International pop superstar Lady Gaga will be Global Guest Editor-in-Chief for all May 17 editions of Metro ahead of her highly anticipated Born This Way worldwide album release May 23.


In her role as Global Guest Editor-in-Chief, Lady Gaga will highlight issues surrounding equality and individuality, select stories and provide her comments on the breaking news of the day.


Lady Gaga will edit Metro’s editions in 20 countries from the London office of Metro World News, Metro’s central news desk.


As part of the Global Guest Editorship, Metro will also run a competition where one lucky reader — from one Metro country — will be chosen to serve as Lady Gaga’s editorial assistant in London.


The contest is open to Metro readers and Gaga fans around the world, and will challenge entrants to share what makes them Born This Way, and to identify what issues of equality affect them.

“Let’s see how fans would define what Born This Way is for them,” Lady Gaga said. “I say I was born to be brave.

“That’s part of my mission in life. I was born to follow my artistic visions. Look into yourself. Are you born to be brave?”
