Lady Gaga: “Don’t kill the superstar, take care of her soul.”


These are all photos from just one day – yesterday. Lady Gaga had three extreme costume changes in one day in Los Angeles. This blue outfit is vintage Thierry Mugler, with Louboutin pumps. The whole effect is very “Smurf” and it makes me wonder if Lady Gaga wishes that she had been asked to voice Smurfette, rather than Katy Perry. As for the nipple studs/pasties… I don’t know if they’re part of the original design for the suit, or if Gaga just decided that her nipples needed accentuating…on the suit jacket.

By the way,, “an internet retailer of barbeque meats and sauces,” is trying to get into the Lady Gaga action by offering her $500,000 to wear a specific dress to the VMAs. According to E! News, “The Ohio-based company claims they have teamed up with a well-known fashion designer who has shown in New York, London and Paris to cook up the one-of-a-kind creation. Plans would also include using gourmet barbeque sauces accessories and makeup.” The design is being referred to as “The Bag of Bones Dress” because it will be made from actual animal bones. For real.

As for her myriad radio interviews yesterday, Gaga talked about Amy Winehouse, of course. This is a direct quote: “It’s a lesson to the world. Don’t kill the superstar, take care of her soul. I was nobody when [Amy] was first coming out. I would be on the street and people would go, ‘Amy’. I just remember feeling like I wasn’t alone, because she was so different.” Jesus, did people really mistake Gaga for Amy Winehouse? FOR REAL? No? I’m surprised that Gaga didn’t claim that Amy’s ghost-soul didn’t come into her (Gaga’s) body to write more music, like Gaga claimed with Alexander McQueen.

Here are the other outfits from yesterday’s costume changes. I kind of like her in the cream one.

    And still not a word about her fans’ monstrous tweets about Adele. Very telling, indeed.

  2. KJ says:

    On the one hand, she has a point. We as a culture really do revel in tearing down those who were once at the top. We love to watch people fall from grace. It’s disturbing and we have a very unhealthy relationship with celebrity, fame and infamy.

    On the other hand, STFU Gaga. Stop trying to making Amy’s death about you. As usual, she presents a tiny nugget of common wisdom wrapped in layers of bullshit and pretentiousness.

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Uhhhhh Thats not Gaga’s problem Bellaluna and I think Gaga looks amazing in all three looks and I am coveting those blue Louboutins, I would rock those at a News Year Eve party.

    @KJ How the hell did she make that about her? She was talking about Amy Winehouse and she told a cute story about Amy. Jeez some people just can’t stand people who are different and march to their own beat. Jeez Lady Gaga tries to let her freak flag fly and people keep trying to burn it down.

  4. The Truth Fairy says:

    TYPICAL GAGA …. Somehow she makes the death of Amy Winehouse all about her instead of about Amy. Nice!

  5. mia girl says:

    Pure narcissism

  6. michael bays comb over says:

    the truth fairy-you beat me to it. why does everything need to revolve around her? ugh.

  7. Roma says:

    Okay all you people who (mistakenly) jumped on Kelly Osborne for her tweet about Amy, THIS is the type of shit you should get upset about.

  8. KO says:

    how the hell did she turn Winehouse’s death into all about her?

  9. Larissa says:

    As if she is not doing any drugs herself, sure we believe that!
    “Take care of her soul” what a nice piece of advice, so deep and touching right? hahahaha I mean, u have nth better to say, STFU Gaga!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. original kate says:

    “Jeez some people just can’t stand people who are different and march to their own beat.”

    @ loveangelina: gaga doesn’t march to her own beat, she marches to madonna’s. and marilyn manson’s. and bette midler’s. etc. etc.

  11. girlwithapearl says:

    OF COURSE Lady Gaga must have some connection or other to ANY MUSICAL LEGEND WHATSOEVER.
    Ugh, I just KNEW she’d give her two cents about Amy and make it all about her.

  12. LadyJane says:

    It must be exhausting to even be near her.

  13. WhiteNoise says:

    I doubt very much that Gaga’s claim that she was mistaken for Amy is true. I don’t have a problem with any celeb expressing their thoughts on and being emotional about Amy’s death (she touched me deeply, so no stretch to understand why others, celebs included, shouldn’t feel the same rawness and need to express themselves), but this one smacks of Gaga trying to shine in the light of a genuine original.

    Gaga seems so contrived alongside Amy.

