I went to acting school for almost ten years growing up in New York. I went to Strasberg Theatre downtown, I studied method acting and I just was really terrible at auditioning, extremely awkward and couldn’t get a job. So I decided to become a singer instead.
I think that lyrically this album is more poetic. It’s really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they’re funnelling so much into me. So I wrote it for them. Born This Way is all about my little monsters and me, mother monster.
