"I won't tell you yet what the [next single] is, but I will say I haven't been excited about a video like this in a really long time. The relation of the video to my real life as well as my dream of the future is really what makes it so special.

"I will also say that Yuyi [Gaga's mermaid persona] is in incubation, for anyone who knows what that means. [...] I won't explain it, but all the little monsters who are super super fans will understand what I'm saying if they follow my Twitter. Yuyi may just be born in the next video."
