lady gaga bares all for candy: subverting female pubic hair taboos

Ally Van Schilt
2 comments

Stefani Germanotta, otherwise known as Lady Gaga, has never been shy of turning heads through her individual brand of provocation. In the past, she has worn a dress made entirely of meat, arrived at awards shows in giant eggs and worn shoes with heels so high her ability to walk has been compromised. In her…

Last week, Lady Gaga was presented with a Glamour Women of the Year award. The awards are designed to showcase the most inspiring and influential women each year. But rather than an acceptance speech, Gaga made a critique of the heavy photoshopping and airbrushing of her photos. Gaga featured on the front cover of Glamour’s…

Lady Gaga’s bizarre burqa song is not ‘empowering’. No, really.

Zoya J. Patel

In case we weren’t convinced yet that she’s the queen of controversy, a recently leaked song from Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album, ARTPOP, has the pop singer regaling us with half-formed, ignorant lyrics about the burqa. The song, either entitled ‘Aura’, or ‘Burqa’, includes the lyrics ‘I’m not a wandering slave I am a woman of…

we’re all going gaga

Little monsters across Australia are screaming Gaga, as the lady herself tours the country and treats fans to thrills, spills and everything in between. Whether you love or hate her, everyone has an opinion about the lady who is breaking all the rules of normality. A singer, film maker, fashion diva, gay activist, and number…

sartorial musings : fashion & feelings

lip magazine
One comment

Over the past year or so I have been slowly rediscovering my love of fashion, and in the process, finding out just how much it is linked to my self-esteem and confidence. Last year I was staying home a lot, wearing a lot of food-stained tracksuits, and feeling a little shitty about the world in…

album review: lady gaga, born this way

Christine Campbell
No comments

On May 23, 2011, the world changed. Lady Gaga released her much-anticipated second studio album, Born This Way. As you all probably recall, my love for Gaga runs deep. I had written at the end of that piece that I hoped her sound would reflect a change towards more piano-driven rock-and-roll, like what she performed…

feminism in 2010

Christine Campbell
4 comments

I’d like to talk about something a little different this week. I’ve always known lipmag is a feminist publication by nature, or at least rooted in the idea, yet somehow my pieces don’t relate to that. I find it strange, because after two years of intense internal debate and a thesis that essentially proved this…

the life and times of stefani germanotta

Her? That’s what I would have said if, in 2004, you had shown me an 18-year-old Stefani Germanotta and told me that in the next few years she would grow to become a multi-million dollar pop star known as Lady Gaga. I cannot for the life of me understand her success. What is Lady Gaga?…

why i love lady gaga

I don’t listen to much pop music. My musical tastes vary, but I tend to steer clear of crappy auto-tunes, never have a good idea of what’s on the radio and ignore a lot of mainstream music in favor of more independent or older music with some sort of tangible feeling behind it. There are,…
