Round Of 'Applause' For Lady Gaga's new video
The Queen Monster unveils the visuals for her latest single

With the MTV VMA's being merely days away, Lady Gaga is pulling out all of the stops in her promotional vehicle prior to her VMA performance in Brooklyn this coming weekend. Today, Lady Gaga unveiled her video for "Applause" on "Good Morning America" and amidst everyone else in New York City's Times Square.
The video is artsy, a stark contrast to the strong pop undertones of the single it's attached to. Gaga shows up with her head on a black swan, becomes a "Botticelli chick" (like in the film "Clueless"), has a tail, and makes a series of her typical theatrical gestures as she delivers what seems to be exactly what she set out to achieve with her "ARTPOP" movement (heavy on the "art" part though).
While "Good Morning America" was the outlet to debut the "Applause" video, Times Square passers by had the added treat of watching the video on giant screens merely blocks from NYC's famed theater district - a likely transition for Gaga in years to come.
If the "Applause" video is any inkling of what's to come from her VMA performance, then the city of Brooklyn will be in for quite the dramatics come Sunday (August 25th). Check out Lady Gaga's latest artistic endeavor below.
Wow. She's just not that good.
I agree with Camp james.
Dale Bozzio was doing this in the 80's
