It must be magical!

DJ Whiteshadow, one of the featured producers on Born This Way, revealed what it was like working with Lady GaGa. Calling her new single, Government Hooker, a "beast" of a song, he had nothing but praise for the GaGaloo. He said:

[Born This Way] is not a pop album; it’s a pop masterpiece of music. If there was no category of pop music, you wouldn’t call it pop music.

We were in this studio in Vegas, and I was playing some hip-hop stuff [for GaGa's label boss Vince Herbert], and I ran across this [old beat I had made], and we were talking about faster songs, so I sped it up and I played it for Vince. He was like, 'Whoa.' She walked in, and I played it for her and [producer] Fernando [Garibay]. She laid it out in two seconds. She sang over the melody and tuned it up and put the chorus in. She finished it super quick."

Going into more detail about GaGa's amazingness, he added:

"The guy that’s actually talking, that’s her security guard. We were sitting there thinking how to make a computerized voice, so we were like, 'Let’s get Pete in here. He’s got a super-thick Dutch accent, and he’s trying to read off paper. It was insane, and he just talks like that.

That’s what it’s like working with GaGa. It’s like a f—ing supernova. When she walks into a room, things explode. She thinks of sh– that I can’t comprehend. It doesn’t make sense to me, and I’m a creative person."

He then went on to speak about how he sees Lady GaGa as a person and an artist.

"Working with her is totally different than anyone else I’ve ever done anything with. She’s the most hands-on person I’ve ever run into. She could walk into Steve Jobs’ office and tell him he’s doing Apple wrong, and he’d listen. As a producer, it’s super cool to be with somebody who generally cares and is fully involved."

And that's why her music is so awesome! We know the rest of Born This Way is going to be incredible!

    Real kudos to this fuckface…..she made the song in two seconds to a "beat" he's had for years that was sped up. Then they bring in the security guard to do the vocals, HOW AWESOME AND PROFOUND…….THEY'RE SOOOOOOOOO DEEP

    She really is AMAZING. QUEEN GAGA. SO many people within the industry speak so highly of her. It's funny that all the jerks who say negative things about her in these comments think they have to ability to bring her down.



  8. 8

    THEY ALSO SAMPLED THE CURE SONG "LULLABY' IN THIS SONG… WHICH 100 % WAS NOT AUTHORIZED I MAY ADD…

    THIS WOMAN IS A GOOD SINGER -NO DOUBT ABOUT IT… BUT MAYBE IF SHE PUT ALL THIS SO CALLED "CREATIVITY" INTO HER MUSIC AND NOT HER CLOTHES OR VIDEOS SHE WOULDNT ALWAYS BE COMPARED TO MADONNA. BORN THIS WAY SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED EXPRESS YOURSELF 2011 : YAH BUT SHES REALLY CREATIVE…?

    OH, AND IM PRETTY SURE STEVE JOBS WOULDNT TAKE HER ADVICE ON HIS MULTI BILLION DOLLAR EMPIRE… WHAT STUPID THING TO SAY

    SOUNDS LIKE SHE'S SURROUNDED HERSELF WITH A LOT OF "YES PEOPLE" AND THATS ALWAYS A RECIPE FOR DISASTER…

    Re: GayRay – Dude, just because you don't like her doesn't mean that others don't. Give it up and go listen to whatever you like. Your opinion means absolutely nothing to anyone besides yourself.



  13. 13

    The bigger the hype, the harder the fall.

    Re: M: – Wow bitch, get your facts straight if you're going to come on here and (make lady gaga even more famous haha stupid bitch) talk shit. You talk about Madonna working soooo hard…Umm…when was Madonna's last album? Umm….2008?? THREE years ago? Umm does Madonna write all of her own music? Lady Gaga sure does, she writes or co-writes EVERY SINGLE SONG, ummm does Madonna play any instrument well? Nope, negative, Lady Gaga plays piano. Is Madonna on tour? negative. Lady Gaga has been on tour for most of the past three years..It took Madonna almost FOUR years for her to even begin her first tour back in the 80's
    Make sure you know what you're talking about before you say it.
    XOXO

    Re: MOVE OVER MADONNA :) – Please, whatever you can say about Madonna, Gags will NEVER get the respect she does nor have the same legacy. Too bad (not really). XD

  17. 17

    can NO ONE speak an honest word on an artist these days? if u guys dont like-a-bitch why u knockn on her door/posts ere' damn day???



