Applause – Lady Gaga [music]
Lady Gaga has scrapped the Aug. 19 release for her “Applause” single, opting to premiere it Monday after “an abundance” of leaks arrived online. In a barrage of Twitter missives, she summoned her Little Monsters fan base to remedy this “pop music emergency.”
The audio leaks emerged over the weekend. Gaga, whose Twitter avatar remained an egg up until Monday’s changed plans, noticed the leaks on Saturday and exclaimed via a tweet, “Lord, in HEAVEN WHY.” Gaga also rallied fans on Facebook and LittleMonsters.com.
“Applause” is the first single from Gaga’s fourth studio album, ARTPOP, which is slated to come out Nov. 11. The album will come with an app-based multimedia experience.
