Lady Gaga, Born This Way

£60.00

With the 2010s still in its infancy, Lady Gaga’s second full-length album was one of the most anticipated releases of the decade, topping the charts in 10 countries. The artwork’s perplexing fusion of Gaga and motorcycle hinted that Born This Way would update The Fame’s 70s glam pop with some 80s rock stylings – and, indeed, the album featured guest spots from Queen guitarist Brian May and Bruce Springsteen’s saxophonist, the late Clarence Clemons. The cover was also a clear statement that there would be no room for subtlety here. For Born This Way, Gaga, a self-proclaimed ‘vehicle for ideas’, pumped out a collection of songs aimed squarely at creating new anthems for the Little Monsters that made up her fanbase – not least the title track, written partly in response to the controversial passing of Proposition 8, which sought to ban same-sex marriage in the state of California.
