These days, Lady Gaga will tell anyone who will listen that her new album is 100 percent finished, but that she won't be putting it out until next year.
In fact, earlier this week at the kickoff of the North American leg of her Monster Ball Tour in Montreal, she told her "little monsters" that she's been listening to the new songs before taking the stage, and that she's simply dying to let her fans hear them. Of course, she followed that statement up by unveiling "You and I," a song that had leaked to YouTube a few days earlier, which only further whetted fans' appetites.
With so much brand-new Lady Gaga music so tantalizingly close to being released, we decided to ask LG's fans what they're expecting to hear on the album — and whom, if anyone, they would like to see their Mother Monster collaborate with on the record.
We heard a whole lot of the usual suspects — Britney Spears, Katy Perry (though we sort of doubt that will happen anytime soon), Madonna, etc. — but the fans in Montreal also had some rather, uh, less-than-traditional suggestions, some of which would be positively amazing if they ever came to fruition.
"I would like to see Marilyn Manson with her," Nicholas Vansorto said. "She has made a remix with him, but I would like to hear a song with Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga. It would be amazing."
"Nicki Minaj!" Shareejah Daley suggested. "Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga would be crazy."
Of course, there are still those out there who think that Gaga's at her best when she's flying solo — and that's exactly what they want to hear on her new album.
"I know she's not going to work with anybody — she's not going to do any duets," Genevieve Plante said. "I would like if she would continue on the way of 'Telephone,' or 'Dance in the Dark,' 'Bad Romance,' I would love that."
"I want to see her work with no one but herself right now, because Gaga's Gaga," Danik Renaud added. "So there shouldn't be anyone [else] — other than Beyoncé, of course."
