Lady Gaga reveals details for 'Born This Way'

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” will apparently not only be the greatest album of the decade, as she’s previously promised, but it’ll also be more poetic.

The singer revealed details about her anticipated record to the BBC while in London for her U.K. Monsterball tour, explaining that she plans to drop a new single around February 2011, with the album arriving soon after.

Fans can expect a sound that’s "a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats,” Gaga said, noting that at this point she’s just fine-tuning the tracks.

Lyrically ,”this album is more poetic,” she said, adding that it’s her little monsters who helped write it.

"It's really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they're funneling so much into me,” she said. “So I wrote it for them. ‘Born This Way’ is all about my little monsters and me, mother monster.”

    Lady Gaga is one of those rare artists who garners a fan base of people even in their 50s and above. People clinging to the bland diets of life also, in their time, hated Elvis, The Beatles, and Madonna. An artist is truly great when he or she inflames people so. It's a purging thing. I suspect Gaga haters to be in 2 camps: Males who have been shortchanged, and the religious right. To the religious haters who cry out (and it is getting exhausting) about Gaga's support of being born gay, and who deplore that notion of birth, I declare that Gaga is Satan's queen in the hopes of making these people feel better. To the shortchanged male haters I remind that it isnt the size it's how you use it. I want people to feel better. Life is better for all of us this way.

    She is nothing short of incredible. It's unfortunate a sad minority of people don't see this. I love when haters comment though, whether it be an article or a video or anything else. Comments add to the viewcount, to the number of comments and ultimately make her more electronically popular. So when you think you're voicing your opinion and actually making some sort of a difference, well you're giving Gaga more power.

    Gaga-haters are starting to get real old. The fact that people cannot deal with the fact that she is the greatest up and coming pop queen is getting old too. Everyone who dislikes this masterpiece of a singer should just leave. Your continous feed of BS needs to quit. She is a singer, an artist, and a multi award winner. What else does she need to do to please you? Just because you may not like pop music or the way she looks doesn't mean that you need to act this way. So... Take your hatefulness someplace else! Thanks :]

    You guys are stupid for hating on Lady Gaga...she's doing her thing and the ones that LOVE her LOVE her, b/c we like the music and her creativity. If you don't like her then don't listen to her music or watch her videos, and if you hate her so much why are you reading this story on her?? It must interest you in someway, somehow, and I mean really no one cares what you think of her! We like her and that's all that really matters, and I'm sure our hearts aren't broken b/c of your ignorant comments towards her...and I'm sure her hearts still beating too. Hating will solve nothing, b/c she'll keep selling records and she'll keep singing...get over it....

    @ masa. Yea, that's an interesting brand of pseudo-psychology you've got there. Here's the truth. CNN is the only site I have access to at work and since they only update like 3 stories a day, I have to find a way to amuse myself. Making fun of Gaga works since CNN usually has a Gaga story as one of it's 3 new stories per day. So sue me.

    @Superhiro: It's like you're baiting people to criticize you in a knee-jerk fashion with your NONE sensical posts, lul. Oh and your use of hyperbole? Priceless. 🙂 It's just a pop artist, the fact that people feel the need to criticize someone who's job is *gasp* an entertainer, OH THE HORROR. SHE'S DOING HER JOB BY ENTERTAINING THE MASSES. Who cares, lol.

    So many jealous haters out there. Lady Gaga is a huge success because she has talent and her fans love her. Ask yourself why that bother you so much. The answer is that you probably hate anyone or anything that's different or special.

    Man she's hideous... And also, no your "little monsters" didn't help you write that new album. Don't try to pass the blame to anybody else for the crummy techno dance garbage you're about to release.

    Even if her detractors’ dreams came true and Lady Gaga was publicly burned at the stake in Central Park, they still wouldn’t be happy. “Oh, look at her!” they’d say, rolling their eyes. “She’s so tired! Joan of Arc did that in 1431. She had much better hips. And she did it in French!
