Katy Perry wasn't the only pop diva to officially release a comeback single today: Lady Gaga's "Applause" from her next album ARTPOP was released a week early due to "hackers". At least, that's what Gaga said in a tweet earlier this morning:
DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS...WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY...MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD
- Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 12, 2013
After a few listens, we have to say that this is classic Mother Monster at her finest. Putting on her best David Bowie inspired vocals, the pop star belts out I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause / Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me and we know she means it. Listen to the new track below:
