Lady Gaga hopes to make up for some fans' disappointment in her highly-anticipated single "Born This Way" by creating two separate videos for the song.
The superstar released the lead track off her upcoming album of the same name to much fanfare earlier this month, but immediately came under fire from some fans and critics who claimed it was a rip-off of Madonna's "Express Yourself" hit.
She insisted she had Madonna's "complete support" for her track, and the star proved her popularity when Born This Way shot straight to the top of America's Billboard Hot 100. And Gaga has announced fans will be given an extra promo which will be a "stripped down" version of the song – with part of the profits of sales on iTunes going to charity.
She tells Gayle King, "I do have some exciting news about the new single. I've been so excited about (the) reaction and seeing the fans be so excited during the show every time we play "Born This Way," it's been really amazing. I've made two music videos for the song.
"So there's one that's coming out on Monday. But then I'm actually putting together another video, which is a more stripped-down version of the song that will be released on iTunes and also released as an audio file. A portion of the money raised selling the song is actually going to go towards an anti-bully charity."
