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.

Once again Lady Gaga rocks it!  AWESOME!  Those that criticize don't appreciate her for the artist she is!  If I had the voice, the body and the gimmick, I'd be laughing my way to the bank too! :-)

Wow. Always impressed by her. She isn't supposed to be dancing at all but she does it anyway. She is a real artist who wants to perform her best even with risk. She is very remarkable.

More bitching from the peanut gallery.  Don't like it, don't listen to it.  End of story.  Never seen anyone get so much hate, she is definitely doing something right.  To elicit such disgust and loathing for basically playing dress up and singing pop songs, the comments are hilarious!!!

Done so much better by those that came before her.  Just recycled BS from a semi talented hack.

What's edgy about it?  She can sing, but she ain't pretty which is why she has all the gimmicky crap covering for her looks.  News flash Gaga, plastic surgery can fix that nose and enhance those boobs.  Go drop some cash and start making videos and wearing outfits we can all get into.

I was never a lady gaga fan, but to be honest that wasnt half bad. Yeah its out there, but why would anyone expect anything short of that?

I just watched her video.  She is one very strange person.  Her brain must be totally fried.

Wow. She's just not that good.

I agree with Camp james.

Dale Bozzio was doing this in the 80's

and much much better.
