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.

She’s a fresh, new, totally amazing talent! Who cares what she wears. The girl can perform!

You know what I think of when I see her…Bobby Trendy. Except she’s a woman. She has the oddest wardrobe of anyone I’ve ever seen except for maybe, Bobby. I wonder what she would look like in ordinary clothes?? We probably wouldn’t even know it’s her!

Her clothes are cool…if only her music was better.

Bizzare or Michael Jackson before he became white?


She looks like an OOMPA LOOMPA. What’s with the orange skin tone??

What a weird pic- the way her leg comes out of her dress, how her leg is curled, and don’t forget that bizarre tan she has!
