She said: "My favorite things about 'Born This Way' album is that it was risky and its own thing. 'ARTPOP' is very risky. If you're not taking a risk you're not breaking any boundaries."
She also explained why the new album was taking so long. She added: "I feel so bad. I know you all wanna kill me," she said. "But nobody writes my songs for me! Every single song you've ever heard by me, I created from nothing with friends. So it takes some time. New inspiration. New sounds. New experiences. I feel like 'ARTPOP' is what I've been making since 'The Fame'. It's what has defined me and my fans and we are claiming the music that is ours. I love you guys so much."
Finally, she was asked if she had smoked marijuana while recording the album. She said: "No weed on 'ARTPOP. No. Weed in the bathtub though. Hahaha."
