Prior to the performance, the Mother Monster has a chat with Ellen DeGeneres, talking about why she felt like 'a loser' among other things.
Lady GaGa's pre-taped performance of "Judas" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" has aired Thursday night, April 28. Baring her midriff in a blue latex outfit, the Monster ringleader took the center stage with some backing dancers dressed in black. She roared to the audience, singing her controversial single.
Before the performance, GaGa sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an interview. Appearing on the stage in a black revealing dress, the "Born This Way" hitmaker jokingly scolded the host for trying to outdo her entrance by riding in on a giant shoe/roller skate. "I'm very upset about your entrance. I feel like you're trying to outdo me. I've never done the shoe," she said.
They then talked about her fame and Monster Balls tour, and her recent meltdown. Addressing why she called herself "a loser" in upcoming HBO documentary, GaGa explained, "Well, in that moment I was very excited and nervous. That is a huge benchmark moment in my life. I'm 25 years old. I was asked to play Madison Square Garden. Sold out 5 nights and quite frankly it's very overwhelming."
She added, "I feel misunderstood and I think we all feel misunderstood sometimes. I really celebrate my identity and urge you to feel impassioned by what is magical inside of you. I live halfway between reality and fantasy, and that is who I am and that is what inspires me."
