A New Face to Journalism

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

The queen of outrageous fashion choices and bizarre performances has taken on a new identity: magazine journalist. Singer Lady Gaga announced that she will begin writing as a fashion journalist for V Magazine next month.

"Each issue, Mother Monster will put pen to the page, bringing us an editorial window into her fashion multiverse," the magazine stated.

Those who read her column will get an inside look not only at the unique character of Lady Gaga, but at her unique fashion taste and choices as well.

V Magazine promoted the column through creation of the contest entitled Drawn This Way, a play off of Lady Gaga's most recent album entitled Born This Way.

In this contest, readers and fans are encouraged to create an illustration of Lady Gaga and submit them to the magazine. The winning illustration will be featured as Lady Gaga's headshot when her column is featured in the magazine.

I think this is a good move for the magazine. As a fashion magazine, who better to have as a columnist than one of the most interesting people in the fashion industry? Lady Gaga's large, faithful fan club also known as her "monsters" will surely help her column draw plenty of attention.

Even people who may not be a fan of Lady Gaga's music will be interested in the article because of her fashion statements. Whether they like the statements or not, most people will agree that they are statements that are different and interesting.

I find this interesting because she is the number Twitter user and will be able to promote this magazine very well.

I agree with you that it is a good move for the magazine. It will get you new subscribers probably because of all the Lady Gaga fans and the people who are interested in all the crazy things she is about. I think the contest is cool too. Lady Gaga is very creative and it lets people show their creative sides as well. I think it will be cool to see what all the art people come up with and the winner especially.

I'm not sure having Lady Gaga is a good idea. The way she portrays herself to the media is rather eccentric. The younger generation may be negatively impacted if she becomes to display her work through written material.
