Sunday looks to be a very Merry Christmas indeed for fans of Lady Gaga, as the 25-year-old artist has said she'll release a new "Born This Way" track.
Gaga tweeted Thursday, "been racking my brain on what to get Little Monsters for Christmas!! I finally figured it out!! On Christmas Day I will leak to you an unreleased Song off Born This Way!"
And better yet, this will be "uncensored," she promises. "It was recorded live, in one take, on the tour bus."
In the meantime, Gaga's riding a critical recognition high: In addition to being up for an album of the year Grammy for "Born This Way," her duet with Elton John is on the short list for a best original song Oscar nomination.
"Just heard my duet 'Hello, Hello' with Elton is up for nomination at the Oscars! Gnomeo & Juliet is such a beautiful film," Gaga tweeted. "I'm so happy!!"

It looks like Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is something of a Little Monster.
According to U.K. paper The Sun, Martin gushed about Gaga before his band's “X Factor” final performance at Wembley Arena Sunday night, and raved about her ability to pen a catchy chorus.
"She's very sweet,” Martin said of Gaga. “I think what undercuts it all, though, is that she's talented and she writes everything.”
The 34-year-old musician continued with his compliments, saying, "I just admire all of the hats and the dresses and the madness and everything because I know that underneath it all she can beat me at writing choruses."

In “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again,” the mogul muses, "maybe she became a star because I put her on the Miss Universe Pageant. It’s very possible, who knows what would have happened without it, because she caused a sensation.”
In case you didn’t catch that particular beauty competition, Lady Gaga performed at the 2008 Miss Universe Pageant. A latex-clad Mother Monster sang her hit “Just Dance” as contestants shook their stuff in bikinis.
Trump, 65, adds of the pop star’s current fame, “I really believe I had at least something to do with it."
“Time to Get Tough” hits shelves this week.

Lady Gaga is known for creating evocative mini-movies to provide the visuals for her singles, and "Marry the Night" is no different.
Gaga starts her opus with a voiceover and a medical ward. Stretched out on a gurney, Gaga tells her audience, "When I look back on my life, it's not that I don't want to see things exactly as they happened, it's just that I prefer to remember them in an artistic way. And truthfully, the lie of it all is much more honest, because I invented it."
She continues, "It's sort of like my past is an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again. It's not that I've been dishonest. It's just that I loathe reality."

Suitors wanting to work their way into the Mother Monster's heart should take note: She doesn't settle for less.
The 25-year-old pop star - whom you may have spotted on ABC last night, performing her special, "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" - told Access Hollywood that she looks for a variety of qualities in a potential love.
"Talent and perseverance and pushing the boundaries of love and acceptance," the "Marry the Night" songstress said. Mulling over the question of what it takes to "woo" her, she adds, "I can't really say. It ranges from a really big [bleep] to a degree at Harvard. Just about anything."

Like many a pop star before her, Lady Gaga is debuting her own holiday (mini) record.
The 25-year-old digitally released the four-track "A Very Gaga Holiday" on Wednesday, reports Billboard. Below is Gaga's swingy rendition of "White Christmas," the classic that she admits to adding an extra verse to.
"As you can tell I'm very outgoing," she says. "I've decided that this song is too short, it's such a beautiful Christmas song but it's only one verse, so I added one extra one." She had to make it her own, somehow.
