So you guys saw Lady Gaga on American Idol? She was fun! She helped the remaining four finalists prepare their performances for the show. “I’m not interested in judging them, I’m here purely to be a friend,” said Gaga. “I just want to give them senses of inspiration and confidence and help them bring out what’s really special about them.” And if you are a Gaga fan, then you are probably counting down the days till the release of her third studio CD, Born This Way on Monday 23 May - yes, a mere 7 days away! She described the much anticipated release as "a marriage of electronic music with major metal or rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats". Sounds sweet! She told fans, "I promise you, I'll never let you down. And not for nothing: The album's finished and it's fucking really good. So whatever this is, whatever you just did for all of us. I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade. The funny thing is that some people have reduced freedom to a brand. They think that it's trendy now to be free. They think it's trendy to be excited about your identity. When in truth, there is nothing trendy about Born This Way. This connection that we all share is something so much deeper than a wig or lipstick or an outfit, or a fucking meat dress. Born This Way is about what keeps us up at night and what makes us afraid." Mmm...we can't wait!
