Check out "Applause"...
Billboard reports that Lady Gaga has released the music video for her latest single "Applause" during an appearance on Good Morning America. The appearance was meant to be the debut of the song and video, but leaks forced her to release the song a week prior to the appearance.
The video features Gaga in a birdcage, with a tail, catching knives in a cauldron, wearing a "bone blouse" and dancing in only a black-glove bra. The video is mostly black and white with some bits of color here and there. At several points Gaga is shown with makeup streaming down her face. When she sings the line "Suddenly the Koons is me", she is turned into a black swan/human hybrid.
On GMA, she said: "I'm happy it's in the world." She will open the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday with the song at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The single was released on August 13 and is expected to sell between 200,000 and 225,000 in its first week. It's the first single from ARTPOP, which will be released on November 11.
She also talked about her hip injury, which caused her to cancel the remaining 22 shows of her Born This Way Ball tour, noting the following…
"I couldn't do anything else, but create. I couldn't dance. I couldn't walk. I couldn't anything. I sat on the couch and I worked every day and I wrote all my ideas down and I obsessed, obsessed about the music."
