Lady Gaga has a reputation as someone who never plays by the rules. The pop star definitely lived up to that expectation this week.

Gaga announced the track list for 'ARTPOP' by having fans paint the names of each song as part of a mural, then release the work via individual Twitter photos that featured each song's name scrawled across a wall in graffiti. 

It's a novel way to release the upcoming album's song list, though not completely unexpected. The singer commands an impressive army of loyal followers on the social media network (AKA Little Monsters), so this was the perfect way to connect with them. And the extra attention for the Twitter effort certainly doesn't hurt either.

Surprise: One of the songs, 'Do What U Want,' even features R. Kelly!
