Lady Gaga declared a “pop music emergency” yesterday (12.08.13) after clips of her new single, ‘Applause’, leaked, forcing her to rush release it a week early.


The ‘Judas’ hitmaker was left disgruntled after clips of her new track ‘Applause’ hit the airwaves yesterday (12.08.13), declaring it an “emergency”.She wrote to her Twitter followers: “Due to hackers an abundance of low/high quality leaks we issue this pop music emergency … monsters spread the word.

“My new single ‘Applause’ is out today and can be head on United States radio in 15 minutes. International radio to follow.

“Pop music emergency #0DAYSTillAPPLAUSE my single comes out today. 911 spread this message.”

The song – the lead single from her new album ‘ARTPOP’ – immediately caused confusion with some radio bosses censoring what they thought was a racist slur, but was actually the singer namedropping US artist Jeff Koons.

She said: “I can’t believe they bleeping out Koons – they think I’m saying the C word (sic).”
