Lady Gaga is so excited about her new single, "Born This Way," that she not only tweeted out the single's full lyrics in January but Monday announced -- again via Twitter -- that she's moving up the release date two days and will -- OMG! -- release the song this Friday:

After Months and months of waiting and excitement, the week has finally came, 1 Week till 'Born This Way' BornThisWayFridayless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPad

Thousands of her fans -- aka monsters -- immediately took to social networking sites to blather about the release and, along with their demigod, slag Britney Spears. Gaga, ever a setter of good examples, tweeted about some abuse from Britney Spears fans, replacing the "B" in Britney's first name with "Sh." Spears released her own new single, "Hold It Against Me," in early January.

According to one of "Born This Way's" producers, DJ White Shadow, the song is "much more complex" than previous Gaga hit "The Fame." And "The Fame," it should be noted, is way more complex than the "Jeopardy" theme song.

You mean to tell us that Lady Gaga was born the way she looks in the picture?

No wonder she's Gaga.

Britney is no match for Lady Gaga. She would eat her for lunch.

Not a fan, but clearly she's at the top of her game. Not bad looking either.
