Lady Gaga is going drone. In a publicity stunt to promote her newest album, Artpop, the Grammy Award-winning singer donned a multi-rotor copter she called Volantis and skimmed the stage. The battery-powered dress came with six booms and a rigid bodice that kept her in place for her entrance. She told the crowd that had gathered at the building in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard:
I have to wonder how far the metaphor extends, since a pilot controlled the vehicle from off stage and the contraption only rose 70 inches off the floor. Nonetheless, it’s a crazy stunt perfectly in line with previous Gaga-rific stunts.
