She always speaks highly of her "Little Monsters," and on Wednesday (September 18) Lady Gaga took to Twitter to explain her hit song "Applause" and what it means to be a celebrity.

The eccentric songstress began her series of tweets by explaining why her first single from the upcoming album Artpop is so important to her, "'Applause' is a very meaningful song to me, because it addresses what many think of 'celebrities' today, that we ‘do it' for the attention."

She continued in a second tweet, "But some of us are 'artists' in this group called 'celebrity,' & what we create doesn't live on unless there's an audience to remember it."

Gaga also described the motivation behind her attention getting persona saying, "So I may need your attention at first, so I can sing you my song. But it's the 'Applause' after that let me know if I've entertained you."

"Entertainment makes people happy, I live for the 'Applause,' to know I've spread that. I live to hear you cheer, to just be a part of that," she said. "I believe in show business. The 'Applause' is what breeds that thing that I love. When I know I've made you happy. When I know it was good."
