Lady Gaga‘s single hasn’t even officially come out yet, but the chick is everywhere, and naked half the time. She’s serious about promoting ARTPOP, and this means a whole new change of image. She released a few official promo pics for her upcoming album (including this naked one, of course) and she’s stripped away the crazy makeup and hair, but this being Gaga, she’s got to have some kind of gimmick, right?
I guess her new thing is to carry a prosthetic arm. Not a mannequin arm, but an actual prosthetic (above). Here’s another one from that shoot.
So is this just an artistic expression thing or is it actually insensitive? Some have pointed out that those with prosthetic arms aren’t psyched that Gaga’s posing with it like she’s Michelle Williams in a Louis Vuitton ad.
What do you think? Is it artsy, insensitive, or not even worth being offended by because it’s just a gimmick and she’ll find a new prop next week?
