!! OMG, quote of the day: Gaga talks working with Max Martin for the first time !!

“He’s an amazing producer. I’ve never worked with him, I’ve always sort of gone, ‘I write my own music, I produce myself, I don’t need to work with Max, right?’ And I decided to stop being an asshole, meet him at least, you know? Basically, I sang over a track that Bloodpop made. We sent over what I sang to Max, Max picked some parts out, sent it back to me, and then I wrote lyrics and used some of the melody that he chose that he sent back to me and I kind of spliced it all together and then I went to his studio, and sat down at a piano and I played ‘Stupid Love’ on a piano with chords. And I looked at him and I said, ‘That’s what I’ve got for you,’ and to me, this song can only stand on it’s two feet, even with a great track, if you can play it on a piano and it still sounds like a hit. And he was-he was like, I love it, get in the booth. I warmed up my voice, got in the booth, I sang it, and what you’re hearing on ‘Stupid Love’ is what we did that day.”
