Much like when a sassy child in need of a proper spanking tosses a baseball at a hornet’s nest, Lady Gaga, She Of The Internet Frenzy-Starting, has dropped news of her ARTPOP HausAppRaveTech-a-paloozajandro online, and nothing for Little Monsters ’round the universe will ever be the same again. The first single, in case you are just waking up, is out in August! There’s an album app! (An applum?) ARTPOP will be available in time to stuff up your digital stocking! It all feels like French-kissing on a subway train!
So what does this all mean? Well, we at Idolator had the bright idea to go get some man-on-the-street reactions to Gaga’s newest revelation. Then we actually peeked outside and it’s looking kind or rainy, so we just turned to the world’s most reliable source for intelligent, thought-out commentary on relevant current events: Twitter.
Head below to see how you reacted to the onset of the ARTPOP Age.
I know my friends get who I am as a human because I woke up to 12 texts from different friends sending me #ARTPOP details.

Hear that? That’s the sound of Björk’s eyes rolling after reading Lady Gaga’s press release about the “Reverse Warholian Artpop album app”. — Alasdair (@Freudenschade) July 12, 2013
Wait gaga released a everything about ARTPOP? R.I.P Lana, Marina and Azealia stans. — #ImOutoniTunes (@NICKITELLEM) July 12, 2013
I really really hope ARTPOP isn’t like Born This Way.

Pretty sure I wrote Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP press release verbatim as part of my undergraduate application to Sarah Lawrence seven years ago — Sam Lansky (@samlansky) July 12, 2013
I’m so excited about #ARTPOP but guys seriously let’s at least make every 2nd tweet about the weather or something

I will say that ARTPOP as a name sets off my show-don’t-tell sensors in a bad way. here’s hoping the former doesn’t drag down the latter.

Sometimes I feel like picking fights with the people who bother @zedd about artpop. But I don’t want to stoop down to their level, so…

Ugh trying to convince coworker that Robyn>Lady Gaga but he said all her songs are about crying in a bathroom alone after a breakup.

God, I miss Robyn.
