Video: Lady Gaga – ‘Applause’

Lady Gaga

Put your hands up. Lady Gaga sets off an explosion of fashion and art with her provocative video for “Applause.” The pop provocateur goes nearly nude and models high-fashion looks in the clip, directed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

She struts down a runway in black, rolls on the floor with only seashells covering her up, and transforms into a black swan. She wears her sad clown makeup from the single cover, while purple glitter shoots across the stage during the grand finale.

The dance record, co-produced by DJ White Shadow, is the first single off her upcoming album ARTPOP, due November 11.

Watch Mother Monster unveil her latest masterpiece below.

    @Joe, Nothing from this Applause era has been cohesive. She has the cool clown makeup on in the single artwork but where is that in the video (consistently). Then she shows up to Good Morning America in a very tamed outfit succeeding the release of some very stripped down images of her. Come ON Gaga! I wasn’t feeling the video at all, and I understood what she was trying to do but it was just so gaudy. Come at me if you want to, I’ll drag anybody that wants it.

    @TrickDaddy/D-Train, Yeah I completely agree. The video is the coolest thing about it. I couldn’t even make out what the chorus was under that blanket of electropop.

    @Go Home, what racist drivel. It’s 2013. I’m black and I listen to Gaga. I loved her last album. This is not my favorite song from her and I can understand why some people don’t like her or her music, but speak for yourself.

    @Go Home, you are the reason why people think black people are ignorant. Instead if formulating an intelligent response like a respectable person u just start cussing someone out…so ignorant. Shame on you

    This has been a great year for music. Especially for Hip Hop. So many great albums and singles to listen to. But I think this one I’ll pass on. I don’t support Gimmick product. Hopefully JT 20/20 Experience part two is dope as well.

    Very impressed with her comeback. It looks like she actually put in some work while she was away and brought back something original and MUCH better than her last few. Round of Applause!

  19. LOLatHaters

    The video made me like the song slightly better (still think its an album filler song). I am tired of her and trying to out-do her weirdness. We have seen her nearly naked and naked a billion times now. She need a sleek clean video ASAP.

    Every Artist is going to have to step it up right about now, cause Gaga is coming strong so far. I’m not going to buy the single or anything like that, but I will always give credit whens it due.
