What a week for music lovers: half the world has been busy saving up their allowance for a ticket to Never Say Never. And the other (dare we say older) half? They've been counting down the days until today, when Lady Gaga released her much-hyped new single, "Born This Way."
So, how is it?
You tell us.
Last week she teased us by posting the song's lyrics online, but now we actually get to hear her deliver such vintage Gaga lines as, "Don't be a drag, just be a queen," "A different lover is not a sin, believe capital H-I-M" and "Rejoice and love yourself today, cause baby you were born this way."
While she's undoubtedly giving her audience what they want, the tune lacks a bit of the ferocity and urgency of a "Just Dance" or "Paparazzi." But do we care? Of course not.
In any case, we dare you to make it all the way through the song without tapping your foot. Or go 20 minutes this weekend without hearing it blasting out of someone's speakers. In the meantime, give it a listen and let us know what you think!
