Lady GaGa Glows In ‘ELLE’ / Talks ‘ARTPOP’, Critics, & More

Published: Thursday 12th Sep 2013 by Sam

‘ARTPOP’ season is upon us!

Lady GaGa continues her promo push for her fourth studio album on the coveted cover of ELLE magazine.

The ‘Applause’ singer strikes many a stunning pose in the October edition of the fashion monthly, (somewhat) doing away with the theatrics and instead opting for a more demure look.

More snaps await below, as well as her words on the album (due November 11th), her naysayers, and more…

On ARTPOP: “I went to look back to myself being 19, with all my Warhol books and all my Yoko Ono and John Lennon CDs, my Rolling Stones CDs and my Bowie…, and I said, what would she want me to do right now? Well she’d want you to call Jeff Koons and Robert Wilson and Marina Abramović and Inez and Vinoodh…And that’s what I did!”

On criticism: “Everyone is so cynical—that I can’t purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking me if I really, truly struggled. Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?”

On handling pressure: “What are you talking about, pressure? I’m great under pressure. I’m a warrior. I’m Rocky, round 12.”

Plus, enjoy the cover shoot by Brandon Maxwell after the jump…

The October 2013 issue of ELLE hits newsstands on September 24th.

      Yes she does she’s giving me Fame Monster/BadRomance Level on the cover & she needs to keep that if she wants to Have the biggest Album of the year or at lest second biggest like with Born This Bring on ARTPOP ALBUM COVER!!!!

  2. Rosie September 12, 2013

    She legitimately looks like a man on that cover.

    • Cici Slaaaays September 12, 2013

      the way your favs lips are set up tho.

      • Rosie September 12, 2013

        The way Cedric’s career is set to fail tho.

      • FAF September 12, 2013

        ^ still doing more than lana has EVER


        U pressed, d*** 😆

        more lashings for u later, IRRELEVANT like ur depressed no where to be seen during fashion week 😆

        all she can do is H&M

      • Rosie September 12, 2013

        Yas @ Lana snatching a GLOBAL brand operating in more than 100 countries in her first era.
        Plus Mulberry (iconic British designer label), plus Jaguar (one of the world’s most prestigious car brands).
        Stay mad that Cedric’s main endorsement is a $1 Walmart deodorant brand.

    I could have sworn that Gaga wasn’t struggling before she became rich and famous..

    I seemed to recall her going to the same school as paris hilton or nicki hilton…and we all know the hiltons are billionaires..

    yea that threw me off….the struggling part

  4. Rita is queen September 12, 2013

    First pic – Giving me Rita teas….

    Second pic – She looks awkward.

    Third pic – She looks much better from a far!

  5. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 12, 2013

    She looks like a very ugly over the top gay boy, only she hasn’t got a 5th grade education level like her very manly looking fat counterpart.

    The rest of the photos scream struggle and look photo-shopped to death.

    The last one screams “will suck d*** for cash”, desperate w****.

  6. christinastherealtalent September 12, 2013

    Gaga has always perpetuated her own drama. Apparently she gained weight and was criticized from AM to PM about but I never saw her weight gain in headlines until she announced she’d gained weight. She lets her fans bully everything and everything and doesnt do anything to stop it but yet she gets defensive when people retaliate against them. How about when she tried to manipulate her fanbase buy trying to get them to buy her single? From day 1 she has been the queen of drama and controversy and ot by her own doing. Hen your friends with Perez, s*** will happen. She has based her career off manipulations and controversy.

  7. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 12, 2013

    She is essentially the epitome of ugly and hedious to look at. She also looks very crack addict nowadays.

    • dustin September 12, 2013

      work on your spelling, grammar and syntax, THEN post.

  8. ratedxxx(next broad) September 12, 2013

    other than that, I feel her pain….one of the reasons I like Gaga is because she tells her deranged stans to shut the f*** up, stop bullying other people…

    unlike many other artist who encouraged their stan base to attack people who’s not licking their fake lying asses…

    alot of people are just jealous of her fame, regardless of all the gimmicks the bish can sing and outperform alot of so call the greatest entertainer in the world…

    when you go to her concerts, its not the same b******* moves over and over again, she actually changes her moves around

    • RICHIE_RICH September 12, 2013

      You always seems to make it about KING BEYONCE. You people love y’all some BEYONCE.

