Lady Gaga often takes liberties with the definition of “dress” but here she’s really pushing the boundaries of the English language.
The always out-there singer debuted a new outfit that mixes fashion and technology - a high-tech behemoth of fabric and metal that she’s dubbed 'Volantis.' The spectacle was part of her ARTPOP album release party in Brooklyn on Sunday night.
“I wanted to make today about something even more important to me, and that something is the youth of the world,” Gaga said. “Their minds are just so boundless. They’re just so inspiring.”
“Although she [Volantis] is a vehicle,” she continued, “she is essentially a metaphor for me. I will be a vehicle for their voices.”

Now we’ll admit, we think we’ve seen better special effects from the late ‘80s action flick RoboCop. This is a little clunky. But Gaga’s never really been one to steer clear of something so whacky that it could make her a regular on “The Jetsons.”
