Lady GaGa is, in fact, as she is reputed to be: a butterface. This only makes me dig her more. I’ve always had a thing for horsey faces.
My guess is that she’s showing her face more clearly in her videos now because the marketing department were pulling their hair out; one needs an artist that’s recognizable. That’s the conventional record biz wisdom, anyway. I wanted her to stay in her sunglasses (though clearly she won’t go gentle into giving up that wig), as that’s the perfect way to be a pop star–you doff your disguise when going home at night (or, as is likely with Ms. GaGa, in the morning), and you’re unrecognizable. Not unlike Jem. Not that there’s any immediate danger of it happening to me, but I think it’s the only way I could tolerate celebrity.
