Lady Gaga's naked magazine cover: the NSFW photo that has everyone talking

Look at them guns! Several websites have revealed this upcoming cover of Rolling Stone magazine that is bound to get lots of tongues wagging because it prominently features pop provocateur Lady Gaga nearly nude, sporting a cute blond bob, and holding a couple of guns over her boobs. Yowza!

    Ugh, it’s happened. I am completely sick of anything and everything Lady Gaga does. Stop showing up to baseball games in your underwear. No one likes it.

    • Steph

      dont generalize people’s opinions and just speak for your self

      • Barry

        She’s a no talent PIG!!

      • Tina from Texas

        Lady Gaga rocks my socks off. Plus I would like to have rough intercourse with her.

      • Brenda Barrett

        I really have no interest in anything Gaga does or says. However, I am a big fan of her music. You may dislike her, but your comment that she has no talent is completely without merit.

      • Brenda Barrett

        My comment was @Barry.

    • Sabrina

      I’m with Steph. 100%.

      • Playmate

        She is very talented. Unfortunately our society has become much hypersexualized and this seems necessary to compete. Look at that little ugly troll trollop Miely cyrus. Sex used to be naughty. Now it’s just boring.

    • Sabrina

      Um, the first Steph.

      • Jeff

        She is terribly ugly and is just copying every other half nude RS cover that has ever been made (remember the Christina Aguilera one). She’s not hot, she’s gross. And Entertainment Weekly, you have two headlines about GaGa and neither are relevant, what’s the deal?????

      • KC

        All of you broads are just jealous at the fact that she’s got the bod and flaunts it while you’re stuck at home counting your cellulite dimples.

      • aves

        I agree this is not newsworthy. Several other people have appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone wearing next to nothing in the past 10 years alone.

      • Krissy

        I think it looks great! The visuals are crisp and strong, the angles of the guns, her legs, etc. are compositionally compelling. She is an amazing artist, and there is a reason she was the first person to have her videos viewed over 1 Billion times!

      • Andre

        @Barry,

        Since when does no talent mean being an excellent songwriter, classical pianist, composer, vocalist with an amazing range, artist, etc.?

        If anyone is a pig it would be you for being ignorant and misinformed.

      • Brenda Barrett

        @Jeff. Gaga does not have a pretty face. I think most people would agree about that. So what? Should she crawl in a hole and die? Are you familiar with Wallace Simpson? Coco Chanel? People can be desired, respected and loved for qualities other than their looks, but evidently not by you.

      • Terry

        Actually Jeff, what’s funny is that not only is this barely news, but as you can see by the date of my post, EW has featured this for 2 days now. Most items drop off during the day as more news comes in. But this, TWO DAYS? It’s just an item about someone appearing half nude on a magazine cover. I might understand if we were talking about someone unexpected(Chelsea Clinton, Sandra Bullock, Betty White!!!). But really , how is this a continuing news story?

    • LADY GAGA 4EVER

      You guys are just jealous of her sheer talent, beauty and wealth. Go listen to your Kid Rock garbage. SHe will be making music and money for years to come.

      • Kid Rock

        (Silent tear)

      • Rod from Indy

        what talent? Just another pop tart that young people are silly enough to watch. Talent USED to be a requirement for stardom. Not any longer.

      • Sarah

        Kid Rock for the win.

      • L.T.

        TAlent oozing out of her pores! Firstly, She writes her own songs! Secondly, she plays the piano meaning composes the melodies as well! not like some people out there who latches onto songwriters and ‘INSPIRE’ them to write songs for them then tacks their OWN names to the songs!

      • jen

        are you 12??

    • Bob

      She’s kinda ugly but that’s a smokin body.

    • alicia

      there is a “web//site” named “black//white/Cupid” for dating or relationship, black or white singles can go there to find something sexy or beauty online !!!! :)

  • Lisa Simpson

    Could they have made the airbrushing and photoshopping more obvious?

    • Cat

      I thought the exact same thing!

      • ZBee1

        Me too. Nonetheless, I’m still a fan of Lady Gaga.

      • shadow09

        me too.

    • AliFran

      Me too! Someone out there is a wizard with the photoshop clone tool. She looks like a Vargas cartoon ( which, of course is an improvement on how she actually looks).

      • sv

        I think it’s supposed to look like a cartoon….ya know, there aren’t real bras made of guns either.

      • MultiPass

        LOL, SV.

    • Ron

      It’s not airbrush, she is deathly skinny and has a naturally cruvy ass.

    • jack

      my sentiments exactly!

    • hossain ali

      bad

  • Rob

    I don’t mind her music but she’s an odd little duck. From a hetero male perspective I have to say, ick.

    • Kyle

      From a gay male perspective, I have to say that even though I like some of her songs, sometimes she makes me say “ick” too.

      • Kim

        Don’t tell her that.

