Lady Gaga Is Already Writing For Her Next Album

And she doesn’t care if critics don’t love Joanne

No one can accuse Lady Gaga of being dishonest, especially through her music. Fans who have followed Mother Monster since and before The Fame know that each of her albums denotes a specific point in her evolution as an artist and growth as a person with some of those, like ARTPOP and Joanne sounding very different from the music that made her famous--much to some people's chagrin.

Now that she's started strutting across the country and soon the world in her stilettos and pink cowboy hat, she's cemented the Joanne era and begun looking forward. "I've started writing," Gaga told Entertainment Weekly, giving a tease but not much more. It's yet to be seen whether or not another track will get the single treatment from Gaga's country-infused fifth studio album. Fans have been campaigning for "Dancin' in Circles" since day one, but as The Fame Monster taught us, an album full of single-ready songs doesn't necessarily mean we'll hear them all bumping on the radio (RIP "Dance in the Dark").

Whether or not her albums break the charts, Gaga always looks inward, to her own journey through her music to gauge an album's success. "You have to be sure about who and what you are, and have that be the most important thing," she said. "If every time somebody has a comment about what to do or makes a statement about your work, if you shift as the wind were blowing, [then] you have no perspective or spinal cord as an artist." Pleasing herself has come first and foremost with each album she's released, each noticeably different from the last.

"Every single one of my albums--no matter if they were received with critical acclaim, commercial acclaim, or artistic acclaim--every time I plant my feet further into myself, and that is what I believe to be honorable as an artist. You fall on the sword always. It's your work, and when I make my work, there's a reason and I think about it and I love it, and that's what matters." Read the full EW interview, here.
