''It's the 'fear of suffocation': something that I have or fear is never being able to enjoy myself: because I love my work so much, I find it really hard to go out and have a good time. I don’t go to nightclubs. You don’t see pictures of me falling out of a club drunk. I don’t go—and that’s because I usually go and then, you know, a whiskey and a half into it, I got to get back to work.'' - Lady Gaga
''The phone on the song isn't just a physical phone, but also that person in my head telling me to keep working harder and harder. That's my fear: that the phone's ringing and my head's ringing. Whether it's a telephone or it's just the thoughts in your head, that's another fear." - Lady Gaga
''I wrote it for Britney Spears a long time ago and she just didn’t use it for her album. It’s fine because I love the song and I get to perform it now .'' - Lady Gaga