  14. Madonna called: She wants her nipple shields back.

  15. honeychurch says:

    Gaga did look a bit like a young, fresh Amy Winehouse (Frank-era) when she first started out. I remember a tongue-in-cheek reference to this in the Bad Romance video.

  16. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:

    @HorsePoor Hanna: Exactly what I was thinking about Gaga’s blue suit.

  17. KJ says:

    Her turning what should have been a sympathetic quote about Amy segued into a story about how people would mistake HER for Amy. Because she’s just as unique and different.

    But no, continue thinking that anyone who dare criticize the Lord Our Savior Gaga is just jealous and doesn’t like people who march to the beat of their own drum, whatever that tired saying means to you. I couldn’t possibly have a legitimate beef with how far Gaga’s head is up her own ass or think that she’s diluting her legit musical talents by dressing and acting like a jackass for attention (not to make “statements”). It’s just cause I HATE DIFFRENT PEOPLE, myself being a visual artist, minority, tattooed woman. She’s just so unmainstream that it frazzles my boring, cookie cutter senses. That sounds way more reasonable.

  18. Tiffany says:

    How did she turn Amy’s death into being about her???? She was ASKED HER THOUGHTS on Amy’s passing. She said that she didn’t know her, but was inspired by her.

    Some of ya’ll have a HUGE stick stuck up somewhere unfortunate.

  19. kira says:

    I love it when people discuss the death of others only in how it relates to themselves–“she was different just like me. I was mistaken for her,” etc. Just another thing Gaga copies from Madonna. Remember, Madonna’s eulogy for Michael Jackson? It was stunning in its repetition of “me” and “so was I.” Just stunning. Celeb narcissism at its finest. 🙂

  20. chasingadalia says:

    Not that I’m defending her, but… Gaga has said for a few years now that the reason she dyed her hair blonde to begin with when looking to get signed was because people used to mistake her for Amy.

  21. jover says:

    Original kate you forgot rob fusari, her label/handlers/management team, corporate sponsors, etc. Read the quote she quickly turns it to herself fake mediocre narcissist that she is.

  22. Erin says:

    @the orginal bellaluna – I was thinking the same thing…I actually thought this post was about Adele and those little “monsters”…

  23. Anonymous says:

    yes, she was mistaken for winehouse: in several interviews in past years, she mentioned it and her choice to dye her hair.

    of course she is a narcissist. whats the big deal with this? and why shouldnt she think about herself when she thinks about amy? naturally, with her coke habit and her fame and her handlers, she should be thinking about what happened to amy… she isnt amy, she is so much more packaged. i hope she is more cautious also.

  24. Anonymous says:

    GAGA is a human just like she aloud to express his feelings

  25. Annie says:

    Most of the above coments is just prove that most soul lovers think that pop is stupid why cant u just love both for their pecularites

  26. Jules says:

    Like #1 said, nothing about Adele. Gaga can’t piss-off her monsters, it might cut off the cash. Gaga is so 2010

  27. the original bellaluna says:

    @ Erin – I thought so too. I guess the joke’s on us.

  28. VeneficA Delirium says:

    Wait, people still actually believe this woman’s original?

    Yes she did turn this around to her. Do people find it a coincidence that any time she talks about someone, she must make it about herself? Her face is right below the definition for Histrionic Personality Disorder in the dictionary. She’s self absorbed and exaggerates her relationships with people.

    And she *vaguely* looks like Amy Winehouse at best. I saw pictures of her with dark hair and she looked more like Sporty Spice than Amy Winehouse, but not enough to get mistaken for her either.

    What I want to know is why her haircolors always look so muted and faded out. You’re a celebrity. Go consult a professional to dye your hair.

  29. dread pirate cuervo says:

    @original kate: Truth! & is Gaga’s sentiment that all “different” people look the same? LOL

  30. Katija says:

    Actually, if you look at pre-crack Amy and pre-fame brunette Gaga, there is a slight resemblance. SLIGHT. Regardless, it’s tacky for Gaga to try to make it all about her. She has a bit of the Tyra syndrome.

  31. Madison says:

    “It’s a lesson to the world. Don’t kill the superstar, take care of her soul”

    I thought the lesson was don’t abuse drugs and alcohol and go to rehab if you have a problem. Sadly Amy killed herself, there was nothing anyone could do even though many tried for years.

