Lady Gaga Calls Rebecca Black A Genius (VIDEO)

In an hour-long interview on Google Goes Gaga, the chart-topping singer sat down and fielded questions from the audience and from the host Marissa Mayer. Gaga took the time to answer questions submitted from around the world in an introspective and in-depth fashion.

When asked about meme-of-the-week Rebecca Black, the Fame Monster admitted that although she hasn't seen the 13-year-old singer's "Friday" video, she thinks Black is a genius for following her dreams. Gaga also discussed the upcoming single "Judas" from Born This Way. Gaga will make her directorial debut, helming the "Judas" video with longtime collaborator Laurieann Gibson.
