Lady Gaga Teaming Up With H&M For Album Release

H&M is the mecca of cheap basics, from solid-colored tees for stocking your closet to trendy dresses you'll wear to death for a season then discard.

It's not really a place we imagine Lady Gaga shops -- but that doesn't seem to make a difference to Gaga, who is teaming up with the store for the release of her new album, ARTPOP. H&M will carry the album in 175 stores starting today, and this Thursday, Gaga will cut the ribbon at the opening of H&M's new mega-store in Times Square.

We have a hard time imaging what H&M clothes Lady Gaga will wear for the big unveiling... unless, of course, she picks something from the avant-garde Maison Martin Margiela collaboration.
