Lady Gaga loves her some Twitter chats. Less than one month remains until her third studio album "Artpop" hits record store shelves and digital retailers. After unveiling her album cover, official tracklist and second single title, the "Applause" singer went on Twitter last night (Oct. 13) to answer more questions about the album from her dedicated Little Monsters fanbase. She dished about her favorite songs on the record, the sound of "Artpop" and what fans can expect from the "Venus" music video.

Most excitingly, "Venus" is about to makes its worldly debut. Set to debut musically on Oct. 22, the music video will be the first in an "Artpop" cinematic trilogy, likened to Gaga's earlier music video efforts like "Telephone."

When asked by @sweetm0nster if "Venus" would continue "Telephone," Gaga responded, "No ma'am it's the beginning of ARTPOP TRILOGY ENDINGS TO COME," implying that not only would there be three more singles from "Artpop" but that each music video will build upon an earlier one. Gaga also unveiled that English filmmaker Ruth Hogben would be directing the clip, and that the birth of the "Venus" music video would come after the single's Oct. 22 release date.

Gaga also teased some about the sound and the meaning of her "Artpop" music. According to her, the tracklist was deliberate, placing lead single "Applause" at the end so she could perform the entire album in full during her tour next year. She revealed that she's "obsessed" with the whole album (unable to pick a favorite between "Sexxx Dreams," "Venus," "Dope," "G.U.Y." and "Artpop") and that she has a "very strong connection to this album."

Most interestingly, Gaga revealed the sound of "Artpop," which will have a strong hip-hop influence -- featuring artists such as Twista, T.I. and R. Kelly -- and electronic vibes. "Gypsy is a ballad/electronic song. But there is a lot of hard funky midtempo + space rock electronica explosion of beats," she wrote. "I made a happy album with a lot of energy to pick up my spirits and keep my adrenaline pumping. MUSIC FOR MUSIC JUNKIES."

Lady Gaga's album "Artpop" will be released Nov. 11. The album's second single, "Venus," will debut Oct. 22.