  18. 18

    just heard the sample the song is sick its gonna be top evrything she's done….its really good…BTW born this way was a disapointment for evryone because it's not that simple it actually has a complicated hook and its not such a rip off madonna it only sounds similair but if you listen closly you'll see that its completely different…how can people not see that? this girl is a master of hooks some of them are obvious and evryone gets hooked others are a bit more complicated like born this way that is why people say it sucks

    Re: GayRay – You're so clever! How long did it take you to come up with that? Fuckwad.



  20. 20

    I loved it this is sick !!!

    Re: M: – And your still obsessing with her, thats fine, she is the winner at the end of the day as well as Perez because he makes money of your comments.
    Stop speaking like you are speaking for everyone, you are just speaking for the haters and that is very few if you compare it to the rest of the world and you are most certainly not speaking for Madonna because she likes GaGa and if she really thought it she was an rip-off GaGa would have been sued a long time ago because Madonna wouldn't looks past that.. BTW was amazing but she can do much better than that. Soon Judas will come and that will be a huge hit. She is an masterpiece artist.
    Stop obsessing with GaGa,



  22. 22

    Can't wait, Judas is going to be a huge hit as well as her album.



  23. 23

    Re: GayRay – well at least she DIDN'T STEAL HER STUFF LIKE MADONNA, or use some THIRDRATE PICKUP LINE LIKE BRINEY!!!! assfuck!



  24. 24

    Re: GayRay – really BornThisWayGaga is a loser yet you are commenting on his harmless comment? stupid much. please go shave your nutsack or something. looks like you need a life too LOSER.



  25. 25

    Re: MOVE OVER MADONNA :) – Madonna is a talentless hack always was and always will be. And at least Gaga doesn't steal or use old instrumentals like Madonna. But honey don't even try explaining to them. they are ignorant fools. love you. :)



  26. 26

    these remixes are off the fucking hizzay! and remixes are usually not better than the original so i can't wait to hear the original songs and the album!!! AHHHH!!!! going crazy!!!! this is going to be the best album of the last 20 years!!! GO GAGA!!!! :) LADY GAGA, MOTHER MONSTER, THE NEW QUEEN OF POP!!

    All monarchies must crumble and new ones must rise. All hail the reign of The New Queen of Pop, Lady Gaga! :)



  27. 27

    Perez, you said several weeks ago that you had already heard the entire album, now you're pretending like you haven't. Which is it? You're caught in a lie.



  28. 28

    GO QUEEN GAGA!!!!! ULTIMATE POP GODDESS!!! :) I LOVE YOU GAGA!!! :)



  29. 29

    I don't believe any of this "it's going to be epic" shit.. Can't believe that other post that said BTW was a different artistic approach…yeah i guess stealing someone shit from years ago is a different approach these days.. plus idk wtf was wrong with that music video.. that was some fucked up birthing shit.. and the first half was unnecessary.. liked the skull makeup but it made no sense and popping bubbles? and so called paying homage to MJ? and then that gap tooth Madonna looking shit..i mean WHY? All these people claiming "homage", does there really have to be one in every fucking video now -.-
    and this guy sounds like he needs a "volume".. sounds like he's getting "hard" just talking about it… damn

    Re: jennycakes – Wow, I think I remember replying to another post weeks ago of you hating on Gaga.
    Wow, for someone who claims to hate Gaga you sure do obsess about her. You even watch her videos and know in detail what happens in them?
    Stalker Much?
    Haha, dumbass, Keep making Gaga more famous and commenting on Perez's site, it's only making him more money. LOLZZZ



  41. 41

    Re: DEAL WITH IT – go "die"? geez your the one that's pressed dumb bitch.. go figure some fans can't handle another opinion and telling me to die for it ? lol so much for this promotion of "peace" and "acceptance".. glad my post bothered you xD



  42. 42

    Re: MOVE OVER MADONNA :) – The only one who's obsessed is you.. got that? I'm not on "every" fucking post of hers.. i didn't come here for awhile and i pass a lot of Gaga posts since there is one in every fucking corner of this site..
    if you can't handle someone elses opinion then don't read them? and you know what a "hater" is? someone who hates for no reason.. i got my reasons bitch.. and if i see b.s. I'll say it..
    lol and like i said your obsessed.. i mean you have to respond to every fucking one that doesn't like her ass? get the fuck over it..
