EXCLUSIVE: Lady Gaga Gets Real About Fashion and Fame for V

Mario Testino/V Magazine

What look Lady Gaga will rock next is anyone’s guess. But if there’s one thing we can count on from the singer, it’s that whatever she wears — or does — it’ll be outrageous. In the Fall issue of V magazine, she lives up to her wild-child persona with stunning, super-bronzed images shot by Mario Testino — and we have the exclusive first look. In a frank interview, the unorthodox cover-girl dishes about her unique take on style, saying, “Us Weekly putting me on a worst-dresses list? I couldn’t care less. If Karl Lagerfeld called me an ugly hag, then I’d be upset. Because it’s Karl Lagerfeld.” As unique as her look is, however, she finds that she still sometimes gets pigeonholed. “When I was a brunette, they called me Amy Winehouse,” she says. “When I was a blonde, they called me Madonna. Then they called me Christina, then Gwen. I just don’t think most people’s reference points go back very far.” And although she’s achieved global fame, the singer can still get dazzled by celebrity. And who wouldn’t, after finding out that Madonna is in the audience of your N.Y.C. concert? “My sister texted me and she was like, ‘Madonna is 15 feet away from me.’ This is awesome! I just remember thinking, ‘wow, this is exactly what I wanted.'” Pick up V on newsstands September 1st.

I like Lady Gaga, whatever she wears. And I like the way she retorts back to what everybody says about her. I find her sense of humor amazing, she has a right to be up there with the stars. She’s truly courageous for what she’s achieved. Typical of an Aries. Yeah! You Go Gaga!

WHOA TO MUCH FAKE TANNER………. ;d

Go GAGA on

She dresses weirdly, but that is part of the act. That is what got your attention for the industry and you to sit up and listen to her music and get her name out there. What do you think they taught her at NYU? To sit back and dress like everyone else? No, they taught her to carve a niche in the music industry, like NO ONE else. She’s doing her thing, marketing herself and carving out an image, just like all the people she is being compared to (Madonna, Christina, Gwen – love her – and Whinehouse. Go, Gaga, and keep recreating yourself for long term success.
