Lady Gaga stormed New York City’s Times Square to debut her new video for “Applause” on Good Morning America!
Dressed in a custom designed Mathieu Mirano x Lady Gaga warped white paper jacket, panty, bra and gloves, a shockingly not shocking Gaga explained the clown face artwork for the first new single from her upcoming album ARTPOP.
“When we were on set, we did a lot of different looks in the studio. But they’re each representative of different parts of me,” she said. “We put this clown on my face in an ode to the jester.”
“When I was performing on the set, I started to feel really emotional and sad because I hadn’t seen my fans in a really long time,” continued Gaga.
“I truly miss them, so I took my hand and I smudged the makeup down my face like tears. Not that I live for attention, but I live for making you happy. And that’s when the applause happens.”
And her overjoyed fans gave her lots of love and applause.
Lady Gaga also revealed that the “kind of music that I make is the kind that you look at.”
In that case, watch the video for “Applause”!
And if that isn’t enough visual manifestation of Gaga’s music, you can catch her again very soon. She announced on GMA that she will be opening the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25!
