Real talk: This Lady Gaga video for Thierry Mugler’s Spring 2012 collection is so out of control, so twitchy, and outrageously Le Fashion Video that it has to have been inspired by Mugato’s Derelicte collection. I mean it’s straight outta “Zoolander,” right? Gaga plays a weird diamond-toothed rave kid with a biiiiiiiit of a Mugler obsesh. [YouTube]

Lady Gaga didn’t think one video for “Yoü and I” was enough, so she has also created six “fashion films” about each of the vid’s assorted characters. She’s shown us the Nymph and the Bride and, today, she released the third video in the series about her mermaid alter ego, Yüyi. The film, called “Haus of Ü Featuring Yüyi,” shows Gaga as a mermaid writhing in a director’s chair, smoking a cigarette, and being carried out of a trailer. And yes, she has gils. Lots of them.
But what I find most notable about this video: all those umlauts! Keep reading »
Long before Lady Gaga horrified us with Joe Calderone and Kat Von D made us gag by falling for Jesse James, the two apparently met. Kat gave Gaga a tattoo in 2008 and the whole thing was captured on camera. In this video, Gaga says that she is a singer but moreso a “songwriter for other people,” before bragging that the night before, she worked with New Kids on the Block. And she says that she got her first tattoo at age 17, using a fake ID. But wait—Kat is giving her the tattoo in a driveway so she can do the same design on Gaga’s car? I don’t quite get it. [EW]

Behold, a far too awesome tweet posted on Monday by Ralph Macchio, aka “The Karate Kid.” Wow, he is right. Lady Gaga‘s male alter ego, Jo Calderone, does look an awful lot like him. Which gives me an idea for Gaga’s next over-the-top costume—a bathtub and shower curtain, naturally. [World of Wonder] Keep reading »
Did you take a close look at Lady Gaga‘s groin area at the VMAs, when she appeared all night as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone? According to Us Weekly, if you had, you might have noticed a little somethin’ somethin’ down there. (And no, this isn’t a rehash of the rumor from 2009 that Gaga is a hermaphrodite.) According to the mag, Lady Gaga put on fake sideburns and fake stubble to make herself look more convincing, and also sported a prosthetic penis to help her get into character. While I still think her appearance totally bombed, this makes me slightly more interested.
Something that doesn’t? Keep reading »
Well, what do we have here? Lady Gaga’s younger sister Natali Germanotta is getting in on the fashion act. It seems that Gaga Jr.- -who made a small cameo in her sis’s video for “Telephone” — has been contracted to make costumes for the new off-Broadway play “Simon Says.” She’s only 19 years old, but this isn’t her first go-around. She also interned for designer Allison Parris in 2010. So does it pay to be Lady Gaga’s sister? Yes, yes it does. [WWD] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Lady Gaga‘s video for “Yoü and I” was supposed to premiere on MTV at exactly 7:49p.m. However, after it leaked earlier in the week, Gaga jumped the gun on unveiling the video, which features her as mermaid Yuyi and as dude Jo Calderone, as well as rocking her mother’s actual wedding dress. To make it up to MTV, Gaga still sat down with Sway at the anointed time to talk about the video. Because the song has that umlaut in the name, I had wondered if it was a reference to Lüc Carl. And that sure appears to be the case, though perhaps they are broken up after all? “I wrote the song about this guy that I used to date … Sometimes in love, you can’t make it work,” said Gaga. “No matter what you do, there’s this giant boundary between you and someone else. So that’s what it’s about, perceiving in your imagination that there’s something magical inside of you that you can make it work.” Whoa. That’s kinda very true. Keep reading »
When a cockroach wants to shake a tail feather, what music does it prefer? Apparently, Lady Gaga. This summer, four teenagers in an engineering program at New York’s Cooper Union were studying the movement of roaches by hooking them up to electrodes and then exposing them to electric pulses. But soon the roaches got used to the pulses and stopped moving about. Desperate to find a way to get the roaches moving, the guys decided to try playing music for them. They tried Weezer, but got no response from the bugs. Ditto for heavy metal rockers Avenged Sevenfold. But when they started playing Lady Gaga—well, the roaches responded immediately, and never stopped their flapping. And the gross little buggers presumably have no idea that the woman once wore their dream dress, crafted entirely of meat. So what happened here? “The bass in Gaga’s song ‘Bad Romance’ prevented habituation since it’s not consistent,” explained one of the experimenters. I hope Lady Gaga is happy to hear that she has even littler monster fans than she ever anticipated. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Katy Perry is hopping on the mermaid train? Err, tail? Just a few weeks after Lady Gaga unveiled her alter ego Yuki, the mermaid in a wheelchair, and was accused of ripping Bette Midler’s mermaid routine from 1980, Katy Perry is breaching the water and showing off her mermaid costuming for a new video. So, will Gaga accuse Katy of stealing the idea? Not directly. But Gaga’s creative director, Laurieann Gibson, did tweet, “Proud of my artist #1 in the world @Ladygaga her vision& passion even though they try to steal a tail there’s only 1 Mermaid, Swim On!!!”
So what do we think—is there enough room for two mermaids in the pop music sea? And another pic of Katy’s costume after the jump. Keep reading »
Lady Gaga has promised us that her 1,000th tweet will be the fourth single off Born This Way, “Yoü and I.” And since we are only eight tweets away, over the weekend Gaga posted the cover art for the single along with the message, “You will never find what you are looking for in love, if you don’t love yourself.” The image is, of course, Gaga herself as her male alter-ego, Joe Calderone. I gotta say—Gaga is a much prettier lady than she is a dude. Also, is the umlaut in “Yoü and I” and ode to Lüc Carl? [NY Mag] Keep reading »
