Lady Gaga debuts 'Born This Way' album cover art [Poll]

April 18, 2011 | 12:57 pm

Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' album cover Lady Gaga debuted the cover art for her highly anticipated "Born This Way" album to mixed reviews -- apparently she wants people to believe she was born as a motorcycle hybrid.

"Original Born This Way on Left, Special Edition Album on right. Can't wait for you to hear music! X," she tweeted with a picture of the art Sunday.

The album, which hits stores May 23, will front a black-and-white photo by Nick Knight with the Haus of Gaga of Mother Monster transformed into the bike. Yep, that's her upper body between the handlebars and her arms holding the front wheel. And she's also baring her pearly whites. The only punch of color comes from Gaga's bright red lips.

The special-edition cover is a closeup -- if you're into that vampy-motorcycle sort of thing.

But the reviews from fans were mixed, with the backlash coming soon after the pushback from Christian conservatives over the content of Gaga's newest single, "Judas," which she released last week. Here are some fan thoughts (uncensored, be warned if you click) on the cover art:

cutecherry92: i wanna see more color though

Nymphacissa: stupid

supermarlem: can't wait mother monster am soo anxious 5+23+11...LOVE U, KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK. :)

NanUllrich: OH ...! Forget it, change it now!

aadrienneGD: Sorry Gaga, but this on left is so BAD. :(

Chrystalshatter: The rise and fall of this star puppet happened faster than what I predicted, maybe this is a joke

YuandHok: change it,we want a beautiful one!

zuziioo: Terrible. GaGa copys Xtina. She is a half-robot (motor) on the cover. Xtina was a half-robot on the cover of "Bionic"

dinosai23: creepy....i like it

alllllwin: WE KNOW THE MUSIC IS COUNT....BUT THE COVER IS LOOK LIKE CHEAPPPPP...........NO AVANT GARDE OR AMAZING THING ...GAGA!!

CarmenLovesGaga: I love the idea, you're a motorbike, which people ride. Lol. I prefer the 1st one but will most likely buy both! :) Awesome. I just hope it's no betrayal.

Hmm, what do you think of the cover art? Tell us in comments?
