Lady Gaga Applause

Lady GaGa has released a music video for her single, “Applause”, from the album ARTPOP, with outfits including a clam bikini inspired by Botticelli’s Birth of Venus painting, mattress scenes inspired by her time as a young adult living on the Lower East Side, a “glove-kini” designed by Brandon Maxwell, and an appearance as a black swan birthed from a fur egg. The song was written in 2012 when the singer struggled with pain from an undiagnosed hip condition, sustained by the applause of her fans.
