Seacrest interviews Gaga during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her which song she is most excited to play during her tour artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball.
I’m excited to play basically the entire album, but I really love Venus from ARTPOP. It’s the one I produced myself and during the show we turn the entire stage in to the planet Venus.
Lady Gaga speaks openly in the home she grew up in as Winfrey questions her about personal life, career and charity.
The latest thing I do is I don’t read a damn thing. No press, no television. If my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about?’ I don’t want to know nothing about anything that is going on… I shut it all off.
Gaga gives an interview to Harper’s Bazaar Magazine about the success of her single Born This Way.
It broke all the records. Gaga cheers, bopping up and down, adding that what she found most remarkable was that the song attracted new fans. I was happy with the fans I’ve already got. But it opened this new fan base of people who love the simplicity and joyfulness of it.
Carter is interviewed in Ad Age magazine about Gaga’s marketing partnerships. At this time Gaga has 2.8 million Twitter followers, more than 5.2 million Facebook fans. Digital-single sales are over 20 million, album sales are eight million. Carter says their partnership is “95-5”:
The only thing I do is manage the vision. Ninety-five percent of the time I won’t comment on creative, and 95% of the time she lets me run the business. The other 5% is where we debate about things like, ‘Do you really want to bleed to death on stage at the [MTV] VMAs?’ She wins even when we do have those debates 5% of the time.
Carter says he doesn’t want Gaga to ever look like she’s endorsing a brand — hence why she’s created products for Universal’s Beats By Dre headphones line, Viva Glam and now Polaroid as its new creative director.
You won’t see her face plastered on any packaging or anything. We’re comparing it to when Tom Ford went to Gucci or Steve Jobs went into Apple and brought a different thought process and taste level in. We’re looking for her to do the same exact thing at Polaroid. It’s not about her putting her name on something — it’s reinvigorating a brand.
DeGeneres interviews Gaga during The Ellen DeGeneres Show and asks her questions about the premiere of her latest song, Judas, her success, and the reason why she never wears pajamas.
It’s very funny. My best friends often crash at hotels where I’m at. They will come visit me on the road and they always call me a Beauty Queen disaster. I wake up and my wig’s falling off my head. My mole is on the other side of face. My fake mole, it’s not fake it’s surreal.
