Lady Gaga really stole the show at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with a whopping eight wins out of the 13 that she was nominated for.
On stage, she revealed her upcoming album would be titled Born This Way. She even got a new tattoo to commemorate the occasion. Now, she’s giving us an inside look into the new album.
In a new interview, she said, “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. I knew I had an ability to change the world when I started to receive letters from fans: ‘You saved my life…’ ‘I’m gay and my parents threw me out…’ My fans have related to me as a human being and as a non-human being – as a super-human person that I truly am.”
And don’t think that she’s the least bit arrogant about her success, either. She added, “Everyone tells me I’m arrogant, but my music’s the only thing I’ve got, so you’ll have to let me be confident about one thing. I suppose that’s what you can expect from the album: a lot of hit records that will piss people off.”
