She looks NOTHING like herself, and it is not that fact that she is stripped bare (no pun intended) of her wigs and make-up and shades. No she almost looks …cute. Gaga was never a “cute” looking woman, she was interesting looking, to me she had a mature face, meaning that she kind of always looked like a middle aged woman- and I am not hating — I would be hating on myself. (I am not trying to be mean or snarky, but there are people who always look 40 years old even when they are 10!) I think that it is clear that she has had work done, she got her nose did!!
In the first she looks like a young Donatalla Versace in the second..Cute
Now a celebrity getting a nose job is not breaking news however it is a bit hypocritical of Lady Gaga when she has been so outspoken about how stars getting plastic surgery inspires insecurity…
Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2011 after sporting prosthetic horns and claiming they were her ‘bones’ she said:
‘I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.’
‘And how many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery?’
Let me be honest here, I am not, have not and nor never will be a fan of hers, I think that she has worked the system using Madonna’s methodology, bringing her model of self re-creation, cutting edge fashion, provocativeness and Cher like bravado into the millenium. She is authentically talented, but also authentically manufactured as well. She has seduced this generation with exactly what they want to hear- you are perfect, “born this way”, wave your freak flag, be outrageous, as she runs around half dressed, wearing slabs of meat that would be better served to feed hungry people and carrying tea cups around whist in England. She reminds me of all the kids I went to arts school with who where so desperately trying to prove that they were cool, hip, “out there” above it all and so “artistic” that you just don’t get it…(*now there were some who were authentically out… and you could tell the difference, ironically often, they were not the cool kids)
I get it but for a chick who grew up watching Madonna create herself, Gaga is not new, or ground breaking, and Born this Way is just a remixed Madonna tune…. I just think that she is a woman who will say what people want to hear and be the voice that has not yet been heard not a bad thing in and of it’s self but she will say it whether she believes it or not. Just like her above statement says all the right things, promotes having a healthy body image and say to hell with what “the media” expects us to look like… that is all well and good until you go and get a new nose!
It’s hypocritical! and trust I am not against plastic surgery I have an issue with hypocrites that say what you wan to hear to get you to invest in them and end up being just like the rest of them. And truth be told…no one cares!! Now we care because you made yourself a liar!
I guess she can’t say that SHE was born that way anymore…snap!
oh and now that she has dropped the weight, what’s up with her body image platform- yeah a nose job supports that too huh! Ok THAT was snarky!
