Lady Gaga invokes “Metropolis” for new photo shoot

No one could ever accuse Lady GaGa of being the shy retiring type.

Being something of an attention-seeker has certainly stood the singer in good stead for her meteoric rise to fame this year.

So what better way to wrap up her successful 12 months than by taking her clothes off again – all in the name of art, of course.

The singer was snapped by acclaimed photographer David LaChapelle for a series of images that perfectly match her bizarre, sexy and outrageous personality.

And she even managed to persuade good friend Kanye West to take part, although he probably had no complaints.

Completely naked, GaGa lies in his arms with one hand covering her breast, as he stares zombie-like into the distance as a volcano rages behind them.

In what could be a subtle nod towards one of cinema’s most iconic film posters, Gaga also goes futuristic Metropolis-style as she stands on crutches over sleeping naked people, dressed in an android-esque two-piece with matching helmet and arms.

In another, she lies as though fallen from the wheelchair, on a mirrored floor in a doll-like pose, with pink afro hair surrounded by pink flowers and a blue sky.

And of course, we all know that Lady GaGa is no wallflower and no photo shoot would be complete with just one naked picture.

In what could be a subtle dig at the world’s press, the singer stares provocatively at the camera as newspaper headlines that scream scandal cover her modesty.

And in the last shot, New York-born GaGa, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, is in her birthday suit once again, strapped to a generator as electricity shoots out of her hands, head and nether regions.

The shots feature in the super deluxe limited edition of her new album The Fame Monster which contains all the original tracks from her debut CD The Fame, plus eight new ones.

Not only does it come with a booklet containing these amazing pictures, but giving fans a very unusual and very weird treat, she has also included a lock of her hair.

  1. Its gold Jerry! Gold! This stuff is always very entertaining :). I am sure you have run across, pretty fun stuff to read there too.

  2. as Metropolis conjures the inner ‘primary’ pysche of humans in which the music industry today focuses upon the ‘robot’ female in all her perverted ways that are enacted in that old film i was reading in wiki an excerpt of Hitler’s mein kampf today in an attempt to learn what the “Big Lie” means.

    I was reminded that such people like hitler and goebbel’s had access to a well-public knowledge of the psyche. For the likes of Freud, Jung, and Forel, and others had during the 1800’s already written extensively with long anaylsis on the human psyche. And here’s what Hitler had to say about the “Big Lie” that later Goebbel’s used for the Third Reich’s own self-interested needs:

    “All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true in itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie…”

    And as Carl Jung stated (he was the founder of anayltical psychology, also known as Jungian psychology: source wiki linked below):
    “Jung is considered as the first modern psychologist to state that the human psyche is “by nature religious” and to explore it in depth. He emphasized understanding the psyche through exploring the worlds of dreams, art, mythology, religion and philosophy.”

    and another artist performs a mythic image upon the stage in ala Lady Gaga form, ie. in a perverted way i add in their self-admittance of ‘being in touch with demons’ – their words not mine.

    • amazing wildy..just after we discuss all of this and she comes out with a photo shoot based on denying the links now is there?..its kanye in the 4th pic holding gaga..he looks like a zombie

      • no denying, you’re right.
        also in that picture of kanye the ‘primal’ forces of an explosive volcano and the jungle.

        • yeah its a strange pic..almost like a painting..something is familair about it but i cant put my finger on it yet

      • read this too in the “Big Lie” wiki article. Another potential outspoken person from inside the music business. I don’t know that much at all about Frank Zappa, just heard of his name. But it stated this:

        “Frank Zappa continually refers to “the Big Lie” in his book, The Real Frank Zappa Book. He uses it to describe organized religion, government, and the music industry.”

        • i had some frank zappa records a long time ago..he was regarded as being on the looney edge of rock n roll

  3. aka “the slime” – frank zappa
