Lady Gaga releasing ARTPOP app


Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has been touting her new LP ‘ARTPOP’ again, adding to its campaign the detail that it’ll be available as an app. This is just an alternative option to the usual physical and digital versions, which will be “unique and different” to the app, apparently.

While it doesn’t sound quite as innovative (or considered in terms of its relation to the record) as Bj√∂rk’s ‘Biophilia’ project, Gaga’s ‘ARTPOP’ application will feature “chats, films for every song, extra music, content, Gaga-inspired games, fashion updates, magazines, and more still in the works”.

Inciting her Little Monsters to “start asking for iPads for Christmas” in order that they may use the app, Gaga said: “You inspired me to create something that communicated with images, because YOU do, YOU communicate with me and each other with gifs and pictures, and artwork, graphics ALL DAY 24/7 YOU’RE an ‘ARTPOP’ generation. I’m hoping you will all continue to grow together and stay connected through your creativity. Much love”.

And if that particular ‘ARTPOP’ invention doesn’t pique your technological intrigue, what about Gaga’s new fibroptic glow-in-the-dark wig, as is presented to you now by Gagz in her ‘English Madonna’ voice.
