Didn’t understand what ARTPOP was all about? Well, Lady Gaga is more than happy to explain her vision to you in a brand new film.
The over 2-minute clip titled, An ARTPOP Film Starring Lady Gaga, starts with just Gaga’s soothing voice, letting you know, “This album is a celebration. My pain exploding in electronic music. It’s heavy but after I listen to it, I feel happy again and I feel lighter.”
Then things get weird. Like, really weird.
Over the title track of her recent album we see quick flashes of Gaga in a whole slew of getups including a Medusa like wig of computer cords, a mud bikini and those horribly decayed teeth seen on the cover of her single, “Dope.”
She’s rubbing dirt all over herself, making out with a mannequin head and showing off her best Miss America wave. And why is she doing all this? In the name of ARTPOP, of course.
