Lady Gaga launched her brand new album 'ARTPOP' at the weekend with a stunt that saw her levitated in the "world's first flying dress".

The 'Do What U Want' singer staged an incredible stunt inside a building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Sunday (10th November) where she was strapped into a battery-powered "dress" called the Volantis, before being levitated into the air.

The high-tech piece of equipment was designed by TechHaus, part of the US star's Haus Of Gaga company, who have been working on the project for two years.

"I will be a vehicle today for their voices, youth all over the world," Lady Gaga announced just before the levitating stunt.
