Lady Gaga discusses immigration in her new song, and she recently talked to Vogue about her controversial album, saying it is “a big mariachi techno-house record, where I am singing about immigration law and gay marriage and all sorts of things that have to do with disenfranchised communities in America. It sounds like a pop record, but when I sing it, I see Edith Piaf in a spotlight with an old microphone.”
Although the official video for Americano has not yet been released, you can hear the live performance of the song below. The song is sung partly in English and partly in Spanish.
“Mis canciones son de la revolucion/ Mi corazon late por mi generacion,” which MTV translates as “My songs are of the revolution/ My heart beats for my generation.”
She goes on to sing: “If you love me/ We can marry on the West Coast/ On a Wednesday/ En el verano o en agosto (in the summer or in August).”
“Feeling so much MonsterLove, Americano Tears,” Lady Gaga tweeted today.
