Does Lady Gaga’s New Tattoo Reveal New Album Name?
Lady Gaga has said that she plans to reveal the title of her upcoming album in September, but is there a clue in her new tattoo?
Gaga posted a photo on her new social networking site LittleMonsters.com showing off her new ink. it's on her right arm and it says "ARTPOP" in mirror script, meaning that the word looks backwards, but when she looks in the mirror, it'll appears written the right way. She captioned the photo "New ink new album."
In addition, Gaga posted a photo that displays the words "we could we could belong together ARTPOP" on a flesh-colored background.
So, is "Artpop" actually the title of the new album? Is it the title of one of her new songs? Is it simply a word that describes the sound of the new album? Gaga didn't say explicitly, but she did tweet on Sunday, "make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title, *its all in the details*." This would seem to suggest that the album title is, in fact, ARTPOP.
In a chat on LittleMonsters.com, Gaga wrote, by way of explaining her new concept, "Pop art was a movement in the '70s that is still alive now. Artpop is the music I've been making since The Fame but the irony of the words being similar is on purpose. ARTPOP could mean anything."
Since Gaga isn't an art historian, we'll let her slide on her incorrect statement about pop art. It's actually been around since the late 1950s.
