    This is amazing, and how the hell is she trying to steal Kesha’s spotlight? This is pure amazing. I can’t wait to see the video and the performance on the mtv awards. This is another big hit!!

  2. Tony

    LMAO…At people saying that this is epic. Some of you are say this is better then #roar. OMG…LoL. After hearing this mess #katyperry for the WIN!!! #roar

    i dont like gaga personally but after hearing Roar and this, i’ll go with Applause. They both sound safe but this one is dance-able at least.

    Hmm..kinda boring? Hope this isnt what she means by ‘starting a new music revolution’? Because its kind of boring.

    MYGOD…. she is so desperate it is almost funny. First she leaks 10 seconds of her own song the same day ROAR leaks. And now, the day Katy releases her song, she releases Applause JUST BECAUSE she doesnt want anyone to leak it ? Jesus… And ppl refuse to say how FAKE this woman is. At least have the balls to admit it, Gaga.

    wasn’t immediately obsessed, but it’s really grown on me after a few listens. definitely a slow burner.

    undeniably better than KP’s “Roar”…

  7. George

    Way better than Katy Perry’s Roar. I like the fact that she chose a safe first single that can smash on radio. Born this way era is totally over.

  8. Jonathan

    horrid, i used to like Gaga til she got into this whole “art” business; trying to make statements all the damn time in everything she does. Its just annoying and cheapens her actual talent. Your a songstress stick to that.

    I love this song, it’s not overly aggressive and catchy that I can’t still enjoy listening to it a year later. And I think it was good of Katy’s and Gaga’s management to release their material so close to each other, it got people talking and fans of one side will be tuning in to hear what the fuss is about on the other and may even end up liking it. I direct you to the comments above as proof.


    what do you think that katy perry and lady gaga has their singles out the same day??? a big rumor bout katy perry is that they are join to a duet together… also go an search all the interactions that they has done on social media

    I really like it. I’m not sure how old many of you are, but this is very reminiscent of Grace Jones-era music. And the same comments that many of you are making about Gaga are what Jones had to hear. Look at her now. She’s regarded as an icon. Your hate is someone’s blessing.

  12. Alexis

    I don’t like this single, I prefer a million times “Burqa” over this song, because in my opinion it doesn’t sound like GaGa, it sounds as all the songs that is playing on the radio today, it sounds generic and not original

  13. Jonathan

    I have tried to give it another chance by re listening to this track several times. Sadly, she still sounds awful. I remember the good ol days when I showed all my friends “Just Dance” for the first time, how magical. Wish she would go back to what made her a star and not all this “look at me” gimmicks.

    Both Applause and Roar are really good songs. The hype and expectation especially for Applause was unrealistically high. People hyped it up so much that anything short of the song of the century was going to be a bust. Good to see Gaga going back to more of The Fame type sound, interested to see what ARTPOP will bring.
