Lady Gaga gives her 'little monsters' a sneak peak with Twitpic of single cover for 'Born This Way'
Wednesday, February 9th 2011, 4:00 AM
She may be known for her outrageous outfits and curious costumes, but Lady Gaga didn't wear much for the cover of new single "Born This Way."
The button-pushing singer, 24, tweeted a photo of her new album cover with the words "Trois Jours" - translation: "three days" - Tuesday afternoon.
Her much-anticipated single will be released this Friday.
In the photo, the singer switched things up, baring all on top (as opposed to her usual no-pants policy) in a self-portrait that showed off sharp shoulder blades and a few unearthly facial bumps.
Gaga's tweet comes just in time to act as a lead-in to the 53rd annual Grammy Awards, which will air this Sunday, Feb. 13.
The "Paparazzi" singer previously released the full lyrics of the song on Twitter at the end of last month, with the message: "Are you ready for the full lyrics?! Can we trend #bornthiswaylyrics!? It has been in my heart for over a year. I'm so excited to share it.
"It's #1 worldwide! That was fast! You're so radical! Here you [go] Monsters, this one's for you."
"Call me Gaga," she told Cooper, who wasn't sure how to address the pop star.
"Does anyone call you Stefani?" the host asked.
"Yeah, some people do," Gaga replied gamely, adding: "Especially in bed."
Gaga is up for six Grammy awards at Sunday's musical fete.
