lady gaga talks born this way on a personal level

Big day for Lady GaGa's Born This Way!

First, the album has become available for UK fans to stream in its entirety on Metro.co.uk.

Now, she's opened up about Born This Way on a very personal level. Here's what she had to say about it during a recent interview:

"Born This Way is my answer to many questions over the years: Who are you? What are you about? … The most paramount theme on the record is me struggling to understand how I can exist as myself as someone who lives halfway between fantasy and reality all the time."

GaGa on whether or not she uses her personality to market her music:

"It's kind of like saying, 'Are you honest? Do you have integrity? Are you full of sh–?' But listen, my social involvement for equality and gay rights, as well as my music, is completely genuine. But I don't think I ever want everyone to ever know fully who or what I am."

And GaGa on her goals/motivations for Born This Way:

"Part of what I'm doing is asking you to look inside yourself, to ask yourself questions. I have a close relationship with my family. I'm very close with my fans and I'm in tune with what they want. And I'm in tune with myself, too. At the end of the day, I have to look myself in the mirror and I'm proud of everything I stand for. I have no reason to do or say anything unless it comes from my soul. I work very hard. I don't party very much. You don't see me falling out of nightclubs and buying Range Rovers. Social justice and music are the two most paramount things in my life and I can't put it more plainly."

And here's a message from GaGa to her fans:

"Dear monsters, let your identity be your religion. Little monsters are not a fan base. They are a culture that exists entirely outside of pop music. They are their own religion. They are a race within the race of humanity."

Thanks for opening up and sharing, wifey! Can't wait for the full album release next week!!!

    You want to really change the site Mario take your head out of her ass.

    Lmao @ that last statement about her fans. She's trying so hard to be deep, edgy and provocative when in reality her outlook is all bullshit and mirrors. "A race within the race of humanity". lmfao. I think she just strings together thoughts that have absolutely no meaning or validity. The drugs have really fried her brain.

    I feel bad for FlopGa, not as bad as I feel for her disappointed monsters though. Any individual who really looks up to her and says that she helps out with their self esteem issues is really fucked. "They are a race within the race of humanity." She needs to lay off the Cocaine and quit brainwashing/marketing her broken, damaged sheep.

    OMG I so need a break from this talented girl. I love her older music but I feel that GaGa is way to over exposed. I love how Britney Spears says mostly private about her private thoughts and life, so refreshing.

    blah blah blah, so many words for the flop of the decade….

    lady gonads, encouraging kids to alienate themselves from society isn't really helping them. creating sub-cultures certainly does not help movements such as gays, lesbian, transgender because if the goal is equality then ultimately you would want to integrate those 'sub-class' people into society so that we all treat one another with the same respect. instead, you'd rather create an underground cult (I'm sorry, 'religion' was the word you used).

    lastly, identity isn't something you wear. sure, fashion can support or enhance identity but it must come from within. those who are genuine emanate it without having to draw attention to themselves with 'fashion'. you don't have to stand out to be noticed :]

    This woman is the most original and creative talent we have….. I love how out of the box she is…

    Perez tell the truth gagas album has leaked online every where!!!!



  12. 12

    She is nothing but a corporate programmed puppet pushing the Evil Elites Satanic agenda and religion…think for yourselves little slaves of the corporate beast.



  13. 13

    OK - why are you trying to play coy…. You know as well as everyone else that you have listened to the LEAKED CD that is all over the internet as of yesterday. The CD is posted everywhere and you "PRETEND" that you are excited for its FULL release next week. Perez you are such a phony sometimes. BTW - The CD is pretty impressive.



  14. 14

    I LOVE HOW GAGA TAKES CREDIT FOR EVERY SONG SHE DOES LIKE SHE WRITES THE LYRICS AND MELODY FOR EVERYONE WITH NO HELP. THERE IS A PRODUCER NAMED "RED-ONE", THIS MAN HAS PRODUCED AND CO-WRITTEN MOST OF HER HITS. SHE NEEDS TO GIVE CREDIT TO PEOPLE THAT HAVE GOTTEN HER TO WHERE SHE IS. INSTEAD, SHE ACTS LIKE SHE IS A MUSICAL GENIUS THAT DOES EVERYTHING ON HER OWN!



  15. 15

    I heard her on fuse last night basically saying that anyone who slams a door in her face or tells her no (or does the same to her little gay monsters) is wrong and evil. All I got out of that was if you tell her no or something she doesn't want to hear, she'll wine like a little baby that can't have her way and start screaming about social injustice. I'm tired of hearing about how gaga's way is the best way and anybody that doesn't agree with her is not on her level. She's an immature, stuck up brat in my book.



