ladygagaapplauseThis morning I got a press release about Lady Gaga’s new single from “Artpop” dropping soon and it’s called “Applause”.

No, this isn’t breaking news or anything, but what I found most interesting is the new bio that was written for her which pretty much sums up her work over the past five years. Yes, five years, it’s quite a good read. It’s so hard to believe how massive Lady Gaga has become in five years. And even more importantly, all the hard work Team Lady Gaga and her fans have put in to help catapult her to where she is now.

OH, and “Applause” is supposedly available for pre-order in a few weeks time on August 19th, but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if a few little monsters leaked it beforehand. Lady Gaga is set to perform “Applause” for the first time at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on August 25th and yes, the world will be watching to see what the icon of all icons (hehehe) will be doing next…


LADY GAGA came to prominence following the release of her debut studio album The Fame (2008), which sold over 15 million copies worldwide. Her contributions to the music industry have garnered her numerous achievements including five Grammy Awards amongst fifteen nominations, a record setting thirteen MTV Video Music Awards of twenty-six nominations and the estimated sale of 24 million albums and 90 million singles worldwide. She has travelled the world on numerous tours including 2008’s The Fame Ball, 2009-2011’s The Monster Ball and 2012-2013’s Born This Way Ball. An HBO television special titled Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden earned an Emmy Award amongst its five nominations. Her third studio album, Born This Way, broke the iTunes record for the fastest rise to the # 1 on release day. In 2013, Time Magazine named her the second most influential person of the decade. With over 2.2 billion combined views of all her videos online, Lady Gaga is one of the biggest living people in social media with over 5 million likes on Facebook and over 39 million followers on Twitter. She is also a global activist and philanthropist, having been an outspoken supporter of many important issues including LGBT rights, HIV/AIDS awareness, body image issues, and youth empowerment. In 2011, she launched her own Born This Way Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to empowering youth and creating a kinder and braver world. She also recently built & launched a social network just for her fans, Lady Gaga is the only artist in the digital era to top the 5 million sales mark with her first two hits.
