A Routy Lady Gaga Lands December Vogue

ladygagavogue

Lady Gaga’s December Vogue culls her inner child atop a table in a musty cake bakery – raucous and all – next to a frazzled Lily Cole.

It appears that the act of picking up Gaga for the December issue has quelled Anna Wintour critics. Judging from the position in space of Lady Gaga with respect to the hapless blond model (left) and Lily Cole, Grace Coddington might have had the notion of Gaga as the rambunctious celebrity at the apex of an industry, that appears deceivingly glamorous looking outside in. Uncloak the veil and you’ll see that the entertainment industry is hides spilled frosting, crushed oranges, rusty walls and peeling paint. But being that a market exists for just about anything, within this mess, Gaga is hot enough to be thrown into the kiln, but she’s immune from the burns of her critics.

Alexander McQueen S/S 2010 Live Stream

Disappointing. We pray that McQueen’s geek Queenies resolve the server issue or momentarily delay the show for us to tune into the live stream. Maybe that’s just wishful thinking. But, you can catch Tweets from Lady Gaga and Elle UK. That’s the best we can hope for, that is unless you’re omniscient.

UPDATE: 2nd streaming at 4:30 EST

Out September Issue Party: Shame on You Lady Gaga

outthebox

I never was a Lady Gaga fan despite my coverage on the omnipresent diva celebrity. She was everywhere during Fashion Week, at after-party, after after-party. I don’t know what my editors would say if they knew I divulged how uncooperative she was in getting interviewed for the September issue, but I’ve said it and now it’s too late. Only VIP and staff were permitted access to the exclusive venue, leaving everyone else waiting in line at the door for over an hour, waiting to see the in vogue icon herself, Lady Gaga. According to Mo’s friend who is buddy buddy with the owner, even the owner of The Box was absent. So surprise, surprise, Gaga decides show up to the overbooked, The Box, one hour after the end of the party, flanked by (of all people) Perez Hilton — I think the gay community was just slapped in the face with a hypocrite’s Chanel handbag. She was decked out from head to toe in white, her head cloaked by what I’ll liken to a fishnet over over sized sunglasses. Despite Aaron Hicklin’s desperation to have Gaga pose for a candid, Gaga refused — although, Noah, Out.com‘s editorial assistant, did manage to snag a few unsuspecting pictures for Out‘s Pop.nography blog. I’m re-posting a few pictures from Noah’s post (Noah, I hope you don’t mind).

Lady Gaga: Shamelessly Addictive

I admit that Lady Gaga has been a part of my post one too many times. After today’s Lady Gaga performance at The Box for Out, I should have her completely detoxed from my system. Let’s hope I don’t relapse. In any case, Gaga performed at Hiro for Marc Jacob’s after-party in nothing more than a nipple and buttock revealing red fishnet stocking, G-string and a halo of hair. Maybe its because of her outlandish outfits, but Lady Gaga is a splitting image of Cher. They both can not afford to appear older than they appear for the sake of her reputation, and come 2030, Gaga will have replaced Cher at the Colosseum of Caesar’s Palace.

Out: Lady Gaga at The Box Invite!

LADYGAGAthebox

Finally, the highly anticipated invite to The Box (and a special performance by Lady Gaga) celebrating Out‘s September Issue came in my email! I blacked out some details because well, I’m not allowed to tell you. I can tell you it’s in several days, but it’s too bad I’m restricted to a solo appearance unless I get special approval.

Frick. Plane tickets are expensive.

Vogue Hommes Japan: Lady Gaga Take 3

Lady Gaga is quite the popular celeb posing pretty in three September Issue covers, all in one September month. First there was scantily neon Lady Gaga (V magazine), then there was scantily va-va-vamp Lady Gaga (Out magazine) and rounding it out is clothed S&M Lady Gaga (Vogue Hommes Japan). You shouldn’t feel compelled to send me hate mail when I tell you that I’m biased and not ashamed to admit that her Out cover sucked the competition dry. How so? For starters, the conclusion of Lady Gaga’s September high in Vogue Hommes Japan, fizzled. Nobuyoshi Araki strapped Lady Gaga in trendy leather and rope, and no doubt the bondage theme is burgeoning, but in an editorial perspective, I don’t get it. I for one am not aroused. What happened to Lady Gaga, the sex icon?

First, the positioning of her face is reminiscent of Facebook ‘Myspace Angle’ shots. Secondly, Araki revisits a Britney Spears-esque crotch shot that was soooo 2007 (and yes, I just compared her to Britney Spears – once again, don’t leave hate mail please). Finally, why is Gaga wearing loose fitting leather? Shouldn’t she be ashamed?

Now, I’m inclined to wonder if the splashes of paint were thrown in as a compliment for an otherwise banal black and white shoot that Kazuhiro Saito, with his chief editing power, desperately attempted to futilely excite. Is she supposed to be the restrained pop star, bubbling to break free and take men and women alike to bed (that’s old news to me)? Or is she a kinky pop star relishing the praise of mainstream masses (no new news there either)? Or did they throw Gaga into an S&M set just for shits and giggles? Is my editorial eye too shallow or am I thinking too hard? I’ve asked too many questions, and that’s not a good sign. What do you think?

P.S. If you’re not convinced about the Lady Gaga’s Out cover, The Cut quipped, “Out magazine, which is hosting the party and published what is possibly the greatest Gaga editorial to date in this month’s issue. You can’t object to that now can you?
