There have always been comparisons between Lady Gaga and Madonna, some more favorable than others, but now it’s getting pretty obvious that Gaga is not just honoring Madonna, but pretty much copying her. Â Gaga’s new single, “Born This Way,” was released last Friday, and immediately people were talking about how it’s so reminiscent of classic Madonna tracks that the resemblance can’t be denied.
“Express Yourself” and “Vogue” are the two songs that most often come up when people are asked what they think the new Gaga single sounds like, but some have said that it’s reminiscent of “Like a Prayer” or even TLC’s “Waterfalls.” Â Good thing imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
In a somewhat snarky moment of her own, Peaches Geldof (model and daughter of Sir Bob Geldof) made some comments on Twitter regarding Lady Gaga‘s recent Vogue Hommes Japan cover image. Â In the photo, Gaga is is wearing a meatkini – a bikini made entirely from meat. Â Geldof admitted that she thought the meatkini would be fun, though she feared that if she wore one on the beach, birds might peck at it.
After giving the matter some more thought, Geldof later considered the barbecuing possibilities: “if I wore a meatkini in the sun, it would cook on my skin. Meatkini + sun = steak, medium rare. Just pick off and enjoy.”
I think they probably already have websites for that sort of thing.
As you probably know, there is a new Sex And The City movie. The flick has been LONG awaited by millions of die-hard fans. It’s been on-again, off-again for what seems like a decade. Many of you, no doubt, have seen pics from the London opening- featuring Sarah Jessica Parker wearing a green hat from the Dr. Seuss: Seussical In the Poconos Collection. Sadly, this latest round of SATC fug did not stop at the premiere.
Vogue Magazine’s June 2008 issue features SJP on the cover, as lensed by Annie Leibovitz- fresh from her Miley Cyrus punk over at Vanity Fair. Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editrix royale, is deadly serious about her important fashion AND the bottom line. What an irresistible convergence a Sex And The City themed spread must have been! Sarah Jessica’s ALL about important fashion too! Anna knows the issue should sell well, so I think she took the chance to take SJP down a smidge- just to remind her who’s the ultimate queen of couture!
Sarah Jessica’s portraying a 40 year old bride in the shoot, and “Mr. Big”, Chris Noth, is in it as well. Mr. Big is trying to sit on SJP’s shoulders in the cover shot, and as Chris IS big, and SJP is tiny- the look of gasping pain on her face is understandable. She looks like she just got kidney-punched. “And…Snap! We’ve got it!” (Leibovitz, still grasping for controversy.)
Ooooh, I can just picture Anna Wintour now, perusing the proofs- looking for just the right one. “This is it. We’ll put the clean-water scare where it looks like that’s what SJP is gasping about. Clean water IS important to readers, I’m sure. Put the Sex And the City hook over the bony arm Chris ISN’T crushing, and make it big enough to hide those heinous extensions Ken Paves gave us. Those are too cruel even for me. And NO PHOTOSHOPPING! I want her to LOOK 50. That’s the story, right? She’s a 50 year old bride? Oh…40? That’s what I said. It’s perfect.”
