Lady Gaga's 'Perfect Illusion' Video: Watch Her Throw a Party in the Desert

The Little Monsters have yet another reason to get excited, because Lady Gaga has now dropped her "Perfect Illusion" video after last week's teaser. The pop star premiered the clip, directed by friend Ruth Hogben, during the season two premiere of Fox's Scream Queens.

Gaga's vibrant pop-rock single gets revved up even more with the video, which takes place in the middle of a California desert. The hot pants-wearing singer exudes fearlessness while she kicks up dust, drives around in a jeep and throws a wild party. Mark Ronson, Bloodpop and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, the song's collaborators, make appearances as well.

Joanne, Lady Gaga's anticipated follow-up to 2013's Artpop, will arrive on Oct. 21. She announced the news during an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1.
