It was a gigantic moment for lots of people, especially the LGBTQ+ youth. What an era!

Where it all began ~ September 12th 2010

Gaga recorded most the songs for the Born This Way album on her Studio Bus and various recording studios around the world while touring with the Monster Ball Tour.

The first we heard about its name and concept was during the 2010 MTV VMAs. She announced the title during her acceptance speech for the Video of the Year which she received for Bad Romance. She was, obviously, wearing her now iconic Meat Dress during the moment.

Remember that evening. Honestly didn't really catch much of the song there but the title was already iconic.

I spent the next few months following on from that moment singing the one lyric we had in her style at the VMAs over and over again. I thought we were getting a ballad based on the way she sang it!

Nick Knight photoshoot ~ December 14th 2010

On December 14th 2010, Gaga had a photoshoot with Nick Knight. The photoshoot would eventually form some of the artwork for the era including the single cover for the album's lead single. Have a look at the photoshoot below and comment on your thoughts:

It's my favourite era with TFM 2nd place. It's mainly ahead because the build up to the release of the lead single was the most I have EVER stanned or loved an artist heart.gif

Shooting of the Born This Way music video ~ January 22nd-24th 2011

The shooting of the music video for "Born This Way" began on January 22nd 2011, and spanned until the 24th. Lady Gaga told 92.3 that the vision and theme of the video is birthing a new race within humanity.

It was eventually released on February 28th (but more on that when the day comes).

On the 24th Gaga revealed plans of a second music video. The video will use a more stripped down version of the song, and the video will be released onto iTunes following the release of the first video. The money raised from downloads will go to charity. It is rumored that the video was shot but for some reason was never released.

~

For some reason, I can't seem to find any behind the scenes images from the video - so if anyone has any, please share!

Some more on the creative process in the build up to the video shoot:
  • The video was directed by Nick Knight.
  • Gaga chose New York to shoot the video because the city is her birthplace.
  • Before shooting started, Gibson and Gaga decided there was only one place to work on the avant-garde, modern dance routine for the video, Alvin Alley, where Gibson had studied dance.
  • Since Gaga did not want set pictures to be taken before the video was ready, her team had to hide the location and were successful, except at the last day when paparazzi started sneaking around.
  • The costumes for the video were designed by Formichetti, who blogged about the various designer pieces shown in it.

It's crazy how artists have totally changed the way they communicate these days. I doubt that a superstar of her calibre would reveal anything about a future single and video in a random radio interview!

The team were so passionate about this project. The way they kept everything from the set totally hidden - even today I can't find a single BTS shot ohmy.gif It must have been such a great, cathartic experience to film the video wub.gif

This thread is so nostalgic already and the era hadn't even really begun! Thanks so much for creating this.
