A few weeks ago Lady Gaga released the cover art for her new single Applause, the first from her upcoming new album ARTPOP. Yesterday we got to see the lyric video for the song and today we get to see the official music video. There appears to be all sorts of “art” going on in this video … which, IMHO, looks like a whole lotta nothing really going on. The focus appears to be on the song itself, which is good actually, but overall, I can’t say that I’m crazy about this video. MTV announced today that Gaga will open the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards this coming weekend with a performance of this song but no word on whether or not she’ll appear on stage as a swan with a human head. Stay tuned. As for the video, what do y’all think? Is this a hit or a miss?
