lost a close friend when fashion designer Alexander McQueen
took his own life in Feburary 2010. Now, the pop superstar says she's pretty sure her buddy is helping her career from on high.
In an interview with Harper's Bazaar,
Gaga explained, "I think he planned the whole thing: Right after he died, I wrote "Born This Way." I think he's up in heaven wth fashion strings in his hands, marionetting away, planning this whole thing."
Adding to Lady Gaga's conviction is the fact that the single was released on the anniversary of her friend's death.
"When I heard that, I knew he planned the whole damn thing. I didn't even write the f***ing song. He did!"Browse the latest Lady Gaga pictures (click any photo):
