Parts of Lady Gaga's upcoming single "Applause" have leaked Saturday afternoon and it's already causing an uproar on Twitter, but not in a good way. It has been described as reductive, juvenile, stupid, and disappointing. However, Lady Gaga's "Little Monsters" seem to be enjoying it.
The song certainly sounds a lot better than the Muslim-bating "Burqa." However, it's not saying much. The two clips released recall Madonna's most recent singles "Give Me All Your Luvin'" and "Girl Gone Wild." Even madonna fans will tell you that it's not necessarily a good thing. Still, it makes us want to hear the full song. In other words, it stands on top of a garbage can rather than in it.
This evening, Lady Gaga pretended to be upset on Twitter, although sources say the leak was a publicity stunt to try and take away the spotlight from Katy Perry. It wouldn't surprise us. Lady Gaga has been recently accused of faking hip surgery so she could cover up for poor ticket sales and posting naked videos of herself in order to deflect attention away from what many people feel is bad music.
