    Lady Gaga told The Wall Street Journal that digital copies of Born This Way aren't worth more than 99 cents, which is the loss-leading price at which Amazon.com sold the album for twice last week.

    WSJ asked Gaga if she thought that the album was worth more and she said, "No. I absolutely do not, especially for MP3s and digital music. It's invisible. It's in space. If anything, I applaud a company like Amazon for equating the value of digital versus the physical copy, and giving the opportunity to everyone to buy music."

    She also thanked Amazon for selling the album at a price that cost the company millions but promoted its new cloud-based service, saying, "It also wasn't really 99 cents, because Amazon paid the difference on all of those purchases as part of their promotional campaign for one of their new services," she said. "I think it's amazing and it was a really nice surprise."
