Lady Gaga gave
her keynote speech Friday morning at SXSW after her extremely buzzed about performance last night on Doritos Bold Stage that included raw vocals, a mechanical bull, vomit, white blonde dread locks, and screaming fans. Gaga became the first female to deliver the keynote in over 15 years, and as well as the youngest artist to be selected as a keynote ever.
During her interview, Gaga revealed fans can expect her next music video to drop next Saturday, which some assume will likely be the video for “G.U.Y.” which see was seen filming at Hearst Castle earlier last month.
She shared views on the music industry today, wanting artists to express their own creativity, to support one another both new and old, and to maintain their artist individuality. She added that she will retire from the commercial music industry before she changes herself for anybody.
At one point she was asked about the competition fuelled by media with artists and the ridiculous standards people hold her to, gaga continued saying, “I don't know what the f--k I have to do with Katy Perry. My music is so completely different and I couldn't be more different."
Lady Gaga announced there is, in fact, an ARTPOP Volume II
, and she confirmed its completion, and is already enjoying it with friends. She did give a brief glimmer of hope for fans, noting maybe one day she’ll release it.
We hope you do Gaga, and we’ll be waiting for it!
