Lady Gaga Hails Alexander McQueen for ‘Born This Way’ Success

Lady Gaga

In the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Lady Gaga shares her unabashed adoration for Alexander McQueen.

The chameleon entertainer praises the late British fashion designer — who sadly took his own life in last February — to the point where she bestows all success surrounding her massive worldwide hit, “Born This Way,” to him.

“I think he planned the whole thing: Right after he died, I wrote ‘Born This Way,’” the 25-year-old cover girl explains. “I think he’s up in heaven with fashion strings in his hands, marionetting away, planning this whole thing.”

Somehow, such a vision doesn’t seem so strange. The two were apparently very close. Just a week after his death, Gaga paid tribute to her dear friend with an emotionally-charged set at the 2010 Brit Awards.

Moving on… Interscope Records initially planned to issue “Born This Way” a bit later than its February 11 release date. Instead, they coincidentally bumped it “to the exact day of the one-year anniversary” of his death. Um, can you blame the chart-topping mega star for thinking anything else?

“When I heard that, I knew he planned the whole damn thing,” she says.” I didn’t even write the f***ing song. He did!”

Lady Gaga’s long-awaited third album, Born This Way, finally drops May 23.
