Check out this amazing V Magazine cover with Marc Jacobs and Lady Gaga. This gorgeous piece was shot by who else but Mario Testino and the master photog has the Lady dressed as Lady Liberty, only Gagafied of course. Read: in her underwear.
This issue is called V67- The New York issue. We’re guessing the rest of the magazine is going to be filled with even crazier images and the buzz is that it’s also going to feature plenty of everybody’s favorite New Yorkers! We’re also guessing that a fair amount of peeps aren’t going to be too happy with that stripped-down cover.
Well, it’s official. The world has turned into some kind of creepy, futuristic Terry Gilliam movie where people can morph into other people. At least, that’s what we’re getting from this story about Bulgarian Big Brother star Penio Daskalov, who wants to get a sex change and plastic surgery to look like his idol, Lady Gaga.
Daskalov wants a music career of his own (so why not look exactly like a pop star that already exists, right?), but he thinks this will give him an edge over the competition. He says “I really admire the way she has created herself, so when I’ve had my operations I won’t be quite a man or quite a woman.” Hey, if s/he’s any good they’ll have to create a genderless Grammy category for him/her/Prince symbol.
Daskalov also says that he doesn’t want to just look like Gaga, he wants to perform with her. “I’ve already contacted her management and told them what I am doing and how I’d like to record a duet with her.” Management has not yet responded. While Gaga is all about her fans (sorry, her little monsters), we wonder what she thinks of this particular form of imitation/flattery/insanity.
Madonna is the Queen Bee of all pop stars and she basically has her pick of who she wants to work with – she’s collaborated with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera, among others. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement – she gets youthful pop cred, and they get to work with one of the most legendary pop performers of all time. So it makes perfect sense that Madge is rumored to be “obsessed” with Lady Gaga and wants to tour with her.
A source at News Of The World says “[Madonna] thinks she is the most cutting-edge star to come out of pop in ages and desperately wants to work with her, ” and that “Basically Gaga can name her price.” It’s obvious that Gaga has followed the path Madonna paved, but we go back and forth between thinking this is an amazing idea and worrying that this tour will create a mega-storm of diva attitude that not even one Jennifer Lopez tour rider can rival. Either way, it would be awesome to behold.
Sorry, Britney Spears, but Lady Gaga has you beat once again. Gaga now holds the title of most-followed person on Twitter with over 5.7 million fans following her. Gaga usurped the title from Britney this weekend – guess even an appearance on Glee couldn’t boost her Twitter love. Gaga posted a hilarious “inaugural message” to her account on Saturday night addressing all her little monster-followers from her dressing room and wishing us well as she waved a magic Twitter-wand.
Remember the days when Ashton Kutcher was the most famous Twitter user? Back then, Gaga was barely a glimmer in anyone’s eye. Amazing how two years can change everything. Congratulations, Queen Gaga, on getting one step closer to being the next Oprah and making Ashton more obsolete than ever!
It seems Katy Perry developed a habit this summer of bashing her fellow female pop artists, but now she’s taking aim at ex-boyfriend Travie McCoy. In a recent Billboard interview, she explains that the song “Circle the Drain” from her new album Teenage Dream is “kind of like my ‘You Oughta Know,’ Alanis Morissette moment.” Here’s the brutal lyrics:
“You could have been the greatest/ But you’d rather get wasted/ You fall asleep during foreplay/ ‘Cause the pills you take are more your forte/ I’m not sticking around to watch you go down/ Wanna be your lover/ Not your f*cking mother.”
Ouch! And if that wasn’t painful enough, Katy digs the knife even deeper: “You think you’re so rock and roll/ But you’re really just a joke/ Had the world in the palm of your hand/ But you f*cking choked.” While Travie may have had this diss track coming, we’re still in mourning that Katy is no longer the cutesy “I Kissed A Girl And I Liked It” singer we once adored. Now she’s a catty “I Diss Them All Because I Feel Like It” singer.
Before trashing Travie, Katy dissed Lady Gaga on Twitter for her alleged blasphemous “Alejandro” music video and soon after dissed Miley Cyrus because she thought the “Can’t Be Tamed” pop star was being a skank. Warning to all celebrities: Katy Perry is ready to pounce.

