It pains me that Gaga wrote like 100 songs for ARTPOP but we’ve only heard 17.
When will your fave….
Lady Gaga “Heavy Metal Lover“
Let’s raise hell in the streets, drink beer, and get into trouble
it makes me sad to think there are people in this world who haven’t heard heavy metal lover
The inspiration behind the ARTPOP cover:
- “The Birth Of Venus" by Botticelli: The goddess of Love, emerged from the sea as a fully grown woman, arriving at the sea-shore.
- “Apollo and Daphne" by Gian Lorenzo Bernini: The battle between chastity (Daphne) and sexual desires (Apollo), and how Daphne had to sacrifice her body and become a laurel tree, which can be seen as an act of eternal chastity. Apollo crafted himself a wreath out of her laurel branches, turning her symbol of purity into a cultural symbol for him and other poets and musicians.
- “The Gazing Ball" by Jeff Koons: Gazing into one of these balls, you see yourself and your environment curving around to center on you, the globe reduces everything - the entire world, potentially - to a backdrop highlited by your solitary presence. You’re the subject and so there is no need to recall the significance of Art.
