'3‑Way (The Golden Rule)' hitmaker Lady Gaga has said that her new album will be less painful than 'Artpop'.
Having a chat to her good friend James Franco for V magazine, Gaga said that working on American Horror Story had allowed her a place to put all her pain and misery, which should mean less of it has to go in her music.
“When I wasn’t working on the show I was truly miserable because I had no safe house to get out any of my vices,” she mused.
“Now I have a safe house for my vices so when I’m making music I just have a lot more clarity. I have a little less of an instinct to be reckless with my music now because I’m reckless in other places. So now I’m thinking more about what it is I want to say and what I want to leave on Earth.”
So is the new album more or less of an expression of all her pain?
“It’s less an expression of all my pain. There will be some of my pain on the record for sure, but it will be more than that."
"My last album was riddled with a ton of pain. That whole record. It’s almost like you couldn’t even get to what it is. Now, the show gives me an outlet to put things somewhere, so when I get to the piano I’m in a deeper place already. I have something completely other to explore."
As long as it's at least as good as 'The Fame Monster' we'll all be happy. Good.
