    This is just so weird, to the point of disgusting. It’s a woman with a beard, it’s not how a person, woman or man is supposed to look. It would be perfectly fine if he wanted to be 100% woman, and I think he would make a beautiful woman, but this whole thing is just not ok. And of course! Lady Gaga! Any time something weird or unnatural shows up there she is, magically!!

  • Yves

    It’s like I’m having a nightmare when I look at these pictures.

    @Too much:

    it’s his prerogative to wear what he wants just like it’s your prerogative to spend all day reading about celebrity lives and commenting on them rather than go living yours. :-D

  • sali

    thats disgusting & really really awful! that creature shouldn’t be encouraged or even photographed and praised!! this is too much. its okay to be gay or (lesbian). but THIS is unnatural! its face making me sick i swear.. nuff said :|

  • Ana

    @jdl: I Love You

  • Beli

    Terrible. What’s this? A woman, a man? She’s a freaky show.
    Don’t like him/her. She’s not an artist, she is nothing and be famous just because has a beard. Shit!

  • alexandra

    @Too much: this is just so weird, to the point of disgusting. It’s a hate comment signed with a nickname (too much), it’s not how people should give their opinions. It would be perfectly fine if you wanted to be 100% straight forward and al least put your name on it, but this whole thing is just not ok. But of course! when people like you see something different and that disagree with, they magically show up out of nowhere to make a comment about it!

  • morgan

    to all the people who think she’s famous just because she has a beard … well screw you! she won the eurovision song contest this year

  • Jennay

    QUEEN !!!

  • Beli

    @morgan: just because she has a beard. The song s.ucks!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJEn29QUwZ0 Living in a box

    So the circus in town, right. Tell me something, is this inspiring? What she did will inspire women to grow beard?

  • Bobby

    this is a nightmare………..

  • Perry

    @Too much:
    SHE’S NOT A WOMAN WITH A BEARD YOU IGNORANT, HE’S JUST A MAN WITH A WIG

  • Fernando Schiavi

    This person creeps me out

  • SPIRIT7

    Of course he’s strange to look at but cool also. He is like human art. How does he get that beard so smooth looking? I like it. Im a mom over 50 and I think he looks wonderful.

    @Too much: It’s because GaGa is trying to remain relevant. GaGa’s “weirdness/eccentricity” has never been real, true, geniune, or authentic. Her “weirdness” is all for show and media/public attention. She’s never been original. GaGa is just a reincarnation of Grace Jones, Madonna, Freddie Mercury, and a little bit of Ru Paul. Don’t get me wrong. GaGa is talented. She can sing, play the piano, and is a pretty good songwriter. She just needs to find her own thing and not steal from others. It’s alright if she is inspired by those individuals I listed above, but don’t steal and copy their style/persona. Develop your own identity.

    What a complete disgrace to mankind.

  • Randy

    Each to their own I guess … but this makes me sad to be living in 2014 (and no I am not going to end my life either) it’s just genuinely sad

  • Bobsyouruncle

    @jdl: aren’t you also wasting your time doing the same though

  • Meh

    @Perry:

    And a full face of makeup, a gown, nails done etc. So while he is indeed a man, he is portraying himself as a woman….a woman with a beard. I think it’s ignorant of us as humans to entertain this.

  • Pretty Ka

    @SPIRIT7: I completely agree with you. He’s sort of mesmerizing.

  • Pretty Ka

    @Randy: “Each to their own” I’m always down with that. What’s sad is that it’s the year 2014 and people are unwilling to recognize and respect identity diversity.

  • Renata

    I loveee Conchita Wurst. Queen, Goddness, beautiful manwoman! And I don’t care about her beard. I like a voice.

  • nana of 5

    Handsome as Tom and a stunning Conchita. He/she is a funny, cheeky, articulate person. Love him both ways.

  • Viola

    Go Conchita!

  • comet

    Just listen to her songs!!!! Amazing!!

  • Elle

    This should be Miley’s next boyfriend.

  • Rocky

    @Fernando Schiavi:

    Same here!

  • Love The Shoes

    No doubt that he is beautiful, even striking, and, he is still a he as he is not transgender but drag. All that said, it’s so gimmicky and rather ridiculous in appearance imo. He’s trying to blur some line and that’s crystal clear. I’m not impressed or shocked. I find him not much different an act than one you’d find in a circus sideshow of old and that’s unfortunate when the LBTG community is finally getting mainstream footing.

  • Gina

    I support the LGBT community but Conchita just looks ridiculous to me. I can’t help the way I feel but I accept him anyways.

  • Michele

    please do not give this “thing” any more publicity!!!
    Disgusting and immoral. I don’t care what kind of
    surgery, etc. anyone has done, a man will always
    be a man, and a woman will always be a woman.
    You are what God made you!

  • Taz

    @Michele:

    This “thing” is is also another human being. I believe God also wants humans to hold compassion for others. So have some compassion and refrain from writing negative, hurtful and insulting comments about another person.

  • Bof

    This “thing” can’t sing !! The auful man or woman, whatever, is disgusting!

  • santamariavargas

    wtf?
