Although Lady Gaga is proud of being a pop star who actually writes her own material, lately she’s been giving credit to some other authors of her work.
Gaga says that her friend, late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, is using her as a conduit to get his message across. “I think he planned the whole thing. Right after he died, I wrote Born This Way,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “When I heard that, I knew he planned the whole damn thing. I didn’t even write the f**king song! He did!”
Gaga’s new single “Judas” was a present from the Big Guy himself. She told NME that “I feel like honestly that God sent me those lyrics and that melody. When you feel a message to give to the world and people are shooting arrows through it…there’s no way for something that pure to be wrong.”
Gaga has said that she often smokes pot when she’s working on songs. This might explain how that “disco stick” lyric came to be.
