Riff: Lady Gaga – “Applause”

Aug 12, 2013

Pop culture was in art, now art’s in pop culture in me!

from Applause lyrics by Lady Gaga

A pop music emergency,” from the bloated ego of the fading manipulator of earworm knobbery as she tricks the lifeblood of her success, lemmings – ahem, ‘monsters‘ – of the “the adrenaline of fame,” with one last tired mask – a Bowie-meets-Cher cocaine-synth of a notion that she’s actually relevant.
