Oh man!

We've been so excited about Born This Way that we almost forgot there are sixteen other tracks on the album which we just can't WAIT to hear!

In the upcoming profile on Lady GaGa in Vogue, the singer opened up about what other songs to expect once her new single hits the airwaves tomorrow, and the more we hear, the more excited we get!

According to the article:

"After I wrote it [Born This Way], the gates just opened, and the songs kept coming. It was like an immaculate conception." She plays a few more songs and mentions a few others—with tantalizing titles like “Hair,” “Bad Kids,” and “Government Hooker.”

The second single to be released is called “Judas and is, typically, a mash-up: The melody sounds like it was written for the Ronettes, but it is set to a sledgehammering dance beat and is about falling in love with backstabbing men of the biblical variety. Another song, “Americano,” which she describes as like “a big mariachi techno-house record, where I am singing about immigration law and gay marriage and all sorts of things that have to do with disenfranchised communities in America,” has a resounding Piafesque chorus. Turns out it was intentional. “It sounds like a pop record, but when I sing it, I see Edith Piaf in a spotlight with an old microphone.” (Piaf is an apt reference—they both evince a similar brand of heroic vulnerability.) But, she says, “there are some very rock-’n’-roll moments on the album, too: There’s a Bruce Springsteen vibe, there’s a Guns N’ Roses moment. It’s the anthemic nature of the melodies and the choruses.” She feels it’s different from—and better than—anything she’s done before. “It is much more vocally up to par with what I’ve always been capable of. It’s more electronic, but I have married a very theatrical vocal to it. It’s like a giant musical-opus theater piece.”

Unbelievable!

There's no way to properly prepare for what's to come - we know that no matter what, you're going to be absolutely BLOWN AWAY by what LG has managed to create with this album!

Gurl is UNSTOPPABLE!

Get yourselves ready, Monsters, it's going to be TRULY spectacular!

The Ronettes Sue Phil Spector

Filed under: Legal Matters

Although he once managed The Ronettes, the iconic 1963 girl group is suing Phil Spector for back royalties.

Darlene Love, Ronnie Greenfield (who was once married to Spector) and the state of Estelle Bennett and Bedra Talley Ross filed a lawsuit against their former manager, Phil Spector Records and Phillies Records for $150,000 in royalties. They are also looking for $1 million in damages.

Their hits include Baby, I Love You, (The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up, Walking In the Rain and Be My Baby. Not to mention, they immortalized the wall of sound.

Wonder what Mr. Spector can do from prison.
