Lady Gaga Reveals The Meaning Behind 'Perfect Illusion'

Lady Gaga

(Radio.com) Lady Gaga is back with a brand new single, "Perfect Illusion" from her just announced new album Joanne. Lyrically, the song laments lost connections between people, but musically, it's the product of a somewhat unlikely musical union between super-producer Mark Ronson, Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, songwriter/producer Bloodpop and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age.

While some might think the track was influenced by her recent split with her fiance Taylor Kinney, she says it's not about their story in particular, but more so about everyone's story when it cones to relationships .

As she told Radio.com, "This song in particular is about a failed relationship, whether it's about somebody who you are dating, or a friend in your life, someone who is maybe a family member."

Of course, when you're Lady Gaga, making new relationships can be difficult. "Me and Kevin Parker from Tame Impala, who I wrote the song with, and Mark Ronson and Bloodpop, we also talked about how the public views me as this sort of perfect illusion, and how it hinders my ability to have a human connection with them."

She continues, "It's a song not only about being upset that a relationship is over, but a song also about being upset and confused that it's so hard to find a real relationship. And to find a real connection, because we're living in a social media storm right now, where there's so many augmented, filtered, perfect illusions around us that we can't figure out what's authentic and what isn't."Read more here.
