"It’s not relevant anymore to be hateful about equality, it’s not relevant anymore to be bitter, it’s not relevant anymore to hold onto the past and hold onto the pain of what was. What’s relevant now is to leave that all behind and look forward to a future where it doesn’t matter what you are because we are all human, and we all deserve to be valued no matter where we are. So that’s what my message is. That’s what ‘Born This Way’ is all about, and I couldn’t give two shits about record sales, and I honestly don’t give two shits about anyone and what they think of me. I don’t wake up in the morning and care if people like me, all I care about is that you smile and you feel something when you hear this music. So, on that note little monsters… Thank you. Thank you for being the powerful, amazing generation that you are. I’m so proud to be your popstar, and I want you to know that I don’t ever want to be your Queen. So don’t ask me to. Don’t call me your Queen. I’m you, I’m just one of you. I’m just one of you that works really hard and is speaking the truth, and anyone one of you could do it, and I truly believe that."
