Lady Gaga lands her third Rolling Stone cover in as little as two years, this time sans bubbles and a machine gun bra. Shot by Ryan McGinley, this cover is a bit more understated than her first two with Gaga looking away from the camera. I guess you can say it’s Walmart-weird and a little Step Brothers-ish. But hey, at least the hair-bow is back!
In the interview with writer Brian Hiatt, she talks about being bullied in school for “being ugly“.
“Being teased for being ugly, having a big nose, being annoying,” she says. “’Your laugh is funny, you’re weird, why do you always sing, why are you so into theater, why do you do your make-up like that?’ . . . I used to be called a slut, be called this, be called that, I didn’t even want to go to school sometimes.”
She also discusses how she feels “dead” when she’s not on stage: “I don’t feel alive unless I’m performing,” she said “and that’s just the way I was born.”
Way to drive home that point. You can read the rest of the interview when the issue hits newsstands May 27.
