Lady Gaga's naked 'Vanity Fair' cover: Does she expose too much?

Another day, another naked Lady Gaga magazine cover. The pop star is once again sans clothing, this time on the latest issue of Vanity Fair, following skin-baring shoots with Rolling Stone, Out, and Q…and those are just the ones we can remember!

So is the shock value diminished by all of the previous nude covers? Or is Gaga still able to be provocative? I’m not sure. But I do think it’s a good shot of her and has a fun, bohemian quality to it that she hasn’t shown before.

If the photo doesn’t shock or surprise, then at least Gaga is still able to grab attention through her words. Discussing drug use to Vanity Fair, Gaga says, “I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way. I don’t want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great. It’s in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster.”

But my favorite quote is in regards to sex and it is pure loony, lovable Gaga: “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.” Genius.

What do you think about Gaga’s Vanity Fair cover, Music Mix-ers? Too much nudity? Or is she still shocking you?

    She’s crossed into the Tyson Zone: nothing she does ever shocks anyone anymore. It’s expected.

    • jammy

      Um…well is she or isn’t he/she? To be or not to be/he/she ..that is the question..the cover would end that speculation

    • LOL

      It’s a Gaga world. We just live in it.

      • Taniqua the ghetto

        LOL @ LOL’s Comment!!

    • sally

      I’m shocked that a celebrity does drugs… I’ve never heard of such a thing.

  • Kate

    Isn’t her 15 minutes up yet?

    • d15p

      shes here to stay kate;)

  • Bee

    that is NOT an attractive picture.


      Yes it is!

    • Jennifer Kate

      That’s because she’s not attractive.

    • Tim

      She’s not terribly photogenic.

    • Ethan

      I actually think she looks quite beautiful in it, and it gets the image she was going for.

  • Ceballos

    I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again:

    The most shocking/avant garde thing Lady Gaga could do at this point is show up at an event/pose for a magazine cover with no makeup and wearing a plain white tee and jeans.

    • bella

      not even to go that far just to turn up with normal makeup and a beautiful classic plain dress would be amazing, and much more shocking she’ss proberly do it on her first reinvention

  • SirLizard

    Expose too much!? What a stupid question. You can’t see anything. I think that most people would see this magazine at the news stand and not even realize that she isn’t wearing anything.

    • lauren

      exactly. i saw this cover this morning and didn’t even notice she was naked. this article is a stretch

    • Ceballos

      To be fair, I didn’t read the headline “Does she expose too much” to mean regarding this particular cover. (It’s CLEARLY one of the more toned-down Lady GaGa pics you’ll find anywhere.)

      I took it (and the rest of this item) to mean does she generally expose herself so much that it hardly makes a blip on the radar.

    • d15p

      completly agree sirlizard

  • darclyte

    You can’t see anything, so it’s not really “nude” is it? She’s still covered by something (in this case hair.) In this latest one, behind all that hair she could easily be wearing a top that matches her skin tone. Beyond all that, we’ve seen it all before from other cover models.

  • i’m more concerned about her drug use than her *yawn* nudity. not a fan of her music but i hope she gets that under control. she said she does coke “a few times a year”…yeah, okay…which is why she’s become a skeleton since she’s gotten famous?

    • aves

      Yeah she seems pretty strung out lately. But in her defense she has toured like non-stop for the past year so that could have contributed to her weight loss.

  • Cassidy

    Very beautiful and political. I love the fact she could care less about pleasing men.

    • daisyj

      You know, I would find that a lot easier to buy from her if she didn’t keep doing photo shoots naked/trussed up like a bondage doll. Because those aren’t exactly the sort of images straight men are known to dislike.

      • mtraptor

        I don’t know that many straight men who are into Lady Gaga.

    • u

      I think she tries too hard to prove that she’s a feminist. If you’re worried about someone taking your creativity through your p*ssy, chances are you’re sleeping with the wrong type of people. Ask Amy Winehouse.

  • pop

    those lashes make her look like donatela versace or janice from the muppets (who i think HAD to be modeled after donatela)

    • tennisfan

      for suuurely

    • Martin

      Uh, no. You need to expand your pop culture references. The Muppets were around LONG BEFORE Donatela Versace. Janice the Muppet was modeled after Mary Travers from Peter, Paul and Mary.

      • $Donnelle$

        Lookz like Marty here knows TOO MUCH about the muppets…Haha, AM I RIGHT? GIMME FIVE!

  • LordyNYC

    People are already numb with anything that GAGA does. I don’t think she look beautiful on this cover at all. She is stealing Daphne Guinness looks. She seems to make up stories to get people talking about her. Eventually people will get tired of all the theatrical costumes and will move on.

  • couchgrouch

    yeah, she exposes she’s more about clothes(or lack thereof) than music.

  • aves

    oh gaga’s naked again. yawn. that’s a fun quote though.

  • timelord

    her music is good . but she is ugly .period

  • Lady G

    Hey everybody, look at me. I’m getting attention because of something else besides my music again.

    • nikta

      i like your music n ur weird style’s

  • JPX

    I hate it when people discuss “nude covers” when the reality is that there is nothing “nude” about it. She is completely covered from head to toe – I see more walking along the beach. Let me know when we have a “full frontal” cover. Also, is anyone else sick fo Gaga yet? We get it, you’re outrageous.
