Lady Gaga Makes Big Announcement About New Music And More

GagaBesides her stirring speech and controversial rendition of the national anthem at New York Pride, Lady Gaga has been remarkably quiet for months —well, by her standards anyway. But that will end very soon as the pop icon used her Facebook page to announce release dates for her new single and next album.

The album ARTPOP (the all caps are hers) will be released (or as she delicately puts it, will “explode onto the physical and virtual universe”) November 11, but the lead single will be out August 19. Pre-orders for the album and app will begin on September. 9.

Excuse us? An app? Is she planning to help her “little monsters” hook up? Not quite.

According to the posting the app is “a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion and technology” which will establish “Gaga’s existence as a cultural interface” while allowing users to “experience the ‘adrenaline of fame.’” Ooh, OK, we’ll download it.

ARTPOP is described as “a rage of electronic passion and fury.”

Also announced is “artRave,” taking place on November 10, the eve of the album’s release, when the entertainer will host an evening of exhibitions that highlight her work with artists such as Jeff Koons,Marina Abramovic and Robert Wilson.

Gaga’s legion of devoted fans are undoubtedly ecstatic. Just hours after the Facebook announcement, Gaga’s post had received nearly 85,000 likes and 5,000 comments. It appears the Lady is definitely back.

See the entire statement below.

      She equipped the Basic B*tch Face Guard v.2321 to shield herself from all your faves (read: peasants) tbh.

      @Shane: Nope, that’s Madonna. Not sure why her picture is on this article, but meh, whatever.

      @whatisthis: Don’t know if they changed the picture, but it sure does not look like Madonna and does look like Gaga.

      @Polaro: You sure? That’s clearly Madonna. Look, her ARTPOP tattoo is even visible.

      Why do people keep saying she looks like Madonna?

      She looks exactly like Judith Light to me.

      I love Gaga, but frak the visual app–whatever it is. I just want the music.

      Really guys???!! Did you even look at the arms.. Those are NOT MADONNA’s arms!! Madonna is is toned to Hell and back!! And Madge wouldn’t be caught dead in that mask. Lady G definitely has different looks… Even though Madonna had lots of different costumes and reinventions of herself.. One always KNEW it was Madonna because she has that face we ALL know… Lady G has so many different physical looks that I don’t think I would recognize her on the street.

      Hmm, why would people think they would put a pic of Madonna in an article announcing Gaga’s new single and album? To me, that’s clearly Gaga.
      My Mom is going to be happy. Whenever I see her she asks, “when is Gaga coming back! I want to hear new Gaga!”

      Are we still having the Lady Gaga/Madonna discussion? I don’t believe Lady Gaga is copying Madonna.

      HOWEVER, I am completely convinced that Madonna has a 51% share interest in Lady Gaga, Inc. So…

      Okay, apparently you’re all blind, because that is quite obviously Madonna. Can you people not see the obvious 50-year-old aged skin? Sheesh.

      She has really moved her image to a whole new level of commercialization. Gotta give it to her. But I’m still not a fan of her music.

      I am still not speaking to Gaga. Until she stops wearing the fur of dead animals!

      @whatisthis: I heart your elegant troll. Some people just don’t appreciate sarcasm. And you’re right. It’s obvious to me that Madonna, in a fit of professional rivalry, has had extensive plastic surgery to look like Lady Gaga and bribed queerty to post her picture. I’m mean, duh.

      I can’t believe the people who took the replies of the comments that said it was Madonna seriously lol.

      “Gaga’s existence as a cultural interface”

      LOL what a joke! I may start introducing myself that way.
