Star Spotting: It's Official! Lady Gaga Never Leaves Home Without Her Sacred Koons Ball! (PHOTO)

Does Lady Gaga ever leave home without her sacred Koons ball?

"Say hello, Koons ball!"

While I refuse to step foot outside my house without a mini-hand sanitizer (watched WAY too many episodes of "Dr. Oz"), Lady Gaga apparently NEVER leaves home without her shiny blue Jeff Koons-crafted orb in tow! Hey, we get it. Once you hug something as close to your naked body as the "Venus" singer did on the cover of ARTPOP, you kinda create an unbreakable bond -- we imagine.

Photographed in New York City, Lady Gaga was there to cut the ribbon at the grand opening of a new H&M in Times Square. While her flying dress was nowhere in sight (good thinking, 'cause parking's a beast in Midtown), she did greet the paparazzi on the arm of her Koons ball plus one. We couldn't think of a more well-rounded date if we tried. Ba-dum-ch! #IsThisThingOn

Read more about Gaga's date with a Koons ball, and watch Little Monsters react to her OTHER store opening at the ARTPOP Pop-Up Shop after the jump.

Maybe the "Do What U Want" songstress is actually on the cusp of a new fake pet trend? Guys, the Koons ball might be the next Pet Rock or Tamagotchi, and, um, I WANT ONE, STAT! Hmmmm, I guess I could just as easily steal the shiny blue gazing ball in my grandma's garden. (It totally looks like those... AMIRITE????)
