0The Germanotta Looks Run in the Family

Go figure. I mean, it’s not as if I’d expect the Germanotta looks to run in the Evans family, or the Capriotti family, so it’s sort of a given, but hey. It’s a conversation point, huh?

From Teen Vogue:

… If fans are hoping for Gaga II or the anti-Gaga, it’s clear, within two seconds of meeting her, that Natali’s not interested in playing the part of either. When she arrives at the Teen Vogue offices, her look is neither sensible-cousin-trapped-in-the-Addams-family nor over-the-top fashion freak: Her hair is in a slicked-back ponytail, makeup is minimal (save for dramatic liquid eyeliner), and her outfit—floor-length black skirt, black blazer, black boots, Alexander Wang bag—is part of an everyday uniform she calls “witchypoo.”

… Natali doesn’t exactly need a diploma to gain access to the fashion industry. As this story was going to press, it was reported that the teen was in the running to design the costumes for off-Broadway show Simon Says. A tremendous credential for any young fashion student, but one wonders why she hasn’t just asked her sister to pull some strings for her (at, say, Haus of Gaga, for starters)? “For now I’d like to stay in [fashion] school,” Natali says, adding that Gaga has occasionally called in favors, like the time she turned a stiletto Natali made for a school project into a shoe-shaped piano she played during a performance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. “I was at my parents’ house sobbing, like, ‘Oh my God,’” she recalls of watching the episode.

… Natali [also] admits that her support for her sister’s outré wardrobe choices isn’t 100 percent selfless: “Whenever I wear something crazy and my dad gives me a hard time, I say, ‘Well, at least I’m not walking out on the street with red pasties,’ and he’ll be like, ‘Good point.’”

Cute. I think I like this girl. I mean, she’s young and her points of view will probably change a zillion times before she really settles into who she is (unless, of course, she’s anything like her older sister), but on the whole, she seems cool.

1Why Yes, We Are Obsessed With Tony Bennett’s New Duets Album

I just love Tony Bennett. I really do. When he finally dies, I’m going to be seriously sad – it’ll be an epic loss. Same with Rod Stewart. I cannot convey to you how much I love that man, and the fact that the two of them have done jazz standard albums is even further awesome to me, because I think the only songs worth listening to are of the jazz and blues genre (give me Robert Johnson or Billie Holiday any old day), or those with jazz and blues influences. But hey, that’s just me. I’m not saying there’s anything particularly wrong with death metal or Britney Spears, but I don’t think Mr. Bennett here has either of those on shuffle in his iPod.

Oh, and Gaga sounds pretty good, too, I suppose.

2Lady Gaga Let Kat Von D Tattoo Her Before She Became Famous and Thus, Untouchable

LOL! Lady Gaga worked with New Kids on the Block? Yeah, I definitely didn’t know that. Who the hell filmed this thing? I also never heard anyone in my entire life call anything about Kat Von D “elegant.” Gaga also sounds like your stereotypical fame-seeking, dumb-speaking twit that ends every sentence in a question? Yeah, just like that. I mean, I’d completely rather take this version of Gaga over the now-version of Gaga, who’s too pretentious and who thinks she’s so “fashion and art” that she can’t see her ass from a hole in the ground, but in either case … way too funny.

0Here’s Another Music Video from Lady Gaga!

Remember those “fashion films” of Lady Gaga‘s that Sarah told you about last week? About how Lady Gaga is planning on releasing five “fashion films” for “You and I”? Yeah, this is one of those. I hope you love it, because I really didn’t. That robot arm and that mouth piece, that thing around her chin or whatever? I didn’t get it, and that didn’t stop me from cowering in fear. To be fair to Gaga though, I’m sick and medicated and out of it, and this morning I freaked out when my boyfriend tried to hold my hand because I thought he was a monster. So, you know, you might want to go ahead and judge this for yourself.

3This Kind of Stuff is Precisely Why I Can’t Take Lady Gaga Seriously as a Fashion Icon

Come on. I mean really: come on.

Aside from even opening my mouth about those shoes, Gaga’s hair is starting to look really, really bad. You know what I want? I want crop-topped, natural-colored, short-haired Lady Gaga sans makeup and odd clothes doing her music bit. And then, I might actually be able to see the forest for trees. Until then, I’m screaming “Ragweed allergy!” and running. the hell. away.

1Lady Gaga’s on the Cover of a Magazine Looking Normal Again

Is Lady Gaga trying to start a trend here or something? I’m thinking it’s got the “be yourself” theme going on, but I’m still not quite sure who Lady Gaga really is inside, so I could be completely wrong about that. Maybe she’s promoting “accept people with long, stringy grandma hair and those with a sincere need for Blistex.”

I’m kidding about that last part – I’m really appreciating Gaga as of late for, you know, LOOKING LIKE HER NORMAL SELF I suppose comes close to what I’m thinking, what with the whole new set of art videos she’s been pushing and everything, and now this Harper’s Bazaar cover and interview. She’s also been kind of doing this jazz throwback thing, which will almost *always* score points in my book, so hey. Let’s hear it for the boy girl, shall we?
