looks like crap.

# 5

I hate this. It’s like she does not care about the whole message of the album. Why the hell you she be born as a motocycle? This doesn’t make sense. I’m a huge Gaga fan but this is the first time she very disappoints me. I hate everything about this. Moreover, the font looks stupid! It looks like “happy birthday” ballons. The cover doesn’t even say her name.

No Gaga we need more than this.

I’m pretty sure this is a joke. Or I really hope it is. Hopefully she will tweet the real one in a bit.

Lady Gaga, what the heck were you thinking. Surely you have enough money to hire a design team get you better font then that, let alone the cover not making send at all.

You were born as a motorcycle? There are so many better concepts you could have gone with. I’m tired of you trying to sell yourself by “shocking people”

We are over it.

Do something genuine.

She looks funny on the cover. Yeah, she is a joke. ILUMINATI B*TCH

Poor McQueen. The way she throws around his name and rips off his vision.

there is a reason Grace Jones refused to work with her…

Hello I’m a fan from Brazil and I just want to make a question. Who are you to judge the work of anyone with so ugly words? If you want respect you have to show some respect! Now you say that the cover it’s a crap but after a while the same people will say that is briliant.

i though that the pic for judas with her in the alienoid suit bending over is awesome but this is wierd
idk if shes kidding though i have a feeling this isnt the final cover

I’m scared of her, why does she use that as her cover album ? It looks so scary. Why doesn’t she just use something normal, being pretty like she used to.

Lol I’m sure this is a joke,,,, I mean it doesn’t even say her name

LMAO

worst cover album ever

I feel betrayed by this album cover. Judas also betrays me. We have been betrayed. This isn’t the real album cover…

Gaga, stop taking those drugs woman!!!! Just listened to Judas too and it’s such an ugly song!! Sorry no longer a fan. Just sooo sooo sorry!!

Huge Gaga fan, but this album cover is pretty bad…..I’m rather disappointed.

When I saw a leaked image of it I was hoping it was a joke. But now that it is confirmed to be it I feel disappointed. I LOVE Gaga, I’ve been to her concert multiple times and I’ve never been disappointed, but I’m kind of disappointed with this. The font seems kind of cheesy, cheap, and amateurish. The image itself looks weird. It looks like the tattoo on her left arm is gone and the image doesn’t give me any reflection of the meaning of the album. I loved the born this way single cover and she should have reflected something like that into this one. Hopefully Gaga reads and listens to her fans’ comments about this.

This is crap. The font is disgusting, poorly edited, and it might as well be comic sans. Why didn’t she use the font used on the born this way cover? It just looks really cheap and badly photoshopped. I love Lady Gaga and i hope this is a joke.

@Laura:

I completely agree. This is terrible. I don’t even think the actual music will be any good. Born this Way had to grow on me and Judas is terrible.

The cover represents the freedom she wishes to give to her fans. SHE WILL TAKE YOU AWAY.

There is more in meaning, but I won’t go any further.

I guess………

I am a HUGE Gaga fan and will always support her causes and what she does, but I just dont know about this album cover. It just doesnt make much sense? I get the whole born this way, be happy with who you are, dont chance for anyone, but whats up with a motorcycle? It doesnt make much sense. But then again, maybe it will make sense to us after we hear the rest of the tracks on the album?? Im not sure but I will definately be buying the album still!!! Duuuhhh!
Little Monsters forever!!!!! Paws up!

Im sure she will release a statement and explain that the motorcycle is a symbol of zooming away through the night with your thoughts when there is nobody to listen to you or something equally random and meaningless.

