Lady Gaga takes over Twitter by releasing new single, 'Applause'
It's apparently news that Lady Gaga has a new single out, because the Twitter was all about it on Monday afternoon. That nude performance art she was doing last week turned out to be a really good lead-in for this one.
After audio of her first single Applause was ending up all over the Internets, Gaga apparently decided to beat the pirates at their own game and release the first single from ARTPOP on her own a week early. Or maybe it was to strike back against Katy Perry, whose new single Roar crashed Last.fm over the weekend.

Besides showing up on I Heart Radio, she also sent out the single art and a half-naked photo of herself for good measure. Is the song any good? Listen to it below and let us know.
