This is a Lady Gaga performance her Little Monsters could only dream of.
As soon as the pop singer dropped "Perfect Illusion" on Friday, her first solo track in three years, fans were itching to know when Gaga would take the stage and perform it live. Well, it didn't take long at all, with the performer surprising clubgoers in London early Saturday morning with an energetic rendition of the power ballad.
Rocking a pair of sequined silver short-shorts and a grey crop top, the Grammy winner left little to the imagination as she danced across the stage singing her heart out at the Moth Club. Gaga then took to the piano to play an acoustic version of "Bad Romance," joking with the audience, "I didn't even remember the words" as they helped her sing the chorus.
The 30-year-old's long-awaited return to the music scene has been met with quite a bit of speculation that her newest song is a metaphor for her recent breakup with Taylor Kinney. The lyrics refer to a relationship that can only be described as just that, a "Perfect Illusion," and while Gaga said they refer to the non-reality of social media, many believe they're about her actor ex.
However, a source told E! News that despite what the lyrics suggest, there's still hope for the former lovebirds. "It was a very intense, emotional relationship...Maybe she had some things she needed to get out of her system," our insider explained. "But there's still a chance they may find their way back to each other."
In fact, they've been working toward doing so. "They've been talking," the source added. "Everyone around them has been saying,"'Never say never.'"
For now it appears as if Gaga's main focus will be her music, and judging from her latest performance, not a single person will be complaining.
