    Producer DJ White Shadow (real name: Paul Blair) who worked on Lady Gaga's Born This Way, spoke to our friends at Billboard about the process and the privilege of working with Gaga. Below are two questions and answers from the interview.

    When and where did you record the song "Born This Way"? How would you describe the sound of it?
    She made it. She came up with the idea, she wrote it. She is a genius. We recorded it around the world, on the road, in whatever was available. It sounds like it reads, but not like you think until you hear it.

    Did you work on any other album tracks?
    Yes. I have been working on this record for well over a year. It has been awesome. Sonically it is much more complex. It's beautiful. Like a golden spaceship touching down on a rainbow runway in a field of fresh mint.

    That's descriptive for sure! A golden spaceship? A rainbow runway? Love it.

    Do DJ White Shadow's comments make you want to hear Born This Way even more?
