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