Fug the Cover: Lady Gaga


Call me crazy, but I liked this better when Top Model did it. IN 2008. Does this mean that next year, Gaga and Italian Vogue will be waxing poetic about the art of the smize?

    Every year about this time, I feel a siesmic shift as universal forces align. Sure enough, twitter confirms the Fug Girls have been hobnobbing with TLo again! Is it wrong of me to wish that everyone in this assorted foursome were straight and unmarried, so they could come together and create the most fabulous babies on the planet?? Have fun at Lincoln Center, girls!

    Add: Oh, and Lady G needs to take a page from Madge’s book and pace herself. You’ll never have a daughter debuting a clothing line that’s a tribute to your style three decades previous at this rate, m’dear!

    What is this even supposed to mean? Is she backhand slapping PETA? Is she a spokesperson for Kobe beef? There’s not even a catchy slogan explaining that the pic reflects her newfound Atkins Diet. If there were a point to this, it would still be fug, but at least there would be a possibility of thought provoking fug in the ilk of SWINTON. This is just stupid. Although, I might be biased because I can’t stand her.

    Can’t believe I missed the ANTM premiere last night. Didn’t realize it was starting already. Although, I would have had to watch most of it on mute, if the shriekiness of past groups is any indication.

    And it doesn’t surprise me that Gaga is recycling an old ANTM bit. Most of her so-called edginess is stuff that Madonna was doing 20 years ago. She’s not nearly as revolutionary as she seems to think she is.

    At this point, I’ve stopped comparing her with Madonna, and see her more as an updated David Bowie, Elton John or Peter Gabriel.

    Guys with singing/song writing talent who had insane stage personas that helped bring their music to the forefront.

    Girl can write a catchy tune, has a decent voice, and by all accounts puts on a good concert. Time to dial it back, Ms. Germanotta.

    Is it weird that I find raw meat more attractive than cooked meat?

    Also the cover is missing a sausage necklace.

    Thanks for the “link” Gina. Ha, ha. Get it? Link?

    Yeah, Beatles in 66, meat bikini grill chef in 03, meat dress in Ottawa, Canada, museum in 91, yadda, yadda.

    I do think she is awesome in many ways. This is not one of them.

    Dial it back indeed, as per CC and Chasmosaur.

    Ya know, I was totally cool with Gaga for a while. Her music is catchy and danceable and fun…but then she started talking. Like all the time. Nonstop really. And she said ridiculous things about her creative vagina and she never wore pants, even to baseball games. And now, I can’t look at her without heaving a deep, deep sigh of over-it-ness. So, yeah, over her style, over her, go away you recycled wannabe.

    I liked it best when the columns of the Uffizi were covered in meat. This whole meat thing is really becoming pretty blase. I do like Gaga’s hair (minus the rib-eye).

    And though Blake Lively looked lovely, GO IRISH!

    the cover is a big yawn for me. I love Gaga, but I think I liked her better in her hipster club kid “just dance” ‘poker face” days. Then she went full on crazy/over the top/attention whoring/avant guard phase which was at least interesting. This latest phase is just sort of 80′s Madonna redux and i’m not loving it.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with anything, but I just wanted to say, in a non-crass way, how nice it is to see a woman with real breasts. It’s amazing how rare they’re becoming anymore. Maybe they should appear on the endangered list?

    If it had been bacon, I’d have EATEN IT UP! (get it?) Bacon is meat-candy. Ga-ga? Not so much. It seems she actually has some musical talent, so why does she have to be a semi-nude freak show to get attention?

    The hilarious thing is The Key of Awesome made a parody of Bad Romance:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWxTGJ3TK1U

    and one of the lines is how she wears a bathing suit made out of RAW MEAT. It seemed like a stupid line, in an otherwise hilarious parody, but now it’s like they were psychic!

    @Chasmosaur, Bowie would never pose with raw meat on his naked person. Ever. Neither would John or Gabriel, for that matter. *try to picture it* No, this is one of those things that someone will deem “edgy” and “signifying more symbolic reason” to which I say Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. She tries too hard. And after hearing she was hospitalized 6X in one year because of excessive dieting, I’m feelin’ the irony.

    It is telling that SWINTON manages to be SWINTON in a plain navy column dress. Okay, maybe that IS a muppet tarantula, but she’s covered in drab navy from neck to toe and still manages to be a million times more risque, exciting, and provocative than a naked Gaga in flank steaks.

    It is telling by comparison that SWINTON manages to be so incredibly SWINTON in a plain navy column dress. Okay, maybe that IS secretly a muppet tarantula on her shoulder! However, she’s covered in drab navy from neck to toe and still manages to be a million times more risque, exciting, and provocative than a naked Gaga in flank steaks. Think about it, Gaga. Think.

    @Cecily -

    True. But they weren’t women and this level of near nudity wasn’t overly hip when they were out and about. Bowie’s transgender look was pretty damn shocking for the day, and Gabriel was all about the epic theatricality, and Elton John was just about being over the top. She’s got a little bit of all three rockin’.

    Time will tell if her musical contributions are up to their par, but she’s their equal in performance art, I think.

    I’m not a big fan, or (nor?$ a detractor but it seems like her face I’d getting almost as generic as her music? Either they’re teaching her to pose better or girlfriends had some work. I kinda liked her when she was big nosed and androgynous, maybe she is just following in madonnas footsteps. Next thing we know shell have a fake English accent, a Latino toyboy and chipmunk cheeks.
