GaGa Does Self-Portrait For The Advocate

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLady GaGaLGBT


She looks fierce!

Lady GaGa took her first self-portrait for the cover of The Advocate's August issue while on tour in Germany and we have to say, she looks amazing.

In the magazine article, GaGa had a few choice words for her skeptics who say that she uses the gay community to sell her records.

"[It's] probably one of the most ridiculous statements anyone can make about me,” Gaga states with a hint of frustration in her voice. I would say the top thing I think about every single day of my life, other than my fans, loving the music, and my family being healthy, is social justice and equality.

Rumors, shots at me as a human being, that’s what comes with the territory of being a musician and being someone who is a public figure. I care only about what I can change. What can I push forward? How can I be a part of the fight for modern social issues?"

She also goes into detail about her meeting with top Target executives who wanted to sell a special edition CD of Born This Way. After it was revealed that the company's corporate PAC made campaign contributions to support antigay candidate Tom Emmer for governor of Minnesota, GaGa told them, "You're either going to try and change or you're not." When they didn't meet her standards, she pulled out of the deal.

And rightfully so.

GaGa has been a force in the LGBT community and she will always remain an inspiration with her constant support of change.

And the cover is beautiful too. Well done, Mother Monster.

    Buahahaha we all know she uses the gays i count myself in there to buy her stuff and follow her. She doesnt have to bring the gay card every time she sees things falling and to get her good ratings sell records bring it out
    Btw when i say i count myself i dont mean i buy her stuff but im gay and i see her fake shtick to get gay people to buy her stuff.

  2. 2

    if she was a true diva like the rest of her peers she would have had all the gays following her without her always bringing out that gay card. Look at the rest of the true divas out there hardly mention the gays and we are drooling over them. So yes gaga you use the gay community for sells

    Isn't a self portrait when you actually PAINT a picture of yourself, not just take a picture of yourself? LOL!

  5. 5

    She is not a "force"..she is just annoying and shoves it down peoples throats.. and target was well known how they were before she ever signed with them.. so how the fuck can she expect them to change their views just because of her cd?? She needs to get the fuck over herself -_-.. and wtf does she mean "one of the most ridiculous statements said about me"?? Oh what were the other ones? BTW sounding like Madonna's Express Yourself? Or your imagine and style being taken right out of other artists? Yeah so ridiculous right? {rolls eyes}

  6. 6

    Let me think again.Fierce? She sounds like 50-year-old grandma who lost her puppy.lol. Madonna is back, bitch.so, get out and don't ever come again.

  7. 7

    She brings up the gays more because she wants to fight the bigotry and the still existent discrimination…to bring AWARENESS…only people with warped minds would say "she is using the gay community"…GAGA does so much for so many different people and charities and people attempt to tear her down with invalid accusations….Gaga has a different approach to most things and people that cannot handle it just attempt to be critical and make unjust accusations…MIllions "get her" and support her 100%…MANY gays (and straights) DO NOT think she is "using"…just the people that need to pick her apart because she is REAL and successful and talented and unique AND someone who pushes buttons that SOME do not want pushed….get over it whiners!!! Love you GAGA!

    bitch is using the gay community to sell her records! although i think that homosexuality is a sin and fucking WRONG, i pity you gay people because your "ambassador" is a hypocrit.

  9. 9

    Re: sanfran1 – when you open your eyes and see what she is and yes USING is a good word for what she does to the gay community but when you do open your eyes Come back to us and nobody is being a whiner.

    One thing is to do and sure bring it up for what you say "awareness" and another is to constantly bring it up just for getting attention or i should say attention whore

    Its like saying oh i need to go help a shelter ok good and another is to be like i need a mag cover every day for the rest of the year talking about it OH I WENT TO A SHELTER HEY GUYS IM SUCH PERSON I WENT TO A SHELTER OH HEY SHELTER PEOPLE IM HELPING U GUYS OUT OH HEY SHELTER PEOPLE THIS AND THAT i mean we get it you went and helped good for you dont shove it down our throats.

