Lady Gaga: 'Born This Way' is Billboard's 1000th #1

Lady Gaga covers Billboard magazine’s issue for the week of February 26th.

The 24-year-old pop sensation’s new single “Born This Way” earned the recognition as the 1000th song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100!

Here is what Gaga had to share with the mag:

On the instant success of “Born This Way”: “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.”

On her Grammys performance: “The Grammy performance was about many things but ultimately the song “Born This Way” . . . is visually and thematically and lyrically about birthing a new race, birthing a race within the race of already existing cultures of humanity–that bears no prejudice and no judgment.”

On her red carpet entrance in an egg: “I was in Amsterdam on my tour bus. I was thinking about birth–about embryos. Even my hair color was a washed-out rose color . . . It was meant to be a hair expression, an afterbirth.”

    so so tired of her she thinks she’s better than any other artist

  • cheesey rip

    ” Express Yourself ” by Madonna = “Born This Way”

  • Jake

    I don’t care how many records Born this way breaks. It’s never going to change the fact that it’s an awful song. It just proves that she’s good at brainwashing people to eat crap and enjoy it.

  • Be Happy

    i don’t like her anymore,i’ts like,more drama and props than talent, so boring years and years,ewwww i hope people will know the real talent,they just wasting their money beacuse of this monster… :P

  • Jasmine

    In another magazine wasn’t she cocky as sh*t saying she’s the best performer, blah blah blah? And now she’s humbled? You can’t be both. I used to like her and I still listen to her music, but she’s just trying way too hard to be the next Madonna, the next envelope pusher. There’s one every decade or so–she’s not original, especially when she tries SO hard to be.


    Looks like the outfit Rihanna wore in S&M video..

  • Laura

    Yeah, Gaga did say in Vogue about herself that she was one of the best singers and songwriters in the industry. I read today that she say she’s destined to be on the big screen. She’s extremely cocky. Her fans are equally annoying they think she created everything, no matter how you show them how many people she has ripped off.

  • k

    she definitely didn’t do bad romance the third or poker face the third. it was more like express yourself jr. i would have rather had bad romance the third from her.

  • mailey

    gaga is so ridiculously overrated.

  • dann

    let’s be honest with ourselves. at first all this mascarade was ok, fun and promising.

    but now it looks like a fool’s joke. sometimes she manages to make some cool pop music but the image she projects ruins everything. it’s not a revolution and you’re not the leader of it.

  • So SOrry

    Congrats Gaga!
