PHOTO Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP album cover revealed

Lady Gaga ARTPOP album cover

After weeks of teasing Lady Gaga finally unveiled the cover to her new album ARTPOP today in a live event featuring numerous Clear Channel Outdoor billboards around the world, including the most famous electronic billboard in the world located in Times Square. The unveiling started at 1pm EST as a partial image was shown. Then, as more and more people posted tweets with the hashtag #iHeartARTPOP, the rest of the image was revealed, showing a seated nude sculpture of Lady Gaga in front of fragmented views of Sandro Botticelli’s famous painting “The Birth of Venus” and a black-and-white photograph of an as-yet-unidentified sculpture. Between Gaga’s legs is a blue sphere with a mirror finish in which the fourth wall is broken and the reflection of the photographer can be seen.

Lady Gaga’s official Facebook page revealed soon after the cover image was fully unveiled that the sculpture of Lady Gaga featured in the image is “a new Jeff Koons sculpture to be exhibited nov.10 at the artRAVE ARTPOP’s release party!”

The post also included:

‘One second I’m a Koons, then suddenly the Koons is me!’ #ApplauseJeffKoons

Sandro Botticelli painting Birth of Venus with naked woman standing in a seashell

The inclusion of Botticelli’s painting (above) shouldn’t surprise Lady Gaga fans as she has drawn numerous comparisons to the Venus depicted in the painting with the seashell bikini she has worn recently and the similarly-themed look she had on Watch What Happens Live. I’m sure it won’t be long before one of the millions of Little monsters figure out what the sculpture is that is mixed in with the painting in the background, and we will try to update as soon as we find out.

So what do you think about the ARTPOP album cover? One thing I think we can all agree on is that it’s certainly better than the Born This Way Gagacycle thing!
