AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa's fans wouldn't have to wait too long for her new music. A little over a month after a snippet of the lead single from her sixth studio album was leaked, the "Bad Romance" hitmaker took to her Instagram to announce that her long-awaited single "Stupid Love" will be made available for listening within days.
Through a post she made on Tuesday, February 26, the 33-year-old singer spilled that her lead single is set to drop two days later on Friday, February 28. " 'STUPID LOVE' THE NEW SINGLE BY LADY GAGA OUT FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT ET," she wrote alongside a "LG6" hashtag and a photo of its promotional billboard that features sparkling pink lips.
The release date announcement has driven many crazy with anticipation. Nicola Formichetti, a fashion and artistic editor who often collaborated with the "A Star is Born" actress, responded by writing, "Ok let's go." Hairstylist Fredric Aspiras declared, "LET'S GET STUPIDDD!!!!!!" YouTuber Jessie Paege exclaimed, "THE QUEEN IS BACK." Another YouTube star Tyler Oakley gushed, "WE ARE READY." MTV's official account also shared the excitement, "OH YES YES YES YES."
A preview of "Stupid Song" has made its way online in late January. This leak version was said to deliver a vibe similar to GaGa's 2011 "Born This Way" album. It includes lyrics that read, "You're the one that I've been waiting for/ Gotta quit this crying/ Nobody's gonna heal me if I don't open the door/ Kinda hard to believe (Gotta have faith in me)."
One fan who had caught the leak version raved, "Lady Gaga serving gay bop, heavenly vocals, born this way nostalgia, disco pop, 80s synths in one song... yeah everyone freaked out, everybody got down, everybody wants STUPID LOVE." Another gushed, "I'm not embarrassed to say I was excited when I heard Lady GaGa was releasing a new song. But after my son played Stupid Love I dropped my lasagna in amazement!"
GaGa herself has poked fun at the leak. Taking to Twitter to address the issue, the "Shallow" songstress posted a popular meme of a girl wearing a ski mask while listening to music with a note that read, "Can y'all stop."
