ArtPop

Sophia Vergara has machine gun breasts! Lady Gaga has her first acting appearance as La Chameleón! Michelle Rodriguez has a bada** eye patch and looks like you just don't want to mess with her (what's new). Charlie Sheen is the president of the U.S.... You read that right. Mel Gibson is... well he's Mel Gibson.

This Grindhouse inspired lyric video not only highlights all of the best aspects of the film Machete Kills, directed by Robert Rodriguez, but it also shows us a glimpse of the multi-talents through Gaga's performance. This follow up looks promising with an all-star cast and an overall creatively out-there idea.

Produced by Zedd, Aura is a peculiar addition to Gaga's repertoire. Check out the video below and let me know what you think!

This is a great move for her career. After delivering the Monster's Ball tour and really going out there to say the least, Lady Gaga reveals herself from her roots, where it all began. She's making a move towards having a better connectivity towards where she came from and the variety of genre's put into the album as a whole will provide an interesting tour I am sure. Whether you are a Lady Gaga fan or not, you cannot deny she has a talent for art which rightfully titles her album, ArtPop. After her VMA performance for Applause, it's easy to see just how detail oriented she is in her work. From the frantic-acting during the song to provide imagery of just how she feels all of the time, having to keep up, to the imagery of allowing the audience see the many transformations one must go through to remain a spectacle to the public eye. I am excited to see what is in store for this upcoming tour and album along with all of the outwardly distinctive music videos that will come with each popular song. She's got a great year coming ahead, hopefully a few more Grammy's will be in her near future!


DON'T FORGET! 

If you didn't get the chance to check out Gaga at the iTunes Festival, PLEASE watch below... She put together an entire concert and delivers it flawlessly. A true piece of "Artpop". Plus, she reveals most songs listed on the track list above :)!

Overall, after watching the iTunes film festival below, it seems as though her artist angle in this new album is to try and attack most genre's the industry has to offer. While successful at most, there are some interesting sounds produced that I don't quiet understand. With her success as an artist and obsessive "monsters", Lady Gaga clearly will deliver a packed punch that will surely stream across the array of outputs there are out there to offer.