  16. 16

    Woof her album sucks ass!!!! Album of the decade i think not, album of the year not even close!!!



  17. 17

    Such a brave wifey you have. Growing up in an upper-middle class demographic on Long Island must have been so tough. I feel for her. But not for that rough upbringing, but for how hideously ugly this bitch is. It's amazing she isn't full blown gay considering it must be hard to find a man that would fuck her. NASTY!



  18. 18

    I like Gaga, I really do. I think she's good at making pop music, but this 'holy than thou' mentality is really obnoxious and pretentious. Her fan base aka "little monsters" (yes gaga, that's what it is, a fan base) are NOT "a race within the race of humanity." They're a bunch of teens that enjoy dancing and clubbing, not some new breed of humans.



  19. 19

    I also live half-way between fantasy and real life. Makes the mundane much more interesting. Also I see most of you didn't bring your library card.



  20. 20

    Yes the CD leaked, yes the CD is absolutely flawless. Haters Gon' Hate.



  21. 21

    Has this pig ever heard of proper top or at the very least a bra?



  22. 22

    LOL!! Social justice!!! She's sooooo full of shit I can smell her from here!! lmao



  23. 23

    I just listened to the album with an open mind:
    Good songs: Schibe, Government Hooker, Heavy Metal Lover - I can dance to these songs in a club for sure.
    Bad songs: Bloody Mary, Americano, BTW, Marry the Night, Hair, Edge of Glory
    Meh: Bad kids, Highway Unicorn, Judas, Electric Chapel, You and I seems a little out of place for me.

    Overall, it's okay. Not mind blowing or EPIC. At times her voice is over-produced (robotic) and the songs have a million different things going on. The lyrics are pretty simple and a bit repetitive in some songs. I think she needs to relax and not try to FORCE out songs with meanings or trying to prove a point.



  24. 24

    Everything…every time..every post about GAG GAG Gargoyle..every move she makes. Yet, he refuses to post the beautiful pictures of Britney's Harper's Bazaar magazine photo cover and editorial shots…go figure…I am sure he's on GAG's payroll!



  25. 25

    Re: mvvvvvvv – Yep..and sad thing is, she has a phenomenal cover and editorial in Harper's Bazaar…beautiful pics and commentary. Perez shows nothing about it..there are like 7 dynamic photos and interview with her.



  26. 26

    Re: Mrbrightside976 – Poor Flopga!!! The album sounds like GaGa is on the same laxitive diet she's been on for 2 years and she JUST TOOK THE BIGGEST DUMP OF HER 27 YEAR LIFE!! EPIC FAIL!

    PITTY HER FIRST FIVE SINGLES HAVE FLOPPED! LMAO

    Re: eilliM – couldnt have said it better myself. wow someone actually making intellegent comments on this site. someone else also said that she has no immagination ur right too she's just a fake. millions have been spent on this girl by he record company to creat "lady gaga". she is a product nothing else. their goin milk her, overwork her, over advertising and market her untill she is not makin them anymore money, then they will move on to the next "product". thats goin be a sad day for gaga cause she's not creative enough to do it on her own like all the other artists out there



  29. 29

    I just threw up in my mouth after lookin' at that picture! Please go back to wearing veils! ugly played out fake whack bitch!

    P.S. Halloween is in October!



  30. 30

    Seriously?? She really thinks that she is God's gift to the world. Just reading that last statement made me want to puke right in her hideous face. She is a disease. And her music is just terrible.



  31. 31

    I really wish her album could have been cohesive, the 5 good songs she has on there should have been her blueprint to make the rest of the album great but she rather "experiment" all over the place making it a bit messy. I'm really TRYING to like her shit, i really am! because i don't believe in only liking one artist but sheesh…



  32. 32

    she is an average person and thanks to her upbring and schoolin she became and average artist. then her record company spent millions to market her and she became this superstar last year. the problem is she let it go to her head and actually thought the fame was bc of her talent not bc of the millions spend to sell her. ppl generally buy whats advertised. anyways now she's delousional and calling her self the greatest artist of all time when in reality she is nothing. a created product that her record company will use untill she's not makin them anymore money and they will move on to the next artist they can over expose to make millions….the general public r not stupid and they see this, but her Mmonster are just too dumb or just too young to see it too.



