Lady Gaga called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning (listen to the interview here), and discussed her recent stage-diving mini-show at Lollapalooza, her delight at the repeal of Prop 8, and the possibility of releasing two new albums. Squeal! Jump below for highlights from her early morning interview.
Lady Gaga recently thrilled the festgoers at Lollapalooza, but not in the way you think—her nearly-nude crowd-surfing during Semi Precious Weapons pretty much trumped her $150,000 stage show. So what made her take the plunge?
“I haven’t crowd surfed in a long time because no one lets me anymore,” said Gaga. “I love Semi Precious Weapons so much, they are my band… I don’t know what came over me, I just got so excited. I remember playing at that stage and what it felt like and they were doing such a great job. I was standing there with Lady Starlight, and she’s like, “Can you imagine if you just jumped into the crowd?” And I said [bleep] and I did it.”
Another recent event that excited Gaga was California’s Prop 8 being found unconstitutional. “I felt like it was a revolution, like a gunshot went off, like it set us all into rotation,” Gaga told Seacrest. “It was so exciting when it happened because it, for me, was a moment that indicated that it could happen in every state now… I was so happy and I went into the studio and kept writing.”
Although Gaga says her upcoming album is more or less “done”, she has more songs than can even fit on one album. “I can’t stop writing music,” she says. “I don’t know what I’m going to do. I might have to put out two records.”
As long as at least one of those albums is longer than The Fame Monster, that’s fine by us. Just don’t keep us waiting forever, Gaga!
