This takes the cake as the worst song from Lady Gaga ever. It was sponsored by Volkswagen and Doritos. The record companies purposefully wrote this song for her because it was fun, catchy and commercial. It’s a horrible song. Even when Lady Gaga perfomed in Austin for South by SouthWest Music Festival – it was a Doritos sponsored event – after a great set of her hits, she said “And now we are going to do Applause because we have to”. They forced her to sing that song because she got so much money in endorsements. You can see how miserable she was while singing the song. She hates the song. And so do we.