  • topazbean

    You know, way back in the heady days of Telephone, all of this still seemed technicolour and silly and wildly fun. In the space of about a month her antics have started to come off as cheap and cynical. I hope she sorts it out, stat. I was enjoying being a fan of her and her average music.

    • alex

      word.. i love her, but the bleak bummer of the alejandro video really put me off. all of her other videos are so visually fun you want to watch them over and over.. alejandro really soured me. i think also because it shouldn’t have been released as a single..Monster or Dance in the Dark are much more fun.

      • Michael

        I like her a lot, but the “Alejandro” video was altogether beyond disappointing; it was just gross. And that’s really too bad, because I like the song (and still do), but that video could have been a lot better, more storylike, instead of just (basically) pornographic. If “Monster” becomes a single (which I think it should), I hope it has a better video, more along the lines of the “Paparazzi” and “Bad Romance” videos. As for this cover… it’s very off-putting as well. C’mon Gaga, we know you’re talented, but sexy in the Britney sort of way, you are not.

      • SXiPPY

        I agree with Michael, if she thinks porno passed off as an “arty” music video is going to serve as a “love letter” to her gay fans, she’s misguided. I love her, I really do and in spite the myriad of haters within this forum, she is very much indeed talented. However, the “Alejandro” video came off as desperate to shock a la Madonna, just as her hairstyle on the cover here resembles Madonna circa ’92. I get the lifestyle she lives, showing up to games in her underwear…only if it’s hot though! I too dress in outrageous ways, but you have to draw the line somewhere so you have fresh tricks to wow the masses with. Anyway, if she really wants to shock people she should do a photoshoot wearing nothing but L.L. Bean. Truly scary!

      • Woot

        I honestly thought that there were some really beautiful images in the Alejandro video, and even though it wasn’t as clear plot wise, it did tackle some heavy issues. Gaga’s battle between religion and what she has come to believe was interesting. Though I do agree, of the 3 music videos from her “Fame Monster” Alejandro was the weakest

    • Sally in Chicago

      Yeah, I am a massive Gaga fan and it seems like she’s suddenly trying too hard to be provocative. But I’d still do her.

      • ZBee1

        OK Sally! Anyhow…yeah, I agree with the trying too hard. Very sad to see that because I think she’s a unique talent. I miss the more subtle yet provactaive Poker Face/Bad Romance girl she once was.

      • underfor5

        I third that motion.
        Gaga has talent to burn – even if I’m not usually a fan – but the whole soft porn look needs to end. It was gross to begin with and it’s becoming more and more cynical. I hope she realises she can rely on her creativity, voice and writing, rather than pushing her buttocks in every direction.

      • Agustin

        Couldn’t agree with you more… she’s trying too hard, and it’s getting annoying. I like her music a lot, but copying Madonna is not cool anymore

    • aves

      I hope she releases Monster next. Idk how that video could not be fun. I’ve liked all her videos up until Alejandro. She definitely tried to hard with that one.

  • PeterBilt

    Man this dude is awful looking

    • Dee Snider

      I wish people would stop confusing us…

    • Andy

      Wouldn’t it take an ugly to know another one.

  • Red

    I’ll second that “ugh.” A so-so voice and a couple of catchy tunes are enough to get a gal coronated as a superstar, as long as she’s seen as outrageous enough (and seen semi-nude often enough). It’s depressing.

  • steve

    What a harsh bunch! I think she’s talented and a nutjob, a fun combination :p

    • Chris

      Absolutely agreed. She’s phenomenally talented–blows all the competition out of the water. The photo troubles me, but I think that’s the intended effect.

      • Jade

        i agree with that. she is definately an individual to the end and i respect that about her.

  • UncleWalty

    I just want to see the Playboy shoot, so we can put this the rumor about her junk to bed.

    • Melisssa

      this!

      • etm

        What does it mean when people write “this” as a reply?

      • Melisssa

        That we agree with the one we’re replying! i guess so.. that’s why i used it though… =)

      • etm

        Thanks! That’s what I thought.

  • Peter

    Gaga is great. She writes killer tunes, is interesting, a bit strange, but that’s OK! As a hetero man, I think she’s a hot chick and my celebrity babe!

    • allly

      She actually doesnt write most of her song. Someone else does and she gets paid to sing them. FYI

      • Andy

        Actually she does write all her songs dipwad.

        If you look at any interview or song credits on her album you can see she co-produces and writes all her work.

  • Adam

    Terrible music, amazing butt.

    • Jade

      how can you say her music is terrible when she’s above every major pop artist out right now.

      • Cale

        Well… Katy Perry’s new song is better than anything she has ever come up with. And Kanye West is in another league than Gaga is as far as pop music goes. And as far as music goes there have been at least 30 albums released this year that are better than hers. you can start with Joanna Newsome and Ariel Pink, and keep going on down the list. As far as music goes. She isn’t very good at all. she’s actually kind of awful. But Bad Romance is a jam!!

