Two years ago, I thought I had said everything I wanted to say about Gaga (“listening to Lady Gaga is like taking photographs blind: you’re told there’s something phenomenal on the other side, but you can’t really see it”) but these covers are just too ridiculously relevant.
At first glance, Gaga — with her straight corn silk hair — instantly gave me a Britney in her heyday vibe. Then I I caught a whiff of Rihanna and Beyonce and Katy Perry. Really Gaga? I guess she wasn’t kidding when she told WWD that she’s “every icon.”
The Fierce Lioness: Beyonce
Lady Gaga: “Big hair, don’t care.”
Bangin’ Blonde: Britney Spears
Lady Gaga: “What? You thought I was going to do the shaved head look?”
Sleek Siren: Rihanna
Lady Gaga: “I also don’t have a problem taking my clothes off.”
Rebel without a Cause: Katy Perry
Lady Gaga: “Look, I can be angry-cute with some side boob too.”
BOY TOYS TALK BACK: Is this a coincidence or did Gaga really aim to emulate this century’s hottest female pop stars?
