Listen to Lady Gaga on iHeartRadio

On the eve of Lady Gaga releasing her new album, ARTPOP, the singer unveiled Volantis, the world’s first flying dress.

At a launch party for the new record at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Gaga flew the contraption across a stage and then explained that it was “a small step for Volantis,” but “a big-time step” for her.

Gaga told the crowd at her party, “I wanted to make today about something even more important to me, and that something is the youth of the world… Their minds are just so boundless. They’re just so inspiring.”

And though the singer said Volantis is just “a vehicle,” she added the dress is “essentially a metaphor for me. I will be a vehicle today for their voices.”
