On the September 2012 cover, the 26-year-old is wearing magenta Marc Jacobs photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Inside the issue, she’s promoting her fragrance and her music.
On her new fragrance Fame: “The fragrance is called Fame. It must be black. It must be enticing. You must want to lick and touch and feel it, but the look of it must terrify you.”
On one of the highlights of the Born This Way Ball: “We were talking about putting the show together, and I said, OK, what if I was someone’s grandma and I was going to a concert tonight. How would I know that it was a Gaga show? And we all just sort of looked at each other and said,‘The meat dress.’”
On her own music: “I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius.” I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss the person you came with that evening, or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.” – via Vogue Magazine.
