Lady Gaga will appear on the cover of the January 2010 issue of Elle magazine and as always, the interview inside is as good as the picture on the cover. Looking like a cross between Gaultier-clad Madonna and Debbie Harry, Gaga looks gorgeous but not too revealing, and explains to the mag that she tried to tone down the sexy as much as she can.
“My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough…The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.” Take notes, Heidi Montag!
We love this woman so much for having an insane image and then proving herself to be as normal as can be and wanting to set a good, if often pants-less, example. She also says that she plans to settle down eventually. “In eight to 10 years, I want to have babies for my Dad to hold, grandkids. And I want to have a husband who loves and supports me, just the way anyone else does. I would never leave my career for a man right now, and I would never follow a man around.” Portions of the interview and photos from the cover shoot are online now at Elle.com.
