Gaga posted a snap of the cover on Twitter with the caption, “First of 4 V covers revealed!” so there are three more to come. Don’t worry – even if you don’t see any of her bum on the covers, you definitely will in the photoshoot inside. She is starkers. Yep, completely and utterly naked. Something to look forward to when the issue hits newsstands at the end of August.
Don’t worry if you can’t wait until then to get your Gaga fix though – she is everywhere at the moment promoting her new single Applause which was rush-released on Monday after it was leaked on the internet. She announced there was ‘A POP MUSIC EMERGENCY’ on Twitter before explaining, ‘DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS…MY NEW SINGLE ‘APPLAUSE’ IS OUT TODAY AND CAN BE HEARD ON UNITED STATES RADIO IN 15 MINUTES.’
She was then snapped wandering around town with a painted face to mimic the single’s cover art. Applause has since rocketed up the singles chart and the Gaga promotional bandwagon rolls on (we imagine the bandwagon looks like a gothic float from Notting Hill Carnival).
In case there was ever any doubt about the weird and wonderful world that is Gaga Land she revealed to Ryan Seacrest on his US radio show KIIS FM on Monday that she wears Michael Jackson’s clothes when recording music. She said, “I recently bought a bunch of Michael Jackson clothes – bought a lot of clothes.
“The idea was to keep them for him. I actually don’t want to wear them – they’re Michael’s clothes. I have one of his sweaters that I put on. I wear that when we’re mixing and finishing up records. His real clothing.
But wearing it and having it be mine? No.”
Don’t worry, we’re confused too.Gaga also spoke about the rumoured ‘feud’ between herself and Katy Perry after their single release dates clashed on Monday when Gaga bought hers forward. Gaga basically completely trumped Katy’s planned release of Roar by announcing her ‘POP MUSIC EMERGENCY’.Gaga explained, “We both just happened to want to put our singles out within a week of each other. It’s not necessarily convenient for everyone [she means for Katy] and maybe a little bit awkward, but we don’t need to force feed this negativity until everyone explodes – it turns into a competition and it’s not what I’m about at all.
“I really like KP and I really like her fans and I really respect everyone in this industry because it wasn’t easy for me to get here and I’m sure it wasn’t easy for her to get where she is so I just wanted to put an end to it before it started.”
So there you have it: there is no feud…but it is a tad awkward.
