The sheer audacity of her to throw the elements she did into the mix (stadium rock, house, techno, EDM, opera, heavy metal etc etc etc) and it work so beautifully is nothing short of miraculous. The ambition and sheer attitude is dripping from every inch of it. It’s testament to how genius she truly is - and how yearning I am for her to completely skull drag me to oblivion once again. Seeing that fire in her eyes again today has been worth every second of this past decade. I know she has it in her to completely mutilate us again. Be (un)merciful mum.

The way she nails the Marry The Night choreography and hits every damn note at the same time in those performances.

I remember being SO impressed at the time because her voice was getting stronger and stronger. The way she was able to nail all of those E5s while dancing when she could barely hit that note at all a few years prior....growth!
 
It's making me so happy and emotional seeing how happy she is. This is such a great fan moment to see such a monumental album celebrated the way it deserves to be.

Since everyone else is posting their relationship with this album....this came out when I was a closeted 19 year old trying as hard as I could to fit in with the straights. I hadn't even actually accepted my sexuality yet, and tried to pretend it wasn't there .....but this album, and following everything she was doing that era, felt like such a safe space. It was was place I could privately turn to, enjoy immensely, and feel more comfortable with myself in. The message of this album truly did help me on my journey of growth and self discovery, it was something I needed to hear in that moment and helped make me less afraid to be who I am. It makes me so happy to see it celebrated and relived 10 years later, where I can fully enjoy it without shame. The cultural impact it has had continues to live on and it makes me such a proud fan.

She's so hilarious for calling this "Born This Way" performance TEAL AMBITION. Her Taratata appearance was amazing in general. The way she tied herself to the Eiffel Tower for "Hair"? Ugh.


I still have... mixed feelings over Born This Way (the song) to this day but there's really no denying that she performed the hell out of it at every opportunity. The Grammys performance in particular is such a moment
 
I don’t have much to say nostalgically towards BTW because when it came out I was being a coward towards my sexuality and hid away mostly from something that was telling me the opposite of what I was trying to believe, but I will say, about a month before my first sexual experience with a man and leaving my old church, I cried on the walk home from a friend’s because of her performance of Born This Way at The Super Bowl and I truly thought that if I didn’t leave soon, I was going to end up killing myself. The album is a triumph and a behemoth and I love her.
 
I don't have an emotional attachment to the album, but I appreciate what she was doing with it and I'm glad it was a source of comfort the people who needed that.
