(LOS ANGELES) -- On Thursday, Lady Gaga called into the Ellen DeGeneres Show to confirm that she'll be performing her new single, Born This Way, on the Grammy Awards Feb. 13.
But as a special preview, Gaga decided to reveal the lyrics to the song. First, she parceled out chunks of the lyrics to different websites, and then asked her fans to make "#bornthiswaylyrics" a trending topic on Twitter. In about 10 minutes, it was the number-one trending topic worldwide, so she posted the entire set of lyrics via a link on her Twitter feed.
Speaking to Ellen, Gaga explained why her single's coming out in February, but her album won't hit stores until May 23. She said, "I wish it was coming out in March! But you know, I really want to take the time to set it up properly, and do all the TV [shows] I need to do."