Yep . . I totally agree with everyone elses comments. What in the world is Gaga thinking with this cover?! It looks STRAIGHT UP AWFUL! I can’t get over the ugly font . . . why not use the beautiful font used on the Born This Way Single cover art?! Gaga . .. you usually amaze me with your cover art (still can’t get over how beautiful Bad Romance was) but this is pure crap.

sorry . . the truth hurts . . but this is coming from one of your biggest fans :)

I think she ROCKS! Call me blinded, call me stupid, but I think she looks amazing. I LOVE the cover and i WILL buy this album.
And if you hate her, you don’t understand her complexity. <3 Little Monster.

i am at a loss of words
i am a devoted monster and this is a horrible cover
wow i hope she changes it cuz this cover could go down in history as the worst album cover

i have a feeling ill wake up tomoro and she will put up a diff picture and say this was a joke

OMG!!! SHE HAS MADE MY LAME DAY!!!!!! FERREALS THAT COVER WAS A #EPICFAIL
shes NOW TOO GOOD to make A REAL GOOD BAD ASS COVER LOL nice try maybe next album will be better or WORSE LMFAO I LOVE how ppl are disliking her CUZ OF CYCLEGAGA XD

EffULadyCaCA @ 04/16/2011 at 4:22 am

WOOWWWWW! HOW VERY BOLD & DARING! sarcasm*

Wait, I think I get it, remember when Gaga was accused of being a man when the pictures of her on a motorcycle were released? Maybe this is her being touch and cheek about it. Just a theory. What do u think? I know she’s not stupid and would just release such a random image for her album cover for nothing.

Wait guys, I think I get it! Remember when pictures of Gaga were released of her getting off a motorcycle and they accused her of being a man. I think this is her being tongue and cheek about it. Just a theory. Gaga isn’t stupid and wouldn’t release such a random image for her album cover just for kicks.

I hope that motorcycle crashes

This is the first time i have been dissepointed at gaga, this album atwork is ugly and the font is rugly too, her previous albums cover have been amazing, cant she use the BTW single cover instead i like it soo much better.

Born This Way was ok song, and Judas is not so good, what happen to Gaga, her previous music was amazing, poker face, bad romance, i am worried.

This old witch oughta be boiled in oil.

what a flop

Britney Spears has updated her Femme Fatale album cover in response to Gaga’s Born This Way album cover: See it here: -> http://bit.ly/hoc3ar

I’m so sick of her. The novelty of it is over. She keeps doing the same thing over and over again. And her latest single is a really bad attempt at recreating bad romance. If she wants to stay relevant she should go away for a while and develop something fresh and new. She’s not reinventing herself, it’s more like recycling now.

This is ugly, badly designed, silly, and it better be a joke! Don’t start trying to explain what this silly image means, it got no meaning whatsoever, it’s pure stupidness, so please brainwashed fans just stop being stupid. She must be kidding! an ugly judas song followed by an ugly image. Does not seem like it’s gonna be a Gaga year! I’m glad that JLo and Britney made huge come back.

awful ! im a massive GaGa fan, but this is so cheesy and tacky , it just brings the whole album down, disappointed ! :( but i cant wait to hear the album ! :D

That has really put me off buying it now.

there is no meaning behind this…all i see is ****
**** behind her album cover, behind her new music…it’s just not good

@D. C.: hahaha that was funny. I like brits better lol.

lol
Oh my god I can’t stop laughing.

She is just trying WAY TOO HARD. Her voice is beautiful. Enough with the antics, please. Just sing already!

@Daniel: I totally agree! i dont get why all the haters must constantly waste their time commenting! if thei true gaga fans, then they should love and respect everything gaga does!

scary stupid

LET’S FACE IT SHE’S UGLY AS HELL.
SHE CAN ONLY BE THE WIERDO.

She is a Illuminati puppet, who doesn’t believe me should look it up. That’s why she is going crazy like this. First she was trying to be ”beautiful” so everyone would like her and now she is going this way so we can follow her sickeness.
I mean, is she a rolemodel for children? She uses drugs, licks on women’s p*ssy’s and than she tries to be so original. which she really isn’t.
Don’t be fooled by her appearence, she is trying to be someone she’s not. This is all PR and making us be her stupid ”monsters”
I only liked Just dance and Pokerface.. look what she has become. Who would even want to be with her or sleep wit her? Nobody from Hollywood.
Why don’t be see her pap pics around when she wakes up and stuff?

@yellow:

hahaha exactly !!

