It premieres at the end of the month (I think it also goes to iTunes on the 27th too).

Cannot wait

Me too. She's really delivering so far. The time and effort put in clearly shows. As of today she has handed the full and finished album to interscope.

there is loads of speculation that it is the sequel to Papa/Tele....as the Venus symbol was utilised in the Telephone video...also apparently she used the Venus planet symbol across the BTW campaign....she has really planned this out for the past few years...

Cannot wait to hear it...who co-produced it with her? was it Zedd?

The Sharon thing crossed my mind too I hope that when they applaud, Sharon stands up, it will look a bit ignorant if she doesn't. Plus Sharon has actually come across much better this series than her previous stint.

I don't think Sharon really dislikes Gaga to the point of it being awkward. They just had a disagreement. I don't think there is any bad blood.

I really hope it's a massive song with a massive performance, otherwise the current R Kelly collab could overshadow it... not gonna lie, I don't know what to make of Venus currently with the lyrics she's released, I doubt it's gonna have a broader appeal than Do what you want

VENUS sounds outrageous....just hope the sound will match what has been teased...if so...great song, great promo...potentially a massive hit there too ...

Been playing some Sun Ra material before song launch...very trippy Jazz styles he had...will be itneresting to hear how he is utilised/sampled in VENUS .

Yes I was interested to hear about that sample too, I cannot wait to see her perform this live on Sunday.

Sunday is gonna be a good day for Gaga fans, downloading the new single AND the performance and hopefully (if it is a really great track) a possible UK #1 with the help of The X Factor

Rumors are rife on twitter and the Gaga boards that 'Venus' is now scrapped and 'Do What U Want' is now the second single.

It's kind of good news NOW but things could start to get messy. For example I doubt she'll be able to promote the song WITH R Kelly. This also leaves Sunday's X Factor UK performance a bit in limbo, if she performs 'DWUW' will she just sing R Kelly's parts? His section is too long for her to just dance or sing certain lines. Maybe she'll sing his parts (but that's kinda pointless in a collab).

The other thing is, if 'DWUW' is the next single and she still performs 'Venus', it'd be weird to promote a song that's not a single AND won't be available to buy instantly.

I hope this isn't true! Part of the reason why DWYW is doing so well is because of the pre-orders of ARTPOP. It's had a good response but the song hasn't been out long enough to know how much it's selling separately from the album preorders. I think this could be real mess, and just hope it isn't the case.

There's no video ready for DWYW, as you said before R Kelly most likely won't be available to sing his part, and his bits are a big part of why the song is doing so well imo.

Can't she release 2 at the same time, if they must? Release DWYW to top 40 and urban radio stations, and Venus to top 40 and pop? Would that work?

I've no idea MissMusique, Gaga has not tweeted a thing. I'm hoping it stays that way and this is all a lie!

I also really wanted to purchase 'Venus' on Sunday and see her perform a world exclusive too

I'm going to wait until there's an official announcement before assuming anything. It's so easy to troll things like this these days...

I think they should just leave DWYW as it is, and just carry on with the original plan. As you and Slojo said before - apparently if it sells enough it can chart so if that's what they're worried about then it'll do that anyway. I think original plan is best.

Also (apparently) the 'Venus' music video has already been shot, what happens to that if it's scrapped as a single? There's a lot at stake here.

BUT like people are saying, I guess all that may have gone out the window when the management etc saw 'DWUW' #1 in now over 60 countries. It does kind of make sense but in the long term is it more damaging than beneficial.

But it hasn't even been out for 48 hours so we don't know what kind of longevity it's going to have... I'm glad it's doing so well so far but I don't think 48 hours is enough to base a decision like that on.

Re the video - she said a while ago she's shooting a video for every song. Whether she'll keep to that or not I don't know, there's been nothing said for a while on that subject so who knows?

No idea. I really hope an official announcement is made soon or basically stick to 'Venus' being the single. It would be easier!
