PHOTOS: Lady Gaga’s (Obviously NSFW) V Spread is Coming
We’ve given up trying to decode Lady Gaga’s various artistic ventures and anti-advertising/reverse psychology campaigns ahead of the November release of her new album ARTPOP, and have chosen to focus on the facts: She’s here, and she’s naked. Again. This time for the September issue of V magazine, which made a promise via Twitter to reveal the four Lady Gaga covers one-by-one in exchange for RTs.
It took mere hours for V to reveal the first one, lensed by Inez van Lambsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and showing Gaga in actual body-covering clothes by Saint Laurent Paris. In the accompanying spread, however, she’s topless again, slathered in mud and appropriating a Calvin Klein tank as a sort-of skirt. Because, you know, art and stuff. The remaining three covers are also shot by Inez and Vinoodh, and styled by Versace, Armani and Balenciaga.
Update: More photos from the spread are here, and featuring contortionist poses and the epic crotch grab to end all crotch grabs. See all the images below.
