Lady GaGa is back on the ho stroll with a new album (and an app!) to promote, and what better way to do that than getting naked? Seriously, she just can’t seem to keep her clothes on these days and it’s kinda making me want to vomit. Clearly she hasn’t got the memo that you can be sensual and sexy without, you know, sitting around in the nude.
I feel like I’d be a bad feminist if I didn’t embrace a woman’s right to strip down to her birthday suit if she so chooses. I’m totally into that! But I feel like GaGa’s not doing it for empowerment or expression, but instead to try and provoke a reaction or come off as sultry or edgy. It’s sort of the lowest form of art – even pornography is better because at least it doesn’t purport to be anything but what it is.
I’m probably thinking about this way too hard. I just really wish Stefani would keep her clothes on. Anyway, this is a promo image for Artpop‘s first single, which is due out on August 19 (as per GaGa’s Twitter post).

Lana Del Rey should send a basket of aloe to Lady Gaga because she gave the girl some serious burns in an old song she wrote about her, titled “So Legit”. Not sure why people are suddenly picking up on this song now, as Ms. Del Rey wrote it years ago, but they are. I kinda feel bad for Stefani AKA Gaga because the song is really mean. It’s also pretty hilarious. And pretty bad. I love Lana AKA Lizzy Grant but this is really not her best. You can barely hear what she’s singing and it sounds like she’s making it up as she goes along. She most likely wrote the song some time in 2008, maybe 2009, as the song criticizes Gaga’s massive rise to fame. Here are some choice lyrics:
You’re looking like a man, you’re talking like a baby
How the fuck is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy?
I don’t get it
Your taste once exquisite
[LOL SERIOUSLY LANA? YOU'RE DISSING SOMEONE FOR SOUNDING LIKE A BABY? COME ON NOW.]
You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe
How the fuck would you go switch it up and then replace me?
I don’t get it, I’m so legit
Stefani, you suck, I know you’re selling twenty million
Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg
Oh, girl, I see you walking ’round in your pearls
Thinking that you’re number one
You’re so funny, ‘cause honey, you’re not
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to our scene, baby?
Have we all gone Gaga crazy?
Whose side are you on?

I’m not sure if the above photo – shot for V Magazine – is meant to be sexy or what, but it’s most definitely not. It’s more “Hey, uh… can you hand me my towel?” than “Yeah baby, come and get it”, and I’m also not sure what that face is trying to say. Or that hair. Basically, I don’t know what any of this means or why it’s happening and why it won’t stop right now!
Props to GaGa on going with some long beach waves, but I can almost see the track marks in that weave. Also, why is she making a chipmunk face? Why is she sitting her naked ass on that stool where other people will probably sit after, not realising that GaGa’s asscheeks have been spread on it? There are so many things wrong here. If this is the new phase of Artpop, it’s incredibly unsanitary.

Though Lady Gaga appears to be licking an old mannequin hand in her new promo (or “leaked footage” as they’re calling it) for her upcoming album, “ARTPOP”, she still looks very pretty and understated. “ARTPOP” seems to be a new era for the singer, at least in terms of aesthetics, as we haven’t heard any (official) songs from the album yet. Foregoing her signature crazy hair and outfits, most of what we’ve seen of her is a more natural, subdued look. I think she looks fantastic.
Could this change be the result of a much suspected nose job? She’s been looking a little…different. I wasn’t the only one who noticed her new look at the Pride Rally. A few sites are commenting that her nose looks a lot slimmer with a more defined tip. Could it be all the weight she’s lost that makes it appear that way, or her new more natural looking makeup?
What do you think: did Gaga get her nose done?

I’m not really sure what’s going on with Lady GaGa lately, but something tells me whatever it is isn’t very good. She’s gearing up to release her new single/album/app but didn’t look too happy about it as she arrived at a recording studio in LA on Sunday. In fact, she looked vaguely… I dunno what the word is. Ill? Upset? Like a mental patient being carted off to an institution?
Not sure how I feel about what she’s done to her hair, either. I mean, that’s all very “in” at this point, but it’s a bit strange. But GaGa is an ~artist~ so she needs to express herself and we all just need to shut up about it and let her get on with it, I suppose. Also, hilariously, she has a picture of herself in the car’s windshield:
Shine on, you crazy diamond.

Lady GaGa has been pretty much out of the spotlight for the past few months as she underwent hip surgery, rode around in a gold wheelchair, maybe got plastic surgery (totally did) and fought frivolous lawsuits. But now she’s back and she actually has music to release! A new single! A new album! An app! Ahhhhhhh! (That can be a scream of joy, terror or disgust, depending on your personal tastes.)
I mean, I’m not really all that excited about this. I liked the Fame Monster EP (and her actual first album), but the second one started to lose me a bit. I also think, you know, Madonna did it better. But that’s cool – different strokes for different folks.
What do you think? Excited about this or not so much?
