Akon Describes Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ As “Crazy” And “Amazing”

Rejoice, little monsters! Lady Gaga’s third album, Born This Way, is at least partially completed — because Akon is already raving about it. The singer, who boasts the Muppets lover on his Kon Live label, tells MTV that he’s listened to the album, and “what I can really tell you about it is the fact that I’m excited — and I’m hard to excite.” We’d be excited, too, if we got a percentage of whatever Gaga was set to make from her highly anticipated third release. More details below:

“If I was going to compare it to her previous work, I would definitely say it’s a notch up,” says Akon. “It’s like she’s slowly taking you on to this journey down this road. If she were to just drastically do it, she probably would have lost everybody from the first album, but once the sound was created and established, now we can use that as a tool to grab all the monsters and walk them down this graveyard. It’s crazy. It’s amazing.”

A stroll through a cemetary? Curious metaphor there, Akon. Though considering he’s talking about the album from the woman who own more blood packets than a Halloween costume shop, it makes sense.

Even Gaga, who has been flying ’round the world recording various tracks for Born This Way, is drumming up the hype on her third release. “Endless melodies, hooks, + poetry sledge-hammering my skull,” she tweeted. “It won’t be much longer, its almost perfect. But I (we) don’t want almost.”

You exicted yet, monsters?
