Lady Gaga for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine

Posted on February 06, 2014

Steffi looks fabulous in these pictures. Truly. It’s just that she had to go and ruin the effect by, well, speaking.

 

 

Lady Gaga covers the March 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine in Saint Laurent photographed by Terry Richardson.

On the biggest thing she’s learned: “I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn’t even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn’t feel like fighting anymore. I didn’t feel like standing up for myself one more time—to one more person who lied to me. But January 1, I woke up, started crying again, and I looked in the mirror and said, ‘I know you don’t want to fight. I know you think you can’t, but you’ve done this before. I know it hurts, but you won’t survive this depression.’…I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that’s left. I’m lucky I found one little glimmer stored away.”

On the clothes that she’s worn over the years: “The fashion I’ve acquired over the years is so sacred to me—from costumes to couture, high fashion to punk wear I’ve collected from my secret international hot spots. I keep everything in an enormous archive in Hollywood. The clothes are on mannequins, also on hangers and in boxes with a photo of each piece, and there’s a Web site where I can go to look through everything. It’s too big—I could never sort through it myself! But these garments tell the stories of my life. And then there are the tour pieces. This is the section that is most sacred to me. These are the pieces that have collected energy, joy, and screams from fans all over the world. My fashion is my most prized possession for two reasons: 1) because it is a visualization of all the hard work I’ve put in to get where I am today; 2) because it is a legend to the encyclopedia of my life. It is exactly what I’ve aimed to seep into the artistic consciousness of people all over the world—that life is an art form.”

 

Ow. Ow. Ow. Our eyes. They’ve rolled right out of our heads, darlings. Jesus take the wheel, could her head be any further up her own ass? We’ve always assumed she was some kind of long-form piece of performance art, so it’s kind of disappointing to find out that she just sounds like any other delusional mega-star now.

 

 

 

But like we said; great pics. Very, um… sacred.

And with that, we’re off to another New York Fashion Week show, darlings. You’ll have to fend for yourselves against the shrieking Gaga stans who will no doubt be here soon to harass us all. Have fun with them, kittens, but try not to draw too much blood. It’s ever so hard to get out of the carpets.

    She makes for a fierce doily.

    • Imasewsure

      Yes that is probably my favorite photo of her ever.

  • rkdgal

    Have her nipples been airbrushed away, or has she had them eliminated altogether? The first outfit is amazing; I want to know how it works. The bottom hoop does seem to be crying out for two tiny motorcyclists riding around the inside, though.

    • Lucía Gavello

      I love this idea, maybe tiny versions of herself in the second outfit riding bedazzled bikes.

    • leahpapa

      Motorcycle-stunt-cage-skirt FTW.

  • Janet B

    Can’t anyone get her out of those giant platforms?

    • Lucía Gavello

      Seriously, they give me vertigo.

      • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

        Forget the vertigo, they make my ankles snap and cry in pain by just trying to imagine what it would be like to wear them – let alone walking in them.

    • mrspeel2

      Since she’s been back from her operation & I see her in platform shoes, I can’t help but wonder if they didn’t help contribute to that problem in the first place.

    • Wowitsemily

      My bet is it’s a height thing. She’s 5’1″ (without platforms). If I wouldn’t be afraid of heights from them, AND they didn’t look absolutely crazy, I’d probably do the same (I’m around the same height).

  • gayle

    I am choosing to ignore who took these photos and just say she look good. As for the quotes…she is exhausting to me.

    • gabbilevy

      For once, my complaint is only that he sucks as a human, not that the photos are terrible. Because they’re actually kind of great. But… he sucks.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      These pictures are kinda cool on its own, then you made me go back and see who took them and now I’m all “Can’t believe it’s Terry Richardson!”.

    • Vtg Fashion Library

      I just keep thinking of walking through that warehouse of mannequins and being totally creeped out.

  • TrixieConQueso

    Ditto, Uncles, Ditto. Put a sock in it, sister. Step away from the mirror.

  • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

    Bazaar needs to sack their photoshop artist for what they did to her cleavage on the cover. And Terry Richardson, ugh.

    • Paigealicious

      I think Terry is like, her personal photographer, or something.

    • MK03

      Yeah, but considering what his photos usually look like, these belong in a damn museum.

  • Kat

    She has such an interesting face. I love her photo shoots, but I do try and skip the interview whenever possible. But can I just say, for as outspoken as she is on certain issues … she works with Terry Richardson? Ew.

    • Evan

      Well she worked with R. Kelly too. I like her, but I find some of the people she chooses to work with questionable to say the least.

      • Lupe Torres-Cater

        Was JUST going to add the very same thing. I really wanted to like the song, but the fact that she worked with R. Kelly…very disappointing. So she devotes time to defending the LGBT community (which I’m in complete support of), but if you’re a victimized underage black girl, Gaga could care less. And there are multiple girls who have come forward about his abuse.

        • Evan

          I think that’s why she did a remix of the song with Christina. To distance herself from him with the new evidence or allegations. It’s also why the music video with him never came out, which the idea of was even more disgusting because Terry shot it.

          • Lupe Torres-Cater

            Thanks, Evan, I’m glad to know that. Hopefully I can listen to that version guilt free (sort of) because, dammit, I really can’t prevent myself from dancing when it comes on.

          • Evan

            I love that song too. I definitely think it makes it less cringe worthy. Though saying “Do what u want with my body” is kind of a questionable lyric, no matter how Gaga tries to justify it in interviews.

          • demidaemon

            As long as it’s consensual (which the line seems to imply), I have no problems with it.

          • Lupe Torres-Cater

            Right?! I have to pretty much sing along like I’m singing to my husband or someone else with whom I have mutual respect and have chosen to get turnt up and freaky with. I’m a weirdo, I know…

          • Evan

            Same. I always have to pretend that it’s consensual and that I’m not just saying it to a complete stranger in a drunken stupor. Then it veers into “Blurred Lines” territory.

        • oyeyemi808

          Didn’t know he was found guilty…. get over yourself!!!

      • Kat

        That’s right, “Do What You Want” with a convicted rapist. It’s hypocritical to say the least and she really gets no flack for it. She built this woman warrior image up for herself, the least she could do is pretend it’s genuine.

        • Sarah

          He was acquitted. Not that that makes it okay – believe me I get you – but maybe that’s why ppl think it’s okay to work with him?

          • Kat

            Perhaps. But the content of the song to work on with him … it’s a fine line to walk.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

            Wasn’t the basis of his acquittal that he definitely did it to the person in the tape who definitely appeared underage BUT it couldn’t be confirmed that the person on the tape was the person accusing him in court?

          • Sarah

            Something like that. I know the trial was basically a farce – like six years after the fact, many continuations, many technicalities, definitely shady.

          • oyeyemi808

            was it a farce because he wasn’t convicted or is it your Hate???

          • Evan

            Idk, but they had plenty of video evidence.

          • poorellensmith

            I think that’s exactly what it was, foodycatAlicia. A farce, to be sure.

          • Aurumgirl

            He might have been acquitted on one charge, but he also settled out of court several times with other girls who accused him.

        • Evan

          I think he was acquitted actually, but there’s too much evidence and allegations that he actually did it.

          • Kat

            Gotcha. I knew there was a ton of evidence but I wasn’t aware that he was acquitted.

        • oyeyemi808

          Show me where saw/read that he was convicted of Anything.

      • Malibufire

        Because she looks at Donatella and sees herself. (And vice-versa.) If you love the mirror as much as Lady Gag does, what could be more satisfying than seeing another version of yourself?

  • Adrianna Grężak

    Don’t get me wrong, depression is a very serious issue and it should not be stigmitized. But the “tortured artist” responses are starting to sound contrived, considering the giant commerical success she’s had the past few years

    • Imasewsure

      Yes I’m rolling my eyes at her Artiste posey-ness in every single interview she’s ever given but we’re also assuming that she is not talking about actual depression here. We certainly wouldn’t make fun of that

    • AnneElliot

      “Life is an art form” just made me roll my eyes x1000.

