Lady Gaga’s cover for Vogue’s September issue has finally arrived!
It was revealed in June that the singer would grace the magazine’s biggest issue of the year. This is Gaga’s second time on the cover of Vogue (you can see her cover from last year here!).
Gaga started teasing fans on Tuesday, letting them know the cover was on it’s way. “Don’t worry I’ve been txting Wintour all morning trying to get that cover queens. next im sending bagels to VOGUE (complex carbohydrate war)”
Gaga posted an image of the cover – plus one more – on Twitter.
Describing the cover image, Lady Gaga wrote, “I’m totally channeling fozzibear.” She’s not so off-base: her hair, blonde this time (not creamy pink) is teased into a majorly furry mess onto the top of her head. The volume on top is matched by volume below in the form of a striking magenta Marc Jacobs dress, billowing at the hips and splaying out with a mermaid hem. Inside the mag, Gaga poses in the buff with a giant Steven Jones hat, also in magenta.
What do you think of Gaga’s cover? I think the cover is okay (boring), but I love the shot below. I think it’s beautiful!
Here are some tidbits from the interview via Celebitchy:
She’s such a rebel: “I’m a complete free spirit, so, even though you don’t see it, I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one’s around. Or roll into a bar and get [bleeped] up, and dance with my top off. It’s just that no one ever sees that, because I have great real friends who never let me do it when I would get caught.”
On her artifice: “I hate the truth so much that I would prefer a giant dose of bull[bleep] any day,” she says. Vogue interviewed Gaga in Japan where she says she finds her most ardent fans. “I think . . . it has to do with the obsession with fantasy. I think I sort of just fit right in over here.”
On her perfume: She said yes to Coty’s request on the condition that the company not only conjure scent notes to her specification but figure out how to create a liquid that appears black in the bottle, but when sprayed, becomes clear. (After all, she points out, “The fragrance is called Fame. It must be black. It must be enticing. You must want to lick and touch and feel it, but the look of it must terrify you.”)
That damn meat dress is back: The reinvention of the meat dress is one of thehighlights of the Born This Way Ball). “We were talking about putting the showtogether, and I said, OK, what if I was someone’s grandma and I was going to a concert tonight. How would I know that it was a Gaga show? And we all just sort of looked at each other and said,’The meat dress.’”
Why she makes music: “I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius.’ I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss theperson you came with that evening, or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.”
Did they photoshop away all her tattoos?
