Ultra pop star Lady Gaga has released a new single "Applause" as well as an accompanying lyric video, much to the scintillating excitement of Little Monsters world-wide. Gaga has been absent to the public eye since her hip injury earlier this year, and has made few public appearances since then.
The lyric video for the song, which Gaga premiered only days after filming it, features a drag show at Micky's in West Hollywood, funky makeup sure to be a trend among night clubbers, and sexually provocative dancing. Gaga is seated most of the video with drag queens providing most of the visual entertainment, but her voice, and the lyrics which accompany it, feed the energy of the video, and indicate a Gaga who is present, but waiting to make her re-emergence.
Shots of her taking pictures with fans is a fun homage to her love of them, and she deserves applause for returning from her hip injury with gusto, renewed energy, and sensation.
