Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' = with endo-skeletal shoulderpads

By Liz Kelly

Lady Gaga just can not stay away from the Twitter this week. Yesterday, she tweeted news that the release date for her new single, "Born This Way," had been bumped up to this Friday, Feb. 11. Today (Tuesday) she twitpic'd the cover art for that single:


And, at least based on the photo -- taken by British fashion photog Nick Knight -- Gaga was apparently born with built in '80s-era-sized shoulder pads. Which could explain all those outre outfits -- trying to draw attention away from her pointy little shoulder blades.

I don't know about her reputed shoulders--but it's apparent she has to keep acting and looking like a freak to distract from her talentless paerformances.

Lady Gaga is amazing and the cover art photo with the facial and shoulder implants is totally sick hot ! I love it !!!

I can't wait to download the new single and am thoroughly looking forward to seeing what she wears at the Grammy Awards this Sunday.

I've been trying to decide if I've become an old fogey and don't get Lady Gaga and her advante garde "art" or if she is just a pop culture phenomenon with more style than substance. I heard one of her songs on the car radio recently and thought, this sounds like an Ace of Base song from nearly twenty years ago. Her dance moves, like many pop stars resemble moves from Michael Jackson and Madonna from thirty years ago. As far as fashion and style, it seems to be provocative and edgy but for the sole purpose of garnering attention for herself, not really making some artistic statement or revealing some human truth. But perhaps that in and of itself is the point -- that in the pop culture media world of today individuals have to do anything to be heard above the din of competing voices. I have read some accounts that she gets it, that basically she is trying to goof on the celebrity culture of today. If that's case, I wish her luck, Americans are bad at getting satire. Like with All in the Family, some people got it, some people felt uncomfortable, and some identified with the buffoon that was being made fun of. If she takes herself seriously as an artist, I predict that she could have staying power, but with the resonance of a Steven King -- someone who is popular, but doesn't produce great works of art. Which is okay, we all need a little light diversion now and then, and not all art has to be weighty tomes about which people write dissertations.

Why did I read MyPostEgo's comment as "Which is okay, we all need a little light perversion now and then..."?
