People tend to have strong feelings about Lady Gaga — her music and her fashion and her Little Monster-ism. While Rachel gets the douchechills from her, I tend to think she’s pretty fun. Of course, she stole about a zillion things from Leigh Bowery and other ’80s and 90s club kids, but generally it’s pretty entertaining to see what that crazy bitch has been up to. Here she is in Bucharest, descending into the masses, or trying to walk to her hotel, and just generally making a scene. I am really feeling the gold brocaded Moschino dress, but God, why would you ever wear those tights with it? They seem to have some hideous electronic element to them which is just tack-tack-tacky. Not that I’d expect anything less than that from Gaga. But what do you think of this look? Do you love it, or do you think it should go the way of her stupid tea cup accessory? Answer in the poll after the jump! [Photo: CHP/Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
Lady Gaga tweeted about the inspiration behind her Vogue cover. “Who else sees me channeling RuPaul on the COVER of VOGUE. If only I was as fierce as you bitch. I did try to come for you with that weave,” she said. I get it. I mean, haven’t we all had a RuPaul channeling moment? Sometimes when I’m walking down the street in high wedges, I imagine I’m Ru strutting it up on the catwalk. Of course, some genius on Tumblr made this. WERK! [WOW]
I couldn’t feasibly be any less interested in Lady Gaga‘s Vogue cover. Frankly, I’m shocked that Anna Wintour would even go for it, considering that Gaga is so appallingly uninteresting at this point to everybody except her harem of zealots. I would rather see literally anybody, even Lea Michele, on the September issue. Okay, so maybe not Lea Michele, but why not throw Yo-Landi Vi$$er up there if you’re trying to get weird while remaining reasonably attractive and blonde? Have you never heard music before, that you think Lady Gaga is the poster child for, like, counter-culture and originality? Come at me, little monsters. I get that the message she tries to spread is “love and acceptance,” and hear me out: I am not opposed to love and acceptance, but I am strongly, fundamentally opposed to try-hards. Also, people who refer to themselves in the third person. Hate.
You know what would be really different for Vogue? Putting an actual model on the cover or, you know, a woman who can make herself compelling without wearing 10 Halloween costumes put together while declaring herself “a walking piece of art.” Yes, I resent the hell out of Lady Gaga. Whatever. [NY Mag.com]
As much as I love Lady Gaga, I am slightly suspicious that she injected herself with Muppet DNA a few years ago and is slowly morphing into a hybrid species villain that only Spider Man will be able to contain. Photo evidence #673: this fuzzy hot pink getup she wore to try on wedding dresses with her BFF at the Vera Wang store yesterday. That look on the face of the woman on the left pretty much says it all, no? [Photo: Splash News]
This week saw celebs pretending to care about sports at the ESPY Awards, morning and late show stops by Anne Hathaway and Freida Pinto, supermodels and British actresses running errands, and Lady Gaga impersonating Cher from 1985. Let’s take a look at the best and worst celeb looks of the week!
Your worst fashion nightmare — accidentally exposing your thong- and nylon-clad ass — is Lady Gaga’s style statement du jour. The visible tag is a nice touch. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Hi, welcome to Camp Lady Gaga Is Boring And Pretentious, population 1 and it’s me. I recognize that I am all but vastly, utterly alone in thinking that this “Lady Gaga” character is one of the most stale, uninteresting “personalities” to have ever made her mark on pop culture. David Bowie, Grace Jones, Madonna Ciccone for Christ’s sake — they did it first, and better. It’s not her image I take issue with, it’s the severe, and I think unmistakable, dichotomy between her mask and her music. She’s so avant-garde! She has a lobster on her head! She’s in a meat dress! She’s in an egg! It’s like the womb! Edgy! Individual! Born this way! Lazy, insufferable ra-ra-ra bubblegum pop cribbed from “Express Yourself,” tossed into the mass media music machine! She’s making a perfume called “Fame” that will be a black liquid with “the feeling and sense” of blood and semen and a bottle heavily “inspired by” Thierry Mugler’s Alien. She snagged the upcoming cover of this year’s Vogue September issue. Tell me why, you guys! When is this person going to do something that’s real and unique? I’m not going to hold my breath, but can we please move past Stefani Germanotta? Bring me the next Britney! Whatever happened to the punk rock pop stars?
Ready for The Meat Dress: Redux? Skeevy photographer Terry Richardson just posted this photo of Lady Gaga on stage in Japan, donning a new version of her infamous meat dress. Luckily for the costume department, this one looks to be made of leather instead of raw beef, and I must say I’m digging the trendy tulip shaped skirt. As far as meat dresses go, this updated style is definitely an improvement. [MTV Style]
