It sounds like it reads, but not like you think until you hear it," he added. I want to write my this-is-who-the-fuck-I-am anthem, but I don't want it to be hidden in poetic wizardry and metaphors. I want it to be an attack, an assault on the issue because I think, especially in today's music, everything gets kind of washy sometimes and the message gets hidden in the lyrical play.
Harkening back to the early '90s, when Madonna , En Vogue , Whitney Houston and TLC were making very empowering music for women and the gay community and all kind of disenfranchised communities, the lyrics and the melodies were very poignant and very gospel and very spiritual and I said, 'That's the kind of record I need to make.
That's the record that's going to shake up the industry. It's not about the production. It's about the song. Anyone could sing 'Born This Way'. It could've been anyone. Gaga is shown topless in the black-and-white cover art and displays the tattoos on her back. Her hair is air-blown and she wears heavy make-up while sharp edges protrude from her face and shoulders.
She also added that the artwork was "totally and completely fierce".

EST on February 11, , and was released for digital download from online retailers at 9 a. EST the same day. It's fast and hard-hitting.
Problems playing this file? The lyrics during the verses talk about empowerment, while the chorus talks about making no apologies and accepting one as themselves.

She loved it and that's how we went about it," he added. Michael Cragg from The Guardian called the song an "almost disco anthem", and said the chorus "crashes in with the weight of a discarded meat dress ".
He also felt that the "campness" of the music made the lyrics sound less serious than it is. He added that seeing the hype surrounding the project, he expected Gaga to release a song "as epic and instantly classic as The Beatles ' ' A Day in the Life ' or Queen 's ' Bohemian Rhapsody '. Imagine what she'd come up with if she'd spent more than ten minutes writing .
Many critics noted similarities between "Born This Way" and Madonna's song, " Express Yourself ", referring to "similar chords, same uplifting, girl-power theme Music , criticized "Born This Way", stating that the song was "overworked, overwrought, noisy, cheesy, and very, very derivative.

If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. It's the same one that has been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first fucking artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist, it means I'm fucking smart.
I said, 'that sounds very familiar' I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was No such problems exist with the title track.

I'm humbled, honored and overwhelmed at the reception to 'Born This Way'. This has been so life-changing for me. Between Billboard and the international No. I couldn't be more blessed to have the fans I have.

Media reports suggested that the singer might play the character of Jo Calderone, the male model she had portrayed in the September issue of Japanese Vogue Hommes.
Hopefully makes people aware that it's OK to be yourself. When she played it for me, it took me a while to find out the visual interpretation that I could give back to her. And so I woke up one night and I got it, and I said, 'I got it: We have to birth a new race. I want a visual. It was about pushing the bar of what a music video should be and can be. It is a viral message. I think that there's something in there for everyone, and that's what's so amazing about the video and so specific about the message.
Before shooting started, Gibson and Gaga decided there was only one place to work on the avant-garde, modern dance routine for the video, Alvin Alley , where Gibson had studied dance. It's, like, more technical than anything she's ever done," she recalled.
Shooting also took place in Brooklyn for two days. Since Gaga did not want set pictures to be taken before the video was ready, her team had to hide the location and were successful, except at the last day when paparazzi started sneaking around. She said that the sequences displayed the fact that she would not allow society or critics to dictate her sense of beauty.
