Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' album cover: Half Gaga, half machine

gaga-born-this-way-cover.jpgSo when Lady Gaga's talking about being "Born This Way," does she mean she's a Transformer?

Lady Gaga revealed the cover to her new album via Twitter on Saturday (April 16), and it's kind of freaky. The all-black cover (designed by Nick Knight "and the Haus of Gaga") features her head and arms morphing into a motorcycle. The album is scheduled for release on May 23.

The "Born This Way" art is a pretty big departure from her last two album covers. Both "The Fame" and "The Fame Monster" featured face-on photos of the artist, nothing like this new art. (Some of the chatter on message boards, in fact, is that it's a fake. Since her single "Judas" was just released, the reasoning goes, Gaga will betray her fans three times the way Judas betrayed Jesus.)

Gaga also revealed the name of another song on the album on Twitter overnight: "Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)."

What do you think of the album cover?
