    OMFG This cover looks amazing!
    Lady GaGa will blow all the haters mind on Friday!, I bet all you haters hate on her on the internet, but in reality u secretly listen to her songs!

    Call this cover ugly, disgusting, tranny or whatever…. Born This Way is about not caring and letting it go, and loving yourself! So we little monsters do not care what all you haters say! "Haters are gonna hate" Lady GAGa you are awesome!…. I think as she releases singles and new artworks she's gonna grow her horns into a full-pledged unicorn!

    106

    this is horrible.soo predictable



  7. 107

    i think the concept behind born this way is more about you can be who you want. not i was born naked. born w/o earthly shit.



  8. 108

    What I noticed is that the haters aren't bashing her that much.
    Could it be that they're impressed! WOAH!!! Hold it!!

    Hahahaha admit it haters, you love the cover!
    IT's fierce, glamorous & flawless!



  9. 109

    Wow, I never noticed how much she looks like Kesha!

  10. M: says – reply to this


    110

    madonna never sleeps i wanna see what she will bring next.poor gaga



  11. 111

    I'm not a huge Gaga fan but I do like this cover.



  12. 112

    Re: The Queen of pop

    LOL! This coming from someone with a Brit Brit avatar.

    113

    perfectly decent cover- and i'll probably appreciate it more when I understand why the face and shoulders are different. However, I was kinda expecting something a bit more outrageous….it's a bit of a safe cover considering all the hype etc..but then again she may have surprises in store and when the meaning of the cover comes to light it might give it a more significance. i dunno, But right I'm a bit 'huh, ok, cool' whereas I was expecting to be like OMFG! Also, why the early release? Something to do with a certain ms spears and the epic press attention she's getting at the moment? Or is that sinister of me….



  14. 114

    Pretty much as generic is it gets. FAIL!



  15. 115

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Impossible, that would mean she'd be wearing abercrombie and fitch clothes, be a brunette and have a coke line under her nose.



  16. 116

    Re: Agent_Mariah – yeah sweetie, Britney's was a beauty shot, because unlike others she doesn't have to be over the top to get recognition. So go fuck yourself



  17. 117

    PHOTO SHOP MUCH?



  18. 118

    I like it. Great ziggy stardust/fantasy reference.



  19. 119

    devil.



  20. 120

    lmao, we all know how ugly she really is in real life. next. so desperate to look good.. just accept your fugly like donatella versace does.



  21. 121

    Wow! That's Illuminati!



  22. 122

    everyone's excited to laugh at her, idiots. no one would want to trade bodies with googoo.



  23. 123

    ugly! next!



  24. 124

    It's a Knock off of Kylie Minogue's Album Cover: 2 Hearts!
    **** The same font type and the similar pose and look!



  25. 125

    omg. who gives a fuck.



  26. 126

    This is a complete rip-off of Kylie's 2 Hearts. Not surprised that she continues to steal.



  27. 127

    ewwww! why arent you talking about it being tooooo photoshopped?!!!! funny shit how you can criticize other artist but when it comes to her, you are so far up her ass she farts glitter! …the cover is just meh!



  28. 128

    Even with photoshop she looks absolutely disgusting. Those bumps on her face and body aren't too complimenting either.



  29. 129

    Airbrushed to the MAX. Whats up with the sholder?????????????



  30. 130

    HORRIBLE! I dont like it



  31. 131

    Not a Monster or anything but I kinda like it. She def doesnt look pretty but its different and I guess thats what she is right or tries to be? Different?



  32. 132

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! ALL YOU HATERS ARE GONNA LISTEN TO THE SONG SO STFU. MOST OF YOU ARE UGLY AND ARE CLEARLY JEALOUS…SO PATHETIC!!! its coming monsters!!!!!!!!



  33. 133

    Re: Marco Antonio Jiménez Castellanos – hoo bitch keep making tacos and burritos of bull cock and eat it ;( yes xtina mix up the national anthem so what ??? SHE WILL BE OPEN THE GRAMMYS THIS SUNDAY !!!! Hahahahahaha you a fucking loser LOLITA ;(



  34. 134

    I 100% thought this was Ke$ha. Looks just like her.

