Lady Gaga is on her way back. Tonight she revealed the name of the first single from her ARTPop album. It’s called “Applause” and she says in Women’s Wear Daily that it’s all about how she craves the applause of her audience. I hope there’s better material than that coming because we know this about Ms. Germanotta all too well by now. She also released the art work for the single “cover.” It’s already being compared to artwork from the Madonna tour “The Girlie Show.” Again, I really hope “ARTPop” gets away from the Madonna issue. Lady Gaga turned up on Saturday night in the Hamptons at the Watermill show. She’s creeping back into public. In November comes ARTPop. In January, Tony Bennett will release his album of jazz duets with Gaga.