She want ROCK SO HARD !! she’s stupid puppet with no priginal ideas … This cover just show how she trying TOO HARD !!!! i hate her

It’s obviously a joke people. The font looks like it was made with WordArt, and it doesn’t even have her name on it. The real one is coming soon. :)

ewwwwwwwwww @ 04/16/2011 at 10:02 pm

she’s so effin fake, what a puke fest she is

The cover is as lame as the song Judas. Liked her previous work , but she is getting to weird for me!! Losing interest!!!

She is so completely different. It is, as though, it isn’t even her anymore. Used to be a fan. The first two songs from Born This Way Album is so blah. Stay off the drugs!

UGLY .Did you know what Ga Ga means stupid in the filipino language.

I loved the song Judas and the cover for Judas. Not a huge fan of this cover though. But nonetheless, I will buy a copy. Her music and her personality are amazing and that should be what counts. If this is truly the real cover, real fans will respect that because she is so excited about it and she worked hard on it. The people who are saying they are no longer fans or that they won’t be buying this, weren’t true fans in the first place. They’re the type of fans that only know an artist based on their looks and not the meaning behind the songs they write or who they really are. They’re also the type of fans that jump the bandwagon every time a new artist emerges. I have been a fan of Gaga for 2 years and thats not going to change. <3

Im a fake B Tch baby @ 04/17/2011 at 4:48 pm

I agree with all the Madonna accusations BUT she also goes around robbing pop stars from other countries. Gaga’s latest look is brought to you by turkish pop star gulsen bayraktar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TE3ytvlnvc4

i just hope this is some kind of joke, it can’t be that the cd cover… is just awful, with lack of sense, taste, just AWFULLLL

This album cover is so cheap i dont like it but ill buy it though i have some complains

I hated when the so called Mother monster came out!
she should of done somthing like the fame thats when she was good

Ok, we get it! You’re an artist, stop trying to prove it and please dissappear.

I LOVE IT LOVE YOU GAGA I JUST WOW WOW WOW I AM YOUR BIGGEST FAN LOVE THE SONG JUDAS AND ALL THE OTHERS JUST REMBER YOU WERE BORN TAT WAY LOVE YOU XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

first of all, for u who say it isnt original… when is she ever original.. quit freakin out over a n album art when the art doesnt actually matter.. i actually like it.. fits the music i think.. motorcycle and i think rock and hard beats.. thats what its been so far.. i LOVE the art and rly could care less what it is.. its her producers and haus of gaga that made the art by the way.. goodness sakes.. complain complain complain.. sit back and relax for a change. im tired of always hearing something negative to be said towards her..

Back off *******…. i think this album cover is genius. Who else would think of this?? its differant and so what… Its Art. Who gives a sh*t about the album cover anyway?? its what it sounds like not what it looks like. I love Edge of Glory, Hair and Judas. I carnt wait to listen to the rest of the album. I hope she brings out an acoustic album. She sounds much better live I carnt wait till shes touring the UK because il be shouting her name from the crowd …. BOOOOYAAAAA….!!!!!

Fast. & Hard I get it, half human, half machine.

in my 30's @ 06/10/2011 at 1:35 pm

kids kids,, dont take it to heart. This album cover is hilarious, not terrible! 10 years from now you will look back at this and have a really honest good belly laugh remembering your youth.. just enjoy it and stop taking it so seriously!

Tweeting is one way to easily grab attention. Not sure if her fans like to be called monsters though. Must be a new sense of humor. I’m sure kids won’t mind. Then you think about the title of the song. Makes you think right? I thought the lyrics was promoting equality. I’m moving closer to individuality.

AlfredAshford @ 12/21/2011 at 3:54 pm

lol, how nobody seems to “get” the album cover I don’t know…it’s simple to me…She’s basically portraying herself as a *****, but in a different way, as a motorcycle – to be “ridden”, by men, women and her fans and the business she is part of – as well as being part of the “machine” i.e. – the record industry, and if you believe the shock tactics bs, the Illuminati.

No doubt there’s probably a sexual element in there as well. A motorcycle, any engine in fact, gets “revved up”, which is similar to the human response of becoming excited about something or turned on.
