"ARTPOP is a journey inside my head throughout my various inspirations. It’s a list of all the things that excite me, a notebook in which I talk about everything I’ve been into lately, everything that influences me, where I write my craziest ideas. For ARTPOP, in a symbolic way, I’ve put myself in front of a mirror, I’ve taken off my clothes, then the makeup, then the wigs, I’ve dressed myself with a black jumpsuit and I’ve told myself: “Now, you have to prove you can be brilliant without all that”. This album required a lot of efforts, it was about going very deep inside my soul."
artRAVE: San Jose, my first Lady Gaga concert. What I was struck by the most was the positivity of all the Little Monsters in attendance. Everyone was excited to be there and gladly took photos of you or with you. I’ll definitely be going again.
not to overstate the obvious, but having Gaga end ARTRAVE with “GYPSY” was EVERYTHING. BLESS BLESS BLESS.
