So this is what Lady Gaga meant by Artpop: Up above is the cover for the singer’s upcoming third studio album. Created by Jeff Koons, it’s a modern take on Sandro Botticelli’s painting The Birth of Venus, complete with naked Lady Gaga giving birth to a giant blue orb.
As Gaga explained on Twitter, I’m nervous&excited to share something that’s such a piece of my heart. Something I cherish deeply. A real depiction of my mind through [Koons’].”
Artpop arrives November 11th. Watch the video for “Applause” below.
