Chatting With… The Haus of GaGa!

| Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!Music MinuteChatting With...Lady GaGaReality TV

We are less than two weeks away until the release of the most anticipated album of the year, Born This Way, and Perez recently sat down with Lady GaGa's creative director and choreographer, Laurieann Gibson to talk about what we can expect from GaGa in the future, the album, the controversies, Madonna, Judas and so much more!

Read some select highlights from our chat… after the jump.

And watch our interview in full (above)!

Perez Hilton: Hey everybody it's Perez, I'm joined by Laurieann Gibson "Boom Kat" Wait, well there's so much I want to talk to you about. But I guess we have to start with Gaga –

Laurieann Gibson: Yes.

Perez Hilton: — because last night the new music video premiered which you directed and choreographed. Thus far, what's been the response you have gotten from people?

Laurieann Gibson: I think that everyone of course likes it, I've gotten positive reviews. But also I guess from people who don’t know us and ultimately who don’t know the dynamics of the music industry are like, "The religious content, the crosses on the clothes, the washing of the feet, the crown of thorns". So it seems to be a bit of a conversation.

Perez Hilton: A conversation?

Laurieann Gibson: Yes.

Perez Hilton: Who's idea was it to kind of go literal with the video?

Laurieann Gibson: You know she loves the metal, she loved all of that energy. And I said, "Well metal gospel, they're coming from Damascus but they're a motorcycle gang. You know they're entering the New Jerusalem." In using that it wasn’t intentionally literal.

Perez Hilton: There are some people –

Laurieann Gibson: Yes sir.

Perez Hilton: — who viewed the video and maybe thought there were moments that were a little too sexual.

Laurieann Gibson: Give me the sexual moments. Who are they watching and what is in your brain? Hello?

Perez Hilton: Well the washing of the feet was portrayed as sexual when she was in the bathtub and they're arriving.

Laurieann Gibson: Because how brave of her and how truly gifted, and free, and real she is to say, "I'm not religious, I'm not accepting none of your hypocrisy, I'm clinging to this source of inspiration for me and I'm brave enough to do it. And as I arch my back what I'm trying to say is I have a problem with falling in love with the wrong things but I'm not giving up."

(Music)

Perez Hilton: I don’t think "Judas" has been as big of a hit as it should be because of the subject matter. And that’s a shame because I think it’s a hit song.

Laurieann Gibson: I do too. Would you have felt that way if the visual came out with the record? Would that have helped you?

Perez Hilton: No, I think –

Laurieann Gibson: With the dance –

Perez Hilton: I mean I love the video.

Laurieann Gibson: Right.

Perez Hilton: I love the video but I think it just is more fuel for those people, do you know what I mean?

Laurieann Gibson: Yeah, I do.

Perez Hilton: So I think it's an amazing song. I love the album. The pieces varied so I can't wait for everybody to hear that.

Laurieann Gibson: Yeah it's really, like you said bloody Mary, Jesus.

    Lady Gaga’s Creative Director admits ripping off Madonna

    LA Times: A lot of her visual aesthetics have been compared to Madonna. As her creative director what are your thoughts on that?

    Laurieann Gibson: Listen, [Madonna] should be bitter because I did it on purpose, and you can quote me. I did it on purpose because for all those kids who believe that you can’t, I wanted to let them feel that you can. And that’s what I represent, that’s what Gags represents. That’s what this movement represents.

    "So I don't watch that much TV" - Then fucking turn in your goddamn pop culture commentator card. I love how you claim to work like 15 hour days and YET one of the very things you should be looking to as a SOURCE for your blog you're completely neglecting. Don't boast about this, Perez. Do your fucking homework.



  14. 14

    OMG..what is his obsession with GAG GAG…sick sick sick of her and her lame music and lame posts every 5 mins…her music sucks, and she had to release back to back singles one after another to justify pathetic Judas FLOP…this isn't pop; it's POOP



  15. 15

    What's wrong with M? Get a life and stop getting on the computer talking shit about people. Madonna isn't original. No one is. Not even GaGa. We all get our stuff from other people. So what if it is a rip off? Everything has been done. Like I said, No one is original. Michael Jackson isn't original. David Bowie isn't original. Lady GaGa isn't original. Katy Perry isn't original. Perez Hilton isn't original. I'm not original. No one is.



