Lady Gaga: 10 years have passed since the album that changed her life and career

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanottabetter known as Lady Gagaafter a long road to convince about his overwhelming talent and thanks to the blessing of the singer Akon, he had released The Fame, his first albumin 2008.

Topics like “Just Dance” Y “poker face” impacted the entire world, to the point that seven months later he ended up publishing The Fame Monsteran EP with nine new songs as “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” (with Beyoncé, who for her part was already rocking her double album I AM…SASHA FIERCE…).

A new global queen

If she really wanted fame, the American artist had achieved it. By 2010, however, she was already cooking. a new stuffwith new producers, and in an interview with the British The Guardian announced that it was going to be “an anthem for our generation”. In September she could not hold back his tears in the MTV Video Music Awards (with a meat dress on top) when receiving the video of the year award (for, obviously, “Bad Romance”) and said:

“I promise to give you the best album of the decade, just for you. Born This Way is about what makes us sleepless and what scares us”, she expressed and even sang her chorus: “I am beautiful in my own way / Because God does not make mistakes / I’m on the right track / I was born this way”.

Lady Gaga’s second album leaked on the internet before its official release, but was quickly removed from the virtual world. May 23, 2011 was the big day and it came out in their respective editions: standard and special.

14 songs were the total result and the cover art presents the composer with a motorcycle body and her face roaring. Despite possessing a cover for oblivion, what mattered was the content.

It all starts with “Marry The Night”, of 4 minutes and 24 seconds, which has a video of 13:50, where a Gaga interned in a psychiatric clinicimmersed in a fit of tears, says:

“I am going to make it. I’m going to be a star, do you know why? Because I have nothing to lose.” That’s how the producer told him bye to hollywood and hello to your beloved New York creating a perfect dance pop song inspired by the late and endearing Whitney Houston, and recreated on her tenth anniversary Kylie Minogue.

“Born This Way” undoubtedly congenial with the Month of Pride and Diversity. Inspired by and written after the death of the English fashion designer Alexander McQueen, was the first international single from the album. with extreme Madonna influences (Lady Gaga does not deny it), had the pleasure of presenting her at the Grammy Awards. In short, what she wanted to convey is that we can afford to be born countless times, as many times as necessary, to reach our best version.

The proceeds from this song are intended for charity and its video clip of 7 minutes, 19 seconds, deserves to be seen. In addition, it served as inspiration for an episode of the second season of Glee, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 and even in the MDNA Tour (2012) of the queen of pop herself. Country musician Orville Peck brings a unique take on this classic.

“Judas” it is the song with the least commercial success, compared to the others, but with a great visual exploitation without fail. The dancer and actress played Maria Magdalena, who ends up stoned to death for having betrayed Jesus with, precisely, Judas. Its reissue is performed by New Orleans rapper, Big Freedomwho gives him the freshness he needed.

“You and I” has a guitarist Brian MayQueen. Absolutely influenced by the British band, Gaga dared to use the sample of “We Will Rock You”. This rock song, with country extracts, was dedicated to her ex-boyfriend Luc Carl: “I wouldn’t have been so successful without him. I have never loved anyone like him. That relationship has really marked me.” actor and singer Ben Platt He was in charge of making the new version more exciting.

“The Edge Of Glory” It was written after the death of the activist’s grandfather. The song has Clarence Clemons as a saxophonist (Bruce Springsteen E Street Band), who also left his magic on “Hair” (track number 6 on the album).

Clemons gave his last live performance with Lady Gaga, as passed away June 18, 2011but before he died he said: “I am surprised that they pay me for this, I I would have done it for free. she has no limits…it’s a day I’ll never forget.” The video of him is the simplest and most natural of all, he is wearing versace, with Clarence in the background playing his sax, and moving anyway with a pink New York. The British Years & Years add brightness and tenderness.

anniversary reissue

The album deserved a new edition and Born This Way The Thenth Anniversary more than complies: the six versions of songs on the album were performed by members or allies of the LGBTQ+ community.

It should be noted that this album is the first of the singer to which an anniversary is celebrated. It should also be remembered that the tour “The Born This Way Ball” (her third tour) brought Gaga for the first and so far only time to South America.

Lisa Simpson and Lady Gaga in an unforgettable chapter.

Unfortunately in February 2013, the composer had to hip surgery due to a tear and canceled the remaining 21 shows of his tour. Despite a failed ending that could have been historic, he left millions of unforgettable moments for his fans around the world.

Lady Gaga ended up having her own chapter in The Simpsons, “Lisa Goes Gaga”in which teaching is precisely the end of his music: “Being yourself is better than being like anyone else.”
