The Manifesto of Mother Monster is a speech by Lady Gaga during the music video for "Born This Way". During the reading in the music video, the backtrack played is from Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film, Vertigo. The song itself is composed by Bernard Herrmann.
The Manifesto was reused during The Born This Way Ball Tour, where a giant animatronic recreation of Lady Gaga's face in a diamond shaped prism spoke it as an interlude between the performances of "Bloody Mary" and "Bad Romance."
This is the manifesto of Mother Monster:
On G.O.A.T, a Government Owned Alien Territory in space, a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place. But the birth was not finite; it was infinite. As the wombs numbered, and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal; it is eternal. And thus began the beginning of the new race: a race within the race of humanity, a race which bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom. But on that same day, as the eternal mother hovered in the multiverse, another more terrifying birth took place: the birth of evil. And as she herself split into two, rotating in agony between two ultimate forces, the pendulum of choice began its dance. It seems easy, you imagine, to gravitate instantly and unwaveringly towards good. But she wondered, “How can I protect something so perfect without evil?”