  • mjude

    have fun boys, your bitter kittens will be with you in spirit. as for gaga. I kinda like the looks

  • SewingSiren

    Cover: Cher , The blonde years.
    1. 1939 World’s Fair , Queens, New York
    2. Evil Knievel, the Las Vegas years.
    3. Lucy Westenra in Bram Stroker’s Dracula.

    • MoHub

      I got more of Vegas Elvis in number 2.

      • SewingSiren

        Style wise, they had a lot in common.

  • Imasewsure

    Love the pictures. They are everything I like about her… the words are hilarious (of course I’m assuming that her definition of depression is just self-delusional ennui not actual depression). Can live with the second quote about her fashion archive (as long as I ignore the last sentence). Still love these photos!!

    • Lucía Gavello

      But DARLING, how can you ignore the depth of “LIFE IS AN ART FORM”, does it not seep right into your artistic consciousness like Gaga’s boobs through a doily?

    • FrigidDiva

      Yeah, that whole line about seeping into the artistic consciousness made me roll my eyes so hard I think I might have had a seizure.

  • Sarah

    Methinks we’re mixing our definition of depression with a hearty dose of Narcissistic Artiste, Steffi. Please, refrain from seeping on me, if you don’t mind. I don’t want to be possessed of a desire to put sparkly bags on my shoes.

    • demidaemon

      Geez, I love Gaga as much as the next gay but even I can’t with much of what’s in this post, both fashion and soundbyte wise.

  • @Biting Panda

    But you guys, she couldn’t even feel her own heartbeat!! How could you be so callous as to not break into your own tears, just reading that? She was DEPRESSED y’all. For like, ten or fifteen whole minutes. You don’t know her pain.

    I like her short hair.

    • Sarah

      I know I feel unbelievably lucky she found that one glimmer stored away, or we would not be here today, basking in her glory, that’s for sure.

      • Janet B

        That glimmer helped her recover so very quickly

      • kimmeister

        It was, of course, stored away in her enormous Hollywood archive. It was mislabled “glitter” so she couldn’t find it for a few days.

        • Sarah

          Once she did, she was able to find the strength to quash her disillusionment, climb up onto her Serious Shoes, and being spreading Art to the World once again. Bless us all.

          • kimmeister

            Is that what I’m feeling, Gaga Art Blessing? I had it confused with a rash.

    • charlotte

      She was probably mad because her tears didn’t come out rainbow-colored.

      • leahpapa

        They’re working on that technology.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Thank God for that glimmer she found. Is she a magpie or something?

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        It might have been some glitter left over from one of her outfits.. maybe a stray Swarovski.. :)

        • formerlyAnon

          No, no. That was glimmer she had harvested from one of her secret international hotspots of Fashion. The Swarovski is safely stored next to the Sacred Tour Pieces section of the Archive.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Well we knew she was SUFFERING because she was walking around London barefoot with teartracks on her brave, beautiful face.

      • marlie

        OMG… that was her “Depressed Period” alright. It’s all an act.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      Completely off topic but I just have to tell you your Avatar makes me smile every time I see it. Thanks for that.

  • FrigidDiva

    As one who has suffered with and been treated for depression during my college years and early 20′s I find her quotes on her “depression” really patronizing and artificial. Maybe she genuinely was depressed, but the whole thing seems so affected, like another part of her performance art which just really rubs me the wrong way. I think she’s a talented performer but she takes herself way too seriously.

    • Sarah

      You said it – she takes herself seriously enough – you don’t have to. I also suffer every day from actual, clinically diagnosed depression, and there is no way I would describe it that way to a magazine. Brush it off, my friend, it’s a lark.

      • FrigidDiva

        Exactly, I can say with all certaintly I’ve never looked for or found that one glimmer that was stored away. Hard work and the will to take it day by day? Yes. Glimmer? No.

