    Re: gymfreak
    I seriously doubt Kylie or Lady GaGa had anything much to do with their respective album covers, other than probably looking at the shots and going, "Ooh, I like this one." If you want to blame people for unoriginality (and frankly, between Kylie's X and this cover, the only similarities I see is the font, which is an 80's throwback), blame the photographers, designers, art directors, etc.

    hahahaha she looks like Ke$ha….



  3. 203

    Ke$ha + Dale Bozio + weird shoulder = this picture. I am excited for her music, though and I appreciate her message.



  4. 204

    now I have thought about it, I love this cover, as she looks like a transexual, and surely that is the whole point - it beautiful, cos you know she is a beautiful person.



  5. 205

    Fucking Demon.



  6. 206

    she looks like shit! I really don't understand the hype around this woman at all.. People only talk about her cause she wears the craziest clothes in the book!



  7. 207

    She looks good, But def looks like a tranny!!!



  8. 208

    Oh goodie shes auditioning for ru pauls drag rac…..



  9. 209

    Shes cute and I like her, but she is WAY OVERRATED!!!! Remember how long the Fame was out before she become big? Thats because her music isnt that great…. Just saying. As far as the whole package tho girl is fierce!!! Good luck Gaga, but i cant wait until everyone pulls out of your ass so i can like you again!!

    Re: Cheryl Helm – Honey i know pleanty of trannies and believe lady caca looks just like one!!!!



  11. 211

    Re: Bambi*Star – I'm not your slave or your bitch do your own research there are plenty of videos if you take the time to look. I'm not hating on gaga for lip-syncing or using a backing-track i know there are times these things are needed!!! But if you going to rag on britney for doing it you might as well start ragging on everyone else !!!! Because she is not alone!!!!!



  12. 212

    ewwww



  13. 213

    Cindy Crafword??? You idiot……try CRAWFORD.

    God you're illiterate.



  14. 214

    LOVE IT!!!!! She looks like an exotic creature. Perfect.



  15. 215

    This is so Kesha!!!



  16. 216

    Re: Claudio Campi – clearly thats not gonna happen. freedom of speech you heard of that?



  17. 217

    AMAZING

  18. IVIV says – reply to this


    218

    She looks like the resulting child of Bette Midler's character as the witch in Hocus Pocus mating with…a mole rat or something. That mouth! Also, I don't understand all those fake things on her shoulders and face. How is that "born this way"? Nothing about this cover, or her in general, is real. Don't get it.



  19. 219

    ew…what the fuck



  20. 220

    I love Nick Knight photography! Good choice!



  21. 221

    Dissapointing. Nothing special. Seen variations of this many, many times before.

  22. IVIV says – reply to this


    222

    Britney and her fans are going to shit all over Gaga and her garbage pail kids



  23. 223

    Looks like a rat in a wig.



  24. 224

    Wow. Marilyn Manson looks really good in this picture!



  25. 225

    She looks like Jared Lee Loughner with a wig.



  26. 226

    love it!!!!



  27. 227

    what is wrong with you fuckers!!!! she's gorgeous!!!! I can't wait until friday!!!!!!!!!!! *dies*



  28. 228

    This copycat bitch never stops! Now she's ripping off the font from Pink Floyd's The Wall.. HATE HER!!!!!!!!!!!



  29. 229

    Re: Big Ethel – Really? You're fucking retarded hold them up side by side the letters are nothing alike, Pink Floyd didn't invent sloppy handwriting. When I write fast sometimes it looks like that so am I copying off them too?



  30. 230

    holy kylie minogue



  31. 231

    she's supposed to look like a tranny! you people who don't believe that are not bright. the whole point of this album is to highlight the idea of being born gay. you guys need to do your homework before you criticize something you don't know



  32. 232

    Re: M: – shouldn't you actually listen to the song before you start hating on it? blind hate… exactly what Born This Way is speaking against. You're just jealous that you will never look this amazing, that you will never be a multi-million dollar recording artist, you will never have fans who love you, or defend you. Just leave your negativity at the door, cos baby we ain't listenin no more. You speak but have nothing to say. who cares? we'll stand tall cos baby we were BORN THIS WAY!



