Lady Gaga Covers 'Elle' January 2010

Lady Gaga dons a sexy strapless top on the January 2010 cover of Elle magazine.

On a recurring theme in her work: “I feel that if I can show my demise artistically to the public, I can somehow cure my own legend. I can show you so you’re not looking for it. I’m dying for you on domestic television – here’s what it looks like, so no one has to wonder.”

On being a former waitress: “I was really good at it. I always got big tips. I always wore heels to work! I told everybody stories, and for customers on dates, I kept it romantic. It’s kind of like performing.”

On using her sexuality: “My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough.The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.”

  • Ilia

    So why the f u c k are you commenting on her photo then? You c u n t!

  • no means no

    fake & full of sh!t

  • not.

    I can’t believe she refers to herself as “sexy”. She’s foul!


    I am so tired of Caca’s ugly face, disgusting nightmarish images, and terrible songs. It’s impossible to escape her.

  • ceejayy

    wtf as if man ,how cud she say that wen shes done a picture with her boobs out ?

  • Dawson River

    Her face looks attractive

  • CKNJ

    She is amazing but her record company sucks for allowing her songs to be censored… I bought the 2-CD set at Borders and when I listen to ‘Bad Romance’ she is no longer a ‘freak bitch’, she is simple a ‘freak bi…’!

    What the hell is with that? Surely she would never allow that kind of tampering with her work???? Does she know they did that???

  • latelyivebeenhardtoreach

    she’s against nudity in her album cover. this coming from the girl who wrote “discostick”

  • Ivy

    Strangely, I like this cover!

  • cosi

    brilliant artist – and she’s heartbreakingly pretty in the full-face shots in the bad romance video

  • Br!on


  • Babey Vicky

    She is so pretty

  • lakers fan in boston

    i seriously cant stand this woman one bit
    her ego as grown way out of proportion
    she was kinda humble when she started but suddenly she thinks she’s fashionable and great
    and the thing is ppl actually encourage her 2 act like this…dumbasses

  • Virna

    Pop culture today, has hit rock bottom. I knew David Bowie and you. Lady Gaga, are no David Bowie.

  • Stone

    If only she didn’t sing!

  • ,

    anyone notice somethin wrong with her shoulder?

  • mia gem

    @AutumnM: i know she looks alot like Brittany Murphy especially without all the weird stuff and heavy makeup,i hope everyone notice that instead of just judging her from her weird taste of fashion

  • L Hewitt

    What did they do to her left (right) arm!!!? At the shoulder — someone messed up the post-production re-touching.
