About this Article

The mission of some art, particularly the modern kind, is to provoke -- to present outlandish concepts, explore untraditional ideas, challenge traditional norms -- and leave you with many questions, searching for answers. If that is the goal of Lady Gaga's fourth album, "Artpop," then she's already got a success on her hands. If the goal, however, is to entertain, then she fails, though at least she does it in her typical spectacular fashion.
