PopJustice Publishes ‘Lady GaGa’ Relative Interview Newspaper

Music blog Popjustice has published a new relative interview with Lady Gaga in an exclusive limited-edition newspaper. The 10,000-words Q&A features GaGa talking about her most and least favorite songs from her music pop albums, the meaning behind them and more….

Check out some points from the interview below:

How long should pop songs be?
Urgh… I hate that! (pulls face) Well many would say that the perfect pop song should be three minutes and thirty seconds. And that the chorus should come in before the first minute. I, however, don’t believe that.

What do you believe?
I believe the chorus definitely needs to come in before the first minute, if not the first thirty seconds, or before the song even begins as in “Bad Romance”. But other than that the chorus should come in quite swiftly without any fuss. But I have also been playing as much as I can on this album without constraining myself too much by always having the same structures. I don’t want the album to be plastic or boring. I found myself getting a bit bored with my own structuring on the Monster Ball. There was and is a formula that I have been using that I’ve used on some songs on this album and not others.

What’s your worst song?
I hate “Telephone.” Is that terrible to say? It’s the song I have the most difficult time listening to..

Because it was offered to Britney first?
Well that’s not exactly what happened, but I don’t want to delve into that. I could delve into it if you turn that (motions to recorder) off… But ultimately the mix and the process of getting the production finished was very stressful for me. So when I say it’s my worst song it has nothing to do with the song, just my emotional connection to it.

Okay. So which of your actual songs don’t you like? What would you listen to and think, “that’s pretty shit”?
What would I like, skip over? Nothing on The Fame Monster. I think that’s pretty great. The Fame? I would probably skip over Money Honey.