    • @Biting Panda

      When I hear her say “depressed” I take it the same way I take myself when I’m bitching about how awful my life is. You know, my employed, married to my love, healthy children having life that some days feels like my bored, trapped, won’t I ever kiss a new boy, they’re driving me bonkers, all you people leave me alone life. Same life, different day. So while I appreciate that everyone gets the funks, she needs to be more careful throwing around the word Depression and recognize the difference in the two.

      • Sarah

        Good point, Bitey. I like the way you put it.

      • Jessica Freeman

        Yes, its the “people are being mean to me mommy!” phase of her life.

      • FrigidDiva

        Very well stated!

    • Ginger

      There’s a distinct difference in being depressed and suffering from depression. The latter is debilitating and affects not only you, but every single person you know and love and that loves you back (said the woman married to a man who suffers from depression). I’m not a touchy-feely person and I certainly don’t get offended like most people, but her remarks are way off and insensitive. She suffers from diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain…not depression.

      • Stella Zawistowski

        I have heard “diarrhea of the mouth” but not “constipation of the brain” before. Now I feel the need to use both in a sentence at least 3 times today.

      • alyce1213

        ^^^ Yes.

      • demidaemon

        There is also the physical effects of depression, which she may be suffering from but that would be entirely due to her poor choices in footwear.

        • @Biting Panda

          She needs Lyrica and Keds, equally.

          • demidaemon

            Man, wouldn’t you kill to see a Lyrica commercial featuring Lady Gaga? It would be hilarious.

          • Sarah

            The drugs moth flies in, finds Gaga gloomily muttering “They LIED to me! LIES! And my fashion archive website is down!” Then it alights on her dome, and she is suddenly transformed into a stilt-footed vision of glimmering ART. All is right with the world…

          • demidaemon

            PERFECT. Let’s start a kickstarter for this!

      • kimmeister

        Indeed. The word logorrhea must have been coined with people like her in mind.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Today in the UK it is “Time to Talk Day” – a day to raise awareness of mental health issues, start conversations about it and destigmatise it. So, thank you for sharing your experience.

      • FrigidDiva

        I think that’s really why her comments set me off, there’s still such a stigma in this country about mental health issues and for her to make light of it with her comments just really set me off. She has such a public platform that if she genuinely IS suffering from depression (which based on her comments really doesn’t seem likely) it would be be fantastic for her to put the spotlight on the issue, instead we get her artistic woe is me routine. End of rant.

    • marlie

      Generally, people who suffer from depression don’t go around talking about how depressed they are. There are always exceptions, of course, but those people who turn it on for attention give *actual* depression a bad name and are misleading to people who aren’t familiar with it.

  • Ginger

    It blows my mind how completely self-absorbed these people are. No, dear uncles, I don’t believe her head could be any further up her own ass. Bitch makes me stabby and her music isn’t even that interesting and definitely not groundbreaking. UGH…

  • decormaven

    Are her feet afraid to touch the ground? I think she should get someone to design some hover shoes so she can just float a couple inches off the ground at all times. Of course, all the hot air from these quotes could probably propel her for a while.

    • Sarah

      Hahaha!

  • sagecreek

    She should ditch the shtick more often, she looks fabulous.

    I was amused by the whole “I licked depression all by myself” crap…first off, this magazine went to press before Jan 1, so spare us the faux-revelation, and even if its true? Handling depression for a whole five weeks is hardly noteworthy. Let me know how you’re doing in October, Steffi. Grrr.

  • prettybigkitty

    Poor baby. It would make me sad to have a warehouse full of couture. NOT!

  • Rand Ortega

    Totally bypassed the commentary. She looks absolutely amazing. For once, I really appreciate the spoiler.

  • Patrick Cleary

    I assume she’s still taking the piss out of everyone in her responses. Or she believes it. Either way, it’s hilarious and I want to go to the archive with the mannequins, because that would be awesome.

    • Anna

      I think that would be awesome too. An excessive and Gaga version of Cher Horowitz’s virtual/archive closet.

    • FrigidDiva

      I wonder if that’s where she also keeps her most recent collection of truly terrible wigs?

