Lady Gaga, Super pop star and an icon makes a visit to GMA's ABC studio in New York City. She's back in action after undergoing hip replacement, dancing for the first time since her hip surgery in February.
In an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America” this morning, prior to the world premiere of her brand new music video, “Applause,” which debuted outside the “GMA” studios in Times Square.
The 'Mother Monster" told GMA anchors "I thought about nothing but my fans every minute since that tour ended,” Gaga told “It was intense, especially because I’m such an active person and I love performing so much. It was challenging to stop performing. That was the hardest part, not seeing the fans, not performing, not playing the music.”
"I’m not just a musician. I’m also a creative mind," the multi-platinum artist said. “It made it much more intense and amazing. Because I couldn’t do anything else but create. I couldn’t dance, I couldn’t walk, so I created. I wrote all my ideas down every day. I obsessed over it.” the performer continued to say.
“I actually rehearsed lying down a lot," she said. "I would play the song and I would do the choreography on my back and visualize the fans. I thought of them every second."
Gaga used the down time to focus on her creativity to channel into her new album, “Artpop,” which will be released on Nov. 11. “Applause” is already number 1 in dozens of countries worldwide.
"Seeing it in Times Square is a total dream come true,” said Gaga. "I really felt like I could be myself in this video."
"We put this clown makeup on my face and as an ode to the jester," she said. "As I was performing on the set, I started to feel really emotional and sad because I hadn't seen my fans for a long time. It’s very different performing for a camera than performing for 50,000 people. It feels different, and I truly miss them. So I took my hands and I smudged the makeup down my face like tears, and I began to cry while I was singing, singing, ‘I live for the applause.’
Gaga further explained that she doesn't live for the attention, she lives for the love she gets from her fans. That's what she means by 'applause'
Lady Gaga is scheduled to open for the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25. She will definitely hear that applause!
