"It's funny to see a lot of websites and blogs saying, 'Why is everybody shocked that she's so incredibly talented?'" says Gaga's manager Bobby Campbell to Billboard. "The world is celebrating her talent in a very mainstream way."
Blogs like BreatheHeavy (receipts).
Campbell adds Gaga's projects have been in the works for a better part of a year, and that her new pop record probably won't drop until next year.
Steve Berman, vice chairman of her label Interscope adds: "It was important that the message is the yin and yang of Gaga."
That spiritual balance is evident, says super-producer RedOne, who worked with Gaga on "Poker Face" "Just Dance" and "Bad Romance."
"She has a cleaner life and I have a cleaner life now -- I see her happy, smiling like the girl that I knew before," he says. "She's in a really beautiful place."
In a separate interview, RedOne claims Gaga's next record could be "album of the decade."
“The new material feels great. And that’s what it is like with me and her – when we both feel great, it’s incredible. A lot of it is to do with trust, no ego, just love for the music. And when it’s fun and respectful, putting the egos aside, it’s magic.”
