Lady Gaga has revealed an eye-catching cover for her coming "Artpop" album designed by visual artist Jeff Koons. The cover shows a life-like sculpture of a nude Gaga spliced with images of Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus. " Between her splayed legs rests a metallic, blue ball, a nod to Koons' stainless-steel balloon animals. "I'm nervous&excited to share something that's such a piece of my heart," Gaga tweeted before releasing the album art. "Something I cherish deeply.

Almost immediately after she deposited herself in a corner booth at L'Espalier, the restaurant at Boston's Mandarin Oriental Hotel on the December afternoon after the first American date of her Monster Ball tour, Lady Gaga made a confounding statement. "I don't see myself as ever being like anybody else," said the 23-year-old known to her mom (eating lunch nearby) as Stefani Germanotta. "I don't see myself as an heir." Yet there she was, in a blond Hollywood bob and black tuxedo-bra combo much like the costumes Madonna wore 20 years ago, discussing a show that conjures the spirits of Michael Jackson, David Bowie and the punk-rock drag queens of downtown New York and promoting music -- the newly expanded edition of her 2008 debut album, "The Fame," greatly enriched by eight new songs and repackaged as "The Fame Monster" -- that pays blatant homage to ABBA, Queen, Eurodisco and Marilyn Manson.

Lady Gaga has paid tribute to her friend and frequent collaborator Terry Richardson in light of his mother's recent death. Richardson, a photographer who captures Gaga behind the scenes so often that the pair released a coffee table book of candid images, announced Tuesday that his mother, Annie Lomax, had passed away. Gaga showed support using a favorite medium: her hair. "I did it for u Terry," Gaga wrote in a post to, including a photo, above, of her head shaved in the back to resemble Richardson's hairline.

The following are some of the Lady Gaga-branded items available for purchase in her official Web store: a USB drive, headphones, tote bags, stickable "body beadz," Christmas cards, sunglasses, temporary tattoos and Bluetooth sets. Noticeably lacking? Action figures. Now, efforts to develop a new Gaga action figure have hit a serious snag. Multiple outlets have reported that MGA Entertainment, the company behind the popular, snotty Bratz doll toy line, has filed a $10-million lawsuit against the pop star.

Did you hear Lady Gaga and One Direction get booed at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday? For those tuning in from home, the boos may have been muffled by "woohoos" and audience cheers. But they were definitely there for both artists, although their authenticity was not. Lady Gaga opened the show with a wig-enhanced performance of her latest single, "Applause. " The visual singer started off garbed in an extreme nun's habit, fulfilled several costume changes and didn't break her focus throughout her performance despite chiding from the audience.

She asked for applause , and she got it -- though perhaps quite a bit less than she'd hoped for. Lady Gaga's "Artpop" entered the Billboard 200 on Wednesday at No. 1, the singer's second chart-topper following "Born This Way" in 2011. Whereas "Born" sold 1.1 million copies in its first week in sales -- thanks in part to an Amazon promotion that offered the album for 99 cents -- "Artpop" moved merely 258,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That wasn't terribly more than Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," which dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 on second-week sales of 210,000.
