“The album is my absolute greatest work I’ve ever done and I’m so excited about it. The message, the melodies, the direction, the meaning, what it will mean to my fans and what it will mean in my own life - it’s utter liberation.”
Born This Way [the track] was my decision to put my money exactly where my mouth is. The fans all over the world as well as the gay community have been tremendously supportive over the years and I have in turn been supportive. Let’s call a spade a spade. It’s not like The Fame and The Fame Monster address those communities, not directly. This was my chance to create something that is not only supportive of my political and social beliefs—not just for the gay community, but for everyone. It was also my chance to artistically say, ‘I’m not being safe with this record.’ I’m not trying to gain new fans or get the music played on every radio station. I love the fans I already have, and this is for them.
