Lady GaGa ‘can’t wait any longer’ to release new material

She warned you in a Tweet earlier this week — “Can’t wait any longer, single coming Friday.”

She wasn’t kidding.

And today is Friday. Ergo, “Born This Way” — the first single from the fabulous Lady GaGa’s upcoming album of the same name (out May 23) is now available for purchase at all your favorite outlets.

And Yes, it’s (yet again) a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, exhorting to celebrate their differences, not disguise them. And as one of the first dailies to predict her meteoric ascent — no joke — we think we know exactly what we’re talking about. Fans will not be disappointed.

Ms. GaGa is also partnering with the suddenly hip Target (as is Adele) for a special deluxe edition of her album, featuring three additional studio songs and five bonus remixes.

Starting today, you can preorder it at Target's website.

She never intended on becoming one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People In The World last year. But she most assuredly is, and anyone abnormally fixated on her campy outrageousness (an entire dress made of raw meat, for example) is missing the playfully brilliant point.