    • ABC September 12, 2013

      Who ENCOURAGES their fans to cyber bully? Not even Rihanna does, although she promotes it.

    • Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) September 12, 2013

      Got damn, you stay trying to shade Queen Bey. You need to learn how to shade better because your shade came is so weak. If I can spot your shade right away then your WACK!

  9. TruthAboutPink September 12, 2013

    Lady Gaga throws rocks and then hides her hands. Judging by the way she and that evil pig Perez intentionally tried to turn people against Screechguilera I believe she was lying about being bullied in school. I thinks she WANTS to be a good person but is too calculated to just be good without there being something more to it.

  10. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 12, 2013

    She also looks very ghostly and dead inside, very troubled, demon like and child like. Her face scream predator, like she was a real life costume double in the predator movies.

    She also screams “will be going back to rehab”.

    • miao September 13, 2013

      Get a life, you lonely pathetic creature!

  11. Cici Slaaaays September 12, 2013

    Gaga looks great im sick of the b****** that stan for non factors like lana del ray trying to give their input like we wanna hear it b**** lana is bearly doing the things are favs been doing for years your cocky for nothing b**** go suck an old white mans saggy wrinkly balls sack like the flithy white trash c** guzzler you are 🙂

    • Rosie September 12, 2013

      A Cedric stan shouldn’t be talking s*** when it’s fave is known for f****** every “hot” rapper in the game for hits and still couldn’t go top 20/2x paper plate. It’s fave probably has Super A*** by now.

      • FAF September 12, 2013

        @Cici slays DEATH ! x30420

        I agree, I don’t like Applause besides the chorus, but truth be told, Lana del gay fans been feeling themselves since the b**** got her first top ten in the US ever LOOOL

        in order to be a “FLOP” you have to have some form of success at some point, otherwise its the “norm” for lessors to flop

        I mean lana’s just a non factor, tbh 😆

        no one mentions IT outside of tumblr and TGJ … LOL

        GAGA’s FLOP >> Lanas discography

      • Rosie September 12, 2013

        What about your fave though? It is truly the definition of a non-factor, even the urban community stopped using her after her first week sales came in.
        Call me when any Cedric album sells 5 million.

    • Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 12, 2013

      I cant help but notice how your Gravatar creature changes every post. Cant keep up with your multiple emails?

  12. MANANANA September 12, 2013

    She has told her fans multiple times to stop bullying people who talk about her and it is up to her fans on wether to listen to her or not but she DOES nonetheless tell them to stop and to advocate love like she does! So do not lie on her like that without all the facts and JUST BECAUSE you don’t like her….

  13. MANANAN September 12, 2013

    So is your mom…she should’ve aborted your ass

  14. TAMAR IS GAY September 12, 2013

    LOVES IT!!!

    Looks like some futeristic retro amazing s***.

    Slaydy Gaga. I can’t wait to see the spread


      More like a futuristic retro t*****, b**** if you think tamar is gay look at your fave, that b**** has a d***.

  15. Molly September 12, 2013

    Lmao drag ha @cicislays!

  16. Rosie September 12, 2013

    Funny how the Z-Squad seems to have some kind of Google Alert set up whenever I post so they can continuously try (and fail) to drag my fave when no one whatsoever mentioned her. At the same time they are GHOST in nearly every post for their fave.
    Talk about obsessed.

    • Molly September 12, 2013

      Go play in traffic please.

    • Ke$has crazy kid September 12, 2013

      You haven’t committed suicide yet?

      • Rosie September 12, 2013

        Did Ke$hit get rid of her h***** yet?

  17. SCHEISSETHRONED(GrapeJuiceKING) September 12, 2013

    As King of TGJ I am going to ignore the scum and peasants that are scattered about beyond the limits of the Castle. You know who you are.