  32. lisas says:

    For what it’s worth, I remember Gaga saying that she went platinum because she was often mistaken for Amy when she was still brunette. Back when Amy was still alive and Gaga was riding the Just Dance rocket. So I believe her.

  33. Cherry Rose says:

    Of course, nothing about how sad that Amy died nor anything saying that her heart goes out for Amy’s grieving family and friends.

    Instead, Gaga finds a way to bring the topic back to herself.

    Too bad Gaga will never be like Amy. Amy had true talent, and didn’t need stupid costumes or gimmicks to sell her music, nor did she need to spout off “wisdom” to the world. Something that Gaga will never understand.

    @VeneficA Delirium – I had posted on a Britney thread (we ended up talking about Gaga somehow) on how Gaga seems to have Histrionic Personality Disorder, but I also think she has some characteristics of Narcissistic Personality Disorder as well, but these two Personality Disorders usually run hand in hand.

  34. hatsumomo says:

    Methinks she just needs to quite down and stick to singing. Im a fan of both ladies, but really, I would chose Amy’s music over Gaga’s if I had to…

  35. MarenGermany says:

    I dont hate her, but what kind of mind does it take to make somebodys death all about you?

  36. Crys says:

    that blue and cream ensemble are the most “normal” and flattering looking outfits I have seen her in. Thing is, she actually looks good when shes not trying to look like a total drag queen.

  37. Cherry Rose says:

    I hate to say this, but I love that blue suit Gaga is wearing. If they had it in black, white, or red, I’d so wear it.

    But without the tacky nipple things.

  38. John Wayne Lives says:

    shut up gaga

  39. Amy says:

    I remember reading somewhere one of the reasons she dyed her hair platinum blonde was because so many people mistook her for Amy Winehouse.

  40. Cherry Rose says:

    The point isn’t whether Gaga looked vaguely like Amy Winehouse in her early days. It’s about what she said.

    “It’s a lesson to the world. Don’t kill the superstar, take care of her soul. I was nobody when [Amy] was first coming out. I would be on the street and people would go, ‘Amy’. I just remember feeling like I wasn’t alone, because she was so different.”

    The point we’re trying to make is that Gaga had to make a reference to herself. She couldn’t just well say she was sorry that Amy passed on and say something nice like, “The world has lost a talented singer” or something like that.

    Like the narcissist she is, Gaga just had to include something about herself when there was no need to do so.

  41. Shaz says:

    insipid & melodramatic

  42. duncecap says:

    She’s just slapping syllables together at this point, right?

  43. Anonymous says:

    @Cherry Rose, yup you and I discussed Gaga in the Britney thread and I agreed with you that Gaga has Histrionic Personality Disorder (she goes to sleep wearing her pearls and heels for crying out loud) and I posted the symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and how Gaga fits it to a T.

    @VeneficA Delirium actually, it was Streamline Records president and executive producer Vince Herbert who ordered that Gaga bleach her hair because some people thought she looked too much like Amy.

    —…the spring of 2007, when [Rob Fusari] heard that his friend Vincent Herbert, a “hustler with a capital H,” had landed a deal with Interscope to sign new artists. Within a couple days, Herbert had them on a plane to Los Angeles to meet Jimmy Iovine, the head of Interscope. Herbert even spent his own money to send her to Lollapalooza over the summer, and he started to think that her look was wrong—someone in the audience shouted out “Amy Winehouse,” and that made him nervous.

    “I told her that she needed to dye her hair blonde, and she did it right away,” says Herbert. “God bless that girl, she really does listen.”

    On vacation in the Cayman Islands with Luc Carl, Gaga picked a fight, and he told her that he wasn’t sure she was going to make it. “One day, you’re not going to go into a deli without hearing me,” she spat back. Back in New York, she sat down at a table at Beauty Bar with Sullivan, despondent. “I’m getting a nose job,” she said. “I’m going to get a new nose, and I’m moving to L.A., and I’m going to be huge.” He pleaded with her to be reasonable; like a true city kid, Gaga doesn’t even know how to drive. “Whatever,” she said. “I have the money. I just want to start fresh.”

    Sullivan told her about Warhol’s Before and After I painting of two noses, before and after rhinoplasty, with a word that looks like RAPED at the top. She went up to the Met one afternoon and stood in front of it. She bought books about Warhol, which helped her make sense of her journey while providing a new vocabulary to talk about her creations. “Andy’s books became her bible,” says Darian Darling, a friend. “She would highlight them with a pen.”—

    Gaga always tries to inject herself in the same sentiments of other stars. She didn’t even know of the work and aesthetic of her supposed “idol” Warhol until 4 years ago.

