MGMT Inspired by Kanye West and Lady GaGa in New Album


MGMT


Realizing that they can't keep partying after receiving success, MGMT think about Lady GaGa and Kanye West in how they handle their worldwide success and focus on making their new album.

Rockers MGMT channeled Kanye West and Lady GaGa for their second album - as they tried to imagine what life is like for superstars in the spotlight. The "Time To Pretend" hitmakers won over fans and critics alike with their 2007 debut "Oracular Spectacular", and the New York duo admits they struggled to come to terms with their worldwide success.

But when it came time to write a follow-up album, MGMT turned to rapper West and pop sensation GaGa as they wrote about their own rising levels of fame. MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden tells Spin.com, "(After our debut) we were a group of guys in their mid-20s touring around the world and of course we are going to party. But after a while we all learned that you can't just keep doing that over and over, and the new record addresses those issues."

"On some of the new songs, I found myself thinking about Lady GaGa or Kanye West, and what their ultimate goal is. This sounds cheesy, but for us it's really just about the music and getting people to hear what we have to say," he says. "I'm sure it's about the music for those people, too... but fame... it's an interesting career."
