Lady Gaga’s New Fashion Column Annoys

LadyGagaVMagazine1 403x540 Lady Gagas New Fashion Column Annoys

Lady Gaga’s column for V magazine (above is the cover) debuted today. Thecut provides the link to the entire missive. Here is one excerpt from the column, which this month is titled “Piet Mondrian & Libary Cards”:

“Any writer or anyone for that matter, who doesn’t understand the last two sentences of this column should NEVER be writing or critiquing fashion or artists in publication. As someone who references and annotates her work vigilantly, I’m putting all of you on notice. I’ve done my homework, have you? Where are your library cards. Did they expire?”

Below are some of the early fashion writer responses to the column–folks are not happy.

“The New York Times has seen Lady Gaga’s debut fashion column for V magazine’s summer issue, and as it so happens, she’s is a veritable expert on…everything.” –Blackbook

“Gaga’s column for the high fashion glossy also debuted today. It’s really long. And defensive. And kinda pretentious.” –Fashionista

“Dare: Read Lady Gaga’s Entire V Column Without Rolling Your Eyes” –Headline from Thecut

As of late, Gaga has come off as very defensive about her music choices and now she expands that posture to her take on fashion. Granted, the level of criticism hurled daily at this woman is over the top, but someone should let her know that no one is insisting she be a music or fashion Einstein at the age of 25. She can have good instincts combined with a lusty intellectual curiosity and that’s enough.

Given her elite educational background (tuition per year at Sacred Heart High School where she attended is $35,600/year), it’s hard not to wonder if her I’m-better-informed-than-you-are attitude wasn’t fostered during her teens, when academic competition was no doubt super fierce with an abundance of “tracked students” vying for a very limited number of seats in Ivy colleges. If that’s the case, we can probably look forward to being schooled/scolded by Gaga on a monthly basis–can’t wait!
