“Born This Way” fashion plate Lady Gaga hit up the Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night and discussed the egg—excuse us, vessel—she arrived in at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. Additionally, she told Jay that it took her a year (!!!) to produce her new single, and she mentioned how much she loves Willow Smith, who was sitting behind her at the Grammys with dad Will. “I told her that she inspired me to whip my hair back and forth on stage,” Gaga informed. She then discussed the controversy between “Born This Way” and Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” Watch below.
“There is really no one who is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me,” Gaga said to Leno. “I am the hugest fan, personally and professionally. Well the good news is I got an email from her people sending me their love and support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be!”
Gaga later announced she’s taping a special on her Monster Ball concert for HBO.
