STORY OF SONG

Bisexuality is the main idea behind this song the song’s lyrics feature various sexual innuendos! It was a tribute by Gaga to her rock and roll boyfriends. During a birthday concert at Palm Springs Convention Center, Gaga talked about the meaning behind this song to an enthusiastic crowd mostly made up of gay men, she suggested that it is about her personal experience with bisexuality and about being with a man but fantasizing about a woman; hence, the man must read her “Poker Face” to understand what is going through her mind. In an interview with the Daily Star, Gaga said: “It’s about a lot of different things. I gamble but I’ve also dated a lot of guys who are really into sex and booze and gambling, so I wanted to write a record my boyfriends would like too.” In another interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Gaga was asked about the meaning of the line “bluffin’ with my muffin”, she explained: “Obviously, it’s my pussy’s poker face! I took that line from another song I wrote but never released, called ‘Blueberry Kisses.’ It was about a girl singing to her boyfriend about how she wants him to go down on her, and I used the lyric. {singing} ‘Blueberry kisses, the muffin man misses them kisses’.” Gaga went on explaining more about ‘Poker face’ to Fashionista101, she explained that the song is about her playing with guys as if she was a poker player. She said: “The song speaks in reference to the poker game, ‘Texas Hold Em.’ So I said, ‘I wanna hold him like they do in Texas, please.’ So its basically saying like, I wanna hold that guy – I wanna be close to him.” Producer RedOne wrote this song with Gaga, In an interview with Billboard Magazine, the Moroccan helmsman said that him and Gaga clicked as soon as they started working together, he said: “It happens so quick, we know each other, we’re good musically. We’re not over thinking. We just do what we feel right. Before you know it the song is pretty much done. I’m not saying that is the way it should be, but in this case that’s what happened, we wrote ‘Just Dance’ in one hour. Done. ‘Poker Face’? One hour. It just happened. Magic.”