    Her blossoming international career is a learning process for her, too. She'll learn as she goes along how to more closely monitor and manage her public image so that others don't hija ck what she does to further their own agendas sometimes at her expense. She's friendly and open, and is willing to lend herself to anything that seems like a good cause. The focus needs to be on what she does as an artist, and not too much of herself to everything else unless its been thoroughly vetted. She's a musician first and foremost, and overexposure from things not related to music could hurt her sales.

  13. 13

    She kinda looks like Amy Winehouse in this photo. Nice to see her keep her clothes on for a change.

  14. 14

    Remember how celebrities were all "green" in 2005. Now they all are "pro-gay" activist. They are just using this issue because it is the hot topic. At least this time it doesn't require lifestyle changes.

    No stereotypes do not just because someone likes the same sex need not be effeminate, some are normal, but others criticize and think that everyone is well.

  17. 17

    nose job

    nose job

    really fugly without a nose job

    If THAT doesn't turn guys gay, nothing will.

  19. 19

    god she looks ridiculous

  20. 20

    Fake ass bitch!!

  21. 21

    Well considering most of her imagery reinforces gay stereotypes and she uses terms like 'the gays' implying they are just one big unit rather than individuals, I'd say that is one big pile of horse shit.

  22. 22

    gorgeous … i wish i had her skin.

  23. 23

    Of course she profits from the Gaga community. Why is she sheepish about admitting it? She should be more sheepish about all the other cheap marketing ploys she uses instead of letting her music stand for itself. You know, stuff like selling her CDs for 99c and wearing a meat dress.

  24. 24

    That is not a self-portrait fyi… it has to be a painting of ones-self.. tool…

  25. 25

    Funny how she's supposedly all about equality and against discrimination and hate and goes on about pulling her album from Target because of the contributions they've made, yet the person who designs most of her clothing is very verbal about hating fat people and refuses to work with them. Looks like she's fine with discrimination and people putting down others, as long as it's not being done to gays, because she does use the gay community to sell her albums. That's overly obvious and has been all along. Everything out of her mouth is a lie and I think more and more people are realizing that. Why doesn't she address the concerns about the bracelets for Japan?

    exposing the fraud for what she is!

  27. 27

    @POPSCIDICTATOR1 - Anyone could have skin like that, all you need is a photo editing program. It's obvious it was edited to hide her flaws and make her not look so haggard.

  28. 28

    Poor thing is just so homely.

  29. 29

    Well done, Mother Monster.

    Lady Gaga is the biggest proof that the human race stings, Why do we need someone telling us we are beautiful? She's hiding from herself, copying everybody, a brave person does not need that makeup, our those dresses. She's using everybody.


  31. csgb says – reply to this


    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WE CAN KNOCK HER DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. 32

    Re: ickynicky – If Gaga really is "born this way" and "love and acceptance" and whatnot, she'll make NF apologize. But I won't hold my breath.

  33. 33

    Funny how retarded she is not to admit she used gays to sell her albums.

  34. 34

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR1 – Funny how u rip off others' avatar and name to satisfy yourself like your ugly caca.

  35. 35

    Fierce? Are u blind perez?

  36. 36

    lol at people thinking self-portrait has to be a painting! you guys have to be really ignorant !….

  37. 37

    Re: CandyBeast – we don't want your pitty. Go hang with Michell Bachmann and her obviously gay huzzband. We want Gaga, Liza, and Cyndi. Not you, yukk!

  38. 38

    Oh god..I don't even wanna read this, let me guess, is she talking about "the gays" again???

  39. 39

    Re: wiseguy – so according to you just because someone thinks lady gaga is full of shit and a tool means their anti-gay? explain this logic?

    Re: samanthapour – stfu ;D

  43. 43

    If she took this picture herself, then it's a self-portrait. It doesn't have to be a painting to be a self-portrait.

