Lady Gaga: ”Judas’ leaks are a slow death’ – video

Singer also calls songwriting '15 minutes of vomiting'

Lady Gaga has called the gradual leaks of her new single ‘Judas’ a “slow death”.

The track was rush-released last Friday (April 15) after it leaked.

Speaking in her new edition of ‘Gagavision’, one of her regular webisodes filmed before the track was rush-released, this week’s NME cover star said: “‘Judas’ is leaking, it’s like a slow death. They [the leaks] were tearing at the song, first it was the arm and then it was the liver.”


Gaga also opened up about songwriting, describing the way she writes songs as “15 minutes of vomiting.”

She said: “The creative process is 15 minutes of vomiting and then days, weeks, months, years of fine tuning.”

She also added that you “must honour your vomit.”
