The singer explained that it came to her when she was drinking a bottle of water. SOUNDBITE: Lady Gaga, Singer, saying (English) "So I was like drinking Perrier one day and I looked down and I saw, Oh my goodness, Andy Warhol was on the Perrier bottle. And it was sort of like a flash. I realized that already in culture there was an inferno turning round and round. 'Pop art' became 'Artpop' and now the soup can art is on the soup can." Koons providing some of the ART of ARTPOP and collaborated with Gaga to create a massive sculpture that also graces the cover of the new album.
