When Lady Gaga called in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest today to promote her gig at tomorrow’s iHeartRadio Music Festival , she dropped a few monster-sized bombshells on the American Idol host. “All I will say is there may be a surprise duet with someone that is also performing,” Mother Monster noted. (Saturday’s lineup at the Vegas event includes, among others, Nicki Minaj, Usher and Jennifer Lopez, whose album Love? Gaga wrote songs for.) She also said she’s been working on her Born This Way follow-up. “I’m actually already working on my next album,” said Gaga. “So I’ve been working on that. I’ve been planning the next tour. Which keeps me very excited and busy because I have lots of new ideas, and I know exactly how I want it to look. I’m also planning my next music video. I have lots of thing to do, but in truth, I feel like I’m the most alive when I’m on stage.”

For those keep track, Lady Gaga has released four singles off her current album, the most recent being “You And I.” One would assume that when she refers to her next music video, it’s for the fifth Born This Way single.

As for her big performance tomorrow night, which will close out the two-day iHeartRadio fest, The Lady told Seacrest, “Well, I actually designed the stage especially just for this one performance. So it will never be used again. And I put a lot of time and thought into it. It’s really innovative and exciting. It’s going to be very fun.”

Anyone want to put money on the duet being with Jo Calderone (who technically is on the bill)?
