HIT MACHINE Lady Gaga is half-woman, half-motorcycle, and all pop royalty

On the heels of the leak of latest single “Judas,” Lady Gaga revealed the cover image for her forthcoming album Born This Way in a series of tweets yesterday and today.

(The reveal of Gaga’s album artwork has become something of an event in itself.) As you probably expect, the image, shown here, is one clearly intended to make you think and, maybe, wonder a bit: It depicts Gaga as something of a metal minotaur, part human and part…motorcycle? Yup, part motorcycle.

It’s a striking collage, and maybe not one that was very expected. But then again, what is the one thing you can expect with Gaga? Exactly: the unexpected. A follow-up tweet this morning revealed the cover for the deluxe edition of her album, too, which is basically just a close-up on Gaga’s face from the minotaur photo. It seems to project the idea of: Rarrr!

Do you like the Born This Way cover art? Think it’s scary? A joke? Too much? Not enough? Share your thoughts in the comments below, please.
