Lady Gaga — The ‘SNL’ Applause!

Live from New York, it’s Lady Gaga‘s latest VMA performance.

The artist formerly known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta performed her new song “Applause” at last night’s MTV VMAs  and instead of copying Madonna, she replicated three old “Saturday Night Live” sketches: Justin Timberlake in Bring It On Down to Veganville, Martin Short as albino lounge singer Jackie Rogers Jr. and Mike Myers in Sprockets.

See, Lady Gaga really is a joke.
