Orville Peck's Cover of 'Born This Way' Is Queer, Country Heaven

Don't be a drag, just be a (country) queen! 

In a pleasantly surprising move, queer country icon and king of masks Orville Peck released an official cover of Lady Gaga's iconic, Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit "Born This Way." 

Orville's countrified version of Gaga's seminal queer anthem is going to be included in the upcoming special, 10th-anniversary edition of her 2011 Born This Way album, which is set for release on June 18. 

But Peck isn't the only queer music superstar putting a spin on one of Gaga's classic bops. Just last week, the world was blessed with "Judas" by bounce icon Big Freedia!

"'Judas" was my favorite song when it came out originally, so I really wanted to cover it," Freedia said in a statement. "I am beyond excited that it’s the first to drop from this project! To me, 'Judas' is a love song about when someone does you dirty. I’ve sure had my experience with that. Who can’t relate?"

And more queer covers of some of the bops from Gaga's Born This Way tracklist are still on the way, with updated versions of "Marry the Night," "You and I," and "The Edge of Glory" coming out soon from still-unannounced artists!
