After a brief news-making hiatus, pop diva Lady Gaga is back in the buzz with two stunning cover shots that has the world talking. The singer has not only triggered off a wave of response with her 'Born This Way' album cover but has also hit the headlines for her brash interview to British magazine, NME, accompanied by a jaw-dropping cover shot.

Continuing with the phased unveiling of the latest album, Lady Gaga Saturday revealed the 'Born This Way' album cover. The surreal album art, as MTV put it, showed a half-woman, half-motorcycle hybrid made of shining chrome and perfectly tousled blond hair. The album is set to hit the stores on May 23.

 The cover was unveiled by Gaga through a tweet. The Gaga-motorcycle hybrid cover sparked off a storm of argument, besides, of course, parodies.

Three days later, Gaga's second stunner hit the internet. NME magazine cover that read Lady Gaga Unzipped showed the pop singer clad in a full-body, see-through latex suit, complete with strategically placed zippers to cover her modesty NZHerald reported.

The cover came packaged with an interview of the eccentric star giving her critics a piece of her mind in the brashest way possible.

If you want me to be a manufactured act, you can f*ck off, she retaliated.

Comparing herself to John Lenon, Gaga remarked, I am perpetually unhappy with what I create. Even though I might tell you that 'Edge Of Glory' is a pop masterpiece, when it's all said and finished there will be things I dread, and every time I listen to it I'll hear them.

In John Lennon's Playboy interview he talked about how he hated certain songs because of the way they were finished. And they might be my favourite songs, but Lennon couldn't listen to them.
