"It has a real, genuine, powerful message about fame-whoring and death and the demise of the celebrity, and what that does to young people. The video explores ideas about sort of hyperbolic situations that people will go to in order to be famous. Most specifically, pornography and murder." - Lady Gaga
"The song is about a few different things – it's about my struggles, do I want fame or do I want love? It's a love song for the cameras, but it's also a love song about fame or love – can you have both, or can you only have one?" - Lady Gaga
"It's a real Pop record but still kind of twisted too. And it has a really intelligent pop art message behind it. That's one of my favorite songs on the record. I'm really proud of that song." - Lady Gaga
