aside from the attachment of the name that seems to be stirring up a rumble, it's a fairly decent, somewhat kitschy ad that would be ideal billboard-controversy material. of course she's going to use controversy as the driving force behind her image, this is the 2012, so i don't understand the surprising "she's a fame whore" reaction. durh.
well if she thought this will be coming out as an unexpected and scandalous, she's wrong. I expected something tacky like this from her and also everyone has seen her naked, so there's nothing to be scandallous here. So plain tacky and boring IMO.
Even though I am not a fan of Gaga in any way, I will admit that she has taken good fashion pictures before; this is NOT one of those. This looks cheap and tacky, and honestly, it looks like something fan-made I'd see on deviantART.

If this image had appeared in Italian Vogue, shot by Klein, everyone would have been all over it like a rash.
Even if this shot had appeared in Italian Vogue, it would still be quite tired.
And this comment kind of misses the point - this is supposed to be a perfume ad. I am a total perfume head, and this really gives be no desire at all to give this a sniff.
It does fit into the larger catalog of her work, though. It seems she is quite fond of taking something that was seen as edgy or controversial years ago, and re-introducing it and presenting it as still controversial or whatever. I don't know why I even hope that she does something fresh anymore.
It's really disappointing. But also the kind of "thing" one would expect Gaga to do. I think she's the "poor man's edgy" artist. For those who don't care about real edgy music, about really edgy artists and just want to keep their interest skin - deep. That's Gaga's territory. Skin - depth is where she fabricated her Fame. And where's she'll always be for me.
Some will argue saying that her music is really catchy, that one can immediately feel her songs pouring in one's ears. Yep, kinda like mosquitoes: you hear their buzz, but that doesn't make it music.
