Gaga wrote the following on her fan-populated social networking site:
“ARTPOP as they pry the single from my bleeding fingers. its a scary thing to revisit those things underneath, the pain in your past. but all I found was raw passion. I thought I was destroyed inside. im just ready to fight. start the music.”
Oh, girl, just get on with it already!
The image above, which features The Lady in a plain white shirt, sans makeup, stands in stark contrast to the completely nude, glammed-up image shot by Inez & Vinoodh for V Magazine that surfaced over the weekend. In that one, Gaga is fully done up, with her dirty blonde wig blown out like a lion’s mane.
A short video clip also popped up online this past weekend, featuring Gaga as a brunette, licking a set of monstrous green fingers.
Whatever the theme of the singer’s ARTPOP era is, it’s sure to be a blend of sexy and disturbing — in other words, business as usual for Lady Gaga.
