To hype her highly anticipated third studio album, ARTPOP, we have already seen Lady Gaga nude in a photo spread for the upcoming issue of V Magazine.

And what a photo that was. Goodness.

At the same time, acclaimed fashion photographers Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadi filmed a short video teasing ARTPOP's upcoming release.

In the 23-second teaser, a sensual, still natural-looking Mother Monster seductively licks what appears to be a monster hand, we think. Take a look!

The first single for ARTPOP, whose title remains a mystery, drops August 19.

The album, issued in digital form via an application developed by her Haus of Gaga's technology division, TechHouse, will come out November 11.

Lady Gaga may be known for wrapping herself in elaborate costumes during most public appearances (meat dress, anyone?), but the singer goes in the complete opposite direction for a spread in this month's V.

She's naked. Totally, completely, 100% naked.

In an Instagram tease posted by the star’s collaborators, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadi, we get a look at just how much Gaga bares for the magazine... as well as how closely she shaves:

Lady Gaga apparently fears that a lawsuit involving two of the people who discovered her will be the end of her ... or at least she's acting like it.

Gaga in Glasses

The background: former Gaga collaborator and close friend Wendy Starland sued Gaga's former boyfriend and producer Rob Fusari back in 2010.

Starland claims Fusari cheated her out of revenues she felt she was owed for her role in discovering Gaga, who wants to keep this all sealed forever.

Gaga filed legal papers pleading with the court to seal information in the Starland-Fusari case, calling the matter "sensitive, private, and personal."

She claims that if the info went public, it would "inflict significant personal and professional harm upon" her. So what could this information entail?

Aside from confirmation of that great Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumor from a few years back, what about her would even be shocking at this point?

After a few months on the shelf following hip surgery, Lady Gaga returned to the spotlight this week to sing the National Anthem at NYC's Gay Pride Parade.

The LGBT community is, of course, near and dear to Gaga's heart, and she let them know it Saturday with this rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" ...

“It’s my LGBT friends and fans who always said to me, 'I knew Lady Gaga when...'” she said. “Well, look who the star is now. Now I get to say I knew you when."

"When you suffered, when you felt unequal, when you felt there was nothing to look forward to,” she added as she launched into the song with a rainbow flag.

At the end, she changed up the lyrics a bit, replacing “star-spangled banner” with "star-spangled flag of pride” and “home of the brave” with “home for the gays.”

A French artist is suing Lady Gaga for plagiarism.

Orlan, who's been active in the French art scene for decades, claims Gaga basically aped her style, and has a list of reasons why this is the case.

Gaga 4 Gaga

Notably, Gaga, like Orlan, takes a stage name, and employs visual and conceptual references to Catholic imagery, the human body, and celebrity.

That sounds broad, and without a doubt it is.

Yet there's an entire Tumblr dedicated to the similarities between the two, Gagaorlan, and in a 1993 Art in America feature, Orlan is described as such:

Kelly Osbourne is apparently unafraid of a few (million) monsters.

The television personality flashes her bra and her cleavage on the cover of the new issue of Cosmopolitan - but it's what she says about Lady Gaga inside the magazine that is making headlines.

Kelly Osbourne Cosmopolitan Cover

It all started earlier this year, when Gaga penned a letter to Osbourne and labeled her a "bully" for criticizing celebrity fashion choices for a living.

Sharon Osbourne then stuck up for her daughter and went off on Gaga, calling the singer a "hypocrite and an attention seeker."

And now Kelly has gone ahead and dropped the H Bomb once more herself.

Lady Gaga may be on the shelf recovering from hip surgery, but the pop star is looking forward to a planned album of duets with Tony Bennett.

The 86-year-old crooner also dropped some hints about his highly anticipated collaboration with Gaga, which she first announced in January.

"We have it all worked out already on paper," the legendary singer said, telling The Philadelphia Inquirer about the duo's "big swing album."

Bennett also added that he was drawn to working with Lady Gaga, of all people, because "she's quite different." Well, that's one way to put it.

The two had previously teamed up on "The Lady Is a Tramp" for his 2011 album, Duets II (above), and have hinted at another collaboration ever since.

Looks like those plans are coming to fruition!
