Lady Gaga As beleaguered Lady Liberty by Suzannah B. Troy
Lady Gaga's fabulous photo by Mario Testino graces the cover of V Magazine and Ms. Controversial is making waves and laughter with this photo shoot!
For more reasons than I can begin to talk about the timing of this photo shoot is spot on and for many readers who don't know me for a very New York reason that few people are aware of. I posted a piece earlier today about getting naked if need be to protest king Mike Bloomberg flushing democracy down the toilet 2 years in a row extending term limits without the people of New York's say so aka vote! This time he got his hand picked Charter Commission to do his dirty work and the city council members that got a 3rd term try without our vote are not saying, "No, I refuse to accept this because this was not people did not vote on this!"
Back to Lady Gaga because she sums up my feeling! The only thing king Mike has not done is put advertising on the Statue of Liberty so this photo with Lady Gaga with Marc Jacobs pushing her in a shopping cart speaks volume but is also pure whimsy.
Fox News reports Lady Gaga earns spot on Vanity Fair's best dressed list and the link is fun to read check it out. Best sentence from the article, "Gaga channels the "Dada Catholic girl" in the spirit of Gypsy Rose Lee and Rosie, the Jetson's robot maid, the magazine says, while Bonham Carter, who says her favorite items of clothing is her "bloomers," is inspired by Vivienne Westwood and Marie Antoinette."
She delights her little monsters. V Magazine hits news stands tomorrow. Thank goodness for Lady Gaga; it is impossible to die of boredom with her around.
