Lady Gaga fans wondering about the current condition of her downstairs can get the answer they seek, courtesy of Europe’s Candy, “the first transversal style magazine” (not to be confused with the Filipino pop publication).
Just a few weeks removed from tipping the world a wry grin in a Saturday Night Live skit, in which her character says “I think people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something,” Lady Gaga is barely hiding anything at all with her outfit.
In the monochrome photo—linked in all its original Lady Gaga glory for the brave at the bottom of this Page Six piece—Lady Gaga sports a bowler somewhat reminiscent of Alex from A Clockwork Orange, a fake mustache and a scorpion painted over her bare left breast while halfway wearing a plush coat, with her downstairs in clear view.
In addition to Lady Gaga, Candy has given the world further gender-bending fun from the likes of actor/musician Jared Leto looking a lot like Katy Perry to shock rocker Marilyn Manson looking like… like he does every day. Bearing that in mind, Lady Gaga almost looks tame by comparison. Then there’s James Franco.
Of course, Lady Gaga is no stranger to showing off her stuff in the name of her art. Take the cover for the latest Lady Gaga album, ARTPOP. There she is, Lady Gaga naked with her hair and a giant blue ball the only thing between her and any prying eyes. That pose was also the basis for a sculpture by artist Jeff Koons, whom Lady Gaga name drops on her hit track, “Applause.”
We’ll see if all the extra attention pays off for Lady Gaga, who’s seen sales of her ARTPOP album decline since its No. 1 debut on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Her performance with The Muppets on Thanksgiving didn’t do much for Lady Gaga’s sales, nor did her SNL appearance. If showing off her nether regions doesn’t pay off, who’s to say what’s next?
What do you think of Lady Gaga’s latest nude antics? Do Lady Gaga’s eccentricities strike you as genuine quirks or some kind of marketing ploy? Do all of these theatrics affect your opinion of Lady Gaga’s music?
