Lady Gaga shares this photo of her new tattoo on social network, LittleMonsters.com several hours ago. The photo came with an interesting caption that read “New ink new album”. The new tattoo also reads ‘ARTPOP’. Gaga later posted a picture that read: “We could, we could, belong together, ARTPOP”. Gaga’s music producer DJ White Shadow, which Gaga refers to as her brother, posted a photo on his Twitter with the tattoo ‘ARTPOP’ on his hands.
During a chat last night on LittleMonsters.com, Gaga says of the expression ‘ARTPOP’:
“Pop art was a movement in the 70s that is still alive today”
“ARTPOP is the music I’ve been making since ‘The Fame’”
“The irony of ARTPOP and pop art being similar is on purpose”
“ARTPOP could mean anything”
Regardless of what’s being reported, Gaga has NOT (yet) announced that ‘Artpop’ is the title of her new single or album (due next year). That official announcement won’t come until September. ‘Artpop’ could very well be an artistic expression centered around the upcoming project. Album title or not, Gaga sure knows how to keep the momentum buzzing. Stay tuned for more on that because I have a feeling further hints will be thrown our way throughout the week.
