In a startling turn of events, it appears that Lady Gaga‘s latest Vogue cover was Photoshopped. This unsettling news was discovered when new photos and a video were released of Gaga on the set of the Photoshoot, looking marginally larger than she did on the cover itself, and not because of common sense. Take a look at this STARTLING photo:
And this one!
And the video:
This is what Lady Gaga actually looks like, and if you look up at the very top, you can see what Vogue wants us to think she looks like. And yeah, it’s a pretty drastic difference, but, like, it’s a magazine cover. It’s an image of a lady doing something in print. Of course it’s Photoshopped. I don’t get why people are so shocked, but they really are. Apparently this is a big deal because Lady Gaga is such an advocate of being proud of who you are and not changing for anyone, but she very obviously wasn’t “born this way,” har har. And I get that. But I think this is just another crazy Gaga thing.
Of course the proportions aren’t natural. Look at her knees, and those gigantic hips. Nothing about this photo seems all that realistic to me, and the tiny little waist is just a part of that. So can we all just take a moment to relax and say “whatever, it’s just Lady Gaga” please?
