Lady GaGa was recently hit with copyright infringement allegation over her single "Judas". Instead of issuing statement regarding that matter, she took to Twitter to post an official cover art for her next single "You and I". "You will never find what you are looking for in love, if you don't love yourself," she tweeted along with the picture.
The cover art boasts two images of the Mother Monster posing as her male alter-ego Jo Calderone. Taken from a June 2010 photo shoot with photographer Nick Knight for Vogue Hommes Japan, both of the pictures feature her wearing a white tee and suit, having her black hair gelled up and smoking a cigarette.
Prior to revealing the artwork, GaGa hinted when music video for the single will arrive for fans' viewing pleasure. "The Music Video for 'You and I' will be my 1000th Tweet," so the outlandish singer/songwriter wrote. By Friday night, August 5, she has already posted 992 tweets.
Details of the video were previously revealed by GaGa in a radio interview. "The premise of the video is that I've walked all the way from New York City to Nebraska to get him back," she said. "I'm walking with no luggage and no nothing and it's just me and my ankles are bleeding a little bit and there's grass stuck in my shoes and I've got this outfit on and it's real sort of New York clothing and I'm sprinting."
"The [video is about the] idea that when you're away from someone you love, it's torture," she continued. "I knew I wanted the video to be about me sprinting back and walking hundreds of thousands of miles to get him back."
GaGa was accused of ripping off "Judas" by a singer named Rebecca Francescatti. The second single from album "Born This Way" was claimed by Rebecca as a copy of her 1999 song "Juda". Through a lawyer, she said, "Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody."
Rebecca furthermore claimed that the similarities between the two songs are not a coincidence because her former bass player named Brian Gaynor is now employed by a music company that wrote 17 songs on GaGa's recent album. Thus, Rebecca "is [now] seeking recognition for what she created."
