Gaga and the Art of Pop
Madonna emerged as Billboard's 2012 MVP, but it was her feuding frenemy Lady Gaga who secured their award for the Most Anticipated Album of 2013 for Artpop. And it's not hard to see why. Living up to her typically ambitious self, Mother Monster's new Artpop will be a 'multimedia experience,' released with an iPad app and possibly split into two volumes. She's apparently written 'like 50 songs' for the impending release, which will consist of a radio-friendly volume and an experimental volume, released six months apart. She's not quite sure which tracks will ultimately rise to the top, but our bets are on the rumoured 'Telephone' sequel.