  33. 233

    love this. people need to stop hating on it. she may be gimmicky but shes standing up for a good cause, she's speaking out for a lot of people. cant wait for the single



  34. 234

    Lady Rabbit



  35. 235

    Fuck she has a big nose………….



  36. 236

    Re: YoungTaurus – I only mentioned Kylie because everyone is constantly going on about this 'originality' Gaga is supposed to posses, when really this cover is nothing to get excited to get about, especially whne there is and has been better 'artwork' out there…and to me, the concept (down to the make-up, hair, overall direction) is very similar, though I prefer Kylie's, especially from a make-up artist's point of view



  37. 237

    LOVE IT! can't wait to hear the song and see her perform it at the grammys!!!!!

  38. IVIV says – reply to this


    238

    Re: abeybaby – so someone, a woman, who is not a "tranny", is doing herself up like one for her theme of being "born this way"? I can understand if she wants you to love yourself, and trust me that's nothing new, pretty much every celebrity has been saying that to their fans since the beginning of time and that's not what they have a problem with…it's her plan of attack that is gimmicky, self serving and confusing. She is not a transvestite, for her to dress up as one just to talk about being "born this way" is a nonsensical approach. She is a woman, and just because she tells everyone she is bisexual, she has to basically "ugly herself" up on purpose when talking about this cause? It's almost offensive to actual transvestites, no? She could just cut the gimmick crap, not dress up as a transvestite and photoshop horns on her forehead and shoulders. A lot of people just aren't making the connection.

    241

    She is really ugly but in that pic she looks worst, like an Alien.
    Perez did you really said that britne's cover was photoshoped, hahahhaha.

    Gaga doesn´t even look like her in the pic. her body is so strange, it doesn't looks human.

    Sorry Gaga but Britney wont again.

    horseface channeling cindy crawford? you might look into hiring a lawyer if cindy gets to read that…



  44. 244

    Where are her eyebrows?



  45. 245

    errr ke$ha much??!



  46. 246

    Not as great as I hoped, but I'm still counting down for the single!



  47. 247

    i think the horn things look weird. was she born not the right way?



  48. 248

    she needs to eat a sandwich,,,, or twenty, she clearly has a serious problem, its sad



  49. 249

    Re: albes – You don't know the story about the cover so stfu.
    Britney never wins if we compare her to Gaga, stay mad. Love.



  50. 250

    Re: Cheryl Helm – If this is a tribute to McQueen then someone in her camp better speak up. If not then it's not a tribute but a rip off. McQueen had a very large celebrity following but you don't others molding to themselves as some tribute. I think you just made a fool of yourself.



  51. 251

    Re: Abbylynn – "see others"



  52. 252

    Re: abeybaby – Gawd!! This is the most ignorant comment I have ever read. I have met a few trannies in my day and many gay people. None looked anything like that. If what your saying is true and I were either I would be greatly offended by this picture.



  53. 253

    The cover is beautiful, even she, who is ugly as hell, looks good here.
    However, the style and typography are identical to Kylie Minogue's 2 Hearts cover.
    Lady Gaga, always sucking something out of someone else.
    Looks good, though.



  54. 254

    Fucking amazing!!!!!!!!!



  55. 255

    Love her eyes and hair



  56. 256

    Re: YouKnowNothing – You are kidding right? How are they anything alike? Just asking. Hers is in colors, different pose, different make-up, different hair and Kyle didn't have any of those "bumps" either. Anyway, I think both of them had other people then them self to decide which photo to take and how to look.



  57. 257

    why again does a single need artwork nowadays? its not like you can go to a store and BUY a single anymore. and when u buy it online all u get is a small square pix to go on your ipod. just another waste of money.



  58. 258

    OMG this is a COMPLETE RIP OFF OF KYLIE MINOGUE'S X ALBUM COVER FROM 2007….YES YOU AMERICANS A RIP OFF OF KYLIE MINOGUE'S X ALBUM COVER, can this girl do anything original at all!!!!



  59. 259

    Re: Dirrty Spice
    From an artistic point of view, the album covers that you're comparing are very much different. There's a lot going on between the two covers that make them such, and it isn't just the obvious. Only someone with a lack of imagination would say that one is a complete ripoff of the other.



  60. 260

    Re: alanlovesyew
    single.



