On Saturday, Lady Gaga walked out wearing a plastic outfit and mask. It's the latest bizarre move for the singer, who has gone from bizarre to downright desperate. But most people on Twitter agree that this is the best look Lady Gaga has worn in a while.
Meanwhile, there is finally some pretty good news for Gaga. In the United States, "Applause" might not be the hit she thought it would be, but it certainly isn't the flop that her detractors declared it to be. The song has made some decent gains on iTunes and after almost flatlining at pop radio last week, it appears to be suddenly gaining some steam. Is this because of payola? Anything is possible! It is also possible that people are just enjoying the song more.
"Applause" is definitely a grower. Had it been released by Gaga three years ago, it would have definitely been a number one song. However, Gaga's public image is at an all-time low now that the public is catching on to her attention-seeking gimmicks. She would have a bigger hit if she didn't hype the song up so much to the point of desperation. It's sad to see who was once such a fun pop star sink to the depths of desperation. Perhaps the music will save her.
