Andy Warhol once said that in the future, we’d all be famous for 15 minutes – but then, the man that popularized Pop art never met pop provocateur Lady Gaga, who’s coming up on five years in the pop culture spotlight.
It’s no secret that the singer takes many cues from Warhol (and is openly a huge fan of his); nowhere is this admiration more on display than her fourth album, titled ARTPOP.
Gaga has said of the title, “For ARTPOP, I instantly had an initial cosmetic experience with words, so I spent some time reflecting on exactly what it is that I wanted to say. When I’m thinking about the title for an album, I think about the marketing, I think about the cultural implication of the words, what the words mean. How the words will change the meaning after the music has been put out as well as the visuals. I spent some time and I kept seeing those two words, “art” and “pop,” put together in a reverse way, instead of Pop Art, which is the way I had always seen it. And then quite quickly, the more work that I did, ARTPOP became something that had a nice ring, you know?”