  44. 44

    stupid internet sorry for repeats >

  45. 45

    Alright already i get the dumb fucking self-portrait shit.. but it's mostly thought of as a painting.. highly doubt the bitch took of herself anyway so stfu about it already x{

  46. 46

    Also, what's up with her mole? It's never in the same place or on the same side of her face in any photo.

  47. 47

    Re: Rohan – no. im sorry, its not. thats a self portrait painting. a self portrait is just a picture of ones self. ha ha. sorry. you are wrong.

  48. 48

    despite the fact that i agree with most of the dislike for her and i don't think she's a very attractive woman she does have a wonderful eyeshape and that's the only real compliment i can say about her cover .

  49. 49

    Re: J-Doll – Just so you know, my last comment was not directed at you.

  50. 50

    OMG, she so UNORIGINAL. I'm sick of her big ass ego thinking that she rules the world with her unique style and personality when she's repeating things that people have already accomplished, worn, sung, etc.

    Gaga, take a break and figure out what train you should hop on next…make sure it's at least 10,000 miles away from the US.

  51. 51

    Hope she's gone after her second album. I just can't stand this hypocrite woman anymore. She's become an annoying person to me.Lying, ripping off other artists and user.Hope she flopped and take her crappy music with her.

  52. 52

    She has lost it all. Now, she cannot shock people anymore with her alien-like clothes.People are becoming tired of her.Overexposed and ripping off others. She has turned herself into some kind of joke

  53. 53

    Re: J-Doll – wrong, notaku, a self portrait can be a photo too, go back to your mom's basement to beat the meat to some hentai

    fierce? beautiful?
    you definitely have problems with your eyes. wear your glasses!
    this looks like an advertisement for a retired trannys magazin and must be the ugliest cover i`ve ever seen.

  55. 55

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl – The fact that you keep bringing up the dumb basement comment is yo9ur way of making yourself feel better about you leaving in your moms.. i work and pay for my big house.. sorry you can't say the same xD.. and dumbass learn to read ..i corrected myself.. and told you all to stfu.. and your one to talk about hentai with that dumbass avatar of yours.. females don't have interest in hentai like you pervs.. now "go back to your moms basement" off to the next post little kid ;D

    WOW,I've never met such a bunch of CYNICAL ASSHOLES in my life! Recognizing your fan base is not the same as playing the gay card idiots. YOu all need to grow up and get some life experience, get off your computers and read the New York Times…. hell, even read People magazine if you don't like to read, which I assume most of you don't.

  58. 58

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl – p.s. why you so obsessed with me? you reply and talk about basements and anime all the time.. creepy nerd..ew

  59. 59

  60. 60

    Poor Grandma Munster. 11 million fake and duplicate accounts strong and the kike nosed twat cleaner is still flopping all over the place and looking more and more desperate and looking uglier (if that's possible!!). Love seeing the thief try harder and harder. It would be sad if it wasn't so mother fucking funny!! Paws up, Little Turds!!

  65. 65

    The fact is…all the deeply thought out time it takes to write mean, hateful comments indicates to me some of you subconsciously may actually kinda like her. One just doesn't spend good time wasting their energy pondering and thinking of things to say…good or bad, if they don't hold some kind of obsession with the object of their words. Get mad if you want, but it is what it is if you think about it.

  66. 66

    I can't wait to read this. Love the cover pic as well , which reminds me of Paris for some reason.

  67. 67

    If some people say Lady GAGA is using the LGBT to buy her music…

    I say artists who shows hetero sex/love upon music and music video are using the Heterosexual to buy their music…

    LGBT are the minorities
    Is it a wise business choice to use
    the minority of the society..?
    I guess not :)

  68. 68

    Eh this is not her best look.. id be interested in her attempting to try something natural..lmao never gonna happen.

    Re: marieclare89 – I simply ask you… which of your favorite pop stars do you consider original?
