Lady Gaga Drags Fans to Lyric Video: Watch
Lady Gaga will debut what she describes as a "very pop music video" for her new single "Applause" on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday morning (Aug. 19). To tide fans over, the pop singer has just delivered the dance track's lyric video, which was shot earlier this week.
The lyric clip captures a drag-tastic scene at West Hollywood nightclub Micky's, where Gaga and the song's lyrics share screen time with giddy fans watching various performers, including one dressed like Peter Pan.
A makeup-smattered Gag appears throughout the clip, with several frames showing her posing for pictures with her Monsters.
Gaga teased the event in a series of tweets on Tuesday, Aug. 13:
I will definitely NOT be at Mickys tonight, and I will definitely NOT expect you there to be in my lyric video. #APPLAUSE— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 13, 2013
IM SERIOUS LA MONSTERS, ITS NOT LIKE I WILL BE HOPING YOU ARE THERE WITH YOUR APPLAUSE MAKEUP READY TO DANCE FOR ME AND WATCH DRAG— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 13, 2013
Since its release on Monday, Gaga's "Applause" has stormed the Dance/Electronic Songs chart at No. 16 and will debut on the Hot 100 next week. "Applause" previews Gaga's "ARTPOP," due Nov. 11.
