It's no surprise that Lady Gaga would take a shine to Berlin's storied Berghain nightclub. The place combines pretty much of all of her interests - dark dance music, public sexuality, elaborate fashion and a veneer of inscrutability. It's widely regarded as the best electronic music club on the planet, full stop.
So in the same way that Jay-Z pals around with Marina Abramovic for art-world cred, Gaga will dip back into danceland when she hosts a release party for her forthcoming "Artpop" album there on Oct. 24, according to Spin.
In an event hosted by the German streaming service AMPYA, Gaga will take a few dozen hand-picked fans behind the velvet rope (or, rather, behind the imposing glare of Sven). To win entry, they'll submit their most burning Gaga-centric questions in advance, and Gaga will take the ones that most entertain her.
It's not her first time inside the club -- German papers were thrilled in 2011 when, after a show of her "Monster's Ball" tour, she reportedly writhed in the pitch-black rooms implicitly devoted to public sex.
Those rooms, alas, will be off-limits to this crowd -- Gaga's show will be held in an adjacent event space inside the Berghain complex, a former power plant. So if your really want to see Gaga truly wild out, you'll have to stick to her videos and VMA performances for now.
