Lady Gaga , 'ARTPOP' (11/11)
Expect the unexpected from Lady Gaga's fourth LP. "She does not have to please anyone," says Zedd, the German DJ-producer who worked on several potential tracks. "We do whatever we want, and we don't have to make a song that's three minutes and 30 seconds just to fit the radio." Gaga has been working on the project nonstop – even after a hip injury forced her to cancel tour dates. "She wasn't going to just lay in bed and have a morphine drip and pass out for three months," adds DJ White Shadow, who also contributed to the LP. "She doesn't sit down. She doesn't chill."
