After fashioning outfits from meat and seashells, Lady Gaga's latest get-up could double as a transportation device.
The singer titillated attendees at her "artRave" event in Brooklyn on Sunday - thrown to support her newest album, "ARTPOP" - with a flying dress called "Volantis."
Created by Gaga's TechHaus team and Studio XO, the contraption is "essentially a vehicle," Gaga explained to onlookers at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. She then climbed into the hovercraft-esque "dress," which bears the curvacious silhouette of a woman, and demonstrated how the outfit can propel an individual off the ground and into flight.
"We realized her potential for the world," Gaga said of Volantis on Sunday, according to MTV. "Right now she's priceless. The money thing is really not me. What we're trying to say is, we can do anything. Imagine the possibilities."
The pop star's "artRave" event also introduced the partygoers to her new album, which officially arrived on Monday. Gaga has steadily previewed tracks from "ARTPOP" following the release of her first single, "Applause," in August, but those in attendance at "artRave" got to see the singer perform some of the music live:
Critics so far have been tepid about "ARTPOP," with Consequence of Sound wondering in its review if we've "come to expect too much" of the Mother Monster.
"At her peak, her mishmash of European dance music, American pop, ‘80s Madonna, glam Bowie, hair metal, Giorgio Moroder, and The Killers sounded both reverently referential and ahead of its time" - but with "ARTPOP," "Gaga has added only a few by-the-numbers modern elements to that initial formula ... That refusal to experiment as wildly as she once did reads as fear, and a pop star who’s afraid ends up sounding like the once-weird Lady Gaga does on ARTPOP: boring and normal."
USA Today, meanwhile, commended Gaga for her "latest extravagant exploration of her own fame ... but that doesn't mean it's consistently entertaining."
Billboard agrees that "ARTPOP" doesn't always live up to Gaga's ambition, but thinks that the album's imperfections reflect the imperfections of its creator.
"When Gaga balances these skyward designs with dynamic songwriting - when she successfully mixes the 'art' with the 'pop,' if you will - the results are often euphoric," like with the album's "Dope" and "Gypsy" being two examples. "Some of the more convoluted tracks sputter out before Gaga can carry her vision through, but even the weakest moments on 'ARTPOP' are so carefully built and ardently imagined that one cannot help but admire the effort."
Most disgusted ho on planet
When I read, "takes flight", I thought she was smoking pot again.
When she squirts on stage, I'll go to the show
Show us your love nub woman!
Lady Gaga's 15 minutes of fame are up. Given she is not particularly talented and has never really had anything new to say (didn't Warhol talk about fame 50 years ago?), this is not a bad thing.
You obviously don't know what you're talking about babes.
And her time is up? She was recovering from surgery for 6 months and placed 2nd on Forbes most successful right behind Oprah.
She is taking a different turn in her career, one that doesn't need generic pop songs or flashy behavior
Buy ARTPOP <3
Love how in the span of a year she's gone from being edgy and controversial to sad and boring thanks to Miley Cyrus' antics. So how is Gaga going to try and stay in the spotlight now? Shoot ping pong balls out her V@g at the next music awards?

She has some crazy outfits, no doubt.

Bristol honey, can I raid your hamper for some used panties? I'd be soooo grateful.
When I get high, I like to blow some of the smoke (or have someone else do it), up my v@gina in the hopes that I'll get just a little more high.
What kind of person posts this kind of cr ap? Do they really think it is funny?
No one really knows.
Duh. A stoned person would (and did) post this stuff.
Apparently that guy knows. I stand corrected.
