“ARTPOP”: Lady GaGa Talks New Album With ‘Monsters’

Published: Saturday 1st Sep 2012 by David

Very few artists share the bond Lady GaGa does with her militant fan base the ‘Monsters’.

Crediting them for inspiring much of her material, this week saw the budding icon go above and beyond the call of duty when she invited members of the base backstage after a recent showing of her ‘Born This Way Ball‘.

Giving them, exclusive details on the premise of her new project ‘ARTPOP‘.

Details below…

The following account was given by one of the lucky ‘Monsters’:

What happened was we got escorted by Gaga’s team to her room and there she was laying in her bed like the queen she is. 

She asked us all to take a seat with her in bed and we were like “should we take off our shoes?” and she went “nah, they are gonna clean it anyway!” as we sat with her in bed she asked us if we had any questions for her. We saw Fozzie and everyone went “awww” then he ran away and Gaga told us that he loves attention.

During the BTWB we experienced technical difficulties and after Judas the power went off for like 10 minutes – Gaga wouldn’t let her fans down and not do anything at all so she made Terry Richardson dance for us, sang us an acapella from Fasion Of His Love and had a Q&A with the audience. I’ve never seen someone handle a situation like that so amazingly. She told us backstage that she was very sorry and we were like “omg don’t be this just made the show so much more personal and memorable!”

We asked Gaga what her favorite song was and her answer was “Springsteen – Thunder Road”

I asked her why she hadn’t uploaded an icon on Instagram and she said “I find Instagram complicated but I love all the different filters, they are beautiful” 

Gaga was asked how fast she thinks her new single will hit #1 and she said “well…I think all lead singles do pretty well”

She basically said that ARTPOP will be an album about Love and having fun. She said “When you listen to a record of the album you will understand it immediately – there won’t be any strong messages like BTW” She implied that the album is about a person who makes her very happy *Taylor Kinney*.

While she said that we all were like “We probably know who u mean” and she was like “oh really?!” Then she told us that he was going to arrive in Stockholm and she was very excited because she hadn’t seen him in a long while. 

She said Taylor made her very happy and during the show she said she had toned down her drinking because she isn’t depressed like before and now she only has one glass of wine every now and then.

We told her how unfair the MP rules are & Gaga wanted everyone to know that she is not the one who made up the 8 am rule. It was Livenation.

Gaga also brought up LM.com she said she’s making special Trollga, DerpGa FameGa emoticons and she’s bringing GIF support to.

The highlight of this whole meeting was probably when Gaga called her mom bc she wanted us to sing her happy birthday. She was so cute about it and said “call her grandma monster” while she laughed. Also she said her mother is doing a great job with the BTW Foundation and she is proud of her.

We saw DJWS, Tara, Troy Carter and most of her dancers backstage. It was an amazing experience and something that I will never forget.

I have probably forgotten to mention something but i’ll tweeted it if that’s the case. You don’t have to believe anything I tell you, I’m just sharing this because I never want to forget it myself.

Clearly more ‘open’ than ‘Born This Way’ GaGa, we can’t wait to see what the ‘ARTPOP’ era serves on all fronts- especially on a thematic tip.

Yeah, though we’re a little confused by the LP “not having any strong messages like ‘Born This Way”, we’re hoping for a project which serves the whimsicality of “The Fameand the inspirational nature of “Born”.

An era, which serves up unforgettable pieces like this:

      1. This was Sweden
      2. She just doesn’t pick, the most dedicated fans are selected….. and of course it has to be in compliance with the 8 am rule and also dress code!

    Sounds promising. I liked the message of Born To Slay, so I guess me and the 8 million people that bought it just dont hold a candle to the beysic b****** that thought all the filler songs on The Fame was a cute look

        A Katy Perry stan trying to come for ANYBODY?

        LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

        Born to Slay sold 6.4 million copies WW, over 8 million shipped.

        Teenage Dream, after a re-release and 8 singles has barely sold 5 million WW. No album in history with that many releases has flopped so badly

      just like most R&B artists have primarily black fans. You coward ass b****. If you want to talk s*** then come right ut with it: Most of Lady Gaga’s fans are white, so what? Isn’t it you ugly black stans that say you won’t listen to dance/pop…so why would you be a fan of Gaga? GTFO making ALL us black shady b****** look racist

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 1, 2012

        Rihanna has white and black fans, Beyonce, Chris Brown and Drake have white and black fans. Lady Gaga has no black fans because black people are usually not her for b*******!

      • JER September 1, 2012
        +0

        b**** please. Rihanna is not R&B, Rihanna is POP with urban leanings. BeYAWNce and Drake have 2 white girl fans a piece and Chris Brown has no fans so don’t even go there.

    Gaga does have some nonwhite fans in real life, but the point I was trying to make was that it looks like the fans who were chosen to meet & greet with her seem to be all white. I just think she could have tried to find a little more diversity of all the millions of fans she has. That’s all.

      The photo was taken in Sweden which is a predominantly white country, its not as multicultural as the US and the UK ;o)

    Well obviously ARTPOP has to be non-dark…. she has to constantly re-invent her image in order to stay on top! Gaga can not bring dark albums like TFM and BTW in a row…. it has to be evenly distributed or she might lose it…. maybe the album after ARTPOP will have a different theme! If you hate lady gaga or like her you must admit she knows exactly how to re-invent her image!

    • LadyFlopga September 3, 2012

      Re-invent her image? The b**** does the same old recycled s*** – crazy costumes and electronic music!
