When talking to NDTV, Gaga admitted that her visits served as research. A source close to Gaga said, “Gaga would one day like to set up a foundation in her name to help children and, now her career has really taken off, she feels as if it’s the right time to do something. She isn’t the type of celebrity who just throws cash at things though.”
It’s clear that the country speaks to Gaga and serves as an important backdrop to a song like “Marry the Night.” Talking to the crowd at the party, Gaga revealed that she would perform “Marry the Night” for the first time, “I feel like I’ve waited a long time to come here. And I feel very grateful,” she told the excited crowd “For the first time ever, I’m going to sing ‘Marry the Night.’ “
Also while in India, the singer told NDTV that she directed the video herself, “Well, I can share exclusively with you that I directed this video myself. So this is my first directorial debut,” marking her first solo directing job. Previously she’s worked with Haus of Gaga and her creative director Laurieann Gibson.
She capped off her stay in India with a shout out to the biggest movie making city in the whole world, “Screw Hollywood. It’s all about Bollywood,” she wrote adding a picture to the message.