    I am DONE giving certain F*** that lie about their lives attention and relevancy!

    The COVER screams professional model! No one can cover a magazine like Gaga except the Queen- Beyonce.

    *Walks back into Castle*

  18. RICHIE_RICH September 12, 2013

    She looks good. What’s all the hate for?

  19. TAMAR IS GAY September 12, 2013


  20. HOWYOULIKEIT September 12, 2013

    She will definitely flop. There’s nothing special about her anymore

    • miao September 13, 2013

      Your comment is so 2011. Pass.

  21. koshi September 12, 2013

    her gimmickis are tired and her first single was generic as f**. people need to move on and stop over hyping this clown

  22. Kris jenner stan September 12, 2013

    GaGa > Ciara> Lana

    Lana just got a top 10 single her stans should calm down cause this will be her first & last top 10 so be humble @Rosie

    • Rosie September 12, 2013

      But where is Cedric’s top 10? Still stuck in the Bush Administration when crunk was still popular?
      Lana doesn’t need hits, she’s an album artist. BTD outsold Cedric’s career.

      • FAF September 12, 2013

        But the way Goodies sold 5mil copies, though as of 2010 and its been 3 yrs

        I’m sure its outsold whatever FLOPPA will continue to sell


      • Rosie September 12, 2013

        Bye with those fake ass receipts.
        There is no way whatsoever that Goodies sold 2 million since 2006. Goodies sold 2.9-3 million worldwide at BEST.
        Anyways has Local Party gone gold yet? Summertime Sadness is already platnium.

  23. grownwoman September 12, 2013

    You all will feel better once you kill yourselves. Living with hate is not worth it.

  24. Ke$has crazy kid September 12, 2013

    She looks fierce.

  25. Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 12, 2013

    The desperation continues. TV appearances, an over the top music video, VMA and GMA performances, posting nudes, dusting off a five year old beef with Christina Aguilera, and the cover of Elle yet the interest in Applause continues to decline. Not even fans offering blowjobs for Applause purchases has helped. The struggle is indeed real.

    • shut up b**** September 12, 2013

      has katy hudson sold 1 000 copies yet? that’s pure struggle, 100 copies. and it was released in 2001 when album sales were huge and when other Christian albums were actually selling well.

      • Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 12, 2013

        Receipts on this 1,000 copies? Her first album got zero promo or funding or help in any shape way or form. And the label went bankrupt. What’s Gaga’s excuse?

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 12, 2013

      Since when was promoting desperation? Every artist needs to do it….and relax, sis. We all know Katy is a singles artist so it was inevitable roar would do well. And ur retarded cuz Gaga has only mentioned Xtina once and she was asked about it.

  26. Queen Brit Brit September 12, 2013

    LOLOLOLOLOL!! She looks like a little boy, I can’t! LOLOLOLOL!!! Applause is still flopping too 🙁 Her career lasted from 2008 to 2012

    • miao September 13, 2013

      Lady Gaga is not #1 on Billboard, so she is a flop?! Oooook… In other news, talented Britney Spears did perfectly choreography while singing live and it’s not 2001. Oops! NOT!

  27. Stephy Tha Lambily September 12, 2013

    Lady Gaga is an amazing entertainer.

  28. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) September 12, 2013

    She Does look good.

    I Will Try to be less harder on her, seeing some sad b****** above made me re-think about.

  29. Stop the drama Start the music September 12, 2013

    These pics are actually better than her previous ones. The white haired ones looked elegant.

  30. irene46 September 13, 2013

    i love gaga’s song ‘applause’. i can’t believe the media chose to allowed that weak pathetic ‘whatever’ mylie called herself doing to steal the press attention from gaga’s vma performance.

  31. JOHNVIDAL September 13, 2013

    Great cover!

  32. Suicide Blonde September 13, 2013

    “I went to look back to myself being 19, with all my Warhol books and all my Yoko Ono and John Lennon CDs, my Rolling Stones CDs and my Bowie”.

    Didn’t she forgot someone else?
