Lady Gaga appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno Monday night to discuss her Grammy egg and the controversy surrounding "Born This Way's" similarity to Madonna's "Express Yourself."

Gaga -- who donned a see-through dress over black underwear and a bra -- filled her three Grammys with M&Ms in honor of Valentine's Day and put them on Leno's desk during the interview.

How did she celebrate the wins?

"I don't remember very much. I know it was fun. I do remember being called drunk-y Gaga at one point," she joked.

She made sure to clarify that her Grammy egg -- which she hatched from during her performance -- was a "vessel," not an egg.

"I was in it for three days," she says. "It was temperature controlled."

Gaga designed the latex outfits she and her dancers wore during the performance.

"Two days before the performances, I changed everything. I felt so bad because Haus of Gaga was red eyed and up all night," she said. "They looked like dancers in the outfits. I'm so close to all of them…sometimes I don't want the band and the dancers to look like the band and dancers behind me. It's really a performance, and 'Born This Way' is nothing without all of them."

The rubber dress with exaggerated butt and breasts she wore to accept her Grammys was designed by Thierry Mugler and "was inspired by humanoids…alien sex humanoid hybrid woman," Gaga said.

(She sat in front of Will Smith and his 10-year-old daughter, Willow, at the show: "I told Willow she inspired me to whip my hair back and forth on stage.")

Gaga also revealed that she wrote the lyrics and melody to "Born This Way" very quickly, but spent a year revising the beat and sound.

As for that song's comparisons to Madonna, she defended herself, "There is no one that is more adoring and a loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally."

"The good news is that I got an email from her people and her sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single," Gaga continued. "If the queen says it, it shall be."
