Though her moonlighting gig as an actress is paying off, Lady Gaga isn't about to quit her day job.
“You know, I am putting out an album this year," the popstar told reporters backstage after winning her first Golden Globe. "I won’t tell you when!”
Gaga was short on details, but did reveal that her role as The Countess helped inform her new music.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
“That’s a difficult thing to say as I don’t know that you yet know what I will look like for my next album, as I’m still creating all of those things. It’s something that is a gradual change always with me. What was nice about playing The Countess is it reminded me that in my own life and in my music, I’m always — at times — playing a character, and I become them fully. And living inside of her was liberating, I’ll tell you, because she doesn’t give a sh– about anything.”
Gaga might not be done quite yet with the awards show circuit—her original song for the campus rape documentary The Hunting Ground, "Til It Happens to You", has some potential Oscar buzz. With nominations being announced on Thursday, however, the Lady is not counting her chickens just yet.
“Shall we just take it a day at a time dear?” she told The Guardian. “This is a lot. An Oscar nomination would be tremendous. But the true win is in the work, and I really truly feel that. The win is always in the creative process.”
