Lady Gaga Says Monster Ball Tour Shows Her 'Evolution'

Monster Ball is about 'how I've changed over the years,' singer says.

Whether parading around with her disco stick or staging her own death at the VMAs, [artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] knows how to put on a visually enticing show. In a recent interview with Dallas radio station KISS 106.1, the singer spoke about her upcoming Monster Ball Tour, which kicks off its 22-date run next month in Montreal.

"It's really amazing. The show is based on kind of this theme of evolution, which has a lot to do with how I've changed over the years, and kind of in a way, in a symbolic way of describing myself as a person, as Gaga," she said.

The Monster Ball was scheduled on the heels of her canceled Fame Kills Tour with Kanye West. Gaga said she wouldn't include any concepts from the tour that never was, but she did say that the show will tell a story in the performance-arts fashion fans expect. "I actually hatch out of an egg in the show. That's the beginning of the show. It's kind of the beginning of evolution. I begin as a cell," she revealed.

Gaga also talked about pre-packaged pop stars and the fact that she isn't one. The singer takes pride in her past, even if it took her a long time to get where she is today.

"In a way, I think it's kind of convoluted the way that people do think about it, because the assumption is that they believe that pop singers should kind of pop out of nowhere and be born and cracked out of an egg one year that the record label lays, and that's not the way that should happen," she told the radio station.

The Monster Ball will support the singer's re-packaged album, The Fame: Monster, which hits stores on November 24. Opening acts include Kid Cudi and Jason Derulo, who recently told MTV News that he'd be on the second half of the tour.
