While at a concert stop in Poland, an overwhelmed, tearful Lady Gaga told the crowd, “Not for nothing, the album’s finished and it’s f***ing really good… I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade, just for you.” And it’s only coming out in 2011! Apparently no greater album has been released this year nor will be released in the following eight years. We shall see — Elton John’s already calling the title track “the new gay anthem of our times,” so it goes without saying that this LP is already hyped to the extreme. Footage of Gaga’s lofty claim below.
She continues discussing the album, telling her audience, “This album is so much deeper than a wig or lipstick or an outfit. Or a f***ing meat dress. Born This Way is about what keeps us up at night and what makes us afraid.”
