    I'm hoping that that club performance is her Glitter moment so we can move on as quick as possible to her proper comeback. I mean it's a good song but she doesn't seem emotionally fit to release a new album.

    Do Spotify and iTunes streaming even mean that much in the first week or so? Most of it is just hype and "oh look Gags has a new song". It's hardly an indicator that people actually LIKE it.

    Omg you guys I had my first my moment to this in a club last night. I actually YAAAAS-ed when it came on, I was ready to do a silly impression of Gaga performing it which is actually great fun when you're drunk :disco: Other than that the song is impossible to dance to as expected, people just didn't know what to do after the initial YAS GAGA, apart from 3 LITTLE MONSTERS who were clearly losing their shit, SOMEWHERE IN ALL THE CONFUSION.

    It means her chart position is going to be clobbered, if nothing else.

    and down to #4 on iTunes UK.

    I wonder where this will end up on the final chart? I'm guessing low top 20 is the best it can hope for unless there's a significant turnaround.

    Gaga too unstable to release a new album? Pffft, that means the timing's absolutely spot on - all hope's not lost yet.

    The instrumental really is awesome! I do love the song, but wish they'd done a bit more with the melody, over such a great backing track.

    It\s pretty good for such a rushed job... I wish she had been brave enough to go for instrumentation like this, if 'rock' was what her aim was (even though I love the instrumental as it is). Because anyone claiming Gaga's version is 'rock' is completely delusional. It's the most pure pop song in the chart.

    Well, on the same planet where APPLAUSE apparently sounds identical to JUST DANCE just WHAT do you expect

    I don't know how long the detractors need to realise that this is ENTIRELY PART OF HER APPEAL! :disco:

    I did my bit today by driving around central London with the windows down and Perfect Illusion on repeate really loud.

    I really like this now. Aside from the key change.

    The not quite a middle 8 part is my favourite part.

    The gays are such ungrateful creatures. After all the Lady has done for us, dedicating her life and viable recording career to our wellbeing, this is how we repay her.

    I hope there IS A GOD and that he TRULY DOES HATE FAGS

    Her spooky Geru career arc is coming along quite beautifully, I can't wait for Gaga's Original Showgirl tour at the Edinburgh Playhouse to go ahead.

    It went down like a lead balloon at the (mainly populated by gays) party I was at last night :( Although it DID prompt someone to say "I told you we should've played Swine" afterwards, which cheered me up.

    I sense a HIT!

    If you look at the numbers, I reckon she could be outside the Top 10 tomorrow. And being outsold by the new James Arthur single.

    This works like the dramatic comedown answer to the infatuation induced call to The Goddess of Love in Venus.

    Honestly, the FOUL HUMOURLESS QUEENS in this thread have so little appreciation for how much joy Joanne has gifted to the world

    She wouldn't normally do this type of thing but Gaga also performed a stripped-back, rock-influenced, acoustic, Live Lounge cover of Bad Romance for the fans.

    I think it reminds me a lot of "Electric Chapel" from one of her albums, but not quite as good.
