Gaga has never shied away from controversy and she’s bound to drum some up with her new cover of Candy magazine. She joins a long list of celebrities who have graced the cover. Candy celebrates transvestism, transexuality, crossdressing and androgyny in all their glory.
Lady Gaga chooses to showcase her full body, including everything down south, in a black and white photo shoot. She puts on a dramatic scorpion nipple pasty and dons a Dali-like painted moustache too. It’s a bold choice for the singer and the magazine indeed. But bold is what gets you attention.
Lady Gaga is constantly trying to shock. If she had enough of weird fashion like the infamous ‘Meat Dress’, she found the easiest way to grab eyeballs and what else could it be but to bare it all. Pop-sculpture artist Jeff Koons shot Lady Gaga, which I think is for her album – PopArt – that released on Wednesday. Lady Gaga being nekkid with a giant blue glass ball is art? I doubt!
I can’t say I entirely understand the symbolism in these photos. I suppose it mostly has to do with shocking people and selling albums. There’s really no denying that Lady Gaga keeps herself in pretty fine shape. If you are a Lady Gaga fan, ENJOY the images!
I was rather shocked to see the images of pop-star Lady Gaga on a LV wheelchair in Chicago the past week. Gaga has been confined to a wheelchair since February this year, when she suffered a labral tear in her hip that caused her to abandon the remaining U.S. dates of her Born This Way Ball tour.
By the way Lady Gaga earlier spun around in a custom 24-carat-gold Mordekai wheelchair designed by Ken Borochov.
Woh…I am amazed by things celebrities do to stand-out and how the luxury brands are there to cater to all their needs. I am sure next time a Bollywood star breaks a leg or a hip, he/she will not be caught dead in a regular wheelchair or crutches!
GaGa while enjoying coconut water early morning at her hotel room balcony was rather overjoyed to see tons of her fans below. In that joy she dropped her towel that covered her boobs. But she had the coconut to save some modesty and just give a ‘peek-a-boo(b) frame to the paparazzi. Well topless ain’t no big-deal Lady GaGa. What’s big is that you donated a million dollars for victims of Sandy that stormed into New York and New Jersey. Kudos to that!
Stars from the ‘Music World’ have been the favourite with Fashion Designers when it comes to be their Muse. We have seen Pete Doherty being idolised by Heidi Slimane of Dior, Amy Winehouse’s Beehive Hairdo inspiring Karl Lagerfeld and most recently Lady Gaga almost resurrecting the forgotten label – Theirry Mugler.
David Bowie the Rockstar with the famous Mullet seems like the Fashion’s Muse for the year 2012. The January 2012 issue of Vogue, Germany shot by another Rocker – Bryan Adams - completely nails Bowie’s glamrock sensibility. Daphne Guinness is almost unrecognisable in a red mullet, glam makeup and gold sequins, the typically goth socialite in a David Bowie-inspired editorial.
It was Kate Moss who channelled Bowie on the cover of Vogue Paris’s 2011 music issue. In the May 2011 issue of Numero, model Edita Vilkeviciute did her best impression of David Bowie, sporting lightning bolt face makeup for the shoot. Even Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2012 campaign, featuring a mullet-ed Anja Rubik is giving us Bowie vibes.
