Lady Gaga released the music video to her latest single “Applause” this morning while on Good Morning America, following a live appearance from Mama Monster herself.
In the eye-catching clip, directed by fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh, Gaga pops out of a magician’s hat and pulls out some haute couture tricks — though the best look may be the bustier that looks like a pair of hands cupping her breasts. Of course, one can never go wrong with a giant mannequin’s leg-cornucopia.
Whether the video will warm the tepid response the single has received thus far will be seen as the Lady’s Monsters rally and refresh to break YouTube records.
Lady Gaga is set to perform “Applause” live for the first time at this Sunday’s VMAs on MTV. Watch her interview from GMA below where she chats about her broken hip and her new ARTPOP look:
