Listen to Lady Gaga on iHeartRadio

Following the week-early Monday leak of her brand new song, "Applause," Lady Gaga has released the lyric video for the hot new track. The video features a drag show at a crowded club, where Mother Monster herself is in attendance rocking the colorful make-up she dons in the song's cover art. Recognize the performers? It's because they are alum from "RuPaul's Drag Race" alums - and it all went down at Micky's in West Hollywood Monday.

Afterwards, Gaga tweeted:

And for those who had trouble deciphering Gaga's lyrics, they are displayed on screen for all the Little Monsters to memorize promptly. Oh, and for all of you that thought you heard something inappropriate in the lyrics on first listen - take note, she does, in fact, say "Koons," referring to the American artist, as she tweeted Monday.
