Lady Gaga has been pimping her upcoming album ARTPOP by getting naked. In her latest act of self-promotion, she takes it all off for the September issue of V magazine.

The mag just released the first of four covers. The singer is pictured in unbuttoned jeans and a red sequined bolero jacket. She cups her bare left breast with her hand.

The pop star, 27, was photographed by artist duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. They also shot all the artwork for her album.

Each of the four editions of V magazine will feature a different interview held by Serbian artist Marina Abramovic. Last week, Gaga starred in a bizarre performance video by Abramovic.

The singer just released her single "Applause" after it was leaked online over the weekend.
