I found these while researching a new post on the premanufactured “personality cult” of Barack Obama, which you can find here.

Enjoy.

“Eggcentric” Grammy Night Gaga Media Stampede: “Born This Way” Released

Lady Gaga performing "You and I" on ...

Does anyone REALLY believe that Illuminati Priestess “Lady Gag Me” is big on family? I am laughing so hard I can’t see. Like all other Illuminati NYC media portals for high class trash, Vogue magazine thinks Americans are stupid enough to buy their lies.  On  the same internet page there’s a link to Lady Gaga posing nude.

Yeah, those are some really great “Kali Yuga-esque” “Satanic family values” that you are demonstrating for your young American preteen fans, Miss Gaga. I’m sure you are really proud of the “bare-it-all” message you are sending to millions of young pubescent girls.

“I am quite down-to-earth for such an eccentric person.” – Lady Gaga

With the release of “Born This Way” less than 24 hours away, Vogue officially released its March cover featuring the fabulous Lady Gaga this morning.

Despite her theatrical shows, outrageous getups, wild antics, obsession with blood and semen and so on, she says she’s a family-oriented good girl.

Lady Gaga Vogue Cover: 2011

The Italian-American New York native says she prefers to be called by her real name, Stefani, in the bedroom for example. She also cares deeply for her parents.

“I obsess about his health,” she said about her father. “I’m very Italian. I call him every day. I ask my mother if he’s been smoking. They are in their 50s now.”

“They still live in the same apartment on the Upper West Side,” Gaga tells Vogue. “Nothing has changed at all since I have become a star. I am a real family girl.”

“When it comes to love and loyalty, I am very old-fashioned.”

Just one of many reasons why we love her … opulent robes, pink wigs and all. Click to enlarge Vogue’s Lady Gaga pictures below and tell us what you think:

Lady Gaga: Nude, Skateboarding in Purple

Tags: Lady GaGa

If there’s one celebrity who could pose nude, wearing giant heels and skateboarding, and not shock us in the least by doing so, it would be Lady Gaga.

Said pictures, taken for Purple magazine by famed photographer Terry Richardson, should get people talking, though they’re pretty standard for Gaga.

We can only imagine the deluge of naked/revealing Lady Gaga pictures to come with Born This Way due out soon. Nude skateboard shot after the jump:

Lady Gaga Arrives At Grammys In An Egg

Stylist Nicola Formichetti tweets that the singer is in incubation on the red carpet.

By Jocelyn Vena (@jocelyn1212)

Lady Gaga’s arrival at the 53rd Grammy Awards had the world buzzing quite early on Sunday evening (February 13). The songstress, who premiered her new song “Born This Way” on Friday, hit the Grammys in a semi-see-through egg that seemed like something of an arty reference to that song’s title.

Check out pictures of Lady Gaga’s Grammy arrival here.

Outdoing the space-age Armani Privé getup she wore to last year’s Grammys, Gaga was in the egg as she emerged from a truck and was carried by four men in yellow boxers and dresses to the carpet.

Her Twitter page gave a bit of insight into what Gaga might be up to on Sunday. “This is Nicola, Haus of Gaga: Gaga is in incubation,” stylist Nicola Formichetti tweeted on the singer’s page. “Tonight’s performance is in collaboration with Hussein Chalayan and House of Mugler. X”

Formichetti also wrote about Gaga’s big arrival on his own Twitter account. “Grammys red carpet,” he tweeted. “Lady gaga wears Mugler by nicola formichetti. Womb by hussein Chalayan. Gaga’s pryers are in haus of gaga in collaboration with Mugler. My baby is been born.”

Lady Gaga is set to perform her new song live during the Grammy telecast. The singer is up for six awards on Sunday night, including Album of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Dance Recording and Best Short Form Music Video.

Angelina Jolie’s Botox Blowout: Unphotoshopped Photos Present A Dire Warning

Doctors Explain: What’s Wrong With Angelina’s Face

February 18, 2010

Angelina Jolie was photographed in Venice, Italy Wednesday afternoon with two protruding muscles where her chin meets her neck.

The photo was not altered, as Jolie, 34, sported the same facial protrusion at the BAFTA awards in February 2009 (see bottom photo, at left).

