Lady Gaga gave one emotional performance of her new ballad Dope on Sunday night, Nov. 3, when she hit the stage for the inaugural 2013 YouTube Music Awards.
With tears streaming down her face, Gaga, dressed in trucker hat and flannel shirt, sang, "I promise this drink is my last one/I know I f**ked up again/Because I lost my only friend/Just one last puff and two last regrets/Three spirits and 12 lonely steps/I need you more than dope."
Also performing at the YouTube Music Awards was Arcade Fire, Eminem and Avicii.
On Halloween, the Mother Monster shared the artwork for her Dope song, tweeting:
In the photos, Gaga, 27, pairs her black underwear with a seriously square jacket, funny teeth and a big black hat, similar to what she wore on the carpet for the YouTube Awards. The Applause singer will also be performing on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 16.
'Dope' will be available 12:01am local time Nov 4th. Final song available for purchase before ARTPOP release Nov 11. pic.twitter.com/iTCHRy5HeA— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 31, 2013