  35. me23 says – reply to this


    135

    I like the font and the overall idea, but, is she trying to make herself look ugly on purpose??? Her nose looks huge (when in fact it's not that big), what happened to her eyebrows, and those things protruding from her face and shoulders are kind of… disturbing… Like it's almost gross to look at… :(

    I'm sure the single will still be EPIC just not the cover…



  36. 136

    Also, I really have strong feelings about the bones showing through in this photo. Love her or hate her, she has a TON of young fans that are so easily influenced and I'd hate to think of them developing horrid eating habits to emulate her. Yeah, they might just be photoshopped and she might not be that boney - but a 13 yr. old won't know that. I *want* to like it but so many reservations jump to my mind that it's hard to look past them.



  37. 137

    looks like a drag queen with a peacock on his head



  38. 138

    I love how he says "channeling" if it was anyone else the words woulda been "Ripping Off, stealing, copying, imitating" what a hack



  39. 139

    She looks like Marilyn Manson.



  40. 140

    Love it! Excellent design and read. A little bit of 80s in there, too. Nice!



  41. 141

    Only person she is channeling is Keisha! Looks just like her



  42. 142

    This fucking tranny rips off Madonna , xtinna , Manson , grace jones , and now Kylie
    minogue , what a fucking loser she is a shame ;(



  43. 143

    Re: Ivybby – AHAHAHA! I love you :D



  44. 144

    Re: Ritechappy – YO!!! WHAT UP MENG!!!! She does look like Ke$ha!!!



  45. 145

    Re: MadonnaIive – LoVeS iT hahaha..(in Nicki voice)



  46. 146

    Re: jobo – Looks like the same font from the Purpule Rain album cover! Can she come up with anything her Own??



  47. 147

    Horseface.



  48. 148

    UGLY



  49. 149

    love it!



  50. 150

    just one word: EWWWWWWWW!!!



  51. 151

    Lost my other comment. As far as the cover goes - I hope her airbrusher gets a HUMONGOUS bonus after this! I agree w/ everyone who says that this is kind of ridiculous for an album titled Born This Way. I wish she would just take some time out of the public eye - I'm getting exhausted of all her antics. YES, she is an amazing musician - but I want her music, not her outfits, not her politics, or anything else. She has become so much about the "schitck" that it's detracting. She needs to put out an album where it's just her and the piano.



  52. 152

    Looks like Ke$ha! Am I wrong?



  53. 153

    I saw this on a different site before I saw it here. So much for an exclusive.

    Plus I'm pretty sure she wasn't born with horns on her forehead and pointy shoulders.

    PS Thanks for not posting my previous comment.



  54. 154

    I love it!!



  55. 155

    I have been reading your site for so long and really enjoy it…having said that you are such a hypocrite Perez!!! I really don't get you at all these days! you say Britney's album cover is way over photoshopped, but you don't think Lady Gaga's is at all?!?! r u serious?! this is obviously photoshopped and you know it! you just don't want to admit it because it's your wifey! I am a Lady Gaga fan don't get me wrong, but you saying she is the Queen of pop?! she still has so much more to prove as an artist, where Britney has been in the game for what over 10 years now! and she is getting ready to release her 7th album! Gaga is releasing her 2nd album with new material. I really don't think it's fair how you think Gaga is above everyone else in the Pop world, I feel like you have this secret vendetta out to get everyone against Britney and have it be ALL about Gaga! I guess what I am trying to say is Britney is def the new QUEEN of pop whether you like it or not and Gaga is becoming a Princess of Pop! Era of #FEMMEFATALE!!!!!!!!



  56. 156

    I had to stare at this for like 5 minutes because I SWORE it was kesha…yet all you do is make fun of kesha and say she looks trashy. I love your site, but you have got to stop picking favorites and being so hypocritical!



  57. 157

    Re: M: – why hasnt your visa been revoked??



