Listen: Lady Gaga Blasts Off on Theatrical New Track "Venus"

Days after Lady Gaga premiered new song "Gypsy" live in Berlin, the singer's global ARTPOP promotion continued with the release of new track "Venus" and two eyebrow-raising gigs in England.

"Venus" is a theatrical, schizophrenic electro-pop thumper providing a new hook at every sonic shift. Listen above as Mother Monster sings fantastical lyrics about oysters, the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her "famous ass."

The 27-year-old performed her new track twice during her weekend stay in the UK.

Gaga took the "Venus" lyric "Act sleazy" literally at London nightclub G-A-Y, where the controversial singer flashed her vagina to the cheering crowd before stripping completely naked. Watch a NSFW Instagram video where Gaga flashes her muffin here and see NSFW pics of Gaga baring all here.

Gaga also performed "Venus" and new single "Do What U Want" on the UK version of The X Factor (below). The 27-year-old delivered a choreography-heavy live rendition, but the most notable aspect of the night came post-performance. 

When The X Factor host asked if she and show judge Sharon Osbourne, who called the singer "desperate" and labeled her Little Monsters "hideously damaging, hurtful and violent" after a public feud with daughter Kelly, were cool, Gaga responded by running offstage for an on-air hug.

"I didn't know, but she is truly a goddess!" Gaga proclaimed of Mama Osbourne, ending a feud with at least one member of the family. Kelly, what say you?
