Here’s Lady Gaga Looking Like A Homicidal Clown

In case anyone needed reminding, Lady Gaga is an artist. Not with paint or whatever, though–it’s more of an amorphous, free-floating artistry with pop hooks and big choruses and a lot of insisting that art is happening.

Rather, she is the human manifestation of the intersection between art, pop music and pop culture–well, the “exchange” of those things. Do those words make sense? Faintly. Do they mean anything? No.

The singer has begun ramping up promotional duties for ARTPOP, her forthcoming follow-up to Born This Way. Basically, she’s been going around doing eccentric things–like eating fake blood off of naked people with other performance artists and giving balls-out ridiculous interviews to fashion publications.

Yesterday, however, Lady Gaga left her hotel in West Hollywood to vogue a bit with fans–wearing makeup inspired by the cover of “Applause,” ARTPOP‘s disappointingly generic lead off single.

Everyone look closely; this is what art, pop and pop culture intersecting look like:

Apparently earlier in the day, Gaga wore the same shellack with a different all-black look (she’s a blank canvas!) and that’s here:

We’re obviously pretty okay with the goth Daria thing, though.

    The last one looks like Marilyn Manson in such a way that I wish I were actually just looking at a picture of Marilyn Manson.

    The last one reminds me of Marilyn Manson in such a way that I wish I were just looking at a picture of Marilyn Manson instead.

    Granted, she has looked better. But really, WHAT is with the Gaga hatred from The Gloss lately?

      Agreed. Moreover the point should not be about her not looking “good” because I really don’t think that is what I’m getting from it at all.