      • dinwv

        Jesus Farking Christ, Kanye West??!!?? Gaga has more talent in her kinda small left tit than 10 farkin Kanyes!!!! Just how Kanye is anything other than a burger slinger is still one of the unsolved mysteries of the world.

      • Melisssa

        Joanna Newsom *_____*

        she rules!

      • Brenda Barrett

        @dinwv — I second that!

  • UGH

    Pfft. That’s nothing. Jennifer Aniston and Laetia Casta had far more revealing covers.
    I actually like Gaga, but she’s becoming too much of an attention whore recently with her showing up to her sister’s graduation (it should’ve been her sister’s moment, not her’s) and this Yankee’s fiasco.

    • Melisssa

      Jennifer Aniston cover = hot!

  • Anon

    Why does her butt look like a cartoon drawing? That has to be the worst photoshop job ever.

    • Juneau

      Would you prefer to see the unphotoshopped version of her butt? I wouldn’t.

      • Tarc

        I think a lot of people would rather see no photoshopping of people, period.

    • Rick

      Cartoon drawing?
      I’d eat a cheeseburger off of that.

  • Jay

    I cant beleive people are making a bif deal over this!!
    This is so… NOT shocking. Especially from Ga Ga. I’ve seen far worse on mag covers.

    People are so uptight anymore, its gotten to the point of insanity.

    Nothing to see here, move along people

  • Miss Talk

    Okay seriously, this cover is awful.
    I don’t care so much about the butt or anything but from my humble artistic point of view, the cover looks super cheap. RS can do wayyy better.

    • etm

      I know. I remember when their covers were awesome. Now every cover is the artist just standing there in front of a plain white background.

      • Rainier Cherry

        @etm – their covers were awesome when RS was awesome. It’s disgusting that a magazine that once named London Calling the best album of all time has become such a sellout that they put no talent hacks like Lady Gaga and the Jonas Brothers on the cover just to get the coveted 12 year old demographic.

      • Juneau

        Yeah – kind of like EW covers these days.

      • Andy

        @Rainer

        Ew please never use the Jonas Brothers and Lady Gaga in the same sentence.

        Lady Gaga most certainly blows them out of the water in the talent department. And while they were standing there looking like homo’s in there cover she’s doing it in heel-less heels and a gun bra.

      • Aly

        I think Andy’s a troll. Not much of a fan if he’s expressing homophobic sentiments.

      • Stephanie

        @Rainer
        I thought they said Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was the best of all time. Whatever, I prefer London Calling by far.

        About the picture….yeah, not that shocking. Besides, it’s only a good picture from the neck down.

      • Andy

        @Aly oh shut up everyone with a head on their shoulders know that the Jonas Brothers appear homosexual. Nothing against gays but The Jonas Brothers are just “ugh”

    • Niix Starkyller

      Are those fake guns? My word! Can’t we photograph real things anymore? I mean, the model (whoever she is) doesn’t even have a handle to hold — she’s gripping the magazine.
      (BTW — who is that model? I think I’ve seen her somewhere else before.)

  • K

    All the criticism heaped on Gaga is the same stuff people said about Madonna back in the day. I always thought Britney or Christina would be the next Madonna, but Lady Gaga proved me wrong.

    • Jade

      Christin and Brittney dont have nothing on GAGA. she writes her own music and even some for britney and christina. she is the originator. like madonna was in her day.

      • Robbyrob

        Jade,

        Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Madonna is still enjoying her day. She’s not retired or slowing down. Madonna is almost 52 and her last tour (Sticky and Sweet) outgrossed her previous tour (Confessions) to still make her the biggest female tour earner. Not bad, eh? Lets see if Gaga can muster that with over 25 years in the biz. Sure, radio isn’t playing Madonna’s newer material but show me an artist over 40 who is being played. Madonna continues to set her own rules at her own pace. Madonna just had MTV…Gaga has YouTube…you do the math. Madonna was able to sustain a career that can put her alongside Elvis and The Beatles. Alejandro was done before…sure Ace of Base, but I heard La Isla Bonita. So, please don’t consider Madonna a has-been of any kind. Your comment was quite ageist by the way….which Madonna was busy fighting when she turned 30! Let’s see if Gaga can do the same.

      • thin

        Wow, way to take that the wrong way and run with it. Nobody said anything about Madonna being a has-been or that she’s over.

      • thin

        Okay, I re-read that, and I guess I get where you’re coming from, but I don’t really think that’s what Jade intended. The insults were meant for Christina and Britney, not Madonna.

      • Jane

        I agree with RobbyRob. Madonna’s tour are massive and she still has decent sales on her albums. GaGa has jumped the shark. She writes funny poppy songs, but needs to stop the antics and stick to performance art on stage. She’s acting like a Madonna wannabe lately.