See stars’ plastic surgery nightmares
UsMagazine.com consulted a number of plastic surgeons to find out what’s really going on because, as Beverly Hills-based Dr. Gabriel Chiu tells Us, “it’s unlikely that the banding can occur from strong facial muscles alone.”

Dr. Elie Levine, who has not treated Jolie, says that it appears she’s “received Botox to her face and likely her neck” because she shows “no wrinkles along the sides of her eyes (the crow’s feet) despite that very large smile… and her forehead is smooth.”

See what Jolie used to look like in her old modeling shots

1266506833_angelina-jolie-2.jpgBotox paralyzes muscles, causing one to “recruit other muscles that are not regularly used to twisting the neck and smiling widely” to compensate, he adds.

Dr. Chiu believes Jolie may have had a “minimally invasive procedure” to lift and suspend “the tissues in her neck, jaw line and lower face.”

Dr. Brian Glatt concurs. “Angelina appears to have had a procedure done to tighten her lower face, neck, and jaw line such as a mini or lower facelift,” he says.

Do you think Jolie has also altered her lips? See pics!

If she had a mini-facelift, Dr. Andrew Jacono says the skin was not lifted far enough back.

“Think of it like making your bed,” he says. “If you don’t pull the sheets tight enough, they’ll appear wrinkled and bunched at the corners.”

But Dr. Lyle M. Back believes Jolie has not received any cosmetic surgery. He credits the protrusion to Jolie’s “very thinned out skin — tented and pulled over the edge of the angle of her jaw” as the result of her having less than 10 percent body fat.

See how Jolie’s looks have changed over the past few years

“Body builders love to employ a variety of techniques to get their skin looking this thin so that the judges can actually see the striations and fiber lines in their muscles through their skin,” he adds.

New York Fashion Week’s Top Five Trends

Re-post courtesy of College Candy

The 5 Biggest Trends From New York Fashion Week

February 21, 2010 – 3:00 pm By Jessica- FIT

Fashion Week and all its bittersweet glory has come and gone. The last Fashion Week to be shown at Bryant Park, designers pulled out all of the tricks under their sleeves to make it unforgettable.  The big white tents, made even whiter by the snow, brought new looks into the new decade that will be sure to translate into your wardrobe.  So what will you be wearing next fall?

1. Neutrals!


Designers showed many variations of neutrals on the runway, from bold blacks shown by Vera Wang to grays and camel tones from favorites Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors.  Whites and ivories made several appearances, almost in a bridal inspired way.  What this means for you: Don’t be afraid to mix and match neutrals.  The classic fashion faux pas “Don’t wear white after labor day” is slowly but surely becoming extinct, so don’t listen to your grandmother when she reprimands you for doing so.  Tell her Thakoon said it was fine.

2. Fur, Fur, Fur.


That’s right.  PETA might disagree, but it is all about the fur for next fall…any kind, in any way.  Coats and shrugs featured bold lavish furs while some designers used fur as trimming to spruce up their looks.  If you’re a friend to the animals or don’t have thousands of dollars to drop on each outfit (who does??) don’t be outraged just yet – variations of faux fur are about to spread like rapid fire.

3. Undercover conservative.


In comparison to the spring, designers turned to more structured silhouettes creating a more conservative look.  Librarian sweaters appeared too many times on the runway to go unnoticed.  But don’t yawn just yet, designers used sequins, embroidery, fur (of course), and much more to glam up each look to take them from boring to flirty sophisticated.

4. Grunge by layers.


Jackets over vests over sweaters over dresses.  The more layers, the better.  A cardigan over a blazer, why not?  Grunge by way of draping is all the rage for next fall.  And did we mention vests? Vests, vests, and more vests.  And get excited to pair elbow length gloves with the numerous amounts of vests that are about to enter your closet.

5. LEGWARMERS!


FINALLY.  A piece of the 80’s are back!  But this time, no aerobics videos are required. Legwarmers were shown in several variations, in wool assortments, over leggings, thigh high, etc.  While you’re layering, don’t forget to slap on a pair of comfy legwarmers.  Wear something simple on top and use a pair of bold colored thigh-high legwarmers as the staple piece to your outfit.  Ask your mom if she has any in any boxes in the attic; vintage legwarmers are even better!
