New ink, new album? (littlemonsters.com)Lady Gaga is suffering for her art. On Friday, the "Edge of Glory" singer revealed her 10th tattoo, the word "ARTPOP" on her right forearm, in a photo she posted on her LittleMonsters.com social media site. "New ink new album," she wrote as the caption, leading many to think that will be the name of her upcoming third album, which is set to come out next year. Similarly, Gaga got a unicorn inked on her left thigh in 2010 to commemorate her Born This Way album months before its May 2011 release. On Friday, she also posted what appears to be a lyric from one of her new songs, possibly called "ARTPOP." "We could we could belong together ARTPOP," it said.
Gaga, 26, has had the title of her next album kicking around since at least December, when she told MTV, "I've started writing it and I have the name for it and all the concepts are beginning to flourish and take place. I'm excited to put it out, but it's not done yet. So, I'll put it out when it's done."
The singer has been recording the new material while on the road for her Born This Way Ball world tour, which will resume in Europe on August 13 and continue through the rest of the year. Her co-manager Vincent Herbert recently revealed that the new songs are "just insane … it's just going to be a great record. Look out for the unexpected, when it comes to her. I'm very excited. We're doing it on the road right now, so it's very hard, but it's going to be great."
