Lady Gaga released the music video to her latest single "Applause" on Monday morning. The video made its debut on "Good Morning America" after a live appearance from Lady Gaga. The pop star sat down with the hosts of "GMA" to discuss her hip injury, her new music video, and her new look.
The visuals to "Applause" show Gaga in various levels of dress, from a full black hooded bodysuit, to almost entirely naked, with just seashells or a set of hands covering her breasts. While parts of the video are shot in stark black-and-white, others are done in striking color with Gaga sporting dramatic makeup and get-ups. Watch the music video for "Applause" above.
Originally hyped to hit airwaves on August 19, "Applause" saw a rushed release last week after the single was leaked. Lady Gaga took to Twitter last Monday to announce that "due to hackers" and "an abundance of low/high quality leaks" the single would make its debut early.
Lady Gaga is set to perform "Applause" live for the first time at this Sunday's Video Music Awards on MTV. Other artists scheduled to perform at the upcoming awards show include Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, and Kanye West.
"Applause" is the first single off of Gaga's upcoming album "ARTPOP." Due out on November 11, "ARTPOP" will serve as a follow-up to Gaga's sophomore album "Born This Way," released in 2011.
