LADY GAGA APPLAUSE

In the not too distant past, the release of a new Lady Gaga music video felt like an event – think of the now-iconic clips for “Paparazzi,” “Bad Romance,” “Telephone” (!) – what we have now is a pop star obsessed with numerous costume changes, expensive sets and famous directors. It’s not that compelling. But “Applause” is still a catchy dance cut with a huge chorus that ranks among Gaga‘s best, and we’re sort of excited for her upcoming album ARTPOP, if only for the sheer weird awesomeness of leaked demo “Burqa”? #mixedfeelings

ARTPOP is out November 11.
