Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Lady Gaga's drag club 'madness'
Mother Monster, Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga's Applause video was 'spur of the moment', reveals
a drag queen to music-news.com. Mother Monster released the music promo for her
new single from album ARTPOP this week, which features cross-dressing
performers. Gaga and her Haus of Gaga entourage visited Micky's nightclub in
West Hollywood, California to capture footage for the video. Famed female
impersonator Shannel had no idea she was going to be in it initially, as Gaga
appeared at the venue unexpectedly. "It was very last minute, spur of the
moment. We knew nothing about it,' told MTV News. "She just sat there in
the crowd, just as a regular spectator, and then it just became a lot more
interactive [when she came on stage and] that got the crowd really up and
going. And then birthdays came around and she started singing to all the people
onstage. It was great!" Shannel admits the crowd got a little carried away
with excitement while watching Gaga sing. The drag queen believes no one
expected the superstar to interact so intimately with fans. "Madness! It
was lots and lots of energy! To the audiences' perspective, it was this
completely overwhelming thing that kind of came," she explained. "It
sealed the deal [when she jumped onstage]. Like 'Whoa, she's raised human' and
she doesn't have to have a bodyguard on her every second of the moment, [she
has] her own free will and spirit and all of that. It was pretty cool."