  44. ness says:

    i liked her when she started, but now i find her boring.

  45. DethHammer says:

    Oops I posted this twice and forgot to put my name. UGH

  46. Annie_Grey says:

    The entire blue look is Madonna.

  47. ViloDeMenus says:

    Jules said: “Gaga is so 2010” hahaha! Love it – so true.

  48. VeneficaDelirium says:

    Cherry, the line between being histrionic is very thin. They’re almost interchangeable. I agree with you about being a narcissist too. My mother still owns the volume of Vogue Magazine with her on the front cover from this year. In the interview, she called herself the “best pop artist” or something, which is pretty arrogant, regardless of whether you’re talented or not (I personally have yet to hear anything by her remarkable) or how you feel about your peers’ music. For some reason, Gaga thinks she deserves to call herself the “greatest artist of her generation” when nobody else but her rabid “Little Monsters” has rewarded her with that title.

    To Anonymous: I can believe that. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve developed some new interests in the past few years as well, but not for the same shallow reasons that Gaga suddenly became obsessed with Warhol. Everything about her is skin deep.

    And, I’ve seen old photos of her with brown hair. I’ve even seen the Boiling Points clip (See also: the right connections) with her in it at least five times. She looks slightly like Amy Winehouse, but I think she may be hyperbolizing the resemblance just a tad. I don’t think that she bleached her hair so that she wouldn’t be mistaken for Winehouse. I think she bleached her hair because she took offense at the comparison.

  49. DethHammer says:

    @Venefica Delirium Hi Venefica, I’m “Anonymous” who posted the comment about Vincent Herbert ordering Gaga to bleach her hair. I forgot to type in my name and by the time I’d realized it, it was too late LOL. I agree that people can take up new interests at any age, but Gaga shouldn’t be posturing as if she’s been a lifelong follower of Warhol.

    Yup, she was on MTV’s Boiling Point in 2005, The Hills a about two or three years after that, and she also had a cameo role on the Sopranos in 2005. Because she’s always been just so alternative and counterculture LOL Her father was president and chairman of one telecom corporation (Global Touch) and the founder of another (Guest Wifi) and her mother used to be VP of Verizon for cryin’ out loud!

    I remember you saying you’re into metal. It’s always nice to meet a fellow metalhead! 🙂

  50. VeneficaDelirium says:

    Hey, DethHammer. I totally agree with you on the whole pretending to follow Warhol all her life thing. She could’ve just left it at “Well, I’ve been getting into some of Warhol’s work recently”, but instead words it as though she’s dedicated her life to his works.

    I always got the impression that she was a pampered little rich girl, but I’d say that daddy being the president of a telecom corporation and therefore associating her with the media really proves that she’s never really earned anything, and The Hills? That’s just downright hysterical to me, especially because people credit her for “revolutionizing goth”, as a quasi-friend of mine believes.

    It is actually relatively tough finding someone on these type of entertainment websites who enjoy metal. It’s a rarety. It’s pretty cool, actually.

  51. DethHammer says:

    @Venefica Delirium, your quasi-friend thinks Gaga “revolutionized goth”!? I actually had to sit down when I read that. I’m still feeling a little dizzy.

    Gaga herself isn’t goth or even metal; her boyfriend Luc Carl and her friend and former performing partner Lady Starlight are the metalheads; Gaga just hangs out with them a lot.

    From the very informative NYMag article (written last year):

    —-She fell desperately in love with Luc Carl, a 29-year-old drummer and manager of the rock bar St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street. That’s where she met Lady Starlight, an L.E.S. fixture in her thirties —M.A.C makeup artist, D.J., performance artist— who still plays shows for $60 but has a vast knowledge of rock music and style history.

    “Starlight and I bonded instantly over her love of heavy metal and my love of boys that listen to heavy metal,” says Gaga.

    Gaga started performing her songs with Starlight at small venues, and go-go dancing under a red lightbulb at Pianos—she’d wear a bikini and Luc Carl’s fingerless black gloves, too big for her small hands. Dancing, diet pills, and one real meal a day was the way she finally lost weight, according to a friend. “I was naked on a bar with money hanging out of my tits and ass,” she says.—-

    I posted the link for the NYMag article in the other Gaga thread.

    What kind of metal do you like?

