« Bad Romance » is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga from her third extended play The Fame Monster (2009). A collaborative effort between Gaga andRedOne, the lyrics of « Bad Romance » subsumes Gaga’s fear of derisive relationships and the paranoia that she endures in her relationship with fame.

Musically, « Bad Romance » features a spoken bridge, a full-throated chorus and sung lyrics about being in love with one’s best friend. The song, which is imbued with elements of German-esque house andtechno, as well music from 1980s and the 1990s, was touted by Gaga as an experimental pop record.
