Lady Gaga Does Vanity Fair And Elle UK January 2012

  • Pin it

January 2012 magazines start pouring in. Vanity Fair January 2012 with Lady Gaga on the cover is pretty Christmas-y and pretty impressive at the same time. It’s Annie Leibovitz’s work, it should be a masterpiece!

Elle UK too has Lady Gaga on their January 2012 cover, this time by Matt Irwin. Only she’s wearing McQueen (from the Spring 2012 collection). And she actually got two covers – an orange one and a mint green one. Portrait – style. I’m curious to know what’s inside! Aren’t you?

So January 2012 starts with one of the biggest stars the world has to offer right now: Lady Gaga. Fashion Magazines swoon around her, comme d’habitude, wagging their stylish tails to have her on their covers and portray her unusual Lady-ness. No objection there. However, I have to ask if I’m the only one getting tired of Lady Gaga?

And I do not mean that in an over and done with way but more in an “always – over – the – top” way. Maybe I should just close my eyes and surrender to this wave of praise and invest all my future fashion fantasies in Lady Gaga. Our Lady of Fashion. And Style. And Music. And whatever else the world needs. (each and every time I miserably fail at seeing Gaga’s substance. Sure she wraps in a most eccentric, flamboyant and impressive cloak, but isn’t there anything she keeps to herself anymore?) (fragments of her interviews here and here)

Okay granted the Vanity Fair cover is great & rather glamorous but it looks very Christmas-ish for a January issue.
To me Gaga peaked musically & in creativity with Alejandro. She’s been mediocre & flirting with the ‘establishement’ ever since. She may wear all the fantastique clothes in the world in fabulous fashion magazine editorials shot by the best photographers but there’s no mystery with Gaga anymore. Yes mystery is the essence of real stardom. She’s lost it due to such over exposure. She’s done in 4 years what Madge achieved in 20. What’s left…a burnout? I wish her well though because in her interviews she does seem genuinely friendly & affectionate. Maybe she just needs a fresh start with a new crew & management. *shrugs shoulders*

…..and just be singer/songwriter. Not a singer who’s a product of marketing to grab fast lots of money. I 100% agree with what you said DollyBird.
I have had a hard to watch her latest video Marry The Night (yes, that’s the title?). Gosh, 13,5 minutes long….Everything was stolen, again, and the song is nothing special at all. Not even a bit catchy as her first songs were.
