YUCK! Late this afternoon, the cover art for Lady Gaga’s hotly anticipated (by who?) upcoming album, ARTPOP, released online, and her reign of shock value continued to soar with the edgy artwork. It seems with Lady Gaga’s latest cover art that the hottest trend in pop fashion is……well, not wearing any clothes. Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, you name it! Am I the only one whose reaction to “Wrecking Ball” was to throw a shirt and some nice pants on that young lady. That wrecking ball must be freezing!
Lady Gaga’s wrecking ball, in this case, is the giant, blue egg that rests between her legs. Is it the world? Is it just an egg? Why should we even care? I’m still trying to forget the memory that was her cover art for “Applause.” Smeared make up is in no way fashionable.
It took me nearly 20 minutes to figure out that the Lady Gaga on the cover of ARTPOP wasn’t even really the real Lady Gaga! It was just a sculpture! Regardless, that’s no excuse not to properly cover it with a jacket or even a coat. Do you think mannequins stand in stores naked as the day they were born? No way! They are dressed classy and posed in a position to receive oohs from onlookers not egads like this sculpture of Lady Gaga along with her many strange outfits.. So Miss Gaga, please, for once, wear an outfit that doesn’t look like my breakfast and, if not, at least put a coat on! Hypothermia is real and extremely scary.
