EXCLUSIVE CELEBRITY INTERVIEWS
What do you think of the video?!
via eonline.com With a title like "Applause," Lady Gaga's new single has clear designs on becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But a ubiquitous promotional blitz, along with a healthy dash of controversy, sure helps its chances: The full lyric video for "Applause"—the first track off her forthcoming albumARTPOP—has now hit the Web. And, judging by its party-hearty vibe, Mother Monster never turns down a chance for a randy romp with drag queens and fierce catwalk stompers.
In the clip, the 27-year-old Gaga rocks the smeared Technicolor makeup she showcased on the album's cover art, moseying through a club as drag queens prance, twirl and sashay all around her.
She later heads backstage to pose with the performers before ducking out of the club amid a throng of onlookers and flashbulb-popping paparazzi.
The video was shot Monday night at popular West Hollywood gay club Micky's, although Mother Monster kept everything a surprise until the very last minute. Shortly after 10 p.m., she tweeted: "I will definitely NOT be at Mickys tonight, and I will definitely NOT expect you there to be in my lyric video."
