Womens Wear Daily got the exclusive single artwork for Lady Gaga‘s song, “Applause.”
“I want to know. What do you see?” asks Lady Gaga.
The image in question is the cover of Gaga’s new single “Applause,” which is the lead single from her forthcoming album ARTPOP.
The photo of Gaga was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
According to WWD, “the photograph is colorful, emotional and theatrical, capturing Gaga with a Pierrot-esque face, her rainbow of makeup artfully smeared and her hair covered under a head wrap. ”
When asked to explain the image, Gaga replied, “I need to get your reading first,” she says. “Otherwise it’s not art.”
ARTPOP hits stores on November 11.
