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.
