Lady Gaga present: The artRave The ARTPOP Ball tour in colors
I wrote about everything I didn’t write on The Fame. While traveling the world for two years, I’ve encountered several monsters, each represented by a different song on the new record: my ‘Fear of Sex Monster,’ my ‘Fear of Alcohol Monster,’ my ‘Fear of Love Monster,’ my ‘Fear of Death Monster,’ my ‘Fear of Loneliness Monster,’ etc. I spent a lot of nights in Eastern Europe, and this album is a pop experimentation with industrial/Goth beats, 90’s dance melodies, an obsession with the lyrical genius of 80’s melancholic pop, and the runway. I wrote while watching muted fashion shows and I am compelled to say my music was scored for them.

I was writing about how my body is something that the public knows—my image— I am a vessel. But if I am treated this way, this is all I will give you.You will not have my heart or my mind, because you don’t deserve it. I give my heart and my mind to my fans. That is who deserves it because they receive it with love.
