Lady Gaga Goes Shirtless in NYC; Announces ‘ARTPOP’ Release


What better way to beat the heat than taking your clothes off? Lady Gaga, no stranger to controversy or rebellious fashion, did just that on Thursday (July 11) when she was spotted in New York City with a black lace bra, pencil skirt and combat boots (above). It looks as though the outspoken songstress is back to fighting shape after embracing some extra curves during her hiatus.

Gaga has finally announced the November 11 release of ARTPOP, her highly anticipated fourth album. Although little has been said about her latest musical creation, we do know that a single will premiere on August 19 and fans can preorder the LP starting September 1. In her latest Facebook post, Gaga also says the album will include an app, similar to Jay-Z’s Samsung deal and blend all aspects of her career.

“ARTPOP musically mirrors Gaga’s creative process as she passes through the medium of each artist she collaborates with, scoring a blueprint on her journey. The result, a ‘rage’ of electronic passion and fury, defining each artistic process from beginning to end, ARTPOP could mean anything,” she says.
