NME nudist Lady Gaga has given her Little Monsters a short preview of a new song from forthcoming album Born This Way in the latest Gagavision video. She then discusses how fearless, strong and brave her fans make her feel, and why last week’s leak of her new single “Judas” felt like “a slow death.” Watch below.
“Eek! ‘Judas’ is leaking. A slow death,” Gaga laments in Gagavision No. 43. “Just put me out of my fucking misery. Just put that shit out. There’s no need—it’s like they were like tearing limb for limb. First it was like the arm of the song and then the liver.”
Then, while laying in an empty bathtub, Mother Monster explains a bit of the writing process she endured for Born This Way.
“All of the songs on the album, to be completely candid…the creative process is a 15-minute vomiting, 15 minutes of vomiting my creative ideas in the forms of melodies, usually, or chord progressions and melodies,” the singer notes. “And some sort of theme, lyric idea, it all happens in approximately 15 minutes of this giant regurgitation of my thoughts and feelings.”
Sounds tasty, Gaga. Anything else? “And then I spend days, weeks, months, years fine-tuning,” she adds. “But the idea is that you honor your vomit.”
Honor Your Vomit—almost sounds like it could have been the name of Gaga’s LP, no? Then again, imagine how divisive that album cover would prove to be.
At any rate, we’re digging the short clip of the new song here. Sounds like old-school Elton John meets French house music.
