LADY GAGA unleashed her video for "Applause" yesterday . . . and not surprisingly, it's SUPER WEIRD. It's basically just a ton of images of Lady Gaga, in all kinds of crazy forms and settings. She wears a tight black scarf on her head . . . she gyrates on a mattress . . . she sings while inside a giant top hat . . . she wears a yellow wig with a dirty look while dancing inside a cage . . .
She sings while covered in messy face-paint . . . she wears some sort of wing contraption . . . there's an image of her with a tail . . . she wears a bra shaped like a pair of breast-covering hands . . . There's a swan with Lady Gaga's HEAD superimposed on it . . . and on and on.
The "L.A. Times" described it like this, quote, "It's basically like 20 different 'Vogue' shoots documented and spliced."
