Warning: We weren’t joking about the video being NSFW. It contains full frontal nudity.

The Mother Monster is back in full swing. If you thought Lady Gaga‘s single that leaked was going to be controversial, just wait until you get a look at the teaser video she put out for her new album.

Called “The Abramovi? Method practiced by Lady Gaga,” the video shows the 27-year-old pop star showcasing a type of art made popular by performance artist Marina Abramovi?. The Abramovi? Method “helps participants to develop skills for observing long durational performances.”

“Last week at a three-day retreat in upstate New York, Marina instructed Lady Gaga in the Abramovi? Method — a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment,” a statement about the video reads.

Gaga definitely showcases that by holding one note for extended periods of time, but we’re still not sure what the yellow-horns-over-her-eyes or getting-naked-and-hugging-crystals elements of this video are all about. Whatever the case, Lady Gaga is sure to impress when her album comes out on Nov. 11. The first single off “ARTPOP,” “Applause,” is due out on Aug. 19.

The Mother Monster isn’t the only performing artist taking advantage of Abramovi?’s style of art. Jay Z also welcomed her on stage with him during his “Picasso Baby” performance art at New York’s Pace Gallery.
