Lady Gaga and Jeff Koons came together in New York to create the cover art for her latest album ARTPOP. Koons designed a sculpture in which Lady Gaga appears to be giving birth to one of Koons' Gazing Balls. The piece also uses fragments of Sandro Botticelli's The Birth of Venus. The album cover design shows a mash-up of pop culture, music, fine art, and art history, blending the different spheres in explosive visual form.
