Lady Gaga is quite different both in work or life, which is quite like her album of Born This Way in style.
Gaga’s second studio album and third major release Born This Way was released on May 23, 2011. She announced the title of the album during her acceptance speech for Video of the Year at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
Likening Born This Way to “bad kids going to church” that is “having fun on a high level”, Gaga characterized her new music as “something so much deeper than a wig or lipstick or a fucking meat dress” and upon hearing it, Akon remarked that she will take music to the “next level.”
Two other singles, “Judas” and “The Edge of Glory”, the former being criticized for its references to Biblical characters Judas, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, were released before the album, both placing in the top ten of the major musical markets.
Upon release, Born This Way sold 1.108 million copies in its first week in the United States, debuting atop the Billboard 200, and topping the charts in more than 20 other countries.
Lending her vocals elsewhere, Gaga paired with Elton John to record an original duet for the animated feature film Gnomeo & Juliet. The song, titled “Hello, Hello”, was released on February 11, 2011, without Gaga’s vocals. The duet version was only featured in the film.
Next month she went to Sydney to promote Born This Way with a one-of-a-kind concert at the Sydney Town Hall on July 13, 2011. She continued her musical endeavors, releasing “Yoü and I” as the fourth single from Born This Way, as well as recording songs with veteran artists like Cher and Tony Bennett.
For the 2012 edition of the Guinness World Records, Gaga was listed for Most Followers on Twitter, with over 13 million followers, and her 2008 single “Poker Face” was listed for Most Weeks on US Digital Hot Songs, with 83 weeks.
In October 2011, it was confirmed that a biopic about Lady Gaga is currently being developed. Lady Gaga performed at the celebration of former US president Bill Clinton’s 65th Birthday along side Bono, Stevie Wonder and Usher, among others.
There should be the saying, “unusual person lead to extraordinary achievements.” She is born this way.
