The rumors have been flying. She's been teasing. Now it comes out directly from her!
GaGa tweeted: "Merry Christmas little monsters! Terry Richardson @Terry_World is making a #LadyGagaMOVIE documenting my life, the creation of ARTPOP + you!"
Rumors about a possible documentary began circulating in the summer, but the Christmas Day tweet is the first confirmation of a film that focuses on the artist and her forthcoming album Artpop, set for a 2013 release.
Gaga's fourth record is one of the many additions to her ever-expanding multimedia empire. The album is expected to include a mobile and computer app, along with the physical and digital copies of the music. Her manager has promised that the app will include interactive games, video and interviews with the singer in attempt to further connect to her hordes of fans; fans that she refers to as "monsters".
There is no release date for the Richardson documentary, but Gaga will be appearing on the big screen in 2013 anyway with her feature-film acting debut in Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills. Gaga is also working on a jazz album with Tony Bennett.
