Fans have been donning their best [artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] costumes for the first three stops on the latest leg of her Monster Ball Tour , and MTV News has been there all the way. Gaga’s dedicated Little Monsters have been turning out in droves to see their Mother Monster belt out her hits, including her latest smash, the anthemic disco number “Born This Way.”

Fans told MTV News that the song’s feel-good message has resonated with them. “I think it’s fantastic that she decided to put that song out first before any other more noteworthy songs she might have,” Juliana explained. “Because it meant something to her.”

Lisa further explained that “it means no matter what you are, who you are, who you want to be, you just can’t help it, because you were born this way.”

Meghan thinks “Born This Way” is a great track to pump yourself up with when you’re feeling low. “It means that no one should really be able to tell you who you can and can’t be, because obviously you can’t change how you are,” she said. “And you should just express that.”

Kristen added: “Nobody should discriminate against you for anything. Just be who you are, be proud and that’s it.”

Mon Cheri boiled down what the song means to her: “Do what you want to do! I mean, keep it real, keep it safe and keep it legal, but you got to do you, hon.”

Not only does the song have a great message, but as Alicia pointed out, it also is awesome to dance to. “It’s just perfect. … Everything that she’s about is in that song,” she said. “And it has an amazing, catchy beat, as usual.”

Marie said the tune sums up what Lady Gaga is all about: “It’s everything she says in interviews all wrapped up into a song.”
