She explains the meaning behind her infamous awards show entrance.

Lady Gaga spent some quality time inside her Grammy egg.

"I was in there for about 72 hours. It was a very creative experience," the singer, who won three Grammy awards, said Tuesday on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show.

"It was time for me to really prepare and think about the meaning of the song and get prepared for the performance. I really wanted to be born on stage," she added. "The creative vessel was helpful for me to stay focused. We had it backstage so that I was able to really stay in this sort of creative, embryonic incubation.”

"This is what I do, Ryan. I'm so passionate about this record and the meaning of the album," she went on.

"When I create music, I see music as sort of a wall of sounds and colors. Every song sort of bears this hue and this color to it, and that's how I end up ultimately creating the performances," she said. "That was one of my most favorite things at the Grammys, the color palate of the stage. I just thought it was so beautiful and that's really how I see the song."

Although "Born This Way" is still going strong on iTunes, Gaga can't wait for her next songs off the album of the same name.

"The next single is called 'Judas' and that will be out a couple of weeks before the album. I did that record with RedOne, who is so amazing," she said.

Other songs include "Marry the Night," "Government Hooker" and her favorite, "Hair," which she explains is "a club record with this Bruce Springsteen vibe to it."
