Lady Gaga gets nose pierced in 'haus life' video, promos 'Artpop'

Lady Gaga is showing off how she got her latest olfactory piercing.

In a 58-second clip titled "haus life," posted on YouTube by her makeup artist Tara Savelo, Mother Monster is seen lying on her back while a man pierces her septum with a rod. The whole ordeal is set to intense house music and we're grateful that it's not quite as gruesome as actress Evan Rachel Wood's go at the piercing parlor.


The whole thing went down at MasterMind Ink in Chicago and the shop was pretty eager to share a pic of Gaga -- sans makeup -- with her new bling.

"Lady Gaga stopped by MasterMind Ink today and had our Head Piercer and Manager Steve Bennett pierce her septum," a post said on the shop's Facebook page. "Lady Gaga is down with the MasterMind, stop in."

Ah, a day in the life of the Gagz.

At the end of the clip, a promo shows up for "Artpop," her third studio album. The album and its accompanying app will be released Nov. 11, according to Pop & Hiss.

The 27-year-old, who spent quite a bit of time recovering from hip surgery, is set to perform a new single from "Artpop" on the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 25. The single she plans to perform at the VMAs will first be released Aug. 19.

In other Gaga news ...

Singer Katy Perry, 28, recently surpassed the singer as the most followed female on Twitter, according to Billboard. Perry dominates the micro-blogging site with nearly 39.9 million users following her, while Gaga counts just over 39.2 million followers. Lady Gaga once held the title of most followed Twitter user, but she lost that spot in January to YouTube-sensation-turned-pop-star Justin Bieber when his Beliebers overtook her Little Monsters.

The 19-year-old currently has nearly 42.3 million followers.

But something tells us Gaga and her Little Monsters might give Perry and the Biebs a run for their tweets when her "Artpop" promotional train rides through town.