  61. 261

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – shut up idiot, u still have that rip off icon lmfao!!! get a fucking CLUE



  62. 262

    Re: CruellaDeVil
    if you weren't such a judgmental person you would understand it's an ode to alexander mcqueen. his last fashion show had that makeup.. & she's even releasing it on the 1 year anniversary of his death. think before you look like an idiot criticizing something you don't know shit about.



  63. 263

    Re: M:
    she is original, dipshit…



  64. 264

    Re: xoxo_anonymous
    maybe if you actually understood her and knew about the "manifesto of little monsters" and "the lie for which we kill" you wouldn't be making dumb ass judgments. crazy, i know.



  65. 265

    why is the pic so heavily edited? i am sure she was not "born this way".



  66. 266

    Awesome cover… Love that it's black and white too.



  67. 267

    You Gaga fans are ridiculous. You are so hateful and patronizing in your comments when responding to people who disagree with you. Your opinion is not THE opinion, stop being so arrogant and realize that. Your "mother monster" preaches love and acceptance, so practice that buzzword "tolerance" you keep vomiting all over the place and learn to tolerate that some people do not like the cover. Don't call them stupid, or ignorant, because it simply doesn't fit the message you keep spreading but not practicing. Stop being such pretentious jerks, personal taste is PERSONAL. Some people don't care if it is a tribute to Alexander McQueen: accept it, move on, get over it, and stop calling them stupid for it, because it makes YOU look stupid for thinking your idea of art, and your interpretation of art is the final say on the subject. In other words, fucking grow up bitches.

    Perez, how hypocritical of you. Britney's cover, which was fairly natural, to the point you could see wrinkles on her forhead, was "too photoshopped" — but no such remark was made about this clearly (and heavily) retouched image.



  68. 268

    Re: Sam Haid – Ironic, you just criticized someone YOU don't know shit about, and also called them a "dipshit." You're not judgemental at all though, are you? Practice what you preach, bitch. Practice what you preach. I guess you were born a defensive asshole with a superiority complex?



  69. 269

    Re: YoungTaurus – "Art direction by Lady Gaga"



  70. 270

    I hate it!!!



  71. 271

    Honestly, I love her and her songs and her vids, but she looked her best in the Just Dance - Love Game era.



  72. 272

    Re: MisterMarkD
    "Practice what you preach, bitch.
    Well no one should have to think your rather patronizing advice is the end all of all advice on this topic, either, but perhaps you should heed your own. :)



  73. 273

    Re: ilovejoomayun – Why don't you shut up and stop replaying to me. I'm only going to say that because you are nothing to me so I wont waste my time on you because I don't like you and I only want to put my time on that I like.



  74. 274

    Re: Connor – Few things.

    I left my "opinion" open-ended, basically asking Gaga fans to stop forcing people to see things their way, and to let them have THEIR opinion. I didn't really give an opinion as much as I said let people have theirs. Not my problem if you're too stupid to realize that.

    Secondly, I'm not preaching kindness, or tolerance, or saying that my opinion is the opinion. I'm not begging, or forcing anyone to change their opinion about this cover based on what I think. So to tell me to practice what I'm preaching is rather stupid. If I'm preaching anything, it is that everyone has the right to an opinion, and by giving you mine, I'm practicing it.

    Oh, and I am not patronizing anyone. Funny how you tried to use the word I did in my comment, but failed at using it correctly. Swearing =/= patronizing. Duh.



  75. 275

    Re: MisterMarkD
    Actually if you were smarter than you're pretending to be, you would have just focused on the comment you made which I put in quotes, instead of going on some boring, meaningless rant. Sounds like you're the defensive one, my friend. Here you are condmening someone for calling someone else a dipshit yet you turn around and call him a bitch and an asshole. That was my point; maybe if you had an IQ above 98 you would have comprehended that. The fact that I used "patronizing" in my comment had nothing to do with the fact you used it, so you can quit pattng yourself on the back, since you obviously don't know the meaning of the word:
    Patronize: : to adopt an air of condescension toward : treat haughtily or coolly.
    The fact that you're trying hard to be clever in your attack is a bit endearing but so not convincing. Maybe one day in this lifetime you'll get better at it.