  • Anna

    She’s kind of reminding me of Miley Cyrus in the cover shot, is this a Terry Richardson side effect? Pictures are great, otherwise. Interview and the over the top hubris are unintentionally funny.

    • @Biting Panda

      I think STDs are the only real Terry Richardson side effect. That and the fact I will harshly judge any celebrity of clout who agrees to work with him.

      • Anna

        No arguments here!

  • ringthing

    Hopefully the meat dress is in cold storage.

    • Lucía Gavello

      HAHAHAHAHAHA… I’m crying right now, and it’s not from rolling my eyes.

    • FrigidDiva

      I’m guessing it’s jerky by now.

      • AnneElliot

        Seriously, I think it IS jerky — I saw her on Graham Norton’s talk show afterward and she did talk about that. She was actually really sweet on the show — a fan had made teeny little copies of some of her outfits and gave them to her on the show. But this was a couple of years ago, so she may have become enamored of herself, based on the quotes.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Keeping a healthy sense of perspective must become more difficult for celebs given the quantum leap in hype, with the internet, social media, etc. Steffi, just take some deep, cleansing breaths and chill.

  • Bertha

    Sick of her overthetop’isms. Gaga devote some more time to your music, go to more piano concerts and less fashion shows.

    • Imasewsure

      No no keep the fashion shows too… just ditch the cray cray

  • TRSTL

    Speechless as the astonishing level of vain self absorbed absurdity she is displaying here. Seriously? STFU…….

  • Glam Dixie

    Her life is so dramatic! Everything she does is amplified and special in her own special eyes! I bet her bowels move super dramatically too!

  • ModernDowager

    She and Miley have almost switched faces

  • ModernDowager

    Oh, and when did everyone start calling “Yves Saint Laurent” just “Saint Laurent”? I missed the memo

    • emmessell

      The brand officially changed names.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Summer 2012 I think the rebrand was.

      • ModernDowager

        geez where have I been

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

          Doing rather more important things with your time than remembering trivia like that, I suspect!

      • boweryboy

        Yep. Ever since Hedi Slimane became creative director he dropped the “Yves” and moved the design studio from Paris to L.A.

        I think it was some sort of egomanical flexing of muscle on his part and so far, in my opinion, it hasn’t worked. YSL has slipped off the fashion radar in the last year and his designs aren’t that much to write home to Mom about.

        • formerlyAnon

          I prefer to view it as a (most certainly accidental) change so the YSL name is not associated with the decidedly less impressive stuff generated under the Saint Laurent brand. (And, yes. I believe Yves Saint Laurent is a Name, and Saint Laurent is a brand. Under-educated snob which I am.)

  • alyce1213

    “There’s an enormous Museum of Moi in Hollywood that I can look at online anytime I want. It’s like the Vatican, so sacred. It’s like praying . . . to myself”

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      The thing I don’t understand about this is.. how come she has not shared this Museum of Moi with the rest of us?

      This is so unlike her. It must be the depression causing this rare lapse of not shoving everything about her into our faces..

      Perhaps when she cheers up she will give us all the URL. :)

      • sweetestsith

        Not going to lie, I would LOVE to have that URL… May she recover from her depression soon, and share the magical church with the world.

      • Danielle

        If only there was a search engine she could type her name in to and have millions of pictures pop up, all in one place!

    • Anna

      Indeed. She made a mistake to the lyrics to her own song, it should’ve been, “I live for the way that I cheer and scream for me.”

  • demidaemon

    Wow. On both sides of the equation with very different intonations.

    • Sarah

      Wow, she looks amazing! WOW, she’s vapid and self absorbed? (Guessing)

      • demidaemon

        Pretty much. Although I don’t think there is much of a question mark on the second one and more of a heavy dose of sarcasm.

  • halleygee

    This reminds me of that scene in the movie “Beaches” where Bette Midler’s character is being interviewed and saying things like, “CiCi feels things…deeply…”

    • gsk241

      But enough about me, let’s talk about you… what do YOU think of me?

