Lady GaGa

Lady GaGa is back with a new single "Perfect Illusion". The track debuted at No. 1 on iTunes chart, No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on the Digital Songs chart with 100,000 downloads. She released a music video for the single after the premiere of "Scream Queens" season 2.

Directed by Ruth Hogben and Andrea Gelardin, the music video shows GaGa dancing crazily with the song's co-producers Mark Ronson, Tame Impala's Kevin Parker and BloodPop.



GaGa will release her fifth studio album "Joanne", which is named after her late aunt, on October 21. The standard album spawns 11 tracks including "Diamond Heart", "A-YO", "Joanne", "John Wayne", "Dancin' in Circles", "Perfect Illusion", "Million Reasons", "Sinner's Prayer", "Come to Mama", "Hey Girl" featuring Florence Welch and "Angel Down". Meanwhile, "Grigio Girls", "Just Another Day" and "Angel Down (Work Tape)" are only available on the deluxe edition.

In support of her fifth album, the Mother Monster will embark on tour. "Nothing is going to be particularly stripped down. This is not me being like, 'Oh, this is the real me, surprise!' This is just where I am in my life right now, how I feel right now. I always change," the "Poker Face" hitmaker said of her upcoming tour, "Whenever I make a new record, it always teaches me something. And these shows will be whatever feels right."

She added, "The music is going to dictate the show. The music is really fun, but it's dynamic and I feel the show is going to be that way. It's going to make you laugh, and cry, and dance, and jump, and scream. And I miss my fans so much and I certainly want to give them what they want. And I think I know what they want. I think I do."

GaGa has been rumored to headline the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show held at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on February 5, 2017. An NFL rep, however, says they have not yet made a final decision on who would headline next year's Super Bowl.