  16. 16

    Re: M:
    Dude, there's so many artists/musicians/singers way more talented than and who have much deeper meaning in their music than Madonna. You should take all that energy you use kissing Madonna's ass and obsessing over every GaGa post to discover some of these artists. Who knows??…you might even come to like some of these artists more than you do Madonna.

    Im just gonna go ahead and say it…and probably get stoned for saying so but i fucking LOVE judas lol. WAY better than born this way, and edge of glory is amazing. I am getting sick of her for sure, but i won't deny her music is top notch… she's one of the most talented people in the business, whether you agree or not - she is legit.

    Let the shit talking begin



  18. 18

    Am I mistaken? But Madonna was not mentioned in this interview. Which is the reason I watched.

  19. M: says – reply to this

    Re: TwistinMySobriety – sht the fuck up. at least madonna has the most incredible career ever. gaga keeps stealing and lie about everything. open ur eyes. theres no deep career than madonna and all her deep messages



  20. 20

    Just because you say it is the most anticipated, doesn't make it so you fucking idiot. THere are not that many gays in the world to make this ugly tranny dyke relevant.



  21. 21

    (think of like a virgin)
    it was madonna's
    she wrote it the very first time
    it was madonna's
    now im gonna call it mine

  22. M: says – reply to this

    Re: CA90069 – thats right



  23. 23

    I have to say i was always hesitant to call lady gaga a copier of Madonna. However, now after seeing the recent video for Judas i must admit. She is for sure highly influenced by Madonna's work to the point that she is copying her. Lady gaga is a talent she needs to make great music and stop copying madonna! It has now become obvious. Madonna is truly original! Lady gaga a copier of madonna!

  24. M: says – reply to this

    Re: sm87 – she doesnt produce the songs. she worst with producers like redone and judas is totally redone.she isnt talented.this are trash songs. arent even hits



  25. 25

    I like the song and the video.



  26. 26

    Her HBO special was a complete mess! All she did was talk through the whole damm thing and when she spoke about being bullied I wanted to throw up. When they showed her fans that was truly funny. A bunch of young little femm queens and all her dancers were freaking ugly to boot. Dancers are supposed to look hot and with all her money she picked them. Monsters=Ga Ga



  27. 27

    I grew up with "Godspell" and "Jesus Christ, Superstar" and that was 30 years ago so get the ideas behind the video. I don't understand how people in 2011 can't accept the message, or at least her right to say it. Prince combined religious and sexual imagery and few people denounced him. I think it's because she's a woman.



  28. 28

    Oh come on-I think GaGa said she meant nothing religious in the video and now they are saying it was and the gang was supposed to be driving into a new Jerusalem. So which is it. You just caused her and her people to look hypocritical. WTG Perez. lmao Plain and simple-she is releasing too many singles before the release and it sucks. All the songs suck.



  29. 29

    Re: CA90069 – Exactly my point. Gaga is saying one thing and that woman is saying another. Very hypocritical.



  30. 30

    Love the new show the dance scene BOOMKACK!!!! , but does anyone besides me think judas is a mash up of bad romance and paparazzi….

  31. china says – reply to this


    31

    everyone likes the stupid vid? delusional much?
    as for what`s to expect from tranny caca, you don`t need an interview to answer that: selling other people`s work as your own and a constant offense for eyes and ears.



  32. 32

    I'm over this twat - Judas is a huge disappointment and the HBO special was so annoying because she did more talking than performing. It was pathetic. Also, if we are going to make Madonna comparisons (which there are none IMHO) Madonna's concert sets and dancers are always visually appealing, the dancing is spot on and entertaining and her concerts flow from one song to the next - Gaga does dance but her and her backup dancers will never compare to Madonna. The stage and set was underwhelming. I really expected more from the HBO special. I think all the over-hype and nonstop reporting on her has literally gagged me. I can't stand her constant need for attention any more or her sage wisdom advice talking through her singing at the age of 24 or 25 is it? Please. Make it stop!



  33. 33

    Perez you are starting to look a little too thin. Maybe doing all these coke lines with Gaga isn't a good diet supplement. She is burning out and its obvious. She's 25 and she looks like shes closer to pushing 40.. slow down a bit bb and go to the spa and have a nice coke free relaxing day…y ou need it.



