Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter was interviewed at the Music Matters Conference in Singapore, where he talked about the contrversy the Born This Way Ball created in Asia, Lady Gaga’s career development and more.
When he was asked to talk about the protests held in Jakarta, Indonesia, he said this:
It’s less about Gaga than it really is what’s happening in the world right now as a whole, this is a microcosm. It’s a generational divide. Jesus Christ got crucified. It happens.
However, he expressed how the singer’s team had enjoyed everything about their trip to Asia this spring.
Asia is a very loyal audience and an audience that really, really loves music….it’s not a passive audience at all…we plan on spending a lot more time here.
No details about Lady Gaga’s next album were revealed, but he talked about her record deal:
We have I think three records left with Universal [Interscope]. There may be a [record label] system there by the time her deal’s up that looks more attractive.
He also mentioned Gaga hasn’t made it yet, and called her a ”200-lb toddler.” He also talked about The Born This Way Ball.
It’s gonna be an additional year before that tour is over. It’s a long album cycle but it’s part of the storytelling.
