Lady Gaga's 'Applause' single leaks: Singer lashes out on Twitter
Lady Gaga's new single "Applause" leaked over the weekend, and the pop singer is not happy about it. At least she has a fervent fanbase on her side.
"Applause" was due to go wide next Monday, Aug. 19, but arrive early on Saturday. Gaga went on a short tear on Twitter Saturday night through Sunday morning, taking aim at the leak and supposedly negative reaction from some "bloggers."
"Dont focus on ANY blogger criticism. I have been a producer/songwriter/musician for over 10 years. Trust the artist bloggers are not critics," she Tweeted.
Mixed in with her reaction was a call to arms for her Little Monsters to report illegal posts and streams of the song. At press time, 2,500 fans had retweeted Mother Monster's link to Universal Music Group's Piracy Referral Form, which serves to help take down leaked music.
She also referenced some fans and journalist's comparisons to Katy Perry, who is releasing her new album "Prism" only a couple of weeks before Gaga drops her much-anticipated "ARTPOP." She sent out a Tweet of support to Perry, whose gold-painted promotional "Prism" semi-truck was hit by a drunk driver on Friday afternoon [TMZ].