  33. 33

    Wow what a philosopher!!!!….She's a piece of shit…



  34. 34

    Re: bundroallday – couldn't have said it better



  35. 35

    Intelligent readers ALL KNOW that the Flop Monsters are not a sub-species of the human race. They are more akin to the missing link. It's true!



  36. 36

    lady gaga looks like she stinks worse than kim kardashian's ass.



  37. 37

    "Little monsters are not a fan base. They are a culture that exists entirely outside of pop music. They are their own religion. They are a race within the race of humanity."

    No, they aren't. They are the most mainstream types. Oh, that's what she means ?

    I also heard her album and it's nothing new. Album Of The Decade ? Um, I don't think so.



  38. 38

    Re: hoochpit – As much as I think her music is bland and her 'artistic vision' a dull hoax, comments on her looks or how 'ugly' she is, are just straightout retarded. Comment on her work or her (supposed) message but don't be totally superficial.



  39. 39

    This is the first time she has sounded somewhat "normal" in a while. I hope she keeps it up. Being crazy has to be bad for business, at some point.



  40. 40

    THIS bitch. Can't she just shut the hell up?



  41. 41

    She sounds so pretenious. Sorry the rest of us aren't so above it all like you Stephanie.



  42. 42

    Re: eilliM – Exactly. Very well said. I think calling her "monsters" a separate race and a religion, obliterates any credibilty she may have…it just comes across and ridiculous, not to mention creepy. Plus what she is telling them to do is to be so self-absorbed in their different-ness and own identities…that this becomes their world. There is so much more to life beyond simply accepting yourself. We need to learn to look outside of ourselves, not be trapped in our own heads. Accepting who you are is only the first step. I do agree with accepting others who who they are and where they are on their path in life. But I think Gaga is leading her "sheep" astray.

    I also totally agree…that she is encouraging her fans to look up to her for strength to be who they are…or rather that is how I've noticed a lot of fans that write on here seem to take it. Rather than finding strength in their own ability to be themselves, they need her to tell them who they are. Another person should not have to validate you.



  43. 43

    Re: April 20th – You sound like you're talking about yourself - Just for the record she is smarter than you will ever be - thats got to burn since your probably old enough to be her Mom



  44. 44

    That last statement makes want to snipe her…..js..-_-



  45. 45

    Gag me with a spoon! Little Monsters are a culture? LMAo.. like i've said.. shes a modern day hitler… she wants to raise up the monsters as a nazi like party (not with the killings dont read so literally into things) and try to convert people into following her beliefs and acting and following things that she believes are important. This broad is high off something else if she thinks ANYONE in the world respect them as a race within a race. and besides if shes supposed to preach tolerance and that we are all one.. Why does she segregate them and justify the as their own race? She clearly needs some guidance.



  46. 46

    Love her, she speaks the truth in my ears. She is a strong woman.



  47. 47

    If one more annoying person says, "Haters gonna hate" one more damn time, I am going to fly wherever you are to smack the shit out of you! That phrase is just about as used up as "Amazeballs" and Perez's "Wifey" b.s.



  48. 48

    Re: danieltroppy – Sorry, but if you truly think Lady GaGa is "the most original and creative talent we have", then you seriously need to get out more.

  49. @v@ says – reply to this

    Overexposure brings out the haters. Happens every time. Funnily enough, it's not even personal…it's people on this site of Gaga in particular who want her to go away for a while.
    I think she tries very hard to be a good communicator, and kudos for the causes.



  50. 50

    It cracks me up how she thinks she is so wise and the things she says is typical for someone like her. I like reading what she says because it makes me laugh really hard, great comedy! The ones I feel sorry for are the ones who thinks her music is good and spend money on it. I would give this girl a chance if her music was about music, its all about the dance and stupid costumes but then again, thats what todays pop music is all about - guess thats why I hate pop music, no real talent!

    Re: eilliM – GaGa is an inspiration to millons of people. She is an absolutly wonderful person and has acomplished so much already. She helps everyone to feel like they have a place and nomatter your looks, age, race, sexual orientation or beliefs your all little monsters and are there for eachother. GaGa unites hundreds of people who have nothing in common except for the fact that their all all misfits in some way. They are not seperating themselves from society but coming together and being openly excepted by others. There is so much ignorance and hate about sexual orientation that its no wonder why people feel the need to isolate themselves from "Normal" Society. NOBODY is normal and nobody has the right to judge others. She may be over the top with her appearance and it may be a preformance but it attracts people to her, and her message is whats really important.
