Gaga said of playing new music: “Absolutely. It’s going to be really fun and I’m really excited, the stage [for the tour] has been designed and it’s being built.”
“We’ve been building the story of the show since the Super Bowl, and we’re beginning to delineate where we want choreography, what songs I’d like to play at the piano, and lighting is a big thing this year. The stage is very different from anything we’ve ever done before.”
Gaga also spoke briefly about her role in the recently wrapped remake of ‘A Star Is Born’. The movie that Bradley Cooper appeared at Glastonbury to shoot.
“[The film] brought me back to another time in my life. It also brought me to a different place, because there are some things about [Gaga’s character] and I that are different.”
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has backed Ed Sheeran after he quit Twitter after becoming fed up with online abuse from trolls.
Gaga wrote on Instagram: “What an incredible talented artist I LOVE ED. [He] deserves all our love and respect like all humans do. I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and apart of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean.”
