Lady Gaga has found the perfect forum to unleash some of her new music. The singer, who has made outrageous fashion a huge part of her identity, tweeted on Monday that she plans to preview some material from her upcoming Born This Way album on Wednesday at a Paris fashion show by Thierry Mugler.
"I'm the musical director for the MUGLER fashion show," she told her little monsters. "I'm remixing/previewing a record on Born This Way, tailored for the show + garments." She did not specify which song she would be previewing.
The news is the latest tease of information about the eagerly awaited album, which is due out on May 23. According to Women's Wear Daily, Gaga got the gig because Mugler's new creative director is Nicola Formichetti, the designer who came up with Gaga's infamous "meat dress" for the MTV VMAs last year.
Formichetti told WWD that Gaga will serve as musical director for one of the most anticipated debuts of Men's Fashion Week, which runs through Sunday. This isn't the first time she's used a Paris runway to launch new music: Gaga premiered "Bad Romance" at Alexander McQueen's show in 2009.
Gaga also tweeted photos of her two 2010 Grammys, which she said were just delivered to her house by her dad. The awards, for Best Electronic/Dance Album (The Fame) and Best Dance Recording ("Poker Face"), immediately took up residence in an important space in the singer's home. "Look what just arrived from last year!"

The 24-year-old singer is up for six Grammys at next month's awards show, which will air on February 13, the same day she is set to release the first single from her new album. She is also performing on the program, along with Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire and Miranda Lambert.
