So this is what a “pop emergency” looks like.
Lady Gaga has retracted her claws for one day to official release her first single since she went into hibernation. Though the song has been released almost a week before it’s official release date, fans of Mother Monster should thank those leakers for the rescheduling of the premiere.
Last week, took to the offense when she found out that someone or someones rather, had gotten a hold of a demo version of her new single “Applause” and had released it to the internet claiming that it was the album version of the song. When Gaga found out what had happen she was less than pleased with the outcome, even pleading with her Little Monsters to not listen to that version of the song and help her catch the culprits.
This weekend, we saw the pop star come to the defense of one of her fellow peers, Katy Perry when her new single “Roar” got the leaking treatment as well. Gaga tweeted Perry, “Wanna grab some shovels and fuck up some hackers? @katyperry excited to hear your ROAR, sorry to hear about your truck!”
For now, you can listen to Lady Gaga’s “Applause” here, just try to avoid all the iHeartRadio promotions that tend to happen every ten seconds.
Lady Gaga will be making her official return to the stage at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards where she will be performing “Applause.”
