Applause
Lady Gaga Lyrics


I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong
To crash the critics saying, "is it right or is it wrong?"
If only fame had an IV, baby could I bear
Being away from you, I found the vein, put it in here

I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Give me that thing that I love (Turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love (Turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)

(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch

I've overheard your theory
"Nostalgia's for geeks"
I guess sir, if you say so
Some of us just like to read

One second I'm a kunst
Then suddenly the kunst is me
Pop culture was in art
Now, art's in pop culture in me

I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Give me that thing that I love (Turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love (Turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)

(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch

Ooh touch, touch ooh
Touch, touch now ooh ooh ooh ooh

I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Give me that thing that I love (Turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love (Turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)

(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch

If some people doesn't understand the clip, I will explain (sorry for english mistakes)
This song was totally made for her fans.

0:13 : "I've stand here waiting for you to bang the gong to crash the critic saying: Is it right or is it wrong?"
I think she's talking about the Little Monsters, that we was locked in million of stereotypes and standards that the society put us, and she camed here to break and set us free and after her song "Born This Way" we ringed her bell. We applaused and supported her because what she was saying all the time about us was exactly what we was suffering of, and she camed to crash the critics saying, that keeps saying is "is it wrong to you" and "is it right".

0:24 Keep it on 1,75x to see and understand better.
She was clapping her hands (That is her as an artist, supporting and making it loud with her fans) and back was some people dancing and moving (Little Monsters).

0:27 "If only fame had an IV, baby, could I bear"
Sorry if I am wrong, I don't speak english fluently, so, I was searching for applause's lyrics translate into my language and "IV" is like "therapy", right? So, she's saying about how is hard to be an famous artist like her. She camed to break the stereotypes and reforce our fight for it, and the society is all the time trying to make her stop and lock her, like there is an scene here that she's locked (0:30).

0:26 There is an scene that she was in a cauldron and there is some knifes trying to hit her, and she is not killing with it, and she cames more creepy than she was before.
This is like I was saying, the society trying to block her and make her stop to support us because she's "weird" and "need to be stopped", but she don't stop, she cames democking of the society and she come back more creepy than before.
And if a knife hit her, she born again.

0:29 Her face is with blue in her eyes and orange in her mouth. I think this is an representation of crying, and vomit. That's what the society is trying to make her feel but you can see in her facial expressions that she's democking of this.

0:40 "I live for the applause... Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me"
She's living for the attention and the way her fans support her.

0:55 "Give me that thing that I love... Put your hands up, make 'em touch"
She loves to see that we love her. So let's applause her and make our hands touch!

1:04 Put it on 0,50x to see better.
She's living and at the same time there is a lot of people doing what they want and being who they are with her. That's exactly what she is fighting for, all this time.

1:35 "One second, I'm a kunst then suddenly the kunst is me... Pop culture was in art, now art's in pop culture, in me"
The translation of "kunst" means "art". One second, she's an art (artist), then suddenly the art is me (she is the art, not just her profession as an artist, she is THE art). Pop culture was one of some arts, now, the art is the pop culture - she's an pop culture, she's THE art, she's an "kunst", like she was saying. Here is an scene that she's a swan, she's doing art even as a swan. She's an art.

2:47 I didn't understand this but I think this is like a time line. She was coming to "bang the gong".

3:04 0,50x again. She bang the gong and find the Little Monsters. You can see that there is some people supporting her.

That's it I think what she was saying to us. This song is made for us. Be pride of yourself!

Name_

Lol She is a great performer and creative, but her work references stuff done in the 70s, 80s, 90s and to be fair she is honest about that. Her fans however sometimes sound like they gave no music and culture knowledge. She was unique at the time that she exploded on to the scene because there was a space for someone like her as there wasn't anyone like that at the time. But us she the first to do this approach to music and performance art? No.

One of her best music videos of all times in my defense bruh. She combined the artistic energies of Leonardo di Vinci, Donatello, Raphael, Michael Angelo, Monet, and Picasso, with a mixture of optical illusions and magician tricks I love this video. This video is what made her album truly make art really pop. “ARTPOP”🙌🏾👏🏾👏🏾💯💯🤟🏾🤟🏾
