Lady Gaga has slammed those behind the early leak of her new single 'Applause'.

The singer took to Twitter yesterday (August 10) to complain about a short clip of her new track, which is due out on August 19, leaking online. The clip has since been removed. In a series of Tweets, Gaga raged at those responsible for the unofficial release and asked Katy Perry, whose new single 'Roar' has also been leaked, to help her "fuck up some hackers". She wrote:




Yesterday, Gaga declared that it will be "not acceptable" for people to listen to her forthcoming new album 'ARTPOP' on their computer speakers. Writing on Twitter, the singer hyped up the release of her new LP by writing: "oh, & just a suggestion... use HEADPHONES when listening to the new music, ARTPOP is ELECTRONIC CANDY & DELISH ON THE EARS."

She then went on to state: "THE SPEAKERS ON YOUR COMPUTER are NOT ACCEPTABLE, unless you like hearing music underwater. I do not", before adding in a separate message: "The album ARTPOP was produced by the amazing----> @DJWS @ZEDD @MADEON + @LADYGAGA. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE US CRY AND LISTEN WITHOUT HEADPHONES."

Gaga is set to release 'Applause' on August 19 with 'ARTPOP', which is her third studio album, to follow on November 11.
