News: Lady Gaga Explains “Partynauseous'” Absence On ‘Good Kid, m.A.A.d City’
A few months back, Lady Gaga tweeted about working with Kendrick Lamar on a track titled “Partynauseous.” Gaga said the track would appear on Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City. So when the GKMC tracklist dropped and Gaga wasn’t on the tracklist, a few of us were left scratching our heads. What happened to “Partynauseous?”
Mr. Kendrick briefly spoke about Gaga’s absence on GKMC while on The Breakfast Club earlier this week. “Me and Lady Gaga, we really good friends. She’s not on the album. We got some records, but when I was breaking down the bulk of the album, the ones we picked, we set them aside for future reference,” he said. But now Lady Gaga has taken to her blog to give us a more detailed explanation as to why she’s not on the album. Gaga blamed creative differences, but she promised to let us hear the track on a separate project. Read Lady Gaga’s statement down below. As for Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, it drops on October 22nd.
I apologize to the fans that this situation with Partynauseous is confusing. To it clear it up I must explain this. When I collaborate with an artist i work solely with them, not with their camps or management. Its purely organic and creative. I love Kendrick dearly as a friend, but was not willing to compromise musically to the changes his team was making to my music. This is why I am not his record. I have a very specific vision as a producer and songwriter, and I always have. That song will be released at a different time, for a different project. I love you, and think you should check out his stuff because he is truly great. He’s a good kid, its just sometimes a mad city. -LG
