Lady Gaga celebrated the release of her brand new album ARTPOP with the aid of a flying dress - believed to be the world's first! - at New York's Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Dubbed the artRAVE, Gaga opened with “Aura,” that same way the ARTPOP album does, and the unveiling of new pieces by modern artist Jeff Koons.

She also unveiled a piece by Marina Abromovic (previously known for coaxing Lady Gaga nude through the woods), and went all out musically, as always.

The highlight, though, was one of Gaga’s most spectacular entrances yet. A “flying dress” called “Volantis” - essentially a wearable jet pack - carried her in.

Check out this clip of the thing below, it's something else:

Lady Gaga recently announced that she will sing in outer space the year after next. Perhaps she can blast off into the stratosphere wearing this thing?

As for the live performances during the artRAVE?

Lady Gaga is, or at least was, more than happy to ruffle Madonna's feathers over her hit song "Born This Way," she reveals in an interview with Attitude.

"I have to be really honest, I was completely kind of floored that Madonna was singing my song on her stage every night!" Mother Monster recalled.

"I'm not thinking about anybody but me and my fans when I'm on stage."

Madonna took to performing a mashup of "Born This Way" and "Express Yourself" (her old hit) during live concerts last year, as a means of making a point.

The songs  share a similar beat and melody, but Gaga says "the fact that I was on her mind at all ... I mean, Madonna's ... she’s Madonna. I looked up to her for a long time."

Lady Gaga is preparing to deliver an out-of-this-world performance the year after next. The ARTPOP singer will take her act to the cosmos in 2015.

The "Dope" performer, 27, will blast off in a Virgin Galactic ship and belt out a single track during the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in New Mexico.

Yes, she'll be performing live on a shuttle from outer space. Cue the obligatory "can we leave her there" jokes from the celebrity gossip peanut gallery.

"She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere," says a source, who adds that the diva's glam squad will join her in the shuttle.

Zero G Colony is a three-day event set to take place at New Mexico's Spaceport America, featuring world-class entertainment and cutting-edge technology.

Lady Gaga and her longtime manager Troy Carter have parted ways, according to a new report. The duo has been together since her rise to fame in 2007.

Neither camp has confirmed the split, but it could be one explanation for Gaga's YouTube Music Awards performance, which was raw and filled with tears.

The duo's working relationship involved a pretty even split between creative and business, with Gaga controlling most of her brand's creative decisions.

Carter handled the business end, and together, along with Vince Herbert, her A&R handler, the pop star sold upward of 20 million albums worldwide.

Her new album, ARTPOP, comes out November 11.

Lady Gaga's performance of "Dope" was one of the highlights of the first ever YouTube Music Awards on Sunday, and not for the reasons you might expect.

There were no dramatic effects. No pomp and circumstance. No hint of Lady Gaga nude ... except in the emotional, stripped-down, raw musical sense.

The Mother Monster's plaintive piano ballad showcased her magnificent musical talents as she opened up about "Dope" and the perils of drug addiction.

With lyrics like "I feel so low from living high" and "Toast one last puff / And two last regrets / Three spirits and / Twelve lonely steps," the message was clear.

The chorus from the song, which hit the web late last week, felt like a mournful plea for forgiveness from her fans, who she tells, "I need you more than dope."

Lady Gaga insists she is in fact bisexual, despite claims of some critics that she milks such speculation for attention or to keep herself shrouded in mystery.

Unlike many stars who have been the subject of gay rumors, the singer has been open about them and has struggled to convince people they are  true.

Lady Gaga hermaphrodite story aside, she's been candid from the start about going both ways, even admitting that "Poker Face" is about her bisexuality.

Gaga talked about it on Barbara Walters' "Most Fascinating People" special. She recently told Andy Cohen that she has taken "a few dips in the lady pond."

However, some people just aren't satisfied.

Lady Gaga has just announced her next single, and it's "Dope." No, literally, it is. That will be the next track you'll hear off her upcoming album ARTPOP.

"'Dope' will be available 12:01am local time Nov 4th," she wrote on her Twitter. "Final song available for purchase before ARTPOP release Nov 11."

The exciting news was capped off with a snapshot of the cover art:

As you can see, Mother Monster is shown in sheer underwear, thigh-high boots, an oversized, boxy blazer and a floppy hat. No Lady Gaga nude this time.

Her exaggerated, grill-filled smile more than makes up for it though.

Lady Gaga is in mourning this week after losing a loved one near and dear to her heart: Beloved childhood dog Alice, who passed away at the age of 17.

On Tuesday, October 29, the 27-year-old pop star confirmed the death on Twitter, explaining, "We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel."

"My daddy is so sad," she Tweeted, "we all are, lost a member of our family."

"I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home ... 17 years she held on, so many memories. Nothing beats family."

"I remember her laying my bed, she knew when I was sad, or when I was sick ... I should have been there. I just pray that Alice found her wonderland."

Kelly Osbourne is ready to bury the hatchet with Lady Gaga, with whom she has been involved in an ongoing feud. She issued an apology on Twitter.

"@ladygaga I acted like a child last night. Just not into publicity stunts call me & we will end this like adults I don't want 2 fight anymore," she wrote.

  • Kelly Osbourne Body
  • Lady Gaga Shell Bikini

The A-Listers' lengthy beef was rekindled after Gaga visited the X Factor UK set and posed with Kelly's mother Sharon and a birthday cake for Kelly.

That peace offering didn't sit well with Kelly. At all.

"Not to be ungrateful but why send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the would away? #JustSendItToME #LoveNotWar," she Tweeted.

Lady Gaga fancies herself a performance artiste, so it's never surprising when she pulls an outrageous stunt in the name of putting on a show to remember.

Still, performing completely buck a$$ naked? Live on stage?

That would be a new one… even for the Mother Monster.

Gaga performed a surprise set at London nightclub G-A-Y this past weekend, performing her new song "Venus" and kicking off the show as a ghost.

Or something. Soon enough, in any case, the garb came off.
