Lady Gaga overwhelmed by album reaction

2011-06-30 12:30
Los Angeles - Lady Gaga "cried for a week" when she learned how well her latest album sold.

She was unable to keep her emotions in check because she was so overwhelmed by the positive response to her LP Born This Way when it was released last month.

She said: "It was a very, very huge shock for me when I heard the album sales for Born This Way. I just cried for, like, a week straight.

"It was seven full days of rainwater tears. I think I could've filled an entire ocean of gratitude. I just worked so hard on the music and I cared so much that the fans loved it, and that's all that mattered to me was they loved it. The feedback of the music and of the videos has been so wonderful."

Artistic evolution

She also insisted she isn't worried about winning over new fans with her material and is mainly concerned about strengthening the relationship she has with her existing supporters.

She told "I sat down with the label and I talked to my team and we talked about the new album cycle and I said to them, 'I don't want for the goal of this to be that we gain new fans. If we gain new fans, that's wonderful. But the goal for me is to strengthen my artistic evolution and strengthen the bond between the fans.'

"That was the single most important thing to me. Not to sell more records, not to gain more fans, not to convert people that didn't like me before to like me now. That was not what I wanted. What I wanted to do was to look out into the crowd and know that they were stronger than ever, and the thing that has been the most exciting for me is to watch that happen, because what we have - what I have witnessed so far with the release of this album - is that the super fan section of my fans has grown." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
