This month’s issue of V Magazine marks the debut of Lady GaGa as a contributing columnist. Her first piece, titled “Piet Mondrian & Library Cards”, is a two-page length prose dedicated to discussing all those who were CCed in the heading, which included the Haus of Gaga, Little Monsters, The New York Public Library, Fashion-Sexuals and The World.
“Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to the lifestyle of glamour are masters of its history.”
“I would dream of being a rock star who dressed like Mark Bloan, walked like Jerry Hall , and had the panache of Ginger from Casino and the mystery of Isabella Blow”
“Art gives birth to new art. There is no chicken or egg. It’s molecular….The past undergoes mitosis, becoming the originality of the future.”
“After weeks of writing this article I ask out loud, ‘What do you think YSL would think of my metaphor about his collection?’ My darling hair designer Frederic replied, ‘You could ask Nan Kempner, but she’s dead.’ Now there’s a queen who never left home without her library card.”
I’m always impressed by Lady Gaga- her outfit choices, her music and “living art” attitude- Good, bad and I don’t know.