    "I left my "opinion" open-ended, basically asking Gaga fans to stop forcing people to see things their way, and to let them have THEIR opinion."
    *
    You did NO such thing:
    "stop being so arrogant and realize that."
    "practice that buzzword "tolerance" you keep vomiting all over the place and learn to tolerate that some people do not like the cover"
    "Don't call them stupid, or ignorant, because it simply doesn't fit the message you keep spreading but not practicing." (which , "ironically," you called me)
    "Stop being such pretentious jerks, personal taste is PERSONAL.
    "in other words, fucking grow up bitches."
    *
    I don't see anywhere where you ASKED anyone anything. All those phrases begin with commands, and I don't see how you figured it was your place to ORDER people around on how they should post on here. It's just a damn blog. If you're going to play a game of rhetoric with me, at least learn to play the game, and if you're going to call me stupid, at least convince me and everyone else on here that you have some bit of brains, although I don't think you're that qualified to discuss gray matter on here.



  77. 277

    Re: Connor

    1. You still did not use patronizing correctly.
    2. You replied to me–you're on the defensive.
    3. The guy I actually replied to was promoting the BTW message, which is why it was ironic that he called someone a "dipshit" and "judgmental." On the other hand, I never said I was promoting any sort of "be nice" message, or condemned someone else for being judgmental, I just pointed out the irony.
    4. Making up an IQ for me? Cute. That makes you look rational and sane. Not.
    5. Asking and commanding are pretty similar. You chose to use the word command because it is convenient for your argument. Regardless, I was not speaking to you.
    6. I'm trying to be clever? You're the one who defined a word but still used it incorrectly.
    7. *Yawn* You're boring. Nice rant, you said a lot without saying anything.



  78. 278

    Re: Mark Daunis
    1) But yet you still haven't proved HOW it wasn't used correctly other than same lame mathematical equation.
    2) My original response to you was ONE sentence. I don't see how you call that being defensive. You're the one who went on some nonsensical rant, to which AGAIN, I responded. Nice try.
    3) That's not the meaning of irony.
    4) Not? Where are we? Back in the 90s?
    5) They are similar but not the same. My argument was convenient because it WORKED. Anyone reading your lame post would have thought it was a page out of a rulebook for PH. You weren't talking to me, but you stated your opinion in a public forum, and left it open for anyone to respond. None of the people to whom you responded were talking to you either.
    6) Thanks for proving my point.
    7 Such a cliched retort. I'll give you points for trying, but I have to take some away for forgetting to log out of your FB page. Now everyone can see where you live, how old you are (18..I should have known), and can see that you look as dumb as you sound on here.



  79. 279

    Re: Connor – Also, it is ironic that he contradicted himself in his own sentence. I guess that is another word you don't know the meaning of.



  80. 280

    Re: Connor – Are you going to make an actual point anytime soon? If you're going to entertain me with a reply, do it with substance–Right now, you're just ranting about nothing. Saying I "look" dumb? Really? Because that has everything to do with the argument. Sweetheart, I logged in using FB on purpose because it is easier. The feature is there for a reason. If you want to imply that somehow I slipped up and I care that you can access publicly available information, you're going to have to accept that you're the one who is an idiot. Stop bringing up irrelevant things. You did not have any rebuttals, just a bunch of fluff.

    Again–you have not said anything thus far. No points for you. Try harder or stop trying.



  81. 281

    Re: Mark Daunis
    Yet you're the one whose original post was about Lady GaGa fans. How substantial was that? And what point do you think you're making? If you didn't get so haughty over a fuckin' general suggestion, you wouldn't be getting so worked up over an internet catfight. You're just trying to deflect everything I've said to you without actually disputing it. That's just a lame ploy that anyone can tell you doesn't work. The rest of your arguments, if you want to call them that, are just empty rhetoric and ad hominem attacks to make it look like you're winning. You say my saying you look dumb has nothing to do with the argument, but I already laid my case down for this argument about two posts ago, and I'm now just dealing with someone who just wants to have the last word. If you're going to talk shit, at least back it up properly or don't come at all. This is way too easy for me. I have better things to do with my time. Maybe now you can tell your friends in La. that you're a champion internet troll.



  82. 282

    Re: jordanjm – yeah sure, just like everything she does is not 'exactly' like madonna if you put them side by side… you're the one that's retarded.
