Lady Gaga has opened up about the artwork for her new single Applause, stating that the image doesn't define her album campaign.
Speaking to Women's Wear Daily, the Marry The Night singer explained that she will portray a number of looks throughout ARTPOP project, stating that she is "not one icon", adding: "I'm every icon."
When asked by the publication in the fashion choices made for the Applause artwork is an indiction of what fans can expect from her LP, Gaga replied: "It's interesting how you view things, and you look at it like, 'I'm a pop icon', and [you wonder] 'Is this the image of the album? Is this the direction? Who came up with it?'
"I think that's so interesting, because it's exactly the kind of thing we're trying to destroy. This is one jacket. This is one image. This is one moment. This is one statement."
Gaga continued: "When you watch each image and you watch each thing come out, they might not look exactly the same. [I'm not] defined by the same designer or defined by the same haircut or defined by the same icon.
"The statement is that I'm not one icon. I'm every icon. I'm an icon that is made out of all the colours on the palette at every time. I have no restrictions. No restrictions."
Applause, which serves as the first cut to be taken from ARTPOP is released on August 19 - ahead of the follow-up to Gaga's 2011 LP Born This Way, on November 11.
