She tells the mag she plans on revealing the new album title on New Year’s Eve, which sort of bums us out, seeing as though that means no new Gaga music for awhile!
She says the new album will be heavier than her first two, The Fame and The Fame Monster. "The message of the new music is now more bitter than it was before," she tells the mag. "Because the sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be."
"I've been working on it for months now, and I feel very strongly that it's finished right now. It came so quickly. Some artists take years; I don't. I write music every day."
Gaga’s plan to reveal the title doesn’t surprise us at all. She says, "I think I'm gonna get the album title tattooed on me and put out the photo.”
The pop princess goes on to say that she never likes coming out of character. "If I were to ever, God forbid, get hurt onstage and my fans were screaming outside of the hospital, waiting for me to come out, I'd come out as Gaga," she says, adding that she models herself on Michael Jackson.
"Michael got burned, and he lifted that glittered glove so damn high so his fans could see him, because he was in the art of show business. That's what we do. I don't even drink water onstage in front of anybody, because I want them to focus on the fantasy of the music."
We have to hand it to her—Gaga is always in character. But sometimes we wish we could see the girl behind all the crazy costumes. Surely that must be a tiring act to keep up all of the time?
