But don’t forget who you really are. And I’m not talking about your so-called real name. All names are made up by someone else, even the one your parents gave you. You know who you really are. When you’re alone at night, looking up at the stars, or maybe lying in your bed in total darkness, you know that nameless person inside of you…Your muscles will toughen. So will your heart and soul. That’s necessary for survival. But don’t lose touch with that person deep inside you, or else you won’t really have survived at all.
And I created the Monster Ball so that my fans would have a place to go, a place where all of the freaks are outside and we lock the fucking doors. Some people in this world are addicted to hate, and they preach messages of divisiveness. But here at the Monster Ball you are free, and we preach love, and we preach truth, and we preach unity and togetherness. So you remember that when you’re lonely, I’m fucking lonely too. — Lady Gaga
