Lady Gaga Releases ‘Born This Way’ Album Cover

Hot on the heels of her new single, 'Judas,' Lady Gaga on Friday released the cover art for her upcoming album 'Born This Way'

As one might guess, the cover is everything from awesome to downright bizarre, as it depicts the pop superstar as part-human, part-motorcycle (yep).

According to her Twitter, the cover was designed by Nick Knight and the Haus of Gaga. 'Born This Way' hits shelves on May 23.

Check out the cover after the jump.

Rebecca Black’s Next Single Will Be Called ‘LOL’

Are you sick of Rebecca Black yet? If the answer to that question is "yes," prepare yourself, because the 13-year-old Internet celebrity isn't going anywhere just yet.

In a new interview with The Sun, Black revealed she is not only working on a follow-up single to 'Friday,' she's also working on an album -- yes, an album.

The new single is called "LOL" (but of course), a "text-message themed anthem" that the Sun says is "every bit as ... catchy" as 'Friday.'

"You think you are bringing me down and making me not want to do this any more. But you're making me stronger and want to do it even more," said Black.
