And she has returned! The long awaited new single of our Mother Monster Lady Gaga is finally here and it sounds incredible. It’s been three years since her last album ARTPOP dropped in 2013 and we’re so relieved to finally here some new material.

 

The song was written and produced by Gaga herself and well renowned guitarist and producer, Mark Ronson who is mostly known for hits such as the remade version of Valerie by Amy Winehouse and Uptown Funk by Bruno MarsPerfect Illusion is a rock themed ballad about Gaga realising the man she thought she loved, who doesn’t really love her as much as she hoped, hence the “Perfect Illusion”.

We know that Gaga recently broke up with Taylor Kinney. Could the song be about him even though she confirmed to all of us that they broke up because of scheduling issues? Or maybe Taylor broke up with her because he wasn’t willing to stay as her “trophy man” even though she loved him deeply. As sad as it may be we’re just glad our Born This Way angel managed to channel her pain into making some great music. Mother Monster you can have our Applause, you’ve earned it.
