Artpop drops today! But considering Lady Gaga has never been one to release an album the traditional way, this time she's adding in a smartphone app that's supposedly "a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion, and technology with a new interactive worldwide community - 'the auras.'" Gaga explained the app on her Facebook page further, saying "Altering the human experience, we bring ARTculture into POP in a reverse Warholian expedition." This means users can build your own art projects, chat with other fans, and basically live in Lady Gaga's dreamed-up universe. Whoa. Get more details here. (The Guardian)
