Lady Gaga Raises The Artistic Bar With The Official ‘ARTPOP’ Album Cover

75aec243a16c8983a92c8103eb07000f Lady Gaga Raises The Artistic Bar With The Official ‘ARTPOP’ Album Cover

After a 30-minute unveiling that was streamed live across the globe, the official cover of Lady Gaga‘s ARTPOP is finally here — and the singer is definitely taking the “ART’ part of  ARTPOP seriously, as legendary sculptor Jeff Koons created a one-of-a-kind sculpture of Mother Monster for use on the artwork. The cover shows the austere Gaga sculpture donning her “Poker Face” wig and cupping her breasts, while one of Koons’ famous blue balls (ahem) sits in between her legs. Behind the sculpture are strips of Sandro Botticelli’s famous Renaissance painting “The Birth Of Venus” (which Gaga has repeatedly referenced) juxtaposed with black-and-white images, plus a bubble-gum pink font splashed across the graphic that evokes The Sex Pistols.

After seeing the cover, Lady Gaga’s aesthetic this era makes a lot more sense: From the Marina Abramovic promotional video to the Koons shout-out on lead single “Applause,” it seems like the singer is trying to make a meta-commentary on the history of art and the tension between classicism and modernity. Look out for more of Lady Gaga’s artistic journey on ARTPOP when it drops November 11.
