UPDATED: Lady Gaga Reveals “Born This Way” Lyrics, Sings “Happy Birthday” To Ellen
Lady Gaga decided the best way to thank her Little Monsters for turning “Thank God 4 Gaga” into trending topic on Twitter was to treat them to the opening lyrics to “Born This Way”. The title track of recently named Most-Anticipated Album Of 2011 is sure to be “Firework”, “F**kin’ Perfect” and every other “I Will Survive”-esque anthem rolled into one (Elton John claims it will completely dethrone the Gloria Gayner classic—so get ready, karaoke bars). When the provocative artist wasn’t busy leaking lyrics, she managed to find time to wish Ellen DeGeneres a very happy birthday live on air. UPDATE: Gaga has now given her Monsters the full set of lyrics! Read below. [Gaga Daily] Gaga not only sings “Happy Birthday” to a stunned and surprised Ellen, but calls the daytime host an inspiration and promises to perform “Born This Way” on her show—seriously, could you ask for a better birthday gift than that?!
