Lady Gaga performs acoustic on japanese tv showLady Gaga put on the dramatics for her acoustic performance of “Perfect Illusion” on Japanese TV show “Sukkiri.” Despite the song’s lyrics, the singer’s acoustic performance made “Perfect Illusion” sound more like a love song than a breakup song.

Unlike the U.S. charts, “Perfect Illusion” is having some success in Japan, rising from 81 to 39 on the “Hot 100″ chart.

The Chainsmokers Nearly Applaud Lady Gaga’s Shade

The Chainsmokers Nearly Applaud Lady Gaga's ShadeAlex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Greg James to address their recent Lady Gaga encounter. The duo expressed a negative reaction to “Perfect Illusion” in an interview with Rolling Stone, which prompted Lady Gaga to time her response with the release of “A-YO.” The shade was not lost on The Chainsmokers and they discuss it in this new interview.

“She promoted her new song while throwing shade at us,” Alex recalls. The duo seems to feel as though the song was targeted at them, but it was written long before their beef with Lady Gaga. “The song kind of sounds like a diss track. The song is about smoking us.”

“I’m like a loud mouth New Yorker,” Alex says in defense of his original “Perfect Illusion” diss. “It sucks, we’re so new to this whole exposure, attention thing.” He then uses Patrick Carney’s more recent bash of the song to promote the strength in numbers argument. “And the dude with Black Keys agrees with me too so we’re three now,” he adds.

Listen to the interview below and tell us your thoughts.

Lady Gaga Explains What “Perfect Illusion” Is Really About

Lady Gaga confirms video premiere dateAfter teasing the upcoming “Perfect Illusion” music video for weeks, Lady Gaga has now confirmed the premiere date with a new video teaser.

Since the song’s debut, many have speculated that the song is about the singer’s ex Taylor Kinney. However, Lady Gaga quickly denied those reports and is revealing that the single is actually about how “love is the most intoxicating, powerful drug in the world.”

The singer goes on to explain that the song also plays off of the fact that with social media everyone is trying to create an illusion of who they really are. “Maybe having trouble keeping up with other people’s illusions and unable to find what’s authentic in the sea of all of that,” she adds.

The music video will premiere on September 20 during “Scream Queens.”
