Lady Gaga’s stunning Paper magazine cover broke the internet today (March 16) and contained more than a little tea about Chromatica. Mother Monster also opened up about 2013’s polarizing ARTPOP. “I think it’s funny that I’m not allowed to have a sense of humor,” she said in response to her viral tweet about no longer knowing the album. “The internet is essentially a big joke, but if I tell one everyone freaks out. I don’t regret my art, and I wouldn’t suggest anyone do.”

The “Stupid Love” hitmaker then asserts that the world wasn’t quite ready for the album. “I look back at ARTPOP and look at music today, and I see a lot of things that were very… futuristic. Or they were ahead of their time, and I’m okay with saying that.” Gaga is equally proud of Joanne. “[It] was exactly what I wanted to do,” she explained. “The way I wanted to do it, the way I wanted it to sound, and so was ARTPOP — everything about it. Every album has been exactly what I wanted to make at that time.”

“It’s just there was a period where I think I forgot about where I was, and maybe that’s why it’s been so important for me with Chromatica to reestablish where I am for myself,” Gaga mused cryptically. “So that here can mean something very powerful.” Make sure you read the full interview here.
