In the midst of her global “Born This Way” Ball tour, Lady Gaga surprised fans on a concert stop in Melbourne, Australia, with a new song: the ballad “Princess Die.”
“This song may or may not be on my next album, but I wrote it a little while ago and I’ve never ever played it for anyone,” says Gaga before playing the new tune. “I’m going to play it because I’ve been really excited and impressed with how many super fans have been at the show.”
“So this song is a little bit sad and it’s in no way reflective of the rest of the music on the album, but it’s about some of the most personal thoughts I’ve ever had,” she adds.
“Leave the coffin open when I go
and leave my pearls and lipstick on, so everybody knows.”
“Maybe I’ll just clean the s**t off of these fancy shoes.
I’ll be a Princess Die and die with you.”
