Hot Shot: Lady GaGa Strips Off For ‘Fame’

{Removed As Requested}

Get into the promo snap for ‘Fame‘, the first fragrance by Lady GaGa.

Shot by ‘Alejandro‘ creative Steven Klein, the provocative snap leads the product’s launch- set to enjoy an international release in the latter part of August.

GaGa will release ‘Fame’ via Haus Laboratories and Coty, who have reportedly designed the fragrance to become invisible once it hits oxygen- and according to GaGa evokes the sense of ‘blood’ and fluid some readers may deem unmentionable.

So, what do you think?

Do you like the shot?

    “LADY GAGA
    Behind the ludicrous and attention-seeking Halloween costumes, the obnoxiously overblown music videos, the swagger jacking of Madonna’s personality, and the conspicuous plot to manipulate the socially awkward and misfits of society into thinking that they have a voice (and are empowered) through her, is a bunch of banal and contrived gibberish heavily propped by media hype that does not live up to it. What began as a bouncy, pixyish, one-woman-show-esque version of what the Spice Girls did in the late 90s has now become an egotistical, overproduced–yet still oddly generic–mess of grating sounds that is irritating to listen to and takes itself too seriously.

    Once upon a time this character that is ‘Lady Gaga’ may have provided a cheeky and quirky contrast to what had been the model of what was popular, and it may have been quasi-endearing, but when pop stars infuse that much camp into their image, at a certain point the irony *will* get old and lose its charm. In the meantime, this woman has literally crammed about a decades worth of gimmicks, put-on’s and media saturation into a three year span. We have seen her show up kite high, in meat dresses, with horns attached to her head, dressed as a man, with discharged gay soldiers as her escorts, etc., etc. The ‘shtick’ is old. There are only so many heavy-handed stunts you can use to dumbfound the public into noticing before they become either hostile or jaded, and a backlash ensues.

    Lady Gaga has always been a ‘character’ for show, but she has become a caricature and a parody of herself. No longer is it “refreshing,” abstract or inventive; it is now tired and dated. Overexposure is killing the cat and quite frankly Gaga is losing her relevance. By making herself into such a sneaky little cartoon who is force-fed to the public in obscene dosages, she has backed herself into a corner. The only thing left for her to do at this point is to throw on a pair of jeans and act normal, but how boring would that be for someone who named herself ‘Lady Gaga’ and made being strange her ticket to fame? She was here; she dominated the world of music and got her press, but the milk is now sour. The writing was on the wall when dowdily dressed and anything-but-flashy Adele c*** blocked what was supposed to be a Gaga-dominating 2011. Kids do not listen to her, it is not “cool” to be a walking freak show…and quite frankly it is not cool to like Lady Gaga now.”

    Little by little she’ll start to show her true colors. Especially since that last album didn’t pull in the numbers her and her team were likely expecting.

    What is this nonsense?

    Wasn’t this the artist who said she was doing it purely for art? Who said artists shouldn’t dabble in other fields?

    So why is her ass now trying to sell a perfume like every other commercial singer she wanted to act like she was above?

    Smh, I’m guessing soon she’ll be right there on the Macy’s shelves with a half a dozen bottles next to Beyonce and Katy Perry. Fake.

She’s been in the top 2 spots on the world chart for 3 years in a row with 2 different albums and a EP with the FameMonster being 1# in 2010,Adele did all her selling from 21 even her album 19 sold because 21 was so big because 19 did not do all that when it first came out boo boos, So let’s see what Adele,Rihanna , & Katy’s next albums do will they be in the Top 2 on the world chart & let’s note that Rihanna & Katy never been number 1 on the world chart and lets not talk tours or money because Gagas tours s*** all over them & as far as money shes Ritch b****!

