Four years ago today Lady Gaga released the title track and first single off of Born This Way. “Born This Way” debuted at number one on Billboard and stayed there for an impressive six weeks!
“I can’t believe it. 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. 1s, and the radio numbers… I couldn’t be more blessed to have the fans I have. I knew when I wrote the song it was special, but I also knew that perhaps my fans or my label were hoping for me to deliver ‘Bad Romance the Third’ or ‘Poker Face the Third’. I wanted to do exactly the opposite.” —Gaga talking to Billboard about the commercial reception of “Born This Way”
I know Gaga’s Little Monsters are still proud of their Mother Monster and her message of self love and self acceptance. Congratulations, Lady Gaga, on a timeless song!
