[artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga[/artist] is up for five gramophones at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards , including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. And instead of thanking her collaborators or even taking credit for it herself, she has only one group of people to thank for this latest marker of the success she’s amassed over the last year: her fans.
As the nominations for the Grammy Awards were being announced in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, Gaga was performing at Boston’s Wang Theater on the latest stop of her Monster Ball Tour . During the show, she broke the news to the crowd that she’d received five nods for her album The Fame and her single “Poker Face.”
“So, thank you to all of you little monsters. This year, you were nominated for five Grammy Awards,” she can be seen telling her fans in a video posted online. “If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be where I am today, so thank you!”
She continued that with the nominations announced, there wasn’t much else to do but party. “But now we will celebrate. And the truth is there’s only one thing in the world that I really, really hate. Does anyone know what that is?” she asked the crowd. “Money. But there’s only one thing I hate more than money … and that’s the truth. I don’t like the truth. I like a giant dose of bullsh– any day.” She then launched into a performance of her song “Teeth,” off her recently released The Fame Monster.
Gaga producer and collaborator RedOne was on hand at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Los Angeles Wednesday night, and he said he couldn’t believe how many nods they’d received. “It’s overwhelming. I got tears, tears in my eyes. It’s unbelievable. It’s crazy,” he told MTV News. “I mean, no one did expect it this big, but we knew the music was incredible when we first started.”
