I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

from Lady Gaga – Applause Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Music is what she lives for. It’s the Little Monsters that keep her on Earth.

In one way, it’s literal. She wrote this song during her recovery phase after her hip surgery, taking inspiration from the applause and fans that allowed her to keep on during her last performances.

The main purpose is that she wants to make her fans happy. Applause is a sign of enjoyment and bonding in a way with the artist.
