Courtney Love: My art friends influenced Gaga’s ‘Artpop’

Los Angeles, April 17: Singer-songwriter Courtney Love says pop star Lady Gaga’s “Artpop” album has infulence of her “arty friends”, but the concept failed to “translate for the masses”.

The 49-year-old is convinced Gaga came up with the idea for the record after the singer was introduced to a number of Love’s arty friends, reports

The album received mixed reviews and failed to match the sales of her previous release “Born This Way”, and Love fears Gaga’s highbrow approach alienated swathes of fans.

“Well, I’m friendly with her. She started hanging out with a lot of my art friends and I think it influenced her and that’s great but it doesn’t necessarily translate for the masses… She tried to take it on and sort of acclimate it into pop,” she told Britain’s Gay Times.
