Lady Gaga covers V Magazine for the bazillionth time. They love her… Lady Gaga is EVERYWHERE these days. I’m already sick of her, and her album isn’t even out yet. She’s promoting HEAVILY the new album, and here’s more of that.
There will be 4 Gaga covers, and V Magazine has only released two so far. I actually don’t mind them – and the one above isn’t half bad! She looks like Joan Jet. Or Kristen Stewart playing Joan Jet. I can’t tell. There isn’t much from the interview yet, but here’s what I’ve got.
She wants to be many icons, in many forms: “I thought about Pop Art and how the dominant subject matter was always the celebrity or the pop-culture icon on the canvas, and then I thought to myself, But what I have tried endlessly to become through my work is a celebration of my differences through art, with myself as the canvas, as opposed to me as the subject matter, being put on the canvas. I don’t want to be an icon in just one form. I want to be an icon in many forms. So that’s where it began.”
Her look on the cover: “That look was very hard for me because that is how I looked when I was 19 until I was 21 years old … Maybe longer. I got my hair cut like that when I was 18 and all these really painful things happened during this time.”
She has the ability to endure pain: “I have an ability to experience pain for long periods of time – to endure it, whether it’s mental pain or physical pain. I think it’s because of my discipline as a child. I studied piano and then theater and then dance, so I have this ability to endure long periods of pain. But as a result, when I became an adult at 18, I allowed myself to stay in bad situations because I was able to take the pain. Although I was able to withstand a challenge for that period of time in my youth, the results were destructive. I was left a shell. Does anyone really know what I went through to get here?”
Overcoming an eating disorder and a drug problem: “Art was always the thing that drove me forward in these challenging and painful circumstances.”
This girl really drives me nuts. I think she’s so pretentious it’s painful. I think there must be a better way to handle fame and whatnot than what she does. I’ve gotta hand it to her – it DID get her to where she is now…. but I find myself rolling my eyes at her constantly.
Yesterday she released an incredibly bizarre video of herself telling us to not buy into all the criticism over her new single. She also tweeted this: “Dont focus on ANY blogger criticism. I have been a producer/songwriter/musician for over 10 years. Trust the artist bloggers are not critics… #STOPHarassingTheArtist we are here to entertain you.”
Yesterday afternoon she stepped out with a bunch of paint all over her face. All in the name of art, of course. Zzzzz.