  • Jessica Freeman

    I really cannot articulate in words the many ways this woman has always annoyed me. I used to at least appreciate that she seemed wise enough to figure out how to make it in the record industry, but I fear now her Art Act is a story she made up but now believes she IS. Irrational hatred has certainly crossed in to full blown rational hatred.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      Whenever she annoys me, I look for that video clip of Christopher Walken reading Pokerface.

      Then I recognise that there is a reason she exists in the world, and it is so that video clip could exist, which is pure gold.

      And so we can laugh at her “outfit art” and cringe at her choice of shoes. :)

      • kimmeister

        Christopher Walken reading Pokerface??? I must look for this. Everything is better when you add Christopher Walken.

        • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

          Yep, just put in Christopher Walken Pokerface on youtube, and don’t be eating or drinking anything while you watch. :)

          It is a true classic. ;)

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Walken reading Pokerface…and the man can dance….and act….OK, off to look for Pokerface

    • marlie

      She’s starting to believe her own crap? Yeah, I see it.

  • Melanie

    totally gagged at “secret international hot spots.” :/

    • paginatrix

      Me too! It was the “my” in front of it that really got me gagging.

      • Melanie

        haha i know. who the fuck are you, austin powers?

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      And anyway, it’s bullshit. GOOP has totally been to all of them.

    • @Biting Panda

      Hot Topic is international??

      • Anna

        They have stores in Canada, so technically, yes. Maybe she went to the Toronto Premium Outlets location.

    • formerlyAnon

      I, broke into audible chuckles. Because, REALLY? That sounds like a 7 or 8 year old making up answers to interview questions.

  • marlie

    I really like all of the pictures except for the one where she’s wearing the steel frame thingy. I agree with all of the kittens who say that she’s channeling Miley. It makes me think of several months ago when she was channeling Donatella… it’s like the Gaga persona is blurring into other ladystars, and there’s less of herself and her own individuality there.

    And as for the soundbites – she’s reaching Goop levels of annoying.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Especially that the German Vogue with Miley has come out. They look like twinsies.

  • Danielle

    SECRET INTERNATIONAL HOT SPOTS I CAN’T

  • altalinda

    Thanks for the palate-cleansing laugh. The further I read into her discussion of the clothes she’s worn, the more I was yearning for a Christopher Guest send up (shades of Spinal Tap).

    • Lori

      OMG, she absolutely needs to be the subject of the next Guest movie. That would be hilarious. Like, laugh until you pee a little bit hilarious. He needs to get right on that.

    Okay, not body shaming here, but has she done something to her face? I never thought she was conventionally pretty before (but I loved her very Italian face and nose) but now she seems prettier, like Jennifer Aniston did after she had her “deviated septum” fixed.

  • suzq

    1. Have you not paid any attention to her vacuous lyrics over the years? What were you expecting? Edith Head?
    2. If she really does suffer from depression, I feel for her. I hope she can find some peace without destroying herself.
    3. She’s 27 for goodness sakes. She’s been on the world stage since the age of 20. I don’t expect her to be very enlightened.

    • AnnaleighBelle

      I’m not sure that focusing single-mindedly on fame from such a young age is conducive to much emotional/character/intellectual development (I’m looking at you, Beyonce).

      I still kind of love Gaga, though. She’s so damned earnest.

    • lunchcoma

      27 is not that young. There are people with jobs that involve responsibility over other people’s lives, people who own homes and businesses, and people who are the parents of several young children at that age.

      I don’t expect her to be enlightened, but I expect her to be self-aware enough to realize that she’s not all that enlightened.

      • boweryboy

        I don’t think self awareness and Lady Gaga go hand in hand. There’s definitely a maturity level involved. She may be more successful than most 27 year olds, but not necessarily as mature.

        I work with a 24 year old who is the shit when it comes to doing her job. I’m over two decades older than her yet her skills impress me. However, when it comes to interpersonal work relations she behaves like a 17 year old high school student, and ain’t nobody got time for that.

