Lady Gaga Announces New Album Title (It Matches Her Tattoo)

If you were curious about the title of Lady Gaga's next album, the answer has been right there on her arm.

The Mother Monster took to Twitter to announce the title of her upcoming album, which is the very formatting-specific ARTPOP. Yes, you need to capitalize it, because Lady Gaga said so. "Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title," she tweeted.

Yes, ma'am.

Interestingly, most of Gaga's fans already knew the title before the announcement, they just didn't know that they knew. Gaga tweeted a picture of herself last week, with the word ARTPOP tattooed on her forearm.

So what does it mean? The answer might lie in the fact that Gaga referred to ARTPOP as her "new album/project" and not just as an album. Perhaps ARTPOP is a term that Gaga is coining to describe the brand of pop music that she does, which relies on spectacle and visual design as much as it does on the music?
