Lady Gaga On New Single "Stupid Love"

Lady Gaga is back and better than ever, with the release of her new single, "Stupid Love," accompanied by its official music video which was filmed on an iPhone.

It may have only been released at midnight, but it's clear little monsters are already loving the new song as it's alreday hit #1 on US iTunes, and the video is the #1 trending music video on YouTube in the US.

Plus, "Stupid Love" could well be headed for a #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

About her new single, Gaga said: "'Stupid Love' is a really special song to me. I worked on it with a few different people, Bloodpop and Tchami being some of them, as well as [producer] Max Martin.

"I wrote this song with a lot of love in my heart and a lot of belief that the world operates because of kindness and love."

The superstar says that she set out to make a song that "really celebrated love".  

She told Zane Lowe at Apple Music. “We are definitely dancing… I put all my heart, all my pain, all my messages from the other realm [!!] that I hear of… what they tell me to tell the world and I put it into music that I believe to be so fun and you know, energetically really pure.

“I want people to dance and feel happy.”

She also told KISS FM: "I think that for some of us, it’s easier to love and for others it’s harder to love and the more vulnerable we are, the more brave we are to open ourselves up, to really, really love each other. 

"I think that love heals the world, I think it keeps us together. 

"It’s how we survive as a planet and I wanted to make a song that really celebrated love and reminded us all how important it is."

Gaga teased the single on her Instagram and Twitter accounts in the hours leading up to its release, adding that she would be "breathing into a paper bag" when the world first heard it. 

She wrote: "My single and music video are dropping in 45 minutes. Don’t mind me, I’ll just be in the corner breathing into a paper bag. #StupidLove #CHROMATICA (sic)"

Earlier this week, Gaga announced "Stupid Love" would be released on Friday, after the single was leaked online last month.

"Stupid Love" is the first track released from her upcoming sixth studio album, Chromatica, which also marks her first since 2016's Joanne.

The wait is almost over as Chromatica is due to be released on April 10 via Interscope Records.
