Lady Gaga, you’re such a cruel mistress. First, you give us a glimmer of light in our otherwise bleak lives. Then, you snatch your love back from us. And now you’re reissuing your gazillion-times platinum debut album. Please, we can only take so much toying with.
In an interview Rolling Stone, Gaga confirmed that she’ll be re-releasing her album The Fame under The Fame Monster title and will be putting out a boatload of new material, something which Gaga said many artists don’t do with reissued albums.
“I think re-releases are unfair,” said Gaga. “It’s artists sneaking singles onto an already finished piece of work in an effort to keep the album afloat. Originally [my label] only wanted me to put out three songs and now it’s much more than that. It’s a new album’s worth of material.”
Fans are also able to submit Gaga-related drawings, outfits, pictures, etc. via her official website to be included in the two-CD deluxe set. Not to mention that she’ll debut the new single, “Bad Romance”, on the October 3rd episode of Saturday Night Live. And speaking of new music, Gaga recently met up with rap impresario Dr. Dre. While collaboration plans haven’t been confirmed, Dre did note that he’ll be sending her some tracks and then the ball is in her kooky court. This’ll could be their second collabo after the Gaga-endorsed Heartbeats from Monsters Beats By Dr. Dre line of earbuds.
The Fame Monster is set to be released on November 24th.
