The track is all about being a teenager in today's modern world, being baffled by the luxurious material objects that many artists in pop boast about in their lyrics, and listeners are relating to her message.
Lady Gaga has released the official album artwork for her upcoming album, ARTPOP, dropping November 11th.

Dropping one of the most highly-anticipated pop albums of 2013, and of her entire music career, Miley Cyrus' Bangerz is officially out on October 4th, but was available to stream today for fans (and haters) alike.

One of 2013's best albums of the year, Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, was released back in March of this year and cemented Timberlake's status as an international pop sensation. When May rolled around, the singer/songwriter/actor revealed that he would be releasing a second half of the iconic record, entitled The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2. It was a unique move from the team behind Timberlake, releasing a second full-length album just shy of six months past the original album's due date, specifically because so many solid tracks were recorded and they didn't want to miss out on offering them to the fans.
Katy Perry is the latest artist to grace the cover of Billboard magazine, and in her interview with the popular music publication, she revealed her follow-up single to her massive hit and anthem of empowerment "Roar".

The pair, who are brothers in real life, have been specializing in making comedy music since 2000, but have never hit international fame until now, with the release of the bizarre tune that has everybody baffled by the lyrics. The song starts off sounding like a nursery rhyme: "Dog goes woof / Cat goes meow / Bird goes tweet / And mouse goes squeak." However, it picks up in the chorus when the pair question just what sound the fox makes — it varies from Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding to Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!
