UPDATE: See the Lady Gaga-Jeff Koons Album Cover for “Art POP”


UPDATE: I told you that Lady Gaga showed me her album cover a couple of weeks ago. Here it is, a collaboration for the ages. “ArtPOP” will be released on November 11th. Gaga enlisted famed contemporary artist Jeff Koons to create the cover. What’s interesting about Stephanie Germanotta is that she’s trying the same sort of things groups like the Rolling Stones and Velvet Underground did eons ago by exposing her audience to real artists. Those groups worked with Andy Warhol. Madonna — when she was interesting– was all about Keith Haring. Gaga is trying to broaden her horizons. Let’s just hope the songs are good, too!
