Lady Gaga has been road-testing her new song “Gypsy."
Gaga performed the six-minute-long "ARTPOP" album track in its entirety on a grand piano, for guests at an exclusive listening party in Berlin.
Wearing black lingerie and an unflattering ”gypsy theme” mustache, Gaga told the audience, “I wrote this song as I was travelling around the world…they say ‘a Gypsy doesn’t have a home.’ But I do have a home. I have a home with you always.”
A tired-sounding Mother Monster hits a few odd-notes through the song, but her many fans will be spellbound by this debut delivery. “This is my first performance of this record, it’s very special to me, thank you for sharing it with me,” she says.
Her fans lap it up, offering hand-hearts -- and handmade signs -- for their hero. As she wraps it all up, she gives a parting gift in basic German – “Danke schoen kleine monsters, I love you.” And a final, “Gute nachte.”
"ARTPOP" is due out Nov. 11.