      • AnnaleighBelle

        Not so young now, but to begin a single-minded pursuit of fame as a teen kind of crowds other things out. Of course, I can never aspire to huge success, so that’s simply a value judgement on my part.

    • boweryboy

      I’m not quite getting the Edith Head comparison. Was she known for her quips besides designing drool worthy clothing?

  • Malibufire

    ODd on her when she was still trying to be Madonna. Which was a few years back.

  • lunchcoma

    Those aren’t even the most annoying things she said in that interview. This one made me roll my eyes so hard I got eyestrain: “The only good intention to make money is to help others. I want to be Oprah. I want to be Melinda Gates.”

    (So go and do some more charity, and some less attention-seeking. Ideally, that part should come before comparing yourself to others.)

    • formerlyAnon

      Well, I’ll give her that one. Because before you can be Oprah or Melinda Gates you have to acquire the mega-fortune, and while I’m sure she’s rich beyond my imaginings, I doubt she’s in either of their ballparks.

  • vickilu

    That last shot should have been the cover, wow! Whoever made that is awesome.

  • boweryboy

    The photos are fabulous which is shocking considering it’sTerry Richardson. As per usual, I hate her shoes. Those. shoes. Why? And boy, does she sound full of herself.

  • JauntyJohn

    She spoke along these same lines when she was on “Ellen” and to hear her say it.. well, it sounds more sincere than silly. She had this whole thing about the energy of hundreds of thousands of people screaming their love at you and how that sort of gets… okay, it would all sound silly — but never having had a hundred thousand people screaming their love for me (not at the same time, that is…) I have to give her some latitude, against being one of the more interesting things that happen on a red carpet.

    You could not have convinced me these were Terry Richardson if I hadn’t read it myself.

  • MilaXX

    The fashion I’ve acquired over the years is so sacred to me—from costumes to couture, high fashion to punk wear I’ve collected from my secret international hot spots Secret international hotspots?

    Chile please! we can find pictures of every piece of clothing you wear. Listen, you album flopped, but you can still take good pictures. Just get over yourself a bit. mmm ‘kay?

    • kerryev

      ‘Secret international hotspots?’ If she finds out this means ‘stores’ we’re going to get some fibbing assistants into a lot of trouble.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Oh, brother.

  • Jangle57

    She says: I keep everything in an enormous archive in Hollywood. Am I the only one who pictures that meat dress rotting away somewhere or hanging in it’s own freezer getting freezer burn?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      When the feds came for Gaga’s meat dress, it was frozen so stiff it took two days to thaw it for an autopsy….

    • camsteerie

      You are not alone.

  • Jeannie Shmina Greenwald

    Meh.

  • nannypoo

    The fashion I’ve acquired over the years is crammed into a couple of closets. I call it my clothes.

  • formerlyAnon

    I will chortle over “my secret international hot spots” from which she collects her fashion, forever. Or as long as I can hold it in my brain, which has a rather small space reserved for Gaga-isms.

  • cocohall

    It’s hard to believe that this is the same woman that participated in the send-up of herself on SNL where she played the old, has-been Gaga. That sketch had some genuine moments of humor and also charm. And then this. The thing that saddens me most about Gaga is that she has taken her “Born this Way” anthem that celebrated self-acceptance (while pinching Madonna’s melody,) and through some sort of sad, reverse alchemy, come to “Do What you Want with My Body.” I have never taken her that seriously, but I believe that many of her Little Monsters did. At the core, I think she never believed the first song, and has actually lived the second. Which might explain her anger and sense of depression. As for people lying to her, I think she has lied to herself, which is the worst sort of lie. But I’m all for second acts and she does have some actual talent. Come on Steffi, pick yourself up, you showbiz trooper! Channel some Liza M. and get on with it!

  • CatherineRhodes

    What a narcissistic little ninny. The clock is ticking on those 15 minutes.

  • LeelaST

    Love her.

