Lady Gaga fans should be thanking their Mother Monster, because they won't have to wait nearly as long to see the "Born This Way" music video as they did to hear the song. The clip will premiere next Monday (Feb. 28) at 11 am ET on the website of celeb blogger and Gaga pal Perez Hilton before airing on MTV's "The Seven" at 5 pm ET.

The "Born This Way" video was co-directed by Gaga, her longtime choreographer longtime, Laurieann Gibson, and celebrated fashion photographer Nick Knight. The song itself debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, making it the 1,000th song to top the chart in its 52-year history. Gaga told Billboard.com that the milestone is "a tremendous honor," and in Billboad's latest cover story she dished on the entire album, which is slated for a May 23 release.

"It's quite eclectic," said Gaga. "It ranges from 'Born This Way' being very light to the rest of the album becoming quite darker. I in jest say that 'Born This Way' is the marijuana to the heroins of the album, the ultimate intense intoxication of the record. It's an analogy."

Gaga's video comes right on the heels of another anticipated visual a pop star, as Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" clip made its debut last week. Judging by Gaga's most recent video premieres for "Alejandro" and "Telephone," and the response to "Born This Way" thus far, all signs point to the new clip arriving with just as much fanfare.
