Lady Gaga is releasing a brand new album on October 21, haters be damned.

This is the first album from Gaga herself (excluding her 2015 album with Tony Bennett, Cheek To Cheek) since Artpop in 2013, which was met with mixed reviews. Gaga is putting everything into Joanne, the new album, and even embarked on a bar crawl in Nashville earlier this month to promote her new material and evolving sound.

And while Gaga's shade was subtle (I mean seriously, who has the audacity to insult the Mother of Monsters?), her stans were not.
