Lady Gaga Covers 'Vogue' September 2012

Lady Gaga Covers 'Vogue' September 2012

Lady Gaga takes the coveted spot as the cover girl of Vogue‘s September 2012 issue, on newsstands August 14.

Here is what the 26-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On her new fragrance Fame: “The fragrance is called Fame. It must be black. It must be enticing. You must want to lick and touch and feel it, but the look of it must terrify you.”

On one of the highlights of the Born This Way Ball: “We were talking about putting the show together, and I said, OK, what if I was someone’s grandma and I was going to a concert tonight. How would I know that it was a Gaga show? And we all just sort of looked at each other and said,’The meat dress.’”

On her music: “I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius.” I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss the person you came with that evening, or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.”

Also pictured inside: Gaga trying on wedding dresses at the Vera Wang bridal shop with one of her friends who is about to get married!

    Really disappointed Vogue put her on the cover of the Sept issue. She is not original and a poser in my opinion.

  • Jane

    Wow, she looks FIERCE! THIS IS UNCONVENTIONAL BEAUTY! I love it!

  • Luke

    I don’t like her but I think what she said was interesting…

  • David

    I dont get this VOGUE obsession with this woman. She’s a clown for God’s sake! She has no background on the things she does…

    GAGA The GREAT !! Congrats to Gaga for getting the cover of the fashion Bible September’s Vogue issue. I know I will be buying this one with Gaga on the cover. It’s a double issue. Go Gaga. Ironic how Madonna had a song called vogue but Vogue Magazine wanted Gaga instead of Madonna. Sad Face. Yeah Right. I’m loving this.

  • leelee

    She looks like a corpse bride in that one photo.

  • purna

    I am proud of you Lady Gaga…

    You deserve all the success you have accomplished now…

  • Poserific

    LOL they had to photoshop this ugly, unoriginal, uncreative poser to the point she looks unhuman.

  • putz

    Queerbo. Nice copy job from GossipCenter

  • fashionista

    the photography is ok but Gaga has jumped the shark in my opinion and she’s not even 30 yet! that picture with the pink hat is done better with Gwen Stefani on the cover of September’s Bazaar 2012

    I will NOT be picking up this fall fashion mag at all. She makes me yawn at this point… Now she just looks mentally challenged… But I will be picking up Gwen on cover Bazaar september issue… Comparing Gwen’s cover to Gaga’s cover is like comparing beauty and the beast … (we all where both stands ) ;)

  • Libby g

    Nice but the face on the cover doesnt look like her at all!!! Toomuch photoshop

  • Nymeria

    She must be standing on a chqir or they stretched her with PShop.

  • sdf

    Another celebrity with a fragrance….

  • johanna

    She’s a Christina Aguilera wannabe even in this pic. She tries to much now a days so sad how Lady Gaga has turned out to be.

  • Ella

    I’m in love with the dress! Is it Zac Posen? why haven’t they mentioned the designer!!!

  • ave

    i will buy this issue anyway because i love vogue! lady gaga has her perfume coming out soon and she has a huge following (just check twitter) which is why they put her on the cover.

  • She’s so desperate to be a star. I do not want to touch or lick her and she certainly does’t terrify me.. which is what I’m guessing she was going for, seeing she’s self absorbed and it’s only natural she’d describe her perfume as she sees herself. I find her laughable, like a modern day court jester.

  • Stace

    OMG! Ithought it was Christina Aguilera. No Im glad it’s not her, what an ugly cover, tbh.

  • Luc

    She needs more photoshop.

    [] The best club for bikers and friends to get to know each other, establish relationship and talk about their interests, or to help each other. What’s important is you don’t have to be a biker, but you can meet one. if you are interested in it, it’s worthy a try!

  • Rocky

    LOVE GAGA! Vogue cover is AWESOME!! YOU ROCK GAGA!!!

  • Rocky


    I’m sure if she met YOU she wouldn’t want YOU 20 feet from her.

    While taking my three sons to summer day camp, my youngest fell and hurt his knee very bady. He was bleeding and crying hysterically. While I’m trying to find napkins, mothers always need something available for situations like this, a woman comes over and offers some tissues and telling my son he would be ok and that if he stopped crying she would get him a McDonald’s shake as we were only a few feet away from a McDonald’s. She was kind and loving to my son and to me as she could see I wasn’t handling things very well. A man comes running over with McDonald napkins, some wet and some dry. My little one stopped crying and the ‘Lady’ true to her word went into McDonalds and got him a shake. That ‘Lady’ was GAGA. She stayed for a few more minutes until my son relaxed and then left. She gave my three boys big hugs and to me as well, then left. There were no papps around which I was greatful for as i looked like hell. I’ll always remember her voice and how she went out of her way to help a mother who as flustered and a little four year old who needed comforting. I liked Gaga before my son’s fall, I LOVE her now.

    ‘We’ all know? Speak for yourself.

  • Love The Shoes

    I think Gaga tries to hard and I really don’t find her that interesting. That said, Madonna’s recent cattiness re: her and how Gaga has responded has impressed me. She hasn’t stooped, she’s walked on. Madonna’s having a hard time it seems with not being that interesting.

  • me

    what about Joan Smalls…or Rihanna…or any of the new hot Asian models…or even a Kardashian?!!!!!!

    Anna Wintour is making Vogue standard and not PUSHING fashion forward….so sad..first Sept issue I prob wont get in many years.

    not happening.

  • me


    word. I will be getting the Gwen cover too.

  • me


    he will not be pleased.

    she shoulda out RuPaul on the cover!!!!!!

    sooooooooooooooo yawn.

  • Michael

    @VICTORIA: Um Madonna has been on the cover several times.

  • Jeff

    Gwen defintely wins for the Sept cover! This cover sucks and i so sick of Gaga. Lame choice Vogue.

  • S

    She looks really pretty. Haters gunna hate.

  • Tamara

    Dress designer is Marc Jacobs! Not sure about the wig… Gaga, as always, looks amazing! I don’t think anyone else could pull this off


    GAGA The GREAT !! I am so happy for Gaga. It’s ironic that Madonna had a song called Vogue and the Vogue Magazine editors chose Gaga to be on the cover of the 2012 double fashion magazine issue. Someone wrote that Madonna was on other Vogue covers. I know she was on other covers but she wanted to be on this one and Gaga got it.

  • Drika

    To celebrate 120 years of telling people about the fashion world, Vogue surely didn’t pick the best person. There are so many other women who are heavily admired for their beautiful fashion sense, and they pick Lady Gaga??? She never even looks normal most of the time. Seriously. But on the bright side, her story won’t take up much of the issue. There will be so much fashion inspiration in this issue that I can look past it. I’ve never had a September issue before, and I just want the historical issue, not Gaga. In all honesty, I think they should have switched her with Emma Stone. Now she is a new face of fashion.

  • Christina Ray

    The mermaid gown on the cover is a Marc Jacobs design :)
