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."

      Before anybody thumbs down that comment by JacobR, just look at the lyrics of Judas. This woman is definitely anti-Christian!!! And every time she's on the radio, I switch off - and let the stations know. Gotta start somewhere...

      Yes!! She is anti-christian, so burn her at the stake! F**king idiots.

    oh come on people, she's eccentric, doesn't mean she's Satan's mistress....BTW, who are you to judge. I had this argument earlier and honestly I don't get it, if you are such a devoted christian then surely this woman and her music wont affect you, however if this is not the case for you then you should rather question yourself and your commitment to God. Pathetic how the biggest Christians are always the ones who are the first to judge.

      No judgement Hannelie, just a thought! Was it not Paul from Tarsus who said " thinking themselves wise they became as fools."

      Let us rather say that the biggest supposed to be Christians are always the first to render judgement. I don't like the song about Judas particularly either words or lyrics not because I'm a Christian but just cause it really isn't great to listen to. She is entitled to express her opinion just as we all are and doing so is nothing to do with Christianity. Why shouldn't Christians be allowed if they wish to sin to express their judgement based on their interpretation of what they think is good or bad?

    For those professing to be Christians and think they are Holier than thou --- "You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye" ... this woman does so much for charity. She is eccentric, but she is a brilliant talent. Get over yourselves ... who are you to judge? God is the only one that will judge, not you!

      norman - 2011-06-30 19:39

      Just a thought! Even the devil quoted the bible ; to Jesus Himself!

      Turbo - 2011-07-01 16:03

      And your point is? You obviously missed mine.

    She is getting far to much publicity ... everything she says can be taken up either way - even her hair says it all - black or white, judas could have dual meanings - about a broken love-affair and betrayel or offensive to Christians - anything she sings could have double meaning and no-one knows for sure what the intentions are ... and this is where the problem comes in. Who in their right minds would wear meat as clothing anyway? It's sick beyond words ...

      Snowfuddyduddy....what a loser.....shame, she wore a dress made out of meat - hectic hey ?...couldnt ure little brain handle it ?
