Art, music, and pop-culture fusion are a few of the words that come to mind when describing the experience of Lady Gaga’s concert for the iTunes Music Festival. She gave the little monsters everything including seven new tracks off her upcoming album, ARTPOP, set to drop November 11th. The show blurred the line between visual art and music as Lady Gaga had multiple on-stage costume changes, high energy dancing, and out of this world conceptual art.
The monsters raised their hands and swayed to the music drinking in the moment of being given a worldwide premier of new tracks from their Pop Diva. The ARTPOP single was a haunting melody of love which Gaga sang in a mermaid-esque costume drawing in the crowd with every note. Juxtapose to this singles pop feel, “Aura”, featured a darker mood and rave music. Lady Gaga hung mid-air in a cage for part of the song then was released by one of her dancers to break into hardcore choreography. Lady Gaga’s iTunes performance pushed boundaries of taste and expectation of her as a performer with each new song she performed. From dancers in pig masks, the mid-drift bearing outfits, the ridiculous energy it took to pull it all off and imagination of Lady Gaga put on a show for the iTunes Music Festival.
Do you love it or hate it? Regardless, you will be talking about her; Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) knows exactly how to keep it current. New singles from the ARTPOP album performed included “Jewels and Dreams”, a hip hop single featuring Atlanta rapper T.I., “Sex Dreams” , “Manicure” and a ballad “I Wanna Be With You”! The iTunes music festival is set to run the entire month of September with Justin Timberlake, Elton John and Katy Perry.
