common consensus is that God is gender-less — or in more radical circles, gender-queer.
Typically, all the questions about a song's meaning get answered by the release of the music video, but every so often, someone like Ariana Grande comes along to keep fans guessing. If you're wondering what the "God Is A Woman" video means , you're not alone. The newly-released clip is packed with symbolism, unusual imagery, and unapologetic sexuality, all of which combines into one unique package encouraging female empowerment. The video was released on Friday at noon, just 12 hours after Grande dropped the track. As you might guess from the track's title, the underlying theme throughout the "God Is a Woman" video is the strength of womanhood, which Grande highlights in the video's first moments. As she gyrates in the middle of the Milky Way, it suggests that feminine energy is at the center of everything, a message that becomes a constant throughout the video. In one image, Grande sits atop the globe, trailing her fingers through weather patterns, causing what appear to be hurricanes wherever she dips her fingers below the surface.
