On Friday evening, Lady Gaga released the single cover for her new song "Do What U Want," which has been widely ridiculed for sounding like a Christina Aguilera leftover. Perhaps to deflect attention away from the bad song, the cover features a picture of the former megastar in a thong. Gaga's butt does look nice, but it is obviously enhanced a lot with the use of Photoshop.
Lady Gaga recently said that her ARTPOP album was the best album of the millennium. Unfortunately, the general public doesn't seem to think so. While "Applause" was a minor hit in the United States thanks to alleged radio station payola, her latest has caused a Twitter backlash. Another song "Aura," which was released to help promote Machete Kills (Gaga's first movie flop), has been accused of exploiting Muslims.
Lady Gaga's ARTPOP will be released on November 11. On October 24, Mother Monster is having a private listening party for the album in Berlin. It is believed that only critics who usually give Gaga positive reviews will be there in order to spread positive buzz about the album.