  58. 158

    I see this picture and its not bad.. looks good i like Gaga but but this Dale Bozzio from Missing Persons everything from the hair to make up to alot of her stage outfits where similar to Bozzio even the triangle on the eye or the thunderstrike

    Dale Bozzio (missing persons) and Gaga should do a song together since alot of her inspiration or her style is from Bozzio



  59. 159

    scaring



  60. 160

    The font they used to spell her name could be read as gaby sasa if you were not paying attention lol. I don't know about the cover but what really matters is the music so far the music/lyrics leaked has been ok not great.



  61. 161

    I'm not a fan of Lady Gaga, but I don't think this picture was right for her, she looks like a man instead of herself. The drag race grew would look better in this cover kind of design than her. I'm going to skip this album since I can't stand her at all. Shes a narcissis and craves the attention. The message for the album is good just not the right cover.

  62. joor says – reply to this


    162

    People who say they hate the photo are always the same people..please change your nick at least ;)



  63. 163

    i like the cover, i just did not like ”Born this way” i hope she or the producer change the pitch



  64. 164

    Re: kidneypie3 – I agree. Maybe then I will give her another chance. It's exhausting seeing her places and seeing her videos. She WAY too over the top now. It's getting predictable. "Oh, there is Lady Gaga in another crazy outfit…etc" I'm sure she would get most of lost fans back by stripping down and being real. It's all an act now.



  65. 165

    love it…!! very creative and fashionista!! let's hope for the music, ’cause the lyrics………



  66. 166

    Perez, you're pretty tactless, we know now that her looking skinny and somewhat cat like must mean something, as Gaga tells you all of this first hand, and exactly what to say. She's amazing. And I do like how she is using this site to present info.



  67. 167

    ummmmmm the album is called BORN THIS WAY
    sooooo why is the cover MEGA PHOTOSHOPED?



  68. 168

    if she meant what she said, she would have NO photoshop, brown hair, no makeup and look like stefani germanotta. she could have turned this around in her favor, she would have looked GOOD. but no, it's just sustaining the hypocrisy. a lot of people would have respect if she had a natural cover!

    #failthisway, #liethisway, #BSmorethisway



  69. 169

    oh nooo..THIS makes me so sad. I was such a GaGa fan when she first burst on the scene. Now she's literally unrecognizable on so many levels. With that being said, I've yet to hear "born this way." Maybe it will be a masterpiece?? I really want to love GaGa, but her style and music has been a turn off as of late. I wish I could blink her back to the days of Poker Face and Love Game. But like I said before, maybe this new album will actually be amazing. I really hope so!



  70. 170

    Ok, I get "Born This Way" now. She wants up to accept the aliens that walk amongst us that the CIA have been trying to keep under wraps all these years! How else can you explain that over air brushed freaky picture?

  71. barny says – reply to this


    171

    Even with all the Photoshop she is still the UGLIEST female singer.You can only do so much with someone who is as UGLY as she is.Going to enjoy watching Britney's new album out sell Prince GaGas.



  72. 172

    Guh…people who still call Lady GaGa "fugly" and such just make me laugh. Yes, she's not the most attractive pop star around, but does that really matter? She has TALENT. I find it kind of hypocritical that people get upset by how popular 'pretty girls who lip-sync' like Britney Spears and Cheryl Cole are, yet when an average-looking person with true talent becomes a mega-star all they can do is comment on her looks.
    This cover isn't supposed to be a glamour shot. I don't think they took this photo with the intent to put it in Maxim magazine. Perez hinted that the bumps on her body could have something to do with the music video/album, so why don't we wait and see. Sheesh, who would have thought that in the future people would become so critical of not album covers, but SINGLE covers. Bigger fish to fry, people…



  73. 173

    eeewwwww



  74. 174

    LOVE GAGA
    HATE THE COVER
    Its so bad that im not buying a hard copy



  75. 175

    ke$sha wannabe? is what this album cover says to me



  76. 176

    its a HOMAGE to Alexander McQueen!



  77. 177

    CAUSE WE WERE BORN THIS WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU LOOK GORGEOUS MOMMY MONSTER!!!!!! #MOTHERMONSTER #MONSTERNATION #BORNTHISWAY!!!! OMG-NESS GUYS BORNT THIS WAY IS GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD!!!!



