    Lady Gaga gave late night talk show host David Letterman the scoop and the skinny on her famous egg. You know, the egg she encased herself in when walking the Grammy red carpet back in February; it was carried RIGHT past me on the carpet and I just knew it was Gaga as soon as I saw it!

    "...For me, it's a place where I can meditate and experience rebirth," Gaga said. "So I just get inside of it and close it and then when I feel that I have been reborn spiritually, I just, whoo, come out."

    It's sort of like Michael Jackson's hyperbaric chamber from the '80s, right? It's Gaga's nesting place, her safe haven.

    Asked how long the rebirth process takes, Gaga replied: "It depends. ... I just really believe that you can be reborn over and over and over again until you find that part of you that is the best you that you can be, so I encourage everyone to be that way. I wonder what would happen if I put you in an egg?"

    When Letterman replied that he didn't think he'd fit, Gaga told him they could get in together. "You could be the yolk," she quipped. A Gaga/Letterman sandwich, er, egg!

    What do you think of Lady Gaga's explanation of her egg? Did you nab a copy of Born This Way yet?