Lady Gaga performed at Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grant Park this weekend. Remember the last time Grant Park was in the news? It was where Obama accepted the presidency on election night and Oprah and millions of others wept and cheered and the tone was regal and celebratory because it was history in the making? This scene uh, not so much. It was just a girl and her unsupported boobs rolling on top of a lot of sweaty people.
Gaga took the stage with Semi Precious Weapons and then flung her fishnet-covered, free-boobin’ self into the crowd where, contrary to how we might react when gravity pulls someone else’s breasts into our facial region, the crowd (and that one guy in particular) loved it. For a closer look at her star-covered nipples, check out our gallerypalooza below.

In a surprising response to requests that she boycott performing in Arizona to protest the stateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new immigration law, Lady Gagalashed out against the artists asking her to take part. In an interview Gaga proclaimed, “‘I got a phone call from a couple of really big rock ‘n’ rollers, big pop stars, big rappers. They said, ‘We’d like you to boycott Arizona because of SB 1070. And I said, ‘Do you really think that us dumb f***ing pop stars are going to collapse the economy of Arizona?’” Gaga then stomped off in a huff, went home, and took a quick dip in her swimming pool filled with diamonds and gold doubloons.
Despite GagaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rant, many recording artists have signed up with the organization Sound Strike in solidarity against the law, which many say legalizes racial profiling. However, the boycott would probably have a bigger impact if it featured more artists that people would sell their own mothers to see in concert, of which Gaga is definitely one. In lieu of changing her tour schedule, Gaga declared, “I will not cancel my show. I will yell and I will scream louder and I will hold you, and we will hold each other, and we will protest this state.’” While that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seem like the best way to combat unconstitutional legislation, we understand her perspective. People come to this nation so that they can wear their Kermit the Frog coats or dance with Beyonce in a womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s prison, if they so chose. And by god, who are we to take that away from them?
Katy Perry is a busty walking contradiction once again in her new interview with Rolling Stonethis month, as she discusses her fame, her hubs-to-be Russell Brand and most notably, her surprisingly conservative critiques of Lady GagaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sex-and-religion-themed Alejandro video. Perry attempts to explain her tweeted criticism, saying “I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen.” Hmm, we wonder if people in glass bikinis should really be throwing sexy stones, as it were.
While we certainly respect a personÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right to be spiritual, when most people ask, “what would Jesus do?” the answer is typically not, “lay butt-naked on a cotton candy cloud” or “dance around with a sentient gummy bear with his jugs out.”Ã‚Â Continues Perry, “Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix.”
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t give Gaga any more (fabulous) ideas! In addition to promoting her new album Teenage Dream, due out later this month, Perry delved further into her own strict religious upbringing, saying “I wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ever able to say I was Ã¢â‚¬Ëœlucky,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ because my mother would rather us say that we were Ã¢â‚¬Ëœblessed,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ and she also didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like that Ã¢â‚¬ËœluckyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ sounded like Ã¢â‚¬ËœLuciferÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.”
Wow, if her mom canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t listen to the word “lucky,” how demonic must “we freak in my jeep” sound to her? ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got to be embarrassing when your own mom starts burning your albumsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Last winter we gave you all the candy your eyes could take with Lady Gaga‘s Top 100 Hottest Outfits. Today, we take a minute to reflect upon her outrageous-ness; basking in the after shock she has bestowed amongst us mere normals. Our Lady of Crazy has made our favorite artists’ bootylicious hips a little more disproportionate, our shoulders a bit more dramatic, and our eyes a little wider (not to mention the damage she’s caused to our retinas). But don’t be fooled, all of the fashion statements Lady Gaga has made haven’t just perpetuated more ogling, they’ve created a ripple effect amongst our favorite stars.
So, in order to celebrate the authenticity that is Gaga, we’ve assembled a collection of those who have dared to emulate her edgy, abnormal, and borderline supernatural sense of style. Katy Perry and Rihanna are smooth sailing on the waves of their own styles with the help of Gaga’s sophisticated and edgy influence. But Christina Aguilera‘s valiant effort to infuse Gaga’s twisted sexual fantasies and avant-garde tones into her closet falls flat, and it’s safe to say that we liked her more when she held her own style down. And Ke$ha? What the f$ck?
Sit back and feast your eyes on the triumphs and tribulations of those who have been hit by the Gaga train!
We’re not so sure about this. We happen to see Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse on two very different levels and think it might not be very smart for Lady Gaga to start carousing with her. But from what we’re hearing, the two are getting set for a duet.
