Lady Gaga Born This Way Page 1
We don’t know about you, but we were so caught up in the excitement of Monday’s inaugural balls (and, of course, that inaugural gown) that we forgot that last night held even more excitement in the capital. President Obama honored thousands of White House and campaign staffers at one final celebration Tuesday night, and enlisted what he called a “couple of people who are pretty good musicians — Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.”
People were celebrating all around the world this past weekend. Canada day, 4th of July, Lady Gaga day. That’s right- Taiwan was so excited for the singer’s tour of the island that they proclaimed July 3rd Lady Gaga day, and they threw quite the celebration!
When Lady Gaga appeared on The View today, she wore a dress made of hair and a pair of stilt-like shoes that required the popstar to have two big dudes help her walk over to Barbara Walters and crew.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Lady Gaga is having quite a week. She’s edited Metro, released a teaser for a documentary with Jean Paul Gaultier, and hosted a (successful!) sale on Gilt. She’s also the subject of an MTV special, and is tonight’s Saturday Night Live musical guest!
The visual language of Lady Gaga‘s upcoming album Born This Way has been established since she released the record’s first single of the same name — it’s all about black and white photography, weird facial protrusions, and a bit of biker chic. The album drops May 23, but today Gaga tweeted the album art, and it’s certainly in keeping with her current aesthetic.
Lady Gaga has dissolved the deal that gave Target rights to sell an exclusive version of her new album Born This Way. And why? Because the store isn’t doing enough for the gays.
It’s the song that sparked a thousand ‘Express Yourself’ comparisons and caused Elton John to declare it the “gayest song” he’s ever heard. But the one thing everyone’s really been waiting for is finally here: the official video for Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ is out and it’s insane. Also: strangely commercial.
Lady Gaga is considerably powerful, as pop artists go, but does she have the power to change the policy guidelines at a hugely influential national retailer?
If Lady Gaga‘s assemblage of musical and artistic references seems like they’re a tad random at times, her profile in the March issue of Vogue magazine confirms that they’re anything but. Gaga’s image is controlled and even studied — and when it comes to fashion, her look is as raw and as hand-crafted as her music. And how? She pays for her clothes (yes, even the meat dress) herself.
