The new single Lady Gaga got a worldwide release yesterday -- and I have to admit it's more addictive than crack.
First of all, she's definitely entering her Lene Lovich phase, both stylistically and aesthetically, and there's something odd about the song in that it's all synth but it's actually so propulsive that it somehow feels like a guitar-and-drums rock song.
Here it is -- Applause.
I'm at least somewhat back after a really difficult weekend funeral and a decision to take a bit of a mental health day with Inara yesterday. At some point I'll come back fully.
