Love her or hate her, Lady Gaga has proven time and time again that she is very much influenced by the horror genre, something she gives great appreciation to in her music videos. And now with the upcoming release of her new album Artpop (out November 11th via Interscope Records), she is showing her love of the genre once again with the official music video for “Applause”. A series of surreal, almost Lynch-like scenarios are shot in stark black and white with color used to almost shocking effect. Many of the shots call to mind an almost Ingmar Bergman stylistic approach.
Artpop can be pre-ordered here.
