    In an interview with MTV UK, Lady Gaga revealed that despite being penned for her late grandfather, her new song "The Edge of Glory" is also motivated by Sylvester Stallone's Rocky.

    "The Edge of Glory means a lot to me – it was written when my grandfather died. That song is about looking life in the eye and when you die saying 'I won, I'm a champion' like Rocky sprinting to the top of the staircase."

    Gaga also said, "Rocky is my favorite movie – I love Rocky 3 because he gets his ass kicked in the first round and comes back." It's true; Rocky Balboa is the consummate underdog.

    Gaga even revealed that Stallone's character, Rocky Balboa, is "the ideal man. I never wanted to be the rock star, I wanted to be the girlfriend – I never wanted to be Rocky, I wanted to be Adrian."

    Are you a fan of Rocky?
