Vogue to Feature Lady Gaga on Cover of September Issue

In March of 2011, Vogue put a sort-of-weird photo of the sort-of-weird Lady Gaga on its cover, and it became one if its highest selling issues of the year.

WWD reports that Vogue liked the numbers Gaga generated, so it’s going with her again, this time for the vital September issue. Apparently Gaga has already been photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Any guesses as to what the cover will look like? You probably can’t tell, but we’re not exactly fashion divas here at FishbowlNY, so we really have no idea. How about Gaga on a surf board? Or maybe she could wear one of those great Tweety Bird t-shirts, with something sassy like “Blondes Have More Fun” written on it.

No one steal that idea.

Women Occupy Seven out of The Top 10 Spots in Most Powerful List

Forbes’Most Powerful Celebrity” list is jam packed with women. In fact, women take seven out of the top 10 spots in the magazine’s report, which ranks people according to earnings and fame. Jennifer Lopez takes the number one spot and Oprah — the highest ranking media mogul on the list — is runner-up. Other women rounding out the top 10 include Rihanna (4), Lady Gaga (5), Britney Spears (6), Kim Kardashian (7) and Katy Perry (8).

We’ve seen this “female focused” trend already, when Time’s annual Time 100 list featured 38 women, more than ever before. Does this mean that 2012 is the year of the woman? Are we even allowed to write that considering Forbes counts Kardashian as “powerful?”

Probably not.

Perez Hilton Fronts Another Fashion Disaster

Mario Lavandeira, who makes a good part of his Perez Hilton living ridiculing celebrities, is often caught in the same sort of crossfire. Last fall for example, he placed second on Out magazine’s list of worst dressed gay men, behind Boy George.

Intentionally or not, Hilton added to this wretched reputation when he attended the 45th anniversary bash for The Advocate sporting a Juicy Couture jacket, Longchamp bag, Loudmouth Golf pants and Jeremy Scott shoes. After he shared the photo at right on his site, readers were not amused:

Chrstn7: Sorry Perez but that outfit is a hot mess!! You are trying to be like Lady Gaga by putting on crazy outfits to make a statement but it’s only going to put you on the worst dressed lists.

Alliestp: Do you always have to look like you got dressed in a dumpster?

Vanity Fair’s Naked Lady Gaga Drawing Fetches $30,000

Remember that Lady Gaga Vanity Fair auction we told you about earlier this month? Well it’s over, and the grand prize — a drawing of a naked Gaga by Tony Bennett — fetched a whopping $30,000.

Before you’re all, “wow someone is a creeper,” remember, all the benefits went to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and Bennett’s Exploring The Arts charities.

The auction was a boon for the foundations; the total donation from the Vanity Fair pieces was $46,261.

Your Dream to Own a Drawing of Lady Gaga Naked Can Come True

(Via Vanity Fair)

If you’re a bit obsessive about your Lady Gaga fandom, and loved her spread in the January issue of Vanity Fair, you now have a chance to own some memorabilia. From today until Monday, December 19, you can bid on eBay for items from the Vanity Fair cover shoot, including:

  • The original charcoal drawing of a naked Lady Gaga by Tony Bennett, signed by Bennett
  • Fancy accessories that were worn by Gaga during the shoot
  • A print of the January Vanity Fair cover, signed by Annie Leibovitz
  • A poster-sized edition of the cover, signed by Gaga

There’s more if you’re interested and the proceeds from the auction go to Bennett and Gaga’s charities. But we should say that the bidding for the drawing of Gaga starts at $5,000, so please consult with your family accountant (wife) before proceeding. Chances are she’ll have something to say about the price and/or the desire to own a drawing of Gaga in her birthday suit.

Perez Hilton Talks to The Guardian

With Lady Gaga set to kick off the four-part ITV2 series Perez Hilton: Superfan this Wednesday, the Internet’s original celebrity gossiper has been doing some transatlantic PR.

It’s evident from the lede of John Plunkett‘s article in The Guardian that the reporter is catering to a more erudite British audience. FishbowlLA can’t imagine too many American daily newspaper profile pieces that would begin like this:

Perez Hilton makes for an unlikely Saul on the road to Damascus.

Lady Gaga Graces Cover of Latest Vanity Fair

Anyone sick of Lady Gaga yet? Yes? Well, too bad. She’s not going anywhere. Her latest stop is on the cover of the January Vanity Fair, and inside the magazine she talks about a variety of things.

Gaga tells Contributing Editor Lisa Robinson that her fame has cost her an identity, explaining, “When I’m onstage, I’m so giving and so open and myself. And when the spotlight goes off, I don’t know quite what to do with myself.”

She also says that her passion for gay rights is inexhaustible and that her romantic relationships tend to end terribly.

Weird Al Ready to Show Harold Camping How It’s Done

The Rapture never came May 21. Nor on Harold Camping‘s revised date of October 21. But switch around those numerals and swap out one weird guy for another, and you’ve got the next best thing for Angelenos–Weird Al Yankovic‘s “Alpocalypse” tour performance at the Pantages Theatre this Saturday, November 12.

One big difference between Harold’s Rapture and Al’s ‘Pocalypse is the fact that in the latter case, children under five will not be admitted. From the show’s promotional blurb:

Weird Al’s first full-length studio album in nearly five years debuted at No. 9 on the U.S. album charts, marking the highest-charting album of his storied career. Alpocalypse features the much-talked-about Lady Gaga parody “Perform This Way” as well as parodies of hits by Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, T.I. and B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars. Al and his long-time bandmates were aided and abetted in the recording studio by guest appearances from Taylor Hanson and The Doors’ Ray Manzarek.

FishbowlLA Contest Winners Hang with A-List Immortals

Exactly a week after celebrating the third-year anniversary of a wedding arranged just days before the passing of Prop 8, LA residents Travis and Ian-Mathew attended the November 7 Nokia Theatre premiere and rooftop after-party for the new historical action drama Immortals. They were there as winners of a contest sponsored by this blog. So… how was it?

“I’ve been to many screenings before but never a premiere,” Travis tells FishbowlLA via email. “What a treat. The after-party was even better than I could have hoped for. I thought maybe the stars would be in a roped off VIP area but they were basically hanging around their tables, so that anyone could walk up to them.”

“I told director Tarsem Singh that The Fall was one of my favourite movies,” he continues. “He was very excited that I even knew that film and said, ‘Anyone who is a fan of that movie is a friend of mine!’ We met all the main stars– Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz… All of them were SUPER nice!!”

Simplistic Lady Gaga Featured on Harper’s Bazaar

This is the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar, featuring Lady Gaga. She looks so different, right? No crazy hats, no ugly dress and no egg. And from first glance, it seems like she’s not even wearing any makeup!

But because you come to us for hard hitting investigative reporting, FishbowlNY dug deeper. Brace yourselves dear readers, for the truth will probably hurt. On the magazine’s website where a collection of Gaga’s photos appear, we found this:

To get Lady Gaga’s no-makeup look, try Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation ($29.15), Prep + Prime Highlighter ($23), Brow Gel ($15) and Prep + Prime Lash ($15).

Sigh.
