While U2 once sang that nothing changes on New Year's day, we did get to ring in the year with a new picture of Lady Gaga's ass which she kindly twittered across the universe:
Lady Gaga's Ass
The immediately infamous buttock shot was used as a promo opportunity to announce the dates of Lady Gaga's new album, Born This Way. The date for the single Born This Way (lyrics) release is 13 February while the Born This Way album is due for release on the 23rd of the same month.
The nude behind picture was photographed by well known British fashion photographer, Mr Nick Knight, who has previously worked with the crazy pixie Björk and Antony Hegarty. Gaga is not known for being shy with her body, check out Gaga's infamous meat bikini or when she got her kit out at Lollapalooza.
The image Gaga released may, or may not be, the album cover. Time will tell. Meanwhile, enjoy the lyrics to You and I. If that doesn't grab you, check out the time Lady Gaga appeared in the Sopranos TV show!
