[artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] sat down with Oprah Winfrey’s bestie, Gayle King, to discuss her forthcoming Nick Knight-directed videos for her chart-topping single “Born This Way,” from her May album of the same name.
“I do have some exciting news about the new single. I’ve been so excited about [the fans'] reaction and seeing the fans be so excited during the show every time we play ‘Born This Way,’ it’s been really amazing,” she told King. “I’ve made two music videos for the song.”
Gaga then went on to confirm that portions of the proceeds from the sale of the “stripped-down” version of the song, which will get its own video (further details about that clip were not known at press time), will go to charity. “So there’s one that’s coming out on Monday,” she explained. “But then I’m actually putting together another video, which is a more stripped-down version of the song that will be released on iTunes and also released as an audio file. A portion of the money raised selling the song is actually going to go towards an anti-bully charity.”
Mum has been the word on what the videos will actually be like. Though Gaga, in a recent radio interview , noted that the visual is about “the birth of a new race within the race of humanity. The birth of a new race that doesn’t bear any prejudices. I think the most important thing is that I continue to grow, and I knew when I put [out] ‘BTW’ it would be a transitional moment, because it doesn’t sound like [my previous singles].”
