Lady Gaga & Terry Richardson Team Up for New Book

Grand Central Publishing will publish a “remarkable collaboration” between photographer Terry Richardson and Lady Gaga. Coming out November 22, Lady Gaga will feature 350 photographs by Richardson and an introduction by Lady Gaga (pictured, via).

Working in association with Atom Factory, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment negotiated the deal with publisher Jamie Raab. The publisher billed the book as a “visual dialogue” between the pop star and the photographer–Richardson has snapped 100,000 images of Gaga.

Here’s more from the release: “the book will showcase over 350 color and black and white photographs taken during the 10 month period in which Richardson followed Lady Gaga and had complete access to her everyday life, with nothing being off limits. Beginning with Lollapalooza in August 2010 to the February 2011 Grammy Awards which had 26.66 million viewers, (the highest viewership in over a decade) to the final shows of her Monster Ball tour which averaged an attendance of 90,000 people each day, Richardson brilliantly captures the intimate, random, behind-the-scenes moments of Lady Gaga in both her professional and personal life.”

Luc Carl Lands Book Deal for The Drunk Diet

Musician, party promoter, and bar manager c Carl has inked a book deal with St. Martin’s Press for a book about how he lost weight while drinking heavily.

Executive editor Kathy Huck acquired the book, and it is set for a 2012 release. Carl has made headlines for the last few months as he reportedly rekindled his relationship with his girlfriend, Lady Gaga. He keeps a Twitter account with nearly 20,000 followers.

Here’s more about the book: “The Drunk Diet is Lüc’s groundbreaking memoir about how he was able to drop the weight, fine-tune his body, and still party every single night of the week … The Drunk Diet is much more than a lame series of ‘do this, don’t do that’ tips—it’s an awe-inspiring tale of an ordinary rock ‘n roll guy who managed to transform a lifestyle based around whiskey and 5:00 AM cheeseburgers into a wildly successful fitness regime.”

Sarah Palin Sequel Comic Coming

After the company’s first Sarah Palin biographical comic sold out, Blue Water Productions will release a sequel entitled Female Force: Sarah Palin, Act 2. The comic will follow Palin’s life after the 2008 election and “the threat that she might pose to both Democrats and mainstream Republicans.”

Written by Dan Rafter and drawn by Nathan Carson, the comic will be released in December. It will sell for $3.99. Pop artist Lady Gaga has also received the Blue Water comic book treatment.

The press release revealed one scene from the comic: “[The] comic references the speech in which Palin had jotted notes on her palm. Her critics savaged her. But Palin, much like Ronald Reagan did throughout his political career, used humor to turn a potential mistake into a victory when she showed up at a later speech with the words ‘Hi, Mom’ written on her palm.” (Via Forbes)
