If Lady Gaga lives for the applause, then someone get her to an emergency room, STAT. “Applause” her latest single off of the upcoming ARTPOP, is flopping harder than a fish out of water and I don’t think her twitter fight with Perez Hilton is going to help. But will the video? Perhaps. Before the (non lyric) video hit, “Applause” dropped from an already dismal #4, to #6, to #freaking8, but as of this afternoon, she’s at #5.
The music video for “Applause” premiered this morning on Good Morning America and the big beautiful internet. At this point, I think so many people are going to automatically hate anything Gaga does, and I understand why they might. She’s been kind of insufferable lately. But guys, I don’t hate this video. There’s a lot going on and I wish she would refrain from throwing every single idea she has into one video, but I like the visuals, there’s no long intro, and she looks great.
What do you think of the video? More stills below.
