Marking the 120th anniversary of Vogue Magazine, Lady Gaga, in a stunning fiery magenta-purple gown, graces the cover of Vogue‘s 2012 September issue. This is the second time for Lady Gaga to be featured on the cover of Vogue – the first was in 2011. Whether touring the globe with a groundbreaking extravaganza or launching an out-of-this-world fragrance, Lady Gaga is meeting the future on her own wildly inventive terms. Courtesy of Vogue, LA’s the Place brings you a little sneak-peek of Jonathan Van Meter’s profile of Lady Gaga
About her new perfume: Lady Gaga:
She said yes to Coty’s request on the condition that the company not only conjure scent notes to her specification but figure out how to create a liquid that appears black in the bottle, but when sprayed, becomes clear. (After all, she points out, “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 her Born This Way Ball tour:
The Born This Way Ball, her massive spectacle, which has just made its way through Asia and Australia and is destined next for Europe and the States. She banned video screens, instead dreaming up a “fortress” that lets her dance 50 feet above an audience of 30,000. ”I really wanted to break the mold of what modern touring is now,” Gaga explains.
On how she wants her music to affect people:
“I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius,’ ” says Gaga. “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.”
The September issue hits newsstands nationwide on August 21st and will also be available as a digital download for the iPad®, Kindle Fire, NOOK Color™, and NOOK Tablet™.
