- In a new interview, Lady Gaga revealed the source of new-music inspiration she consulted for her "Stupid Love" single, saying, "I'm gonna talk to all my fairies."
- Gaga's single dropped last Friday, along with a fun, fantastical music video.
- The song is the first single to be released from her forthcoming sixth studio album.
Since the dawn of man, muses have roused artists to create some of the most iconic pieces of art. Pattie Boyd inspired George Harrison's lusciously romantic ballad "Something." Emilie Flöge animated Gustav Klimt's most memorable paintings. And we now know, musical fairies helped bring Lady Gaga's "Stupid Love" and further music from her forthcoming album to life.
In a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Gaga revealed her unconventional muses, saying per E! News, "Sometimes you have to move your body and your spirit and your soul that really even access what you're actually feeling and I was feeling so down so many days ... before I went into the studio to work, and then I would go in and I would just ... sit there with [producer] BloodPop and go, 'Okay, I'm gonna open the portal, I'm gonna listen, I'm gonna talk to all my fairies.' All the fairies that help me write music and I'm gonna ask them what the world needs to hear."
Gaga's latest single, "Stupid Love," is the first to drop from her forthcoming studio album, set to be released April 10th. She also mentioned that she hopes her new album will help empower fans and listeners everywhere. "I really want to do and want this song to come out and I'd love for it to collapse as many of those walls as possible," she said. "And people to be saying, 'I want your Stupid Love. I love you.'"
