Mother Monster is back, y’all.
Just in time for Mardi Gras this weekend, Lady Gaga has stomped back into our lives with bravado, with a brand new single release in ‘Stupid Love’. The tune sees Gaga returning to the club-ready dance-pop realm that has defined the earlier part of her career, and the internet is frothing it.

‘Stupid Love’ is the first single taken from Lady Gaga’s highly anticipated sixth studio album. The music video, shot entirely on an iPhone 11, sees two huge brands coming together in breaking open Gaga’s newest chapter.
The video dives deep into a camp, colourful narrative wherein Gaga is a type of alien leader, flanked by dancers as she asserts her dominance. Check it out below.

Speaking with Zane Lowe about the new single, Gaga expressed her disappointment that the official release was marred by the leak of a previous version of the song.
“There were so many different iterations of these songs because we all wanted it to be perfect and literally nobody cared who put their fingerprints on it,” she said.
“As long as it was the dopest thing that we could give to the world and that it was meaningful, authentic, and completely me,” said Gaga.
The album is definitely gonna be coming packed with some of that classic Gaga heat, with the singer speaking on how the record is set to be different to Joanne.
“On Joanne, I was more in a space artistically of crafting something that, you know, conceptually all kind of went together, an album for my father, an album about the trauma of my family, an album about how we pass things on generationally to each other.”
“I would like to put out music that a big chunk of the world will hear,” she said. “[and]it will become a part of their daily lives and make them happy every single day.”
