Don’t get us wrong — most Lady Gaga-related news thrills us (we were in stitches watching this video of Milwaukee Bucks player Brandon Jennings dancing to Love Game earlier today) but a new photo of her has thrown us for a loop.
The photo, which came our way via Oh No They Didn’t!, features the Lady wearing some sort of bikini made of meat. We imagine PETA is going to be pretty angry about our saying this, but as gross as the image is, it’s also a little fabulous.
So what about that much-hyped Jo Calderone cover? We noted when those leaked that they are just teaser covers, but those have more official-looking markers on them, such as a photo credit, cover lines written in Japanese and a volume number. This one looks a lot more conceptual (OK, OK, they’re both conceptual), so our best guess is that it’ll be somewhere inside the book or in an online feature.
Be sure to let us know what you think about the image in the comments — this one’s probably going to generate controversy long after the book goes on sale Sept. 2.
