  • Lady Gaga unveiled her new album cover today designed by none other than media art darling Jeff Koons. The cover features a life-like sculpture of Gaga naked, cut with images of Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and as a nod to Koons’ stainless-steel balloon animals a metallic, blue ball rests between the singers legs. The sculpture will be on show for fans to see at the album release party in November. LATimes
