Lady Gaga has gone nude for the cover of her new album, “ARTPOP.”

The pop superstar commissioned celebrated artist Jeff Koons to create a sculpture of herself for the project’s artwork, and the finished product was unveiled on Monday.

The cover features a blonde-wigged Gaga sitting with her legs spread open around a large, mirror-polished blue ball as she covers her breasts with her hands.

Sharing the image on her Twitter.com page, the singer writes, “FULL ARTPOP ALBUM COVER.’One second I’m a Koons, then suddenly the Koons is me!'”.

The sculpture itself is set to be displayed as part of a special art show celebrating the November release of ARTPOP.

The “Applause” hitmaker is no stranger to stripping off – she’s previously disrobed for numerous fashion photo shoots and went completely naked for a promo video for performance artist Marina Abramovic this summer.