    Saying she has ripped Madonna with the mask is a real stretch, talk about pressed! You find the only element in the picture that is even vaguely similar to something Madonna did once in a completely different situation with something that looked more like a blindfold with holes than a mask. This is a perfume image not a music video and Madonna did not invent bondage gear – that Erotic video was one of the saddest attention seeking stunts I have ever seen (I remember it well, unfortunately) as well as perpetuating misconceptions about BDSM. This photo is elegant and tasteful with the little men to give it the Gaga effect, looking forward to trying the perfume but I have no intention of buying it if I don’t like the smell ;o)

    Wow, they really Photoshopped and airbrushed her here. Her boobs are not that round in perky in real life, her abs aren’t that defined, and they airbrushed out all of her tattoos.

    I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again: Gaga is a corporate-manufactured product. Her father, Joe Germanotta, was CEO of Global Touch Inc, a corporation that deals with financial and marketing solutions in the Telecommunications (Media) field, and he is also President and CEO of GuestWifi, a Telecom giant that provides hotel chains with free wifi. He (NOT Gaga) is also the owner of House of Gaga Inc.,, Gaga’s music publishing label, which means that he owns part of all of her songs and he also receives royalties from her songs. The “GloJoe” name you see in the liner notes at the end of her songs is him. Her mother, Cynthia, was a Vice President for Verizon, another Telecom and media bigwig. Cynthia is also friends with Madonna’s ex manager. Her parents actually wanted her to attend Tisch School of the Arts for acting as well as musical theatre, and in 2005/2006, she had guest roles on ‘The Sopranos’, that oh-so avant-garde show ‘The Hills’ and also the MTV game show ‘Boiling Point’. In 2007, Vincent Herbert told Gaga to dye her hair blonde because people were confusing her with Amy Winehouse in terms of looks. Also in 2007, her original producer and co-writer Rob Fusari chastised Gaga for showing up to recording sessions in sweats and leggings, so Gaga completely changed her wardrobe. Around this time, she hooked up with Lady Starlight being Starlight’s synth player and performance partner and so Gaga completely transitioned from jazz/ soft rock ballad singer to over-the-top glitzy electro pop s** kitten with a supposed “metal” edge.

    For someone who said musicians shouldn’t dabble in other fields, she has her own branded and licensed Halloween costumes that are sold at Party City and Target and other major retail chains, she has products with Polaroid, Virgin Mobile and Beats headphones, and now this perfume. Oh, and her music is sold at Target too, despite her supposed protests. If this chick was anymore “grassroots rebellious”, she’d have a position at JP Morgan.

    Gaga continues to troll Christina to this day, since late 2008. Gaga hated to be compared to Amy Winehouse look-wise, when she was a brunette. But now… she is looking like Christina Aguilera too often, stealing Christina’s trademark looks on purpose.

    I think she’s obsessed with Christina and not only looks up to her, but also wants to be her.. She wants to be a super talented pop star and singer, extremely diverse and unpredictable, one that spreads positive messages of self-love and whatnot.

    Lady Caca will continue to play innocent, but I am not fooled. She’s a foking wannabe and nothing else. There is nothing original or amazing about this useless clown.

    I concur. She has been kicking at the same dead “sardonically poking at the Faustian concept of selling your soul for power and fame” horse for FOUR years now. She says she knows how to beat fame at its own game, but whether or not she wants to admit it, she has succumbed to her own hype. She had the audacity to say she wrote the “album of the decade” in 2011, only to have Adele dominate her at both the 2012 Grammys and official music charts. When someone recently asked her on Twitter if she still considered ‘Born This Way’ to be the album of the decade, she snarkily equivocated: “Which decade?” Gaga herself IS the Fame Monster.

    When Gaga first started out, her voice didn’t nearly have the power and pitch it does today. The reason why Gaga’s voice is better these past couple years is because Gaga sought out and hired Christina Aguilera’s vocal coach. Plus, Gaga’s mother Cynthia is long-time friends with Madonna’s former manager, so Gaga IS very much connected to both blonde divas.
