Lady Gaga shows off a range of looks in the video for her single ‘Applause.’

Lady Gaga ended weeks of teasing with the debut of her video for new single “Applause.” She puts on a chameleon-like performance, showing off more looks than a Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus, including one very freaky black swan.

Gaga’s eccentric costumes have been one of her trademarks. But she goes one step further and adds and element of performance art to the video.

Her looks range from a highly stylized divas to semi-bare with little or no make-up and the tiniest bikinis. She showed no signs of her debilitating hip injury, which required surgery and a long convalescence.

She dances like a dervish on stage both solo and with backup dancers to the beat-heavy tune.

The clip is a prelude to her upcoming performance at the MTV Video Music Awards Aug. 25. Check it out below and follow TheImproper on Twitter for the latest music updates.