  • Agbogun Magichome

    My name is Ashley, I almost took my life because of my ex wholeft me and stop picking my calls. He said do not trust me anymore, I tried to convince him, but he will not believe me until we had a fightand broke up for 8months, after then I realize I can not live withouthim because of the love Ihave for him. I tried everything possible toget him back, but non worked for me, some fake spellcasters scammedme and went away with my money until I came across this man called DR Agbogu, he cast a spell for me and behold my ex came backafter three days, begging me forforgiveness, I was so surprised thatspell caster like DR Agbogu still exist.If anyone here needs some help, with all sincerity, contact DR AGBOGU email:[email protected]

    I don’t mind her quotes. Yeah, she does sound a bitter and defensive in her first answer, she should have kept it a little more professional, but ok.
    Yeah, she’s self obsessed, but then again, she *is* one of the biggest and most iconic super-stars of the last few years.
    I love what she sais about fashion and costumes. I think she really understands fashion as a form of art, much more than she understands “high art”.

  • girlsaturday

    Is ‘secret international hot spots’ celebrity code for some kind of tropical rash?

  • Michael Rios

    It’s not that I feel strongly about GaGa, but this article is a seminal example of something I’ve noticed in TLo’s recent posts that really bothers me: Namely the dismissive usage of the term ‘fangirls’ (or ‘Gaga stans’ in this article whatever it’s all variations on one stupid term) in order to invalidate any commenter with a differing opinion before they opine. We get it, fans can be crazy, especially ones in the age of the internet. That doesn’t mean they don’t have real thoughts or defensible opinions. If anything it makes more sense that even with a bias some fans would be well enough informed to defend something they care about. I don’t get it, it seems really high school to act that way if you’re actually confident in your argument. TLo has always done a good job of acquitting themselves when asked to present their impressions on something so I’m not sure why they’re weakening their own arguments by being imperious as a sign-off. Okay be fabulous and opinionated like every gay man on earth claims they are, whatever, but if the best conclusion you’ve got is a subtle “and if you feel the opposite you’re stupid’ clause then I start to feel that maybe you just want to push your position onto the rest of us without a thought. I don’t even enjoy GaGa as someone more than a passing amusement but I think it’s precious that TLo calls her up her own ass when they used to worship her just like every other part of the queer community when it was easy (she’s… pretty much saying the same shit she always has if I’m not mistaken). Fairweather fan-support is still shallow, petty, and makes them seem like they’re pretty up their own asses too. I’d say “sorry bout it” but my parents taught me not to lie.

      Well, when you decide that words and phrases mean exactly what you want them to mean, you can argue anything you want. But here’s the thing: as much as it helps your argument to pretend that our use of “Gaga stans” here also means “Fangirls” and “any commenter with a differing opinion,” they all don’t, in fact, mean the same thing.

      Also, this? ” like every gay man on earth claims they are, whatever,” and “just like every other part of the queer community” is highly prejudicial. If you have a disagreement with us, then talk to us. If you want to hang the entirety of the “queer community” and “every gay man on earth,” then you are kindly invited to go check yourself, because you’ve pretty much stepped over the line marked “bigotry.”

      And finally, your argument relies not just on changing the meaning of words and bigoted phrasing, but also on outright falsehoods, because a 2-minute check of most comments sections on this site are FULL of disagreement and also because no one in their right mind could ever claim we “worshipped” Gaga at one time and have now “turned” on her.

      You see, “disagreement” is when someone says “T Lo, I think you’re wrong here because of reasons.” A stan response? Well, it lies, obfuscates terms, tends to sling bigotry when it suits them, and calls us names like “shallow,” “petty,” and “precious” because by their very nature, stans cannot argue or defend their object of worship without doing these things. They can only argue from a highly emotional and largely dishonest place, much like a child having a tantrum. Hence, our tendency to dismiss them out of hand.

      I’d say “sorry,” but I learned a long time ago not to accept a huge, steaming pile of bullshit masquerading as level-headed debate.

  • Kikishua

    The curve of the eyeshadow doesn’t look even (on the inner side) – so I choose to be bugged by that rather than the pretentiousness of her forever burbling on about Being Art.

    Can’t be bothered with the interview. These photos are terrible.
