Lady Gaga graces the cover of V Magazine's Asian issue, which is the first print edition containing her new column.

The Grammy winner chats with Elton John about all things pop culture, including her upcoming album.  "Born This Way was a triumph as a pop song and a social statement, but it ultimately revealed another division: the reality that the young generations’ challenges with equality and social justice are just as prevalent now as they were twenty-five years ago," Gaga says.

So how much love does Gaga have for her army of fans?  "The monsters are my medicine," she tells the mag. "They heal me, physically and emotionally, every night at the show.  I feel God through their love. I worship little monsters.  They're my religion. Without them, I don't exist."
