NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The first single off the album of Manhattan-born artist Lady Gaga hit the airwaves Friday ahead of her 60 Minutes interview set to air on CBS this Sunday.

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, released the title track “Born This Way,” which immediately drew comparisons to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”

Gaga taped a 60 Minutes profile with Anderson Cooper while on tour in London, Milan and New York. In the interview, which can be seen at 7 p.m. ET Sunday on CBS 2, the Grammy award winner said she was well aware that the more famous she gets, the bigger target she becomes.

“They want to see me fail. They want to see me fall on stage. They want to see me vomiting out of a nightclub. Isn’t that the age we live in?” Gaga mused.

Gaga, who attended Convent of the Sacred Heart on the Upper East Side, also joked with Cooper when asked how she prefers to be addressed.

Cooper: “What should I call you? Do I call you Lady? Do I call you Gaga, Lady Gaga?”

Lady Gaga: “Call me Gaga.”

Cooper: “Does anyone call you Stefani?”

Lady Gaga: “Yes some people do – especially in bed.”

Gaga is nominated for six awards at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards, including album of the year.  The Grammy Awards can be seen at 8 p.m. ET this Sunday on CBS 2.
