Lady Gaga Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' May 2011

Lady Gaga covers Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s May 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (April 26).

Here’s what the 25-year-old pop star had to share:

On plastic surgery: “I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.”

On being an artist: “I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me.”

    I hope that Lady Gaga has a cameo in Star Trek 12 as a singer and her character could have dark connections to the Orion Syndicate (the mafia of the Star Trek universe) who should be the villains of the sequel. With her futuristic music and style, she would fit right in.
    Midway through Star Trek 12, I’d like to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy go undercover to a concert of hers on a distant planet like with Diva Plavalaguna in The Fifth Element (1997). When she sings Bad Romance, Paparazzi, Poker Face or Just Dance, her show could be raided by Syndicate henchmen who have a thunderous phaser fight with Kirk, Spock and McCoy.

    I love Gaga, and I usually love her photoshoots, but I’m not too fond of the cover. The rest of the pictures are pretty good, but the one they chose is weird. And not weird in a Gaga sense; there seems to be something wrong with the wig and the style of the dress, IMO clashes with her own style.

    BTW the “body modification” quote seems to imply that the horns aren’t fake anymore?

  • yess

    Lady Gaga was so voluptuous in 2008/2009 for a while when she first became famous but has lost so much weight and is so skinny now. Why did she do it? She was perfect before. Please put 10 pounds back on. She looks wasted.

  • anon

    wow not good. lemme go back to looking at J. Lo.

  • Tampon Jen

    gaga is a dirty pig that exploits the gays.

  • PopHits

    Who is she trying to fool?
    Gaga has had surgeries!
    That huge nose of hers was even bigger before!
    I also don’t like that everything she does she calls it art…get over yourself please!
    And how about she talks about her cocaine addiction?
    She criticizes other pop starts about surgeries but many dont use drugs like she does!
    Gaga you are really becoming a clown!

  • yuk

    the only picture she looks good in is the one with the mask cause I cant see her gross face

  • L

    She looks terrible…

    Hi hogmonsTARD & Victoria the monsTARD. before you even get started on how Lady copy n paste is the creator of everything and everyone copies her let me refresh your memory once again.

  • http://t H

    David Bowie is another artist lady xerox gets her ideas from. coincidently he has songs called Fame & Lets Dance. She sampled Fame for her song Fancy Pants. And guess she felt like sampling his look 2

    All her songs videos & fashion was copied. I can on and on but I think we see a trend lady xerox is a never ending POP rerun. She doesn’t bring ART to POP she brings POP to POP. thats “Genius” …> >

  • Franck

    ego much GaGa ??!!!!

  • dawn


  • Diva

    Even when she tries to look nice, she still looks like trash. The mask pic is the best cos we dont get to see her face.

  • Audrey

    Never had a plastic surgery??? She did her nose!

  • Clown

    just like she has never lip synced. SO sick of this pretentious B. I can’t wait for her Kanye moment remember when he was on top.

  • ForeverBeyonce

    o shocking! NOT she is so blah and irrelevant

  • DOnelle

    @Tampon Jen:

    I couldnt agree more..its sad actually like really do we need a btw country version, then bollywood, whats next spanish? She is a joke and honestly when i see I am so sick of her and have been since 2009. She is annoying now and the fact that the gay$$$ eat it up sickens me. She said she wrote the song in 10 minutes for the gay$$$ then she said she wrote it with Whitney Houston in mind?! Like gag ga the song is supposed to be an “homage” to Madonna, the song sounds EXACTLY the same, why not thank her.. there is no room for plagiarism in this industry..done….NEXT

  • S

    She looks pretty nice!

  • lexi

    Woohoo Gaga! you’re so pretty! ALL your haters can gtfo and go to hell! GAGA FOREVER!!!!

  • HogmonstR


  • Yummy

    You´re all so mean and rude!!

    It´s so annoying ;)

  • HogmonstR



  • LG

    Well said bubbaness, she DID have a nose job. We are NOT stupid, u know…

  • Anastacia

    she looks AMAZING! f*** the haters, she the #1 popstar right now, haters DIE

  • Melanie


    Well not sure in which chart your checking but the top pop stars right now in this order is:
    #1 Adele
    #2Britney Spears
    #4Katy Perry

    I dont want to be mean, but your comment is uncalled for actually pretty mean

  • lexi

    OK, all the haters STFU!

    I think she would know if she’s had a nose job before! if you look back on the video where shes on that MTV show her nose looks the same and thats before she had her blond hair, so that before and after picture must be photoshopped!

  • lexi


    ok not sure what chart YOUR looking at…I love Adele but shes no pop star, and hillbilly spears does not belong in the list either, she USE to dance but doesn’t now and she never knew how to sing lol! Gaga at least trys to dance and she does sing, LIVE!

  • luisaonline

    i think someone is lying!

  • :)

    @lexi: yes lady xerox sings her co written copied melodies taken from other artist most of the time, thats better. poker face is Boney M song Ma baker, dance in the dark is depeche mode song strange love, speechless is beatles song something, Alejandro is ace of base song dont turn around , so happy i could die is natasha B song pocket full of sunshine, paparazzi is berlin song take my breath away (speed up), born this way is Madonna song express yourself (speed up)+ I was born this way was a disco gay pride song by carl bean if u ever wondered where she got the concept from, govermnet hooker is already getting accused of sounding just like Blue Monday by New Order. I can go on I haven’t gotten on the videos lol. plus she needs the house of crap to help her rip off fashions. her image was suppose 2 go 2 a girl named Lina Morgana who was working with Lady xerox and fusari on that same image but she tragically died and guess who adopted lady Gaga. the former boring yuppie singer stephani did.

    2 interesting links about the Lina MOrgana cover up

  • hibangs

    She’s only 25?! Na-ah 45 would be more believable.

  • Mia

    I found it very funny that her fans/monsters, tell us that she is better than all the other artists nowadays. However they don’t understand that she is made by the same music companies that the others are in! So it’s all the same. She wrote some music, yeah sure, but she didn’t made up her act. Look at her old pictures when she wasn’t this famous. She was actually pretty normal.

    And her saying she has never had plastic surgery and that only people without self esteem do it, is such a lie. She has had her nose done. Everybody knows that.
    But her fans will say, no that’s not true blablabla.. (just like Kim K. fans say she looks still the same as a couple of years ago) which is a lie ofcourse.

    Calling every single thing she does, art. Is very low. I don’t see it as art, but as trying too much.

    I loved her first songs, but now she has gone out of her mind with the fame part.
