Is Lady Gaga’s New Music the Perfect Illusion?

By Taylor Bushey 

The “Bad Romance” queen is back with a new single that’s already made its way to topping the charts.

Artist Lady Gaga is known for her crazy fun music that matches her unique vision. Her latest song, “Perfect Illusion”, is about a romance that ended but was described as too perfect to possibly be true. After breaking up with Taylor Kinney in a rather long-term relationship, parts of the song might be shooting hints that it’s about him, especially since the couple seemed to be very much in love during the relationship.

The lyrics are catchy and the overall song has a good beat to dance to. However, this might not be Gaga’s best work simply because it’s not something expected. In fact, the bold artist’s song is much tamer than what fans are use to. Songs such as “Telephone” or “Bad Romance” have a bold, confident approach whereas this song takes more of an emotional turn.

Although, this could be a result to the fact that her career took a turn into acting in the past year.

Gaga debuted last year on American Horror Story Hotel as one of the leading rolls and literally killed every line. After the season ended she said in an interview expressing that acting might be her new outlet to express her wild side. What better way than to star on a show that’s known for its unpredictability?

Shortly after, Gaga told ET Online that she might not continue music at all. “I feel sad when I’m overworked, and that I just become a money making machine, and that my passion and my creativity take a back seat; that makes me unhappy,” she admitted. Gaga went on to say that she wanted to make money based off her own inspiration and not that of a typical day job.

But after her interview, it didn’t seem to stop Gaga from releasing another album. “Perfect Illusion” is only one song to the new album Joanne, which is set to be released on Oct. 21. The name of her album was inspired by the name of her late aunt who passed away from lupus at the age of 19.


Gaga never knew her aunt, but said she felt she had a good connection with her.

Fans can also expect for the album to have a few other artist features, one even rumored to be Kesha.

If one thing’s for sure, it is that fans can certainly guarantee all of Gaga’s music to have some sort of passion, regardless of the type of song. Like her interview stated, she will create with joy instead of being blind by the idea of money.
