Lady Gaga took to the stage at a small London nightclub on the weekend to perform her comeback track “Perfect Illusion” live for the first time.
She released the new song on Friday and went to the Moth Club in east London for a surprise performance the next night, and video uploaded online shows her swinging her microphone around and rocking some epic underboob.
According to the UK’s Telegraph, “Perfect Illusion” co-producer Mark Ronson warmed up the crowd with a lengthy DJ set before Gaga was introduced by UK drag queen Jodie Harsh. #GaGa
Australian rocker Kevin Parker, frontman of Tame Impala, also co-produced the track with Gaga, and she told BBC Radio 1 on the weekend that he’s a “musical genius”.
“Kevin Parker flew over from Australia and he came up with this idea that the beginning of the song was called Illusion,” she said.
“We stripped everything away. I sat at the piano, Kevin was on the guitar and Mark [Ronson] was at the bass and we just played through it and I worked on a typewriter and we would bounce new lyrics back and forth.
“What was important to me was it wasn’t just a song about any illusion but one we can all relate to. That’s how we came up with the title Perfect. But I have to hand it to Kevin, he is a real musical genius.”
