I was 19 when it came out and now I'm almost 30.  Excuse me while I turn to dust and blow away.

Still listen to it a lot.  It came out at a really tumultuous time in my life and was one of the only things that helped me keep it together.  Eternally grateful to Gaga for this record.

BTW will be one of the most socially impactful work that Gaga has put out. It became a staple anthem for Pride and the song saved countless of LGBTQ+ lives when society was unforgiving. It ripped open the conversation about LGBTQ+ community and put them in the spotlight. It saved my life. For that, I am forever grateful to Gaga.

I will never, ever forget the moment her dancers started taking off their clothing and throwing it into the air at the Grammys. Such an AMAZING performance.

Listening to this album is just as exciting for me now as it was when I was 14. I was at home alone that day and the first thing I did in the morning when everyone left was buy the album with my moms credit card and burn it onto a CD, then brought it to my room and blasted it over my stereo for hours. Ugh what a moment in time :messga:

The third album by miss Gaga, Born This Way was released today, 9 years ago! 

The iconic record is still adored by fans, with many citing it as her best work to date. The album, consisting of 17 original tracks on the deluxe edition is an anthem-fused spectacle that tackles themes such as self-empowerment, fame and of course, love. Songs such as the title track, are regarded as gay anthems and have empowered millions of fans worldwide to be true to themselves, no matter their sexuality, race, gender identity, religion/faith or if they live with medical conditions/disabilities. The album has sold millions worlwide, where it opened in the US at #1, with sales of 1,108,000 in its first week alone. It was nominated for two grammys; Best Pop Album and Album Of The Year.

There were 5 singles to promote the era, kicking off with Born This Way , which was released on February 11th 2011, and became Gaga's third chart topper and first #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained at the top spot for 6 consecutive weeks. It has since been certified 6x Platinum by RIAA for sales excess of 6,000,000 copies in the US.

On April 15, Judas was released as the album's second official single, where it peaked in the top 10 of many music markets, such as in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. The 2x Platinum song created some controversy, due to its strong religious metaphors and symbolism and its release clashing with Easter celebrations. Nevertheless, the song has since become a fan favorite, and my 2nd favorite Gaga song of all time!

Next, The Edge Of Glory and Hair were released as promotional singles on May 9th and 16th respectively, where they debuted at #3 and #12. Due to the overwhelming response of The Edge Of Glory and Judas' under-performance, it was quickly made the 3rd Official single from Born This Way, where it is certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA. Lyrically, the song was inspired by Gaga's grandfather, who had recently passed away the year before. The song also contains a saxophone solo from Clarence Clemons, who sadly passed away just 2 days after the video premiere.

Yoü and I was the first song written for the record, where Gaga would perform it on her Blockbuster Tour, The Monster Ball. Lyrically, the song is about Lüc Carl, who Gaga had once claimed was the 'most important person [she] has ever met'. The song was acclaimed upon release and was released as the album's 4th single on August 23rd 2011. The Country Rock inspired song was a big hit in the US, where it became Gaga's 11th consecutive and overall top 10, at the time. It has since been certified 3x Platinum and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 2012 ceremony. 

The song was performed at the 2011 MTV VMA awards, where Gaga took on the role of Jo Calderone for the evening, which blessed the world with one of her most memorable performances.

On November 15th, Gaga released the fifth and final single, Marry The Night. The song is a fan favorite for its fantastic production and inspiring nature. It has been certified Platinum by the RIAA and was a Top 20 single in a few countries, such as the United Kingdom and Canada, among other countries, where it peaked at #16 and #11 respectively. This is my all time favorite Gaga song, as well as the video that accompanies this amazing song!

This Iconic record was supported by the Born This Way Ball. The 98 date tour consisted of 8 legs and kicked off on April 27th 2012 in Seoul and concluded on February 11th 2013 in Montreal, after Gaga had sustained an injury to her hip. The Tour grossed over $201,840,000.

I lived and breathed this album before and after it came out, it will never get boring. There isn't one single thing about that era I didn't like. The music, the fashion, the visuals, the performances, the music videos (MTN :diane:)

I just remember being 13-14 and all the anticipation, literally the best thing to grow up with. Initially it took me time to warm up to BTW the single, but then Judas blew my mind the night it leaked and I never looked back. Still my favorite Gaga album today. :firega:
