Lady Gaga- We are 100 percent back on track!

Lady Gaga updated fans via her social networking website, LittleMonsters.com. Check out her message below!

I know you're anxious for more ARTPOP. I am working so so so so hard and the wait will be worth it. We are 100 percent back on track and I'm busy creating behind the scenes. I miss you so much! There's nothing I love more than to design experiences for us to share. I view everything as US. You are so special to me. Even when you don't hear from me, I am thinking of you and what we stand for every second. I know I am still a mystery to some people, even to some fans. My religion is still you monsters, it always has been and it always will be.

We're so glad things are back on track and we can't wait to see what Gaga and the Haus have in store!

Read the Original Case Study for Lady Gaga's 2013 VMA Performance

Torture, floating performers, and Ron Athey — all this and more were included in the original treatment for Lady Gaga's performance of "Applause" at the 2013 VMAs.  Creative development and production company, Dissident — a company that "converges at the intersecting realms of visual arts, film, music, fashion sport, emerging technology, and international event installation" — have posted the case study on their website, revealing details from the original outline that MTV Networks turned down.

Lady Gaga recently revealed that she wanted look alikes to wear her iconic looks from past music videos, but MTV also refused to let her carry out her vision. Check out the treatment below along with the visual references and rehearsal photos of the final product!

CASE STUDY: BLACK AND RED INTO BLINDING WHITE

LG begins on the center stage B below LED scoreboard, in a draped black gown (see reference image). The KAWS head turns to reveal a black backdrop (ex.: silk) stretched across the truss of the head. A red torture performance possibly involving artist Ron Athey (TO BE CONFIRMED) is displayed on an incline, with mirrored, bloody glass (see reference image). LG very slowly walks the catwalk to the main stage over a period of one minute and forty seconds.

At 1:40 / as LG arrives at the black silk drop, it drops kabuki style and is immediately pulled offstage to reveal a blinding white paradise garden (see reference images), filled with LG performers, possibly floating or displayed on tall pedestals (see attached looks). At the same time as the black screen drops, LG’s black dress drops to reveal the same elegant gown in white. LG begins to walk stage left across the stage in profile over the course of two minutes. As she crosses the torture figure, the dress turns red.

At 3:13, LG begins to fly diagonally up stage right in front of the white garden. The song ends as she is still ascending diagonally above the garden. At 3:36 or the end of the song, there is a black out; she is lowered and the head turns back to original position for next act. The exact timing of the walk, if her song is to be preceded by other noise/white noise etc./prior to it starting, etc. is ytd.

After a three year break, Lady Gaga has released a new Gagavision! Check out Gagavision 45 below:

Update, 01/23/14: Following this report, Interscope have removed "Gypsy" from their radio line-up website.

Interscope Announced the Third Single From ARTPOP... Or Did They?

News broke Tuesday afternoon that Interscope's Kedrick Phan, the Assistant to the President of Promotion/Radio and Video promotion coordinator -- according to his LinkedIn profile, uploaded audio of the 14th track off ARTPOP, "Gypsy". The Madeon produced song also appears on the official Interscope radio playlist website. Usually, this means that the track will be sent to radio within a few weeks time. However, this isn't always the case. After links were exchanged and the news spread, the power of assumption took over and led fans and fansites alike to believe that this is in fact the third single from ARTPOP.

PropaGaga reached out to a member of the Haus of Gaga, who confirmed that the song being uploaded is not a confirmation of its status as a third single, and that they weren't sure why the track had been uploaded. "We haven't chosen the song yet," they continued. So what does this all mean? Well, it means that "Gypsy" isn't necessarily not the third single, but it also means that they have another song or two competing for this spot, and we should wait for an official announcement from Lady Gaga or the Haus of Gaga.