  78. 178

    i love lady gaga, she's very talented although oversexed. however, this picture makes her look terrible. scary and just awful.



  79. 179

    WOW you all critisised Britneys album cover for being safe and too airbrushed! Least she looked hot! This cover is airbrushedd plus its UGLLLLYYYYYYY! And her face and pointy shoulders=scary + vom



  80. 180

    Re: Bambi*Star – Last time i checked lady tranny was lip-syncing and using a backing-track to.



  81. 181

    Lady CA CA does it again…this time she rips off Kie$ha's skanky look…and I thought she couldn't get uglier…



  82. 182

    Re: Fernando Castaneda – No you lazy asshat. Get on google and you'll find several pictures of her VERY FEMALE nether bits.



  83. 183

    Re: robert26101 – Back-tracking, yes [have you heard Poker Face? It's kind of hard to sound robotic live] but I doubt she has lip-synced unless it was necessary to do so. Performing on some programs require you to lip sync. Pull up a clip, then, and let us see…



  84. 184

    Re: CruellaDeVil – They are facial prosthetics. It's a tribute to Alexander McQueen's SS10 show, "Alien".



  85. 185

    Re: robert26101 – You must not know any trannies, then, because that is NOT the photo of a tranny. Too bad this site lets such ignorance be posted



  86. 186

    Wow, call Britney's new cover "a little too photoshopped" when it is hardly photoshopped, but to you because its Lady Gaga it just rocks. Wow dude, this is way more photoshopped than Britney's is, not to mention it's ugly… yuck.



  87. 187

    what an insult to cindy crawford.
    she looks like a diseased transexual with tumors under her skin, not pretty at all, it's disgusting.
    oh and Divine did it better, nice try but Fail.



  88. 188

    If this wasn't in back and white, it would be Kylie Minogue from three years ago…except Kylie's take on this was much more impressive and original…and also, it's funny how you didn't make any photoshop quips about this…seriously you get too excited over nothing….maybe you should try skydiving or bungee jumping, or some kind of genuine thrill seeking activity that is worth getting excited about, instead of a picture of someone which has been done time and time before, cause honestly, I just don't get it myself…



  89. 189

    She's once again trying to steal someone's look - Kesha!!!

  90. @v@ says – reply to this


    190

    Paying homage to forehead horns. Suitably creepy.



  91. 191

    Re: M: – You wouldn't know a real tranny if s/he bit you on the ass. You've just your head so far up your own ass, you're gonna break your neck one of these days when you sit down



  92. 192

    Re: SmackUTwice – What makes you think she's TRYING to look human? She's not. That's part of the image. She's nowhere near the end. She's just getting warmed up. She'll be around for decades



  93. 193

    I have to admit…it's a little odd :-) …I knew something was different… the shoulders are weird… but it just gets me excited to find out why its like that! Overall I love it! The hair is amazing! And the makeup is crazy cool! I also love how all her art for her new album, so far, is in black and white! Is it Friday yet??????



  94. 194

    Re: Bambi*Star – you're stupid if you can't see they're doing everything in the photoshop magic book possible to make her look attractive.



  95. 195

    Re: redmond – No, you moron, he's alluding to the prosthetics on her face and shoulders. Try thinking with your brain instead of your bigotry.



  96. 196

    Re: T-Brett – It's not done with photoshop. It's done with makeup, prosthetics, lighting, and the right camera lenses.



  97. 197

    Re: Betch84 – JESUS CHRIST! MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL!!!!!



  98. 198

    Clearly, its a very artistic cover. EPIC-LICIOUS!! I'd like to see her look gurly and cute for a change though, something a lil normal. I wonder what people would think. Im sure the world would be shock!! Cant wait to hear the track!



  99. 199

    is the song gunna be out on ITUNES on FEB 11 or just on the radio???



  100. 200

    Seriously, if you think that lady gaga is copying Kesha your a FUCKING idiot. Some of you are serious haters. ALL OF U HATERS CAN GO TO HELL. It looks nothing like kesha. I dont see glitter or feathers or blue lips. And just to let you know every picture is airbrushed. She also has prosthetics on.
