Lady Gaga Wipes Her Twitter Profile, Changes Avatar To Default Egg

Lady Gaga has long been a Twitter all star, even after being surpassed in follower count by Justin Beiber in January.

But mysteriously, she has changed her Twitter profile picture to the network’s default egg image, and updated her Twitter bio to read, “This interface has been shutdown temporarily. Please check back for updates.”

Her profile also now has no cover image or background photo.

And she hasn’t sent a tweet since February 6 – having only sent six retweets since then, the most recent on June 26.

What gives?

As Mashable reports,

“The changes have drawn comparisons to her 2011 Grammy Awards appearance, where she arrived inside an egg and later emerged from it during a performance. The stunt is rumored to be for her fourth studio album ARTPOP, which is slated to be released this year.”

Lady Gaga’s not the only celebrity to take a hiatus from tweeting recently. She’s in the company of other big names like Alec Baldwin, Jennifer Love Hewitt and more.

What do you think Lady Gaga’s Twitter stunt is about?
