Lady Gaga releases lyrics to 'Born This Way'
Friday 28 January 2011
On January 27, pop-dance music artist Lady Gaga released the full lyrics to her forthcoming title track to the album
Born This Way.
Earlier in the day, she teased the opening lyrics on Perez Hilton's website - "Don't be a drag, just be a queen." Soon after, Gaga tweeted that she might drop the complete lyrics to "Born This Way" today as a thank you to her fans. "#thankgod4gaga is trending!? More like #thankgod4monsters," she wrote. "Maybe I should leak the lyrics to Born This Way today, whatdya say #leakitgaga?" She later revealed the complete song, first by teasing a few extra lines to Billboard, then by posting the entire song and credits on her Twitter page.
The new LP will drop on May 23, and the album's title track will be available on February 13. She plans to premiere the song in style at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, where she is nominated for six awards.
On January 19, Gaga also premiered a new single, Scheiße (German for "shit"), from the album at a Paris fashion show by Thierry Mugler. She also released a new video, directed by fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco, set against a remix of the new song.
She is currently in the midst of her Monster Ball tour, which the singer describes as "the first-ever pop-electro opera" and which includes performances of music from her two albums, The Fame and The Fame Monster, which have sold well over 10 million copies worldwide. The international tour began in late 2009 and is scheduled to continue through 2011. Her 2009 The Fame Monster topped charts in 11 countries, and Gaga has sold more than 15 million albums and 51 million singles worldwide.