  34. 34

    Perez said Bionic was a flop. this going to flop harder and i will lol.



  35. 35

    Laurieann's comments made gaga look stupid and hypocritical.. she made a statement saying that I'm not religious, I'm not accepting none of your hypocrisy," but yet Gaga always talks about how shes religious and loves Jesus.. I think Laurieann's interview did more harm then good..



  36. 36

    I didnt watch the video because I'm listening to something else but I read it and either it is the way that someone typed the conversation or its how bitchy the lady is but she kept interrupting. I think this is only part of the interview. Knowing this website, there will be like 5 parts to it..especially since its Lady Gaga.



  37. 37

    Re: M:
    Oh, please. Madonna is as deep as a Petri dish. And no, I will not shut up. You do not own these message boards, bitch!



  38. 38

    Re: M: – Of course she isn't the new Madonna, it can only be one. This is GaGa and it will always be GaGa, deal with it and try to get her name right and do a spell check before publish. The reason Madonna has had such a big career as she has had it's because she was born before GaGa. If she was born today she would have had both GaGa and Britney as a big competition and I don't think she would win. Sure, she is talented but she ain't that good.
    Madonna doesn't surprises us all. GaGa surprises, if she didn't you would keep on commenting and she would be in the media as much.
    The only fake one is you. I would think you are about 30 years old because of your Madonna obsession but then I see you don't know how to write or know of a thing called respect. You need to grow up. If Madonna saw you she would be ashamed. She doesn't know who you are and if she did you would be on her good list because I and other people know that Madonna likes GaGa and I doubt that Madonna likes it when people keep on going like you do. GET A LIFE.



  39. 39

    Re: M: – YOU DO REALIZE m HAS BEEN SUED AND SHIT ALL ALONG HER CAREER FOR PLAGIARISM MY DEAR. Perhaps some research would do you some good. also before her was monroe and cher. All Madonna did was act like a slut and mock jesus. at least Gaga can sing without a computer.



  40. 40

    This bitch is full of shit.



  41. 41

    Re: M: – MADONNA IS A FUCKING OLD HAG WHO WALKED AROUND LIKE A WHORE ALL THE TIME, SHE CANT EVEN SING, SHE EVEN TELLS HER FANS TO FUCK OFF, SHE IS OLD, UGLY, TALENTLESS, AND THE ONLY REASON SHE GETS ATTENTION THESE DAYS IS BECAUSE SHE CANT STOP SWITCHING RELIGIONS!!! SHE HASNT EVEN HAD A HIT SONG IN YEARS!!!



  42. 42

    I love how nobody likes her lmao! She sucks so bad and seems like she's in such denial about how bad her work is. Lawl.



  43. 43

    Re: M: – Isn't Madonna a Lady Gaga fan? I'm pretty sure Madonna would not be a huge fan of you because she has come out and said she doesnt approve of bullies. You are a bully. Saying gaga is weak is a joke to me because at least she has courage to stand infront of thousands of people and speak her mind respectfully. you hide behind your computer and HATE ALL day. I really think it would be healthy for you to just try to be a happier person…



  44. 44

    Re: MsJules – I never realized that but yeah you're right. Laurieann is just pushing GaGa down further and further, and in my opinion GaGa is doing it fine on her own. Haha!



  45. 45

    If this fraudulent poseur is supposedly SO talented, SO original & SO artistic, why the HELL does she need a "Creative Director"?



  46. 46

    I'm sorry, I like Lady Gaga, but I can't STAND Laurieann Gibson.



  47. 47

    LMAO at Perez admitting JUDAS is a F-L-O-P. Is the world coming to an end?



  48. 48

    Very generic video. And song.



  49. 49

    Re: CannibalCouturex – Bollocks. Way to discredit real Originals.



  50. 50

    Re: Gaganheim Artists – Most aren't even concentrating on the religious aspects…. Maybe people just think it's generic, regurgitated carp ?

    Are you 12, or something ?



  52. 52

    the songs that she has put out from her new alnum Suck am i that only one who is thinks this way !



  53. 53

    It is Boomkack not Boomkat



  54. 54

    I wonder if GaGa is going through her record collection now looking for old Madonna records to see what her next album is going to sound like. Will it be more songs off "Like a Prayer" or "Erotica"
