Pop Queen Lady Gaga has opened up about what inspired her to create her forthcoming new album, ‘ARTPOP’.

Her online presence was strong last night (August 22) while she was working on new music and she took time to reply to several fans who asked public questions about her new body of work.

One fan sent a tweet that questioned the source of her influence for ‘ARTPOP’, to which Gaga wrote an explanation that focused on the perceptions and “possibilities” of the pop genre: “It’s inspired by completely free thinking state about the possibilities of pop. tearing up my rulebook and going forward.”

When asked if she could liken her new material to any previous songs, she simply admitted that she “can’t”.

She will perform the next date of her Born This Way Ball tour later today (August 23) in Latvia at the Riga Mezaparks arena before travelling to Estonia, Finland, and then Sweden.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
