Some of the leaked lyrics also give that old-school Gaga vibe too. You know the one, where she sings about love but also self-empowerment and taking things for yourself: “You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for / Gotta quit this crying / Nobody’s gonna heal me if I don’t open the door / Kinda hard to believe (Gotta have faith in me).”Of course within hours of the leak Lady Gaga was trending on social media.

Obviously Gaga didn’t intend for the world to hear her new music so early (the leak came from fans who realized the words “Stupid Love” were hidden in source code on her website) but let’s be real: this is exactly the kind of unexpected publicity that sells even more albums. It’s also the snippet fans have been dying for ever since the singer announced plans for a new album via an Instagram story last September.Meanwhile, we’ll never take a Lady Gaga post at face value ever again. As some fans have now noticed, the artist totally teased “Stupid Love” on Halloween. If you look closely at this picture, there’s an iPhone beside the pumpkin playing the track.