  52. michael bays comb over says:

    at tiffany-take a look at what cherry rose said-thats the sentiment here. yes she was asked what she think-still didnt mean she had to turn her death into all about her. stick up our asses? more like we cant stand BS, pity YOU are just too stupid to see it.

  53. jover says:

    You’re posts are excellent dethhammer and veneficadelirium; I’m more into hard rock/guitar gods from the 60s -90s; I’ve seen the MTV boiling point clip on youtube magnificently haute couture outfit right hah. But I didn’t know about the appearance on that vehicle of leninist revolution oops I mean low brow consumerism THE HILLs that’s just funny. One more reason to despise this fake keep preaching; but what will do her in is what everyone on this site have been commenting on – her “music” lately is bad to horrid, and even in the pop genre you need fun listenable dance music and an upbeat fun personality – she lacks both.

  54. original kate says:

    “Andy’s books became her bible,” says Darian Darling, a friend. “She would highlight them with a pen.”

    i’m sure warhol would find that rather pathetic.

  55. sluggo says:

    Oh, I see … Gaga is a wild untamed natural talent and anybody, ANYBODY who makes even a HINT that she is not Music’s Gift to an Awakening Generation has a ginormous stick up the ass, and should be shunned for breaking the fragile butterfly wings of Gaga’s artistic originality.

    Then there are a LOT of people walking around with a stick up the ass, including many other artists (who are surely self-delusional for thinking they can compete with Her Ladyship).

    So don’t let it get around about those other artists’ ass sticks, because Lady Klepto … er, Gaga … will show up at an airport next week with a solid gold Thierry Mugler stick jammed firmly up her ass — and it will be so huge and so far up her ass, she will need two MORE assistants to walk her through the airport. Because she was Born that Way.

  56. Goofpuff says:

    The amount of money she spends on her wacky outfits that she really can only wear once is staggering. She’ll bankrupt herself soon enough.

  57. VeneficA Delirium says:

    @DethHammer: Oh yeah. I wanted to argue with him, but no point. Prime example of one of those shallow fanboys. Basically, he wants to bang her. I don’t know what his incentive for vehemently whiteknighting the Gagster is, but he needs to join reality. It’s not like she’s going to sleep with him.

    Gaga’s associations don’t lead me to believe she is capable of friendships or love, just social climbing and opportunism. Again, right connections. I don’t think she has any friends who aren’t somehow attached to the industry. A name-dropping phoney.

    I saw the NYmag article in the other thread. Also, all the rejects, outcasts, and “freaks” of society know the right people to hang out with and find money hanging out of their tits and ass. Yep, all outcasts do that.

    What type of metal I like? I like a lot of the classics, like Metallica, Dio, and Iron Maiden, some thrash here and there, but I adore black metal too. What do you listen to?

    @Jover: Thanks, and I agree. When her looks begin fading, she will no longer have any fans because as demonstrated above, a lot of them must be pretty shallow. For many of her “little monsters” I personally know, that she’s “hot” is the foremost thing they seem to enjoy about her and only shallow people would go after someone as harmless as Adele for being overweight. As if attacking her merely for being her competition isn’t bad enough, they went after the poor girl for being heavy set.

    She doesn’t have the personality OR TALENT to stay around when she gets too old or fat for walking around in public with her bits hanging out. When Britney Spears hit rock bottom, she made a comeback because she’s likeable. Gaga isn’t.

  58. DethHammer says:

    @Venefica Deilirum, All of my straight guy friends find Gaga to be hideous, both in looks and personality. The only two straight guys I knew who liked Gaga were in their 40s and going through nasty divorces and viewed Gaga as a sexy escape. And those two guys who liked her kept saying how “hot” she was. I do think Gaga is very attractive (coming from a straight girl’s perspective here), but her ego is larger than the sun now.

    I love the classics- Metallica, Dio, Maiden, Motorhead, Megadeth, Slayer, etc. And I like black/death metal too; I’m trying to find a used copy of Therion’s ‘Sirius B’ album. I’m also very into industrial (my favorite genre) and post-industrial, and I love Wumpscut and Skinny Puppy and things like that. And NIN is still my favorite LOL

  59. VeneficaDelirium says:

    I agree that she is very attractive, despite that she has a number of flaws…which is fine, except her fans just attacked Adele for her aesthetic shortcomings.

    Industrial is good too. I listen to Wumpscut quite regularly.
