Pop star Lady Gaga on Friday released her gay anthem Born This Way.

The title single from her second studio album to be released in May was released two days earlier than previously announced.

Before the song was released, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton told MTV News that the song was “gay-in-your-face gay.”

“It is a very gay song – unapologetically, gay-in-your-face gay – but it's also a universal song that can relate to everyone. To all us outsiders, to all of us freaks, to all of us who feel different. And the music is undeniable. It sounds like a smash. It is a smash. It is one of the best songs of Gaga's career.”

In a cover story for the March issue of Vogue, Lady Gaga said, “I wrote [Born This Way] in 10 fucking minutes. And it is a completely magical song. And after I wrote it, the gates just opened, and the songs kept coming. It was like an immaculate conception.”

The song, according to Vogue, is “an unbelievably great dance song, destined to be the anthem of every gay-pride event for the next 100 years.” (Listen to the track now at Lady Gaga's official website.)
