Lady Gaga is Now a News Editor

First Lady Gaga got a monthly column gig with V magazine. But that wasn’t enough for the fame monster! Now she will serve as global guest editor-in-chief for all May 17 editions of Metro, a free subway news daily. She will edit Metro’s editions in 20 countries from the London office of Metro World News, Metro’s central news desk.

New York Observer reports that in addition to editing/writing a feature, she will comment on stories throughout the issue and contribute sidebars.

As part of the global guest editorship, Metro is also running a contest where one reader will be chosen as Lady Gaga’s editorial assistant. Admit it, you’re interested.
